LTHL Starts 2012 Regular Season

The Lemont Table Hockey League kicked off its 2012 season at 6 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 17 at Vito and Nick's Pizza/Bowling Lanes. There were seven players in attendance, including newcomer John Barnes, who has been playing two months with his cousin, Eric Davis. Jim Sluis of the Tinley Tin Men Munro League came with defending LTHL champ John Medema.



Three round robins were played. In the end, Jim Rzonca came out on top. He was on quite a roll to start and it was enough to take first place. The first regular-season date saw some scores settled from the last LTHL playoffs. Rzonca swept Eric Krol, avenging a Game 7 semi-final loss from November. Krol turned around and swept John Medema, avenging a Game 7 finals loss. The next league date will be Jan. 7 or Jan. 8, depending on player and venue availability.
