Cats and dogs in dodgeball duel

Good action in Comox Valley Sports & Social Club league

On opening night of the Fall Intermediate Dodgeball League season, two teams in particular went at it like cats and dogs.

After a number of seasons near the top of the Comox Valley Sports & Social Club’s dodgeball rankings, the Thundercats found a team announcing it was taking aim straight at them by re-branding themselves as the Lightning Dogs. The former Chuck ‘N Duckers team made the switch complete by reversing the Thundercats black and red team colours for their new jerseys and adopting a logo of a dog eating a Thundercat.

It was a fun and friendly jab at their rivals, and one that ended short of its intended goal, with the Thundercats prevailing by a 10-7 count. But the Lightning Dogs (2-2) continue to show they mean business by keeping close enough in the standings to hope for a rematch in the playoffs with the undefeated Thundercats (2-2).

A couple of other teams have shown they shouldn’t be overlooked in the playoff race either, with That Team sporting a perfect 4-0 record and the defending champion Grease Balls sitting at 2-1. The Ballistics (2-2) are the only other team to currently sit at a .500 record or better in the nine-team league. Aiming For the Fat One (1-2), Piggy Back Attack (1-2), Super Attack Squad (1-3) and the Cleveland Steamers (0-4) round out the standings with the next set of games slated for Wednesday, and the always-interesting Halloween night games.

The CVSSC currently has six leagues in five different sports running this fall, with the full standings and information on all of the co-ed leagues available at its website at www.comoxvalleysports.ca. Registration opens on Nov. 15 for the winter leagues, which start up in January and include sports leagues in dodgeball, volleyball, indoor soccer and floor hockey. Visit the website or contact Scott at 250-898-7286 or scott@comoxvalleysports.ca for more information.
