2010 Holiday Silver
Zach Walker and Maryland Subbuteo Club (MSC) where the big winners at the traditional Holiday Silver tournament in Ellicott City, Maryland on December 4th and 5th. Zach Walker took the Open title without having to move into top gear, defeating Paul Eyes 4-1 in the final. Over 40 players competed during the weekend. The National Team Championship on Sunday saw a "5 peat" for MSC. Maryland took the long road to victory after finishing second behind WTSL/Towson in the group stage. The second place group finish meant that MSC had to defeat a strong Connecticut club (SCC) in the semi finals, then exact revenge on WTSL/Towson in the final. Other key results:
Veterans Final: Paul Eyes 3 Jim Taylor 2
U19 Final: Matt Steinmuller 1 Byung Kim 1 (2-1 golden goal in OT)
U15 Final: Corey Wiggs 3 Kevin Chung 1
MSC would like to thank all the travelers and players for a great weekend.
