Boule Disparity Creates Automatic Defensive Positioning

Tough day for my team. We had two teams of 4 players each - meaning: 16 boules in play. Unfortunately, it took us 4 or 5 boules to beat the close boule - leaving a disparity of boules... 7 boules for the opposition to use, and only 3 or 4 boules for us (after having depleted our pointers). This forced us into a defensive position almost immediately (stunting the shooting aspect of our team because the shooters now had to be the pointers). Upon reflection, I should have mixed up the "batting order" a bit earlier -- perhaps rolling in the initial boule ust to keep us at a 1:1 boule use ratio. Who can really say how it'd turn out?
