Week 2 - Who has the Glass Slipper?

Another great evening for paddle as week 2 concludes.

Wilmington may be the Cinderella story of the decade in D1 paddle as they win their second consecutive match with 3 points, this week over Huntingdon Valley. They have now reached the Vegas prediction of 6 points and we have 9 more weeks left of the season. They were blessed with a somewhat comfortable schedule as both of their opponents have only earned 1 point for the season. They face Merion next week away which should be a good test for this squad.

Martins Dam on the other hand was cursed with possible the most ridiculous schedule ever created as they played the two finalists from last year in their first two weeks and their next two matches are also against two undefeated teams. Martins was able to earn a point as they won courts 2 & 4 but dropped the match in sets. After the match Captain Dan has lobbied a complaint to the MMWAARC regarding their schedule. “This is insane, we start off with the reigning Champion P-Cricket then we get Waynesborough and now we get to look forward to Wallingford and even more improved Conestoga. I am starting to feel like Martins is the Rodney Dangerfield of D1 paddle. If we can walk away with 3 points after 4 weeks, we will be happy!”

Philly Cricket continued their winning ways as this week they hosted Merion won courts 1-3 serving notice to the rest of D1 that they must bring their “A” games on all 4 courts if you have any hopes of defeating them. Merion too has a tough schedule to start their season as they played Conestoga last week and then have Waynesborough in week 4.

Wallingford remains undefeated as they have defeated P-Country winning courts 1, 3 and 4. McGrath and Shrager dropped the first set to Patrick and Reiniger but then too the next two sets 2 and 3. Pat and Hocker were able to defeat Hughes and Furman in a three setter giving P-Country their only victory of the evening. Wallingford was able to sweep all 6 sets on courts 3 and 4. The biggest question of the evening was which would occur first, the super human hearing neighbor calling the cops on a home match or when would their prize recruit Ed Hughes win his first match of the season in a Wallingford uniform. Here are the Vegas odds: Neighbor calling 2:1, Hughes winning match 3:1, both happening on the same night 10:1.

Aronimink picks up 2 points against Greenville last night. This is earliest that Aronimink has had a 2 point victory this early in the season since the 2013/14 season. Captain Andy was proud of his team’s victory and stated after the match “we have been working hard during the off season to create a new culture at The Mink. We have had Friel and Cliff take the guys to Ropes courses on a weekly basis and doing at least one Tough Mudder a month on weekends. Regardless of this season’s final result, expect this team to be the fittest and most conditioned team in the division.”

Conestoga picked up 3 points again this week and look like their off season moves are certainly putting them in contention for a top 4 spot. This week they played Picket Post and in stunning fashion the team of Gottfried and Soule won the first two sets over Trevor and Kochis only dropping 5 games. Unfortunately, that was the only court PP would win on the evening. You would have to go back to 2014 to find a season in which Trevor lost by the 2nd week of a season.

Next week’s Match Ups:
Martins @ Wallingford
Greenville @ Waynesborough
PP @ P-Country
Wilm @ Merion
P-Cricket@ HV1
Conestoga@ Aron
