ASA Open April 17, 2010

Participants in the ASA Open

It may have been the smallest ASA Open in southern California in four years but it was described as a "Cracking tournament" by the organizer Simon Hutchinson.

Wayne Smith won his 16th consecutive Open tournament, beating Simon in the final. And David Jensen claimed third place winning a shoot out in "sudden death" against Dominic Hutchinson.

The group stage saw several games that almost ended in upsets. Dominic gave his father, Simon, a shock by taking a very early lead. Wayne had a tough time breaking through David's defense. Simon scored an early goal on Wayne, and then hung onto this slender lead until midway through the second half.
