It’s Sunday morning. Sitting in bed. Two dogs at my feet. Scratch that, one dog is on the floor. Slacker. Wife also in bed. We’re a little hung over. But it’s a perfect time to do some LAOUT stuff. Who doesn’t do their best work at 9AM hung over on a Sunday? So let’s get one of these recaps up. On Thursday, Scoober Divers played Lunch Break, and we have a first time recapper Brock Jensen of S.D. to give the story.
Scoober Divers were excited for their drive on Thursday where the goal was to find for 15 coins. Sadly we forgot to eat breakfast and we had trouble focusing and looking for coins.
We were very frustrated because we had only found a few coins when our goggles got foggy and we could no longer see and had to take a break. Luckily after the break we had better luck finding coins. Unlucky for us there were other divers who were just finding coins faster than us. After we were diving for a while we decided to take a lunch break and took a second to count our coins. Sadly we only had 4 coins, but the other divers out there had 8. We were a little discouraged, but knew we could do a better job and finding coins.
When we went back after our lunch break we knew time was not our friend, because our tanks were running low on air and we would soon not be allowed to search anymore. We went out with a fury to find the coins as quickly as possible. After our Lunch break we were able to find coins at a rapid rate. Just as we were approaching our goal of 15 and felt like we would make it in time, the other divers started snatching coins we felt like we could have gotten. The other divers wouldn’t give up on their goal to get to 15 coins before us. In a hard fought search to get 15 before the opponent we were fighting for one last coin when our tanks ran out of oxygen and we had to call it a draw at 13 Coins each.
Shout out to Lunch Break for great sportsmanship at the end, it was a hard fought game with a lot of great plays from both teams.
I heard this game also had a near miss ending with a potential game winning score that got called back on a call/violation of some sort. So it almost didn’t end in a tie, but those pesky lights.
It ends up being Lunch Break’s 2nd tie of the season. And that, ladies and gentlemen, ties a season record. The only other team in Winter League history to have two ties in a season was Tarmac, in their first season of 2005. Over the course of the next 13 years, Tarmac would get three more ties in their history which ties the record of 5 all-time ties with Marshall.
This is to say that both the season record and career record for ties is a first place tie.
