There was a little rain in Dallas on Saturday, particularly if you were playing later in the afternoon, so I’m not sure how long it will take to get some of the 4.5 scores in. Here’s a recap of what we have so far.
4.5 A – We haven’t learned a lot in this flight yet but I really don’t think there is much to learn. Greenhill and McKinney have posted big wins over Royal Oaks and Samuel Grand but that was expected. Rossouw’s troops should sleepwalk through this flight.
4.5 B – Not many scores posted here yet but my question for week one was answered when Oak Creek beat Lakes 3-2. There were FOUR three setters in this match, with each team winning two of them. This one was expected to be close and it was. This will be an interesting flight to watch all season with several good teams in it. Next week I’d say the Brookhaven/Harllee versus Lifetime/Arcaria match will be of the Match of the Week.
4.5 C – I was curious about the SpringPark versus Village match but it hasn’t posted yet. I’ll keep an eye out for it. TBar took a 4-1 win over Gleneagles who had a good 40s run. Next week it looks like the Huffines/Hammond versus SpringPark/Aguilar match will be one to watch.
4.0 A – In last week’s MOW it looks like McKinney didn’t get the memo, rolled out a suspect lineup, and lost a very close 3-2 match. Maybe they are relying on the automatic QT birth. High Point should sail through the rest of this flight.
4.0 B – Oak Creek, McKinney, Huffines and Greenhill separated themselves a little from Brookhaven and SpringPark in week one. We will have Oak Creek and Greenhill in week two so someone has to give one back quick.
4.0 C – Huffines/Jayaram made a bit of a statement sweeping McKinney/Oh. Looks like Huffines, Greenhill/Ohl and Canyon Creek/Patterson to duke it out here.
4.0 D – The best 4.0 matches will be in this flight with all four undefeated teams squaring off against each other. McKinney/Bazan faces Oak Creek/Iyer while LB Houston/Gordon faces Garland/Sisk. It won’t be over after two weeks but it will be pared way down.
