RBVL Heads Down the Homestretch

By Joe McGivney                                                          

The Rockaway Beach Volleyball League was greeted in week 8 with more beautiful weather at Riis Park.  Will it ever end?  A moderate wind churned things up a little bit but the conditions were really close to perfect.  Can it continue next week?  And the two weeks after?  Let’s hope so.  Position week featured many key battles for placement in 8 of the 10 divisions.  Only the Beach and Moon divisions had regularly scheduled games.  Here are the results of the battles between the top two teams in each division.  In the Ocean, 2nd place team Freedhand’s beat Kobeyaki 3-2; in the Ocean Breeze, JG Electric zapped the Mighty Crom 4-1; in the Wave, Kiss My Ace upset frontrunner Pico bar 4-1; in the Beach Breeze, Kevin C. Buckley’s Sandstorms whooped RBNY PT 4-1; in the Boardwalk, Breezy Point Lumber edged It’s All Good 3-2, winning game 5 by a 21-19 score; in the Sun, Rock Beach shut out division leader Newtown Sharks and jumped into a tie for first place; in the Sun Ray, Le Greann broke their tie for first with a 3-2 win over Bulloch’s Tows in the Sands; in the Star, DysFUNctional only won 1 game against the Downtown Diggers and barely held onto their first place position.  The pennant races are starting to tighten up as the stretch run to the playoffs begins. 

 

The Invisible Girl appeared for Casino Auto Body and so did the Visible Girl, who happened to be invisible last week.  Brianna, Katie and Lauren spearheaded Casino to a tight 3-2 victory over the Sand Spikers.  That meant Emergency Girl, Alana, got the night off for a change.  What a treat for Casino to see HOF former player Anna stop by for a visit from the West Coast.  Coach Rocky’s beach chair dates back to his high school graduation in the early seventies when he received it as a gift but the gray vintage duct tape holding it together was from a more vintage year, say, around 1990.  It’s All Good is battling for a championship in the Boardwalk but has another dubious record at stake as well.  No one is sure who has more runner-up finishes in league history but informal discussions point to Abbracciamento’s and It’s All Good in a dead heat.  Neither Rocky nor Bugsy wants to win this battle.  The King is dead!  TBG just gave way to TBDL – The Big Disabled List.  He was unable to answer the bell for game 6 after a very rough concert in Prospect Park the other night. continue
