Amazingly, all the top eight teams threw at least one perfect game. Behind Josh & TJ's five perfect games was Matt & Derek, who tossed two perfect games. The other remaining six teams all threw one perfect game. In a game between Eric & Bob B and Bob G & Tim, the game extended to overtime with Eric & Bob B still perfect. After keeping perfect through one overtime round, Eric & Bob B would record the first overtime perfect game of the season, claiming the $15 gift card prize for being the first team this season to accomplish the feat. Both Eric & Bob B chose gift cards to Applebees. With recording five perfect games this week, Josh Greenauer joins Eric Klavoon as the only two players in league to have reached over 100 perfect games in league play.
In addition to a plethora of perfect games, a total of five Instant Wins were thrown. Of those five, Jon threw two of them. The other Instant Wins were thrown by Dana Misenheimer, Kenny Campbell, and Josh Bewley. For Josh, it was his very first league Instant Win as a newcomer to the league.
In Week 2, all 11 teams played at least one overtime game, including Chris Meyers & Adam Williams who won their only overtime game played toward the end of the night. The top three teams posted a combined overtime record of 9-1. The most overtime games played was seven, and this was by both Matt & Derek and Bob G & Tim.
For the random prize drawing, Scott Silverman did the incredible feat of drawing his own name to win his choice of a $15 gift card. To no surprise, Scott also chose a Applebees gift card.
For fun, six players were able to achieve an incredible feat. Setting up six goals in a hexagon shape, each player would toss the disc to someone else 50 feet away while deflecting an incoming throw from their "partner" at the same time. After several attempts, a 18-pack was completed at the same time. This was done by TJ Burns, Adam Williams, Josh Greenauer, Eric Klavoon, Scott Silverman, and Bob Greenauer.
In the overall standings, TJ Burns climbs into the number one spot overall for the first time, holding a five point lead over both Phil Schneider and Josh Greenauer, who are tied for second. Tim Klavoon & Matt Nelson are tied for fourth place, and are part of a group that consists of five players that all have a 19-13 record after two weeks. With just a couple of points separating players, it is shaping up to be a back-and-forth battle with everyone having a chance to move up the ladder at anytime.
