Moodachay Clinches Playoff Spot; Epsilon Rolls
By Ken Magill
Email consultant Dylan Murphy’s Moodachay became the second team to secure a playoff spot this year by beating the eWayDirect Avengers 171.88 to 133.96.
With one game to go, four playoff spots are still up for grabs.
Division 1 and Division 3 leaders, Epsilon’s Harmony Army and PL Marketing’s PL Promo, squared off and Epsilon won 151.48 to 108.62. Epsilon’s victory was a league-leading eighth in a row.
Meanwhile, Message Systems’ MS Destroyers beat Omeda’s Oh My! Omeda 158.32 to 90.26.
Message Systems’ win and PL Promo’s loss left the two tied for the lead in Division 3 with records of 7-5.
FreshAddress’s @men got their third win of the year, beating Return Path’s Spammer Slammers 107.88 to 89.96. Adding insult to injury, FreshAddress won despite having started Seattle’s defense which was on a bye.
FreshAddress also has two players on its bench who are out for the season: Houston running back Arian Foster and New York Giants running back David Wilson.
Message to FreshAddress’s team managers: Please don’t tell me you haven’t stopped managing your team. This week’s failure to set a defense was just an oversight, right? And the two injured players are on your bench for sentimental reasons, right?
I mean, who doesn’t love Arian Foster? And David Wilson? Well he’s just dreamy. But please find it in your heart to let them go and start a fully functioning team this week, okay?
In any case, the NetAtlantic Storm put up the 11th lowest point total this week. However, their opponent, Living Social’s Illegal Use of Hands, put up the 12th lowest score this week.
As a result, NetAtlantic beat Living Social by less than a point: 88.92 to 88.02.
NetAtlantic has also kept pace with the TowerData Validators in Division 2. They are tied for the division lead with records of 7-5.
Living Social’s record is 3-9.
TowerData posted the biggest blowout, beating Responsys’ Provokes a Responsys 184.28 to 87.9.
eBay Enterprise beat Movable Ink’s Inkredibles 115.98 to 102.66. eBay Enterprise has won two in a row bringing their record to 6-6.
The Inkredibles’ record is 5-7.
With one week left in regular season play and only two playoff spots locked up, this week is essentially the first playoff game for a good portion of this league.
Remember, six teams get to the playoffs this year and by my admittedly flawed reckoning, it seems that at least six teams still have a shot at making it.
Good luck and happy Thanksgiving!
