Led by twin candidates for rookie of the year Bobby BALLGAME McNeill and Mike PALLINO Palermo, the Lobbers turned off the heat on the Soupie’s. By winning three games the Lobbers have their eyes set on fifth place. Team captain Ralph Bagarella nursing an ACL injury was quoted ” As you can see from my x-rays my bone is doing well and I should be at 100 percent by next week.”
Team DaVinci has widened their lead for first place by three games. Dan McKenzie turned out to be a great draft choice as he led his team past The Super Mario’s. The loss by the Mario’s coupled by two wins from Pallinovino has led to a two way tie for second place.Returning from a bocce retreat in Mexico, team captain Joe Quartarone took two wins from the sliding Russ’s Rollers.
As I said last week, watch out for the Sharks who have two club champions on their roster. The Sharks rolled past The Flying Shamrocks. Vegas has now posted the Sharks co-favorites at 2-1 to win the championship.
With just 4 weeks away from the conclusion of the regular season, its obvious that Team DaVinci is the team to beat for first place. As for the championship, their are a few teams that are peaking now and may be a threat to take it all.
The final weeks should be a lot of fun.
See you all next Sunday and thanks to all of the veterans out their and from the Lord above for good friends, health and bocce.
The Comish (Ralph Bagarella)
