Marsik 7 to 0 in game 7 to cap the comeback down from 3 games to 1 to winning the series. He really turned up the D.

It'll be Ron Marsik vs. Jeff Thill in the finals.

And Jim Rzonca vs. Dan Lord for third place in a short series.


I'm sure Jim will post the results when he gets home...I'm no longer there.

RON MARSIK is the Coleco Straight Shootout Champion!

Ron was 6th seed after the round robin but slowly got the feel of the Big Coleco games, banana blades while making adjustments as the day went on. Ron was down 3 games to 1 vs Dan Lord in the Semifinals but then shut down Lord winning 3 straight to capture the series 4 games to 3 advancing to the finals.

Next up for Ron was Shark Tank / MHL Champion Jeff Thill in the finals.
The series was 4 very tight checking games ==>

Marsik 2
J Thill 1

Marsik 4 OT
J Thill 3

Marsik 4
J Thill 2

Marsik 2
J Thill 1

Great defence displayed by both players on these wide body big net Colecos!

In the end, Ron Marsiks sold defence was able to stop Thill's very potent offence along with a timely Overtime goal that got it done for Ron tonight.

3rd Place Series

Rzonca 6
Lord 3

Rzonca 7
Lord 3

Thanks to all the players and the Lemont VFW post for supporting this event. Gear up for the Coleco Shark Tank Shootout in 6 weeks for more Coleco Action!
