Jayhawk Division Stats




Today was a relatively cool day (compared to earlier in the week) and the MOKAN participants travelled through nasty traffic to get to Leawood for the second day of games.

Game 1 - In the first game, "Texas Chainsaw Mass Choir" (who had one of the coolest names I've ever seen) defeated "Orange Goat Cheese" (whose name was pathetic in comparison) by a score of 10-3. The only major event in this game was when Smiley (the ball) was hit into a tree and David climbed up to knock it down.

Game 2 - For the next game, the group split down into two smaller games. In game 2a, "My Bum is on the Drain" (Ethan, Justin, Kara, Doug) soundly defeated "These Colors Don't Rhyme" (Cori, Joe, Grant, Mel) by a score of 10-1.

Game 3 - In game 2b, "Loop Me Up" (Robbie, Curtis, Bret, John) was defeated by "Buttercup" (Greg, Brian, Brandon, David) by a score of 10-9. This game saw Greg save a goal from a second point with a bicycle kick (never before seen in crumpets, to my knowledge). It also saw an unfortunate throw get lifted by the wind and hit Robbie's collar bone. Robbie was able to make a point out of the resulting free shot, which helped to tie the game at 9. In the end, "Buttercup" overcame and was able to put away the final point.

Game 4 - Enough people left after the second games that the group went back down to one larger game. In the third game, "Testes, Testes, 1...2......3?" defeated "Chicken Courdon Paisley" in another very close 10-9 match.

Game 5 - In the third game, "Yellow Speckled Nose Lizard" (named for a stick to Melissa's nose in the previous game) jumped to an early lead over "I Love Jeff City". Through many hard-fought 1 pointers, I Love Jeff City managed to bring the game back and even take the lead, to put the score near the end at 9-8 in their favor. A final shot by Joe sealed the deal and "I Love Jeff City" defeated "Yellow Speckled Nose Lizard" 10-8.

Some headed back home, some went to work, and others went for BBQ after the game. A good time was had by all, though, I'm sure.
