LTHL Summer Season Week 4

We were back at it at Vito and Nick's on Sunday, Oct. 4 after a successful Chicago Blackhawks Fan Training Fest exhibition two weeks earlier. Seven players turned out for a fun night of Stiga table hockey. The crowd included Bob Ingo, a Coleco standout who came out for some fun at the United Center.

Results-wise, young Claire Rzonca, Jim's daughter, was the big story. She played the first two round robins (it was a school night, after all) and tied or beat all but one of the adult players. Good job, Claire! Taking top honors was Eric Krol, who had some muscle memory left from the 43 games he had played in Edmonton 8 days earlier when he took the B pool to finish 9th out of 27 players. Back in the LTHL, Eric lost only one game all night (to John Medema) and ended up with seven ties (three against Jim and three against Jeff Farwell). Lot of comebacks by Eric tonight, observed Jim Rzonca. Taking second was Jim Rzonca, who defeated Farwell in the final game with second place on the line. Farwell has been playing more Stiga lately (he was B Pool champion in a tough group at the US Open) and it showed with improved play. In fourth was Medema, who is gearing up for his Munro league playoffs on Oct. 17. Thanks to everyone who came out and we'll be back at it later this month, date TBA.
