A week of rain and flooding, and beautiful sunny day of bocce. That’s how we roll!
Lots of information to cover, so lets get right to it.
Mayhem & Deboccery played Experienced Ball Handlers in what turned to to be a closely contested match. Experienced Ball Handlers showed their experience by winning a close first game 11-9. In the second game Mayhem & Deboccery bounced back to win 11-5. Then Experienced Ball Handlers won the day with an 11-4 final game win.
Another close game was played between The Rookies and Jay & Silent Botch. After getting blown out the first game 11-3, the Rookies started to get the best of things. They won a close second game 11-9 and then lost a heart-breaking third game 11-9. Close good game all around.
The late game of the day was played between Drunk Camels and Tiny But Mighty. This game took a while, was spirited, and if you noticed was actually a really great game. Drunk Camels won the first game 11-7, and Tiny But Mighty came back to win the second game 11-9. The third game was played in the sunset and through into the dark with Tiny But Mighty winning in overtime 13-11.
The best game of the day was played between two teams at the top of the standings, Thunderballz and For the Love of Bocce. For the Love of Bocce took an early game one lead, but Thunderballz only had one loss on the year for a reason and would not go down easy. They came back to force overtime, before eventually falling 12-10. In the second game, Thunderballz took their late first game momentum and used it to carry themselves to a big 11-3 win. The third game could have gone in either direction, but For the Love of Bocce got the 11-9 win. Great day for them, and arguably the best win anybody has had all year.
