Week 3 - Season 41 - 15/4/2019

There were 27 of us last week. Welcome, all!

Standings: In Aardvark, 10 of the 11 players shifted. Very early days. The same goes for 11 of the 14 players in Madoqua. In Zyzzyva, Marion (absent) leads the pack.

Playoffs: Angela defeated Gila S. in the Zyzzyva semi-finals and will face Avril in the best-of-five finals. Either way, as Avril has already been promoted to Madoqua, Angela is now officially in Madoqua. Well done! In Madoqua, Nancy and Sharon have yet to play their playoff matches, the winner of whom will meet David in the final, and move into Aardvark.

Scores: No records broken. There were, however, three (!) 1300+ triples (Fifi, Naomi, Omri), and four 1200+ triples (David, Jack, Maureen, Raquelle). There were also two 500+ scores (Raquelle, Fifi). Not bad!

 

WWW: Maureen, Naomi

 

High Triples:

Aardvark:  Naomi 1383 ; Omri 1350

Madoqua: Fifi 1389 ; Jack 1231

Zyzzyva: Raquelle 1208 ; Gila S. 910

 

High Scores:

Aardvark: Naomi/Omri 498 ; David 466

Madoqua: Fifi 518 ; Jack 485

Zyzzyva: Raquelle 534 ; Gila S. 348

 

Player of the Week:  Naomi did well, winning three, scoring well and climbing nicely. But the award is Maureen’s out of her mini-slump. With three wins, Maureen is Player of the Week. Well done!
