Four teams remained undefeated by night’s end, and two are in the same division. With an extra game played, Whippersnappers (3-0-1) stayed atop the Steamboat Division with a convincing 7-3 win over Team IX (0-3), which drops five points behind Lyons in the Stove Division.
After its tie last week Whippersnappers needed a victory this week as newly-minted Fifteen also won to improve its record to 3-0, still one game in-hand on the Steamboat leaders. Fifteen was able to topple Team XVI, 4-2, in a tight, six-end match.
Cs+Ds (3-0) took down JEMM, 10-5, in one draw. The win puts the Eddie Perrino-skipped team a two wins ahead of their nearest opponent in the Chestnut Division, though each other team has one less game played. The loss drops JEMM (1-2) to third place in the Stove Division, but that’s a race far from decided.
And in the Buckwheat Division, Schuylkill County Blind Squirrels took full advantage of its game in-hand, defeating Boss Hog-Line, 6-3, in a late-night draw. The Squirrels (2-0-1) are now a full game ahead of the rest of that tight division race as the league enters the break. BHL drops to 1-1 with the loss, trailing the leading Cs+Ds in the Chestnut Division.
Two teams also earned first victories last night as Cracked Ice defeated WINOs in an intra-Chestnut Division battle, 7-3, and in doing so moves ahead of them in the premature standings. Goody’s ended its tough-luck run with an 11-3 win over Schoolhouse Rocks! in an early draw. Goody’s (1-2-1) moves into second place in the Stove Division with the win.
* Correction: We erroneously reported that Cs+Ds were scheduled to face Lyons on June 1. Instead of Lyons, Cs+Ds faced JEMM.
