Spring 2010: Lunch League Champs: Arch Stanton

    Disappearing Vladi Doesnt Cost his team as Arch Moves to Finals Anway Asks him to stay home next week
    Arch Stanton 84 Of Mice & Manischewitz 72

    Longest Write-up Title Ever? I think so, but I'm not shortening it! It will make up for the short write-up I hope.  After another devestating playoff loss (at least it wasn't in the finals, right!?) I got to head to the scoreboard and keep stats for this one. Hooray!

    Without Vladi I thought we had some serious upset potential in this game.  We basically whittled the game down to Chise vs Majic, the two MVPs the Lunch League has ever know (oh yea, spoiler alert, Chise will win the MVP Award when it comes out tomorrow, can I scoop my own awards?!).

    So as expected, both marquee players came out with guns blazing.  But it was the contributions from Arch Stanton's other guys that gave them the early edge.  Garrett "The Animal" Tingle was aggressive on both ends, and as you can see in the box score, nearly pulled off a TDub in the playoff game. Talk about a time to step it up.  Speaking of which, I haven't seen The Greek play this well since last St. Patty's day and he immediately went out drinking, then disappeared for the next two months. Is that going to happen again?!

    For M&M, they had guys step up as well.  Mike Trostel played the best game of his short CAC career and was all over the place. Between nabbing steals, finishing on the break and crashing the boards, the kid was key to M&M's early success. 

    But still, they found themselves trailing 49-40 after Arch ripped off an 11-0 run early in the second half.  Chise apparently just used the first half to get warmed up and was in the process of beginning to drop 31 second half points.  The winner of Saugus' annual (and oh so prestigious) GOAT, Chise found his stroke over the weekend and unlike myself, avoided adding to his risk of contracting skin cancer. Did anyone else notice how red I was? Could barely lift my arms.

    Enough of the excuses!  Chise was heating up, the Greek was still pouring it on, and M&M had no answer.  Majic took a season low 18 3s (jokes and jokes and jokes) and it wasn't enough . Ryno was taking advantage of his mismatch downlow but they couldn't keep pace with Arch's prestigious offense.  Man, Vladi better not ruin their chemistry next week, this team really has a chance to win it all, and we know how he disappears in the second round (even if this in the Finals) of the playoffs.

    So who ya go, Arch Stanton, winners of 8 straight, or Still Smokin' the deadliest offense in the league.  Pick Your Side! Good luck to both teams on Wednesday at Noon, don't miss a minute!
