LTHL 2009 Summer Season Week 1

The Report

The LTHL held its first week of the summer 2009 session on Sunday night, June 28 at the Lemont VFW. We were primed for a huge turnout, but some last minute cancellations due to family and work reasons left us with seven players. But one was a total surprise. Tim Walker of the Detroit Table Hockey League came down to tune up for the U.S. Open. And he showed how his game has improved. Tim called early in the day, said he was driving down from Detroit and showed up in time for first face off. This is the second time Tim has attended a league night over the years. On to the results. It was a hard fought night between the top four players and as it happened, the top four had something to play for in the final game of the night. Jim Rzonca took on Eric Krol with first place on the line and Walker took on John Medema with third place on the line. Krol upended Rzonca, so both players were tied. Krol took first place by virtue of a 3-1 head-to-head. record. In the third-place game, Medema edged Walker 3-2. Claire Rzonca, Lukasz Sulka and Joe Rozanski showed off their improved play and battled it out all night for the final three spots. They'll look to knock players off at the U.S. Open on Aug. 1 in Lemont.
