About M.E. myself and I

I have been an M.E. sufferer for a long time now, but sports replay gaming is an easy hobby for me to enjoy. Originally from Canvey Island, Essex, I was introduced to replay gaming a few years ago, leading to my first purchase: Cricket World. Most sports I share will be common, but there are some more obscure replays thrown in. Thank you for visiting and I hope you enjoy your stay. Feel free to say hello! - Chris

Controlled Chaos - Spring Fling Derby, Heat 3

Spring Fling Derby - Buffalo, NY
Heat 3
Bob Alexander, Lynne Higgins, Leo May, Randy Tondreau, Danny Krol, Jess Yates, Dick Garrett, Steven Redden, Will Murphy, Rob Remaley, Will Thompson, Darryl Lozier

Half of the top ten in the current standings were together in this final heat and it was seventh placed Leo May who was the first of this group to fall as he became stuck on the scenery after a sustained assault on Rob Remaley. Prior to this exit however were the eliminations of Bob Alexander who was hit six times, twice by Darryl Lozier, and Randy Tondreau who was a brutal victim of Danny Krol's wrath.

Over eight minutes had passed when May was counted out and what followed was a flurry of eliminations starting with four time finalist Remaley who stalled several times but continued to re-fire only to finish in ninth place. Dick Garrett was the unlucky driver who would miss out on the consolation heat as Jess Yates was unforgiving in his treatment of a man stuck against the barrier. Seconds later both Will Murphy and Steven Redden were done, the former stalling out after heavy attention from Lozier; Redden re-firing his engine only to become a sandwich between Lynne Higgins and Lozier.

Danny Krol had been a thorn in a few sides hitting Tondreau four times and Yates three, the latter pipping Krol to fourth spot thanks to an illegal hit disqualified one driver and crippled the other. The final three would not last much longer, championship leader Will Thompson finishing in third after spending much of the heat chasing his fellow finalists.

Runner-up was Darryl Lozier who was happy to go back and forth with Murphy before coming out second best in a battle with Lynne Higgins. Higgins, who wins her first heat of the year, focused on Redden in the early going before blindside hits from Krol and May almost upset her day. She redoubled her efforts and helped finish off Redden before wiping out Thompson and then Lozier.
