NICK P. TOP DOG

 

So far this year, even Nick would tell you that he hasn’t exactly played up to par. He has always been consistent over the course of the season, but this year has been a challenge. Friday night was breakout night for Nick “P” Piantoni as he roared back to life with a huge night tossing eighteen ringers that included 2 doubles and two takeaways. He finished at 3-2 (both losses were close with me as a partner with no redeeming qualities) and had a night high 12.8 ppg. He starting to show tournament form just at the right time with the VFW fundraiser looming.

Joe “Fish” Somers had a strong showing going 3-1 with 11 ringers and 11.5 ppg. He is currently fourth overall. Tommy “Two Times” Michaud was also 3-1 with almost identical stats. He also finished at 11.5 ppg. Tony “The Tiger” Immordino won all of his matches going 5-0 with 15 ringers and 10.2 ppg. Last week’s top dog Harry “Armpits” Hampton continued to shoot well finishing at 1-2 with 11 ringers and 10.0 ppg.

Next week will mark the halfway point of the regular season. We are currently playing with the smallest contingent of players in the history of the club. We will still employ the same playoff criteria as in the past. You will need to have played 60% of the max number of games played to qualify for the main playoff slate. (currently that number is 17 games) Top four get the first round bye. Next six snag a wild card berth, and the rest play for seeds 11 and 12. Just keep in mind that number of games played will be a factor as we move along.

Thank you to Mike K and Doug L. for providing the food this week. I am still eating it. Next week, Tommy is bringing and the week after is open. Let’s try to get everyone out the next few weeks. See you all down the road.
