Conaway helps Legion Team keep pace with One Ball Wonders
Dougie “Fresh” Conaway’s four straight wins at the end of the match enabled the Fresh Legion Team to stay within one game of the second place One Ball Wonders. The teams tied 8-8 in their battle for second place in the Sanibel 8-Ball Pool League.
The Wonders lead-off shooter, Kelly Greten, kicked off the match with four wins over Doc Lubinski. His teammates then managed only four more wins over the next 12 games to allow the Legion to remain only one game behind in the standings.
Rich Ennis and Dave Doane had 4-0 nights for Bunt’s Ball Busters. But after winning their first eight games, the Ball Busters came apart at the seams.
Sanibel Caf’s John Earle pounded Buster’s rookie Kip Johnson 3-1 and the Caf’s Pete Mindel again surprised Buster’s Captain Buntrock with a resounding 3-1 victory. Mindel attributed his stellar play to a combiniation of his youthful vigor and his opponent’s advancing old age.
Also, signed up-to-date for the League’s year-end Singles Tournament are Rich McCurry, Bob Buntrock, Doug Gentry, Jack Dalton, Terry Ricotta, Joe Stahl, Matt Hall and “Fresh” Conaway.
