As you can see the top dogs stay the same as Maya Janes 2 and Whimps are vying for top honors. Other honors needing our attention are as follows, for going 5-0 the "Gold Star" performers of the week salutes Glenny Mac of the Whimps White Gloves and Wade "True Blue" Mount of the Varsity Lettermen.
One person was left under the "Bottom of the Barrel" for going 0-5 and that was Grant Sjaarda of the Eagles. Kurt Kuiper of Leos 4 and Ben Boskie of Careys 1 were the only two people that made a 9Ball Break. Congrats to the peeps that set themselves apart.
Let's take a look at the matches and see how our players fared. At Leos it was the Varsity Lettermen lead by Wade "True Blue" Mount and his 5-0 night taking down Leos 1. Rian Merrigan helped the Lettermen with a 4-1 night in a 16-9 upset road win. Four of the Leos 1 shooters were a sub-par 2-3 for the night.
In another clash at Leos it was Leos 2 with a 15-10 besting of the Eagles 1 High Fliers. Mike Hekrdle lead the way for Leos 2 with four wins and got three important wins from each of the cues of Jami Baedke, Danny Doty and Jeff "Fleet" Gilbertson. Team "Viagra" was lead by Larry Edwards with four wins and "Downtown" Dick Brown who was a three game winner.
Leos 3 took the trek to Burbank and wound up on the short side of a 15-10 contest with the Whimps "White Gloves." Glenny Mac was 5-0 for Whimps and got four wins from Rob Lectbieter. Cam Nettestadt was the lone three game winner for Leos 3. Maya Janes 3 held home court and delivered a 14-11 beating to Bunyans 2.

Adam Finke was a four game winner for the 9Ballers. Ben Boskie and Jared Heiden assisted with three wins each for the Careys 1 cause. I will admit to being a complete anchor and keeping my team from victory by going 1-4 for the night. Oh, the shame of it all. That's how the games played out.
