Fall Bocce Starts Tonite, 9/5/18

Looking for Bocce Volunteers

Another fun season of bocce quickly approaches, and I want everyone to know that enrollment is just as strong as our Spring-Summer League.

With the growth of our League we also have many more moving parts and I am looking for people that may have a little extra time on a Wednesday and/or Thursday, to assist.

Right now I am looking for 2 people to coordinate food for those two nights. One person for Wednesdays, one for Thursdays.

Their responsibilities would be to insure that  a particular nite was covered throughout the Season, by either scheduling (asking) someone to cook or bring food. They could ask individual Teams, and also would email or text our Board Members. In the event no one is able, they would order pizza or a takeout, and the Club, in that instance would provide the funds.

Thanks, and here are this week’s Schedules again:

Wednesday Games   9/5/18

Teams (1.Provost) (2.Cooke) (3.Bonadies) (4.DiGregorio) (5.LeDonne) (6.Polizoti) (7.Placella) (8.Postale) (9.Pollone) (10.Brodeur) (11.Dadalt) (12.O’Malley)

Your Fall Bocce Schedule is Here!

Southbridge Italian Club Fall Bocce Starts 9/5/18 !

Ok, everyone, we will begin our Fall Bocce this coming Wednesday and Thursday as planned.

Should be lots of fun as usual, but we are making a few changes, so Captains, please read here, and pay special attention to the rule books being handed out next week with your Schedules.

Beginning this Fall Season, we would like the Captains to check measurements and call out the points. This will begin by having Captains assign an end Captain to the opposite side of their court. Now there will be 1 Captain at each end of the court (from each Team) to witness and call out who shoots as well as points.

Only Captains are to view the situation and determine who throws next. In the event of Captains being unable to determine a point, you can have a League Official step in to make a measurement or call.  There should not be a problem here, and many Leagues across the Country use this method without problems. This is a recreational, fun, league, and I am holding the Captains accountable to keep it that way.

Thank You for all your support in keeping this League going. It’s been a great experience for all, and we are looking forward to continued growth.

Bring your friends down for a great time this week….and there will be some great food as always!

Monaco Wins Bocce Championship !

Champs! Pictured are Sal LeDonne, Lorenzo Monaco..Team Members were: Marcus Gaudet, Myles Gaudet, Cale McSweeny, and Ryan Diggle..not all present for photo.

Team Monaco Overcomes Early Deficit

A great final Bocce match was observed by all those attending this past week.

After falling behind to a very hot Team Santilli, Team Monaco was able to inch back slowly and take the lead for good in the final 2 frames of the match.

Early on, Team Santilli was racking up the points getting ahead by as much as five points. In a match such as this, a margin hard to overtake.  Especially versus a team that hadn’t lost a playoff game.

Suddenly the score was tied at 11 and the crowd was loving it. Team Monaco then was able to creep ahead in those final two frames and won on a 3 point roll in the final frame. The game was everything one could expect from two very good Teams.

Thanks to all for a great Season.

Thursday Bocce Playoffs..Tonite 8/16

Thursday’s Schedule..and Wednesday’s results..

 

Team Santilli Stays Undefeated in Playoff Competition

Team Santilli has been on a roll, {no pun intended} since these playoffs have begun, and continued their hot streak by winning both of their matches last nite.

All the Teams played well with Jim Ciprari’s Team splitting their two games as well as Team Postale. Being double elimination, both those Teams remain in the playoffs, but must trod through the losers bracket to get to the Championship..

Teams Brodeur and Team Polizotti also were successful in advancing to next weeks playoffs with only 1 loss each.

Congrats to all, every Team played extremely well, including those that did not advance to the next series of games. Most every game could have gone either way….luck of the roll.
