Jim Rzonca went undefeated with only one tie to take first place.


Week 2 Report

By Eric Krol

We had a great pre-Christmas turnout Saturday afternoon (Dec. 18) at Jim Rzonca's garage table hockey arena. Fourteen players, including newcomer Ray Szumal of north suburban Skokie came out for some furious Stiga table hockey action. The Parkers, dad Rich and son Kevin, were in the house for the first time this season, as was Jeff Farwell. The big winner in Week 2 was Jim Rzonca, who went an impressive 12-0-1 to take first place and get the big 14 points in the LTHL standings. Rzonca unveiled a new play that caught more than a few guys by surprise, a low LW tip. Only Ron Marsik could come close, tying Jim. Marsik also went undefeated, but had four ties. Rob Chargo went 10-1-2, tying Marsik in points and in their head-to-head matchup. But Chargo won the tiebreaker based on wins. In his final game against Kevin Parker, Garry Butler only needed a win to take fourth place. He got a tie, which meant he had a tiebreaker for fourth place against Farwell. Butler won the game 6-2 to take fourth against good competition, with Farwell taking fifth. Sixth was Dan Lord and seventh Jeff Thill, who took a final exam at Purdue University in the morning then hauled a$$ home to make it in time for opening faceoff. We'll be idle for the holidays and pick up action in three weeks on Jan. 8.
