Week 6 Power Rankings:
Angelo's Restaurant (-)
The leagues best defence plus the MVP front runner, as well as depth and shooting? This team is on fire and shows no signs of slowing down. With multiple scoring options the basic 2-3 defence won't work against this squad. Teams should look to get creative on defence or get used to seeing Angelo's at the top of our power rankings week after week.
2. Super Simple Sheets (+1)
After a blow out win in week 6 SSS sits in 2nd place in the league standings with a +50 points differential. The leagues leading offence proved they can win games with key peices of their team missing. At full strength this team is pushing for the 1 spot. As Bob Tierney returns to the line up this team looks to cause mayhem for defences.
3. Make Your Move Kingston (+1)
MYMK sitting at 3-2 was short handed their captain Sean Perrin, their MVP candidate Josh Huttinga and recent pick up Ray Dickman in their week 6 loss to Angelo's Restaurant. Losing by 11 to the 1-seed gives them the slight nod for the 3 spot over 4Life and Rideau who also have a case. Returning to full strength MYMK should end up back in the win column week 7.
4. 4Life Fitness (+1)
4Life Fitness sits at 3-2 and only holds loses to the 1 and 2 seeds. Even with the blow out loss 4Life sits 3rd in league standings with 2 scorers averaging 16+. With the second highest scoring offence 4Life looks to bounce back in their week 7 match up with Eldridge Electric.
5. Rideau Realty (-3)
This league is super balanced and with losses to the 6 seed and 7 seed this year Rideau slips to 5. With a week 7 game vs. Angelo's, Rideau can pick up a win and climb back up the rankings. Rideau vs Angelo's is the week 7 game of the week!
6. Ewyn Weight Loss (-)
Ewyn picks up their second win of the year in fashion knocking off last weeks 2 seed (power rankings). Burns has solified himself as an MVP candidate and Ewyn can make some noise if they can beat Super Simple Sheets in their week 7 match up.
7. Might Valley Coffee (-)
This weeks game of the week did not disappoint as MVC won a tight one 50-46 over Eldridge Electric. MVC had more balanced scoring this week and looks to continue the momentum in their week 7 matchup.
