Setbacks common at Yatesville Bocce
After a week in which three teams went undefeated, each team suffered at least one setback this week in the Yatesville Bocce League. The previously undefeated Bassler Equipment fell twice, yet still managed to remain on top of the league - only by three points over Cuz’s Bar & Grill, and eight over the Dyller Law Firm. Three teams are in a virtual logjam at the top of the table.
It was great to see league president, John Grutadauria, return to watch over the proceedings this week. Welcome back, John.
