RUSS BLACKBURN OF the Chuck 'N Duckers unleashes a throw at a group of 10 Phat Kids in the Comox Valley Sports & Social Club's recreational dodgeball league. The Chuck 'N Duckers (2-2) are the defending champs

10 Phat Kids having fun

Team is undefeated in sports and social club league dodgeball standings

With creative nicknames such as “Captain Chunk,” “Festively Plump,” and “Pork Chop” it’s easy to like the 10 Phat Kids at first. Then they hit you with a dodgeball and you’re out.

The undefeated recreational dodgeball squad from the Comox Valley Sports & Social Club combines loads of experience with solid strategy, hanging on the in-game advice of teammate Andrew Baillie. He is their own version of Patches O’Houlihan from the Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story movie starring Ben Stiller and Vince Vaughn.

Captained by Janel DeBalinhard, aka “Cupcake,” the team has rolled to a 5-0 record to date, including a 10-7 win over Thorns & Roses (1-4) last Monday at the Cumberland Jr. School gym. They will face competition in their run for the league championship from the likes of the Fighting Amish (4-1) who won 10-4 over the defending champion Chuck ‘N Duckers (2-2). The Blazing Balls (4-1) have also climbed from the basement to near the top of the standings after a 10-8 win over Vicious & Delicious (1-4).

Rounding out the standings in the 12-team league, the Ball Busters, Team Excellence and Young Guns all sit at 3-2, while the Misfits have a 2-3 record. Toaster is 1-4 and Chocolate Thunder is 0-5. The updated standings for all of the CVSSC leagues can be viewed online at www.comoxvalleysports.ca.

Registration opens Nov. 15 for winter sports leagues with the CVSSC, including dodgeball, volleyball, indoor soccer, floor hockey and the St. Patty’s Day Curling Funspiel. Visit the website or contact Scott at 250-898-7286 or scott@comoxvalleysports.ca for more info.
