The other members of the "Gold Star" group for this week are Todd Radigan, Nathan Bork both shooting for league leading Maya Janes 2, and from second place Whimps, Glenny Mac and Rob Whitegloves.

So, it's on to the play by play to see who whipped the back side of whom. Maya Janes 1 took a cruse to "Beautiful downtown Burbank" for a session with the Whimps White Gloves. Whimps dusted off the cues and racked the balls for a 20-5 defeat of MJ1. Interestingly enough was the fact that Whimps won 4 of the 5 games in each of the five sets. Maya Janes did manage to not get swept each and every set. Glenny Mac and Rob were 5-0 for Whimps with Mike winning 4 games to urge along the pace. MJ1 had 2 shooters that won two games each. This big victory pushes Whimps into second place. League leaders Maya Janes 2 was on the road to visit the Varsity 2 for a clash with "Banger " and his men.
Todd Radigan and Nate Bork both shot "lights out" and posted 5-0 nights. Barry "Rock n' Roll" Brown laid down a heavy groove and four wins to push MJ2 to a 19-6 win over the Varsity 2 shooters. Jason "Banger" Bengford won three to lead his team. In another 19-6 beating, The Eagles 1 soared high above Bunyans 2 and white-washed the Bomber's windshields. Crafty veteran Dick Brown, lead the high fliers with a perfect 5-0 night . Mr. Brown received some help from Cliff Deverell and Clark Lewison who, had four wins each. Bunyans 2 captain, Blaine Schoellerman had two wins to lead his team.
At the Char Bar, Josh Kimlicka and Ryan "Dino" Dineen each pounded out four wins to cruise past the Careys 9Ballers by a score of 16-9. Josh Biever and Dustin Schemp each holed three 9Balls to assist the Char 2 in its win. A sick and "totally" under the weather "MOJO Reiser" arrived late and won four games to save the Careys bacon.
The "Other" Char Bar team was on the road to visit the Eagles 2 team and dished out a 16-9 besting at the local nesting ground. Case Allison and Husker were four game winners for Char 1. Troy and Bill Willroth each banged out three wins to stir the coals of victory. Tim Dooley and Rod "The Bod" Tieman were three game getters for the Eagles 2 team.

Luke Muhlbauer, Mike Stewart and Wade Mount helped the cause with three wins each for the Varsity 1 team. Careys 2 was topped out by the dynamic duo of Colleen Zea and Bobby Langner who each had a 9Ball break and won three games.
In a battle of smoke and mirrors, Leos 3 took down Leos 1 by a score of 15-10. Balanced scoring and superior guile were the tools needed to reign supreme for the night. All five of the Leos 3 shooters were three game winners. Mark "Stick" Clark was also a three game winner for Leos 1 to pace his team.
