Chopin Vodka Wins Chopin Challenge0

Posted on March 17th, 2016 in News, Uncategorized

The Chopin Challenge, played on Sunday March 13 in front of another great crowd, featured  12 goal teams Chopin Vodka (Ron Mathison, Marcello Rodriguez-Abbiati 5, Mariano Fassetta 5, Chad Bowmen 2) and Tequila Clase Azul (Jenny Lutterell-Benardoni, Francisco Benardoni 2, Ruben Coscia 5, Juan Curbelo 5).

The early going – after the initial bowl in by Dana Chandler, the COO and GM of Chopin Imports – saw Clase Azul leading by one at 3 – 2 after the first chukker and they continued to hold that advantage with no scoring by either team in the second.

The third period was all Chopin as they absolutely poured it on and scored five unanswered goals to lead by four (7 – 3) going to the Chopin Divot Stomp.

Although Clase Azul outscored Chopin 6 – 5 in the second half, it wasn’t enough and Chopin, riding the effect of that strong third chukker, went on to win by a final count of 12 – 9.

After starting things off, Dana Chandler was back – this time on the presentation platform – to present the awards to both the runners up and the champions.
