2015 Suburbs Men’s Adult – Week 5 (July 22)

Updated: July 24, 2015

We headed back to the Softball diamond for Week 5 and now with those Games in the rear view mirror, just two weeks remain in the Regular Season!  Week 6 will be the Volleyball Tourney where a ton of points are on the line and then the Regular Season finale will be Flag Football.  This past Wednesday Night, it was a story of the rich getting richer.. The 3 Teams atop the Standings entering the Week all got Ws to further the gap..   We had some technical difficulties with videoing this week at the Softball Games so there’s no highlights this week but we’ll be sure to have extra for you guys in next week’s video! Ok let’s Rank ’em!

Power Rankings

1. Team The Alley in Highwood – Currently tied for 1st with 75 points.

The Alley kept their consecutive points streak alive last week in Bowling.. It wasn’t their best outing but the moral of that story is they always do what needs to be done.. It’s been FOREVER since this group has lost a head to head sport..  We are talking YEARS since they’ve lost in hoops, flag football or softball and unfortunately for the rest of the League.. That’s what the Playoffs are all about.  They defeated Team The Karyn Collection in a Softball rematch of the past two Championship Games and once again came out the victor.. Team BBQ Pit is still dead even with them in the Standings though, so no time to relax whatsoever..

2. Team BBQ Pit – Currently tied for 1st with 75 points.

Pulled out one of the crazier Softball Ws we’ve had in the Men’s Adult League (in all 4 years of it).. They won 20-19 in a Game that went down to the final swings.. Just an offensive explosion.. With the W they stay deadlocked atop the Standings with #1 Team The Alley.. Volleyball is a sport where you can pick up points on the Alley (like Bowling).. Those are few and far between.. If Team BBQ Pit wants to lay claim to the #1 seed in the Playoffs, next week is critical!

3. Team Cy Fredrics – Currently in 3rd with 55 points.

Keeping pace with the top 2 Teams this week was #3 Team Cy Fredrics who are still certainly within striking distance of the #1 seed before the Playoffs begin!  They’ll need a big performance in VBall next week and then they have #2 Team BBQ Pit in Flag Football to close the season.. That Game will be worth 25 points and currently the difference between Team Cy Fredrics and the top squads is just 20..  They are right there.  Volleyball is always hard to predict but their group seems primed for a run next Wednesday Night!

Rest of the Pack (Alphabetical Order)

Team Dr. Jacob D.D.S. – Currently tied for 4th with 30 points.

Team The Karyn Collection – Currently tied for 4th with 30 points.

Didn’t get the Softball W they were looking for but historically they’ve been a stronger VBall squad..  A strong performance next week and a W in Flag Football the following week can land them in the Top 3 seeds before the Playoffs start, which means they have one less Elimination Game to worry about!  Time to go to work!

Team SLA Insurance – Currently in 6th with 0 points.

That’s it for this week! Have a great weekend and see everyone at the VBall Tourney!
