Die Hard Cup - Final Summary And Standings

The Die Hard Cup came to a triumph close with the X- Court Assassins claiming the championship. Quickly after their victory the champagne was flowing everywhere. Team X- Court Assassins sipped from the cup like Stanley Cup Champions. Although it was a little testy for the The X – Court Assassins down the stretch as they had to hold off a last-gasp rally from The A – Team to claim the championship.

Mike “The X Court Master” Twiner captain of The X – Court Assassins set the tone early for the Assassins by taking down Justin “Raver” Warnock 3 games to zero. Following Twiner’s win Barry “Dive Guy” Garant also of Assassins stepped on the court and employed his Balls to the Wall squash style in defeating Conor “The Law Student” O’ Keefe. After their match O’Keefe felt as if he had a lawsuit on his hands based on Garant’s play. Finally, an early victory for the Assassin over the A Team came from Myles “The Rocker” Talbot. Talbot pulled off a tough four game victory over the University Of Windsor finest history professor Adam Pole. These three clutch victories put the Assassins in control to win the Die Hard Cup

The Final Match of the night was between Konstantin “The Professional” Houbchtev and Tim “Thunderball” Autterson. This match would determine the outcome of the Die Hard Cup. Houbchtev is usually a professional on and off the court, but on Tuesday Night he was not interested in being cordial. He wanted to finish off The A Team once and for all and claim the Die Hard Cup Championship for his team. Houbtchev came out swinging against Autterson running down every shot and forcing Autterson on to the defensive. Autterson just could not keep pace with Houbhtchev’s aggressive style. Unfortunately for Autterson the match ended quickly as he could not find the answer to solve Houbtchev. This loss marked a disappointing end to a tremendous season for the A – Team. The A Team had led the Die Hard Cup all season only to have the championship snatched from their hands on the last night on play.

Thank You to all the player and teams who participated in the inaugural Die Hard Cup.
