Sundowners: Chiefs 'i.e.'
one point behind Characters
by Misty Volaski
Chiefs "i.e." needed a big win Tuesday to overtake
second-place Village Idiots Tuesday at Soule Park Golf Course,
and with four players scoring at least 20 points, they did just
that - with several points to spare.
The Chiefs, who faltered in the first half of the season, are
now just one point behind #&?*!@$%, the overall leaders of
the Sundowner's Golf League.
Paul Forchione, Pat Sullivan and Steve Streich led the Chiefs
in high points, each adding 21 to their team's overall score.
Robbie Robinson's 20 points did not count for the team's total
as only the top three scores are used.
#&?*!@$% has retained its top position for the past two weeks,
but many others are not far behind. And because the top three
teams have changed throughout the second half of the season,
more than half the field still has a legitimate shot at the Callender
#&?*!@$%'s round of 57 points - still three points better
than the average - leaves them especially vulnerable to a charge
from the red-hot Chiefs. Only one #&?*!@$%, Rich Wilde,
placed anywhere on the high points or low gross lists.
Other teams, namely Sammy's Ropers and the Sambaggers, are on
a late-season surge. Roper Marshall Lopez nabbed high points
honors, along with Bugsy's Bandit Mark Sauer - both earned 23
points for their teams, and the Sambaggers Sam Williamson and
Terry Gustafson posted a 33 and 34, respectively, bringing the
league's low-handicappers up from seventh to third place.
The top three teams from the second half of the season, plus
two wild card teams based on the total combined points for both
halves of the season, will join the first-half winners Aug. 10
to determine the Callender Cup winnner.
