|Friday, March 30... what a night! Three tables of food aside, and a case of beer later... we had a blast!
The night starts with 14 yr old Carter Campbell strolling in wearing a fedora! Another young hat wearing Kraehling wanna-be... and on the fedora there is a white label which has type on it: "PTHL Champion 2012"
BOLD BOLD BOLD... these young whipper-snappers... lol
friggin' hilarious though!
In Round 1, #6-Alex def. #11-Kyle.S by scores of 6-3, 7-0, 8-1 (best 3 of 5 to advance)
the next series was a wild one... Jeff was the story of the night, for so many reasons! He could barely walk due to a torn achilles injury, and his leg was swollen up like a red balloon.
He led 3-0 in game 1, and lost 4-3 in OT, in a see-saw affair with league rookie Craig
#7-Jeff def. #10-Craig by scores of 3-4 OT, 3-2 OT, 1-3, 3-0, 4-1
#9-Chris def. #8-Matt def. by scores of 5-2, 2-0, 5-4
In Round 2, #10-Craig def. #13-Gary by scores of 3-0, 0-1 OT, 2-3, 3-0
#11-Kyle.S def. #12-Will by scores of 2-1, 1-4, 3-2, 2-0

#2-Carter def. #7-Jeff by scores of 5-4 OT, 3-4, 3-2, 5-3 (jeff was awesome in the series! Gave young Carter a big scare...)
#3-Justin def. #6-Alex by scores of 7-1, 9-1, 5-3
#4-Kyle.P def. #5-Mitch by scores of 10-3, 7-2, 5-2 (Mitch was flabbergasted!!!)

***THIS WAS THE SERIES OF THE NIGHT!!! These two young table hockey superstars did not disappoint! They dissected each other's moves, modified play styles, went back and forth in every game, and played with great intensity and competition! We were sorry there had to be a loser in this one! Came down to one goal in the deciding game, as many great series do!
In Round 6, Mitch def. Alex 8-2, 0-7, 6-4 (best of 3, playing for positions 5 and 6 overall)
Jeff def. Chris 7-3, 5-4 (best of 3, playing for positions 7 and 8 overall)
Onto the final 4... In the bronze medal final, we have never seen such complete domination between two high calibre players! While Carter did amazing things, Kyle had an answer for every goal Carter provided.
Kyle Pilatzke def. Carter Campbell by scores of 8-7 OT, 6-2, 6-5 OT (best 3 of 5 for bronze)
In the finals, Justin had his heart set to finally get his student vs teacher showdown! (Justin was a student in Mark's first class as a teacher, and learned just as much table hockey as math that year). He got it all right...
Mark Sokolski def. Justin Hawthorne by scores of 0-3, 6-4, 5-1, 3-1, 5-2 (Mark wins 4-1 to claim gold)
It was a terrific season! We had record attendance, great food, solid friendships... we were asked by the local Sportsman Show to put on the first Eastern Ontario Table Hockey Championships! We were in the newspapers, and we have a radio ad about our tourney which runs daily. We saw many of our league players set personal bests in Ontario tournament play. 2012 was awesome!
Most Petawawa Table Hockey league members will be there to challenge all comers at the April 28 Eastern Ontario Table Hockey Championship! COME DO IT... we will show you a great time, Ottawa valley style! The hospitality and good cheer in this neck of the woods is amazing, probably why we have such a great league! www.ontariotablehockey.com for details.. Hope to see the gatineau and Ottawa crew out for this one!
