Sanibel Cafe making a late run at third place position
Rich McCurry, Jack Dalton, Pete Mindel and John Earle each posted two wins to lead bottom-dwelling Sanibel Caf to an 8-8 tie with first place Bunt’s Ball Busters.
The tie ruined the Ball Buster’s bid to win 21 straight matches in this year’s League play. The tie also moved Sanibel Caf to within 12 games of third place Fresh Legion Crew and sets up a final battle for third place next Monday night, the final night of the 2009-10 season.
Joe Mason’s perfect 4-0 night led second place One Ball Wonders to a 10-6 victory over the Fresh Legion Crew. His efforts helped the Wonders clinch second place.
Next Monday, the Wonders will try to hand Bunt’s Ball Busters its first defeat of the season to partially erase the sting of sitting 64 games behind the League leaders.
With the late entry of Tom Hensel and Kip Buntrock, the League’s year-end singles tournament now has 20 players who have paid their $20 entry fee. The tournament is set for Monday, March 8 starting at 6 p.m. at American Legion Post 123. The game is 8-Ball, single game, double elimination. Spectators are welcome.
