Balanced competition: Just three teams remain unbeaten after Week 2

After two weeks of League play, there are just three unbeaten teams.

Two of those teams reside in the Fell Conference. Team Piatt upset defending champion Team Lyons, 8-1, in an 8 p.m. draw. For Skip Alison Piatt, the win total matches her team’s total from the entire hard-luck 2010 Summer League.

Also keeping a perfect record is Team Grassi, which won its draw over Goody’s despite only having one regular player present.

In the Smith Conference, the Squirrels survived its second scare and nail-biting final end and won a tight draw against Team Maas to improve to 2-0.

Here are recaps and scoring lines from all of the April 5 draws.
