Shenanigans (Blue) vs. Mean-Valued Old Men (Red): Wednesday, December 3rd

As the Water Polo Championships were nearing, both Shenanigans and Mean-Valued Old Men were looking to continue their journey of winning the championship.  The two were meeting for the semifinals, but based on the performance that each team delivered it could have been the championship.  The match started out with both teams at each end awaiting the ref’s placement of the ball in the middle.  Once the ball hit the water, both teams scrambled for possession.  This proved to be the theme for the entire match and this was due to the goalies and defenders in front of them getting the job done.  While the defenses played good for the majority of the game, there was a period in the first half where there were about 12 goals in 10 minutes.  For the other 30 minutes, only 4 goals were scored.  Going into the half, both offensive attacks had to be happy with the results that were on the scoreboard (7-7).  The second half was not as forgiving to the offenses as there were only 2 more goals scored (both by MVOM).  Could this be because of conservative play?  Well, this proved to be too much for Shenanigans and MVOM advanced to the finals for Thursday night’s championship game.

Final Score: Mean-Valued Old Men–9    Shenanigans–7

Play of the game: Shenanigans makes a behind-the-back goal in the first period to take a 1-point    lead


Friends of Satan @ Phi Delta & Kappa Delta 1: Thursday, November 13th

Both Friends of Satan and Team Phi Delta and Kappa Delta were looking to collect a victory in this one.  The game got out to a quick start with the home team gaining 3 runs in the top-half of the inning, and Friends of Satan answering with 2 of their own.  FOS’s pitcher got some momentum for his team by preventing Team PD/KD from scoring in the 2nd, and this led to his team scoring 6 runs (maximum) in the bottom of the inning to take an 8-3 lead.  Team PD/KD was showing some fight as they scored 3 runs themselves in the top-half of the 3rd to bring it within a deficit of 2 (8-6).  The story of the game was responding to adversity on the part of Friends of Satan.  They scored 4 runs shortly after the 3 run performance of Team PD/KD and added 4 more in the next two innings.  The game was called in after the top of the sixth inning due to the 6 run rule implemented by league officials.  When it was all said and done, Friends of Satan capitalized with a victory.

Final Score: 16-8 in favor of FOS

Play(s) of the Game:

–FOS outfielder makes an over-the-head catch to end the inning

–FOS 2nd baseman charges for a chopper in front of the mound and gets tangled up with the umpire and         both fall to the ground (Noone was hurt).
