LTHL Summer Season Week 2



Jeff Thill dominated in Week 2, only losing two.

The Report

The Lemont Table Hockey League was back on the Stiga boards after a break for the Coleco Shark Tank. Week 2, held June 14 at the VFW Hall, saw Jeff Thill dominate. He lost only two games (to Jim Rzonca and Eric Krol on a last-second goal) and tied one. But the real story was the quick emergence of Eric Davis, who has improved more quickly than any player in LTHL history. Davis had been taking his lumps in his first year of competitive table hockey. He went to the Detroit tournament in late March and finished near the bottom of the B pool, as I recall. It was there that he saw TH legend Ken Dubois play using a stool/seat. Davis bought one and since then, it's like he flipped a switch. He was about .500 at the first league night of the summer season and he had his coming out party Saturday night, scoring wins over Rzonca and Krol and finishing fifth out of 11. A great showing for the rookie, especially considering he had a torn tendon in his foot and was wearing a cast. The three Ingos returned, and while I don't recall them collecting any bounties, they also continue to improve. We'll likely be back at it on Saturday, July 12 in advance of the Stiga U.S. Open.
