ANTHONY REIGNS AT COLONIAL

 

 

 

 

This Friday we played out the playoff brackets and the results were not all that surprising. Since joining the club in 2012, Anthony Immordino has been a dominant presence. He took only one loss on the night going 7-1 and made it look easy on his way to his second CQC Championship. He amassed 54 ringers including 6 doubles and 6 cappers. That is a season for some of us. He played most of the year from the top seed taking the lower average player and continued to shoot well, and get the most out of his partners. Congratulations on another fine season.

In Pool A, things started out with Ant shooting his dad and he gave him no quarter, winning 22-13. Most of the games in Pool A were one sided, but Jeff Onyszczuk came out of the BOTR and made his way into the final four with a 2-1 record losing his only match to Ant.

Pool B was dominated by Mike Klidzia as he went 3-0 with his only close game, a win over Jim Goodwin 21-17. Jim went 2-1 and punched his ticket into the final four. In the pool crossover semi-finals, Ant took on Jim Goodwin in the first portion. After a 21-6 loss, Jim changed things up a little and came back with a 21-19 victory to earn a rubber match. That was a great match to watch as they battled back and forth throughout. It came down to the final few throws and Anthony pulled out a 22-20 overtime win and a spot in the final.

In the other crossover semi-final, Jeff had his hands full with Mike K. as he easily won match one 22-11. It was a different story in match two as Jeff went toe to toe with Mike tossing 7 ringers and topping three of Mikeís quoits. Again it came down to the end and Mike outlasted the two-time champion 21-19 and made another final.

Iím not sure if he was fired up by the win over Jimmy or just on fire, but Ant came out strong and overwhelmed Mike with a steady diet of hub capping and ringer throwing. It is disheartening when your opponent consistently blocks the back of the hub leaving you to adjust and make uncomfortable throws. Such was the case for Mike as he played unbelievably all night only to succumb to the firestorm that is Ant when heís on a roll.

Ant is now a two-time champ and it was well earned. The folks that came to watch were entertained all evening as the action was great and the players put on a show. Thanks to everyone that has helped the CQC continue to be the premier quoit club in the area. The picnic/doubles tournament will be held on Saturday October 7. If you have not signed up yet, please do so as we only have four spots left. We will need the money up front so send a check or drop off the cash no later than the end of this month. See you in October.
