"8" Unlucky for our Adversary

I've heard from our French players that "8" is an unlucky number for the French. Friday's game proved this to be true as Pat/ Maury/ Kevin were stuck on 8 points as Tim/ Raphael/ Jeff steamed ahead to a 13/8 victory.

Today's team composition was pretty fair: Tim has become an excellent shooter - he's reliable for 80 percent of his shots. Then Raphael is the very stable pointer - with his signature "Raphael Push Pointing" to move the enemy positions aside. I've been pointing better than shooting lately - perhaps due to the extreme distances of the cochonnet laid down by Monsieur Binkow whose tennis-arm puts the cochonnet at 14 meters!

Maury's strengths are definitely in the pointing realm coupled with strategy - but he's pushed adversary boules out of the way more frequently these days. Pat - always good as a mileu (all-around player with a very strong "Pat the Rocket" shot, and a mindful pointing. Kevin, also a great pointer - but his teams rely upon his expert surgical shooting to win them points.
