Sanibel 8-ball pool league results
Bunt’s Ball Busters beat back a strong challenge by second place Sandycappers to maintain its hold on the league lead. Ball Busters Dave Doane and Bob Buntrock posted 3-1 wins over Jeff Brown and Kevin Pottorf. Jack Dalton and John Riegert again led the Sandycappers with two wins each over Rich Ennis and Ken Rasi.
The teams meet only once more before season end on March 16, so it appears that the Sandycappers need to give up trying to beat the Ball Busters and concentrate on maintaining its narrow lead over third place Sanibel Caf.
Pete Mindel led Sanibel Caf to a narrow 9-7 win over Fresh Legion Crew with a 3-1 thumping of Jerry Welker. The rest of the Caf crew, Rich McCurry, Joe Mason, and Randy Carson, managed two wins each over Doc Lubinski, Nate Buffan, and Becky Skog. Sanibel Caf has now pulled to within three games of second place Sandycappers and the two teams meet each other for the last time on Feb. 16.
Island Lifer Tom Walters posted his first 4-0 outing as he pounded Motley Crew Captain Tom Yorgey to lead the Lifers to a 9-7 victory. Motley Crew shooter, Steve Gordon, arrived from Chicago just in time to rack up three wins over Lifer ace Gary Murza. Kelly Greten and Matt Hall had two wins each for the Lifers as did Chip Gelpi and Dave Kinder for the Motley Crew.
