2016 Kelly Cup Results

Congratulations to TEAM MICHIGAN for capturing and holding on to the Kelly Cup once again and keeping it in the U.S.A.
The players from both teams should be congratulated for participating for their country and playing their best, it just so happened that the better team this year (Michigan) came out on top – yes, once again.

Day 1 – After day 1 play Michigan held a 6 points to 4 points advantage.
Day 2 – Michigan achieved 12 points and Ontario achieved 8 points.

According to my math (and Charlie’s spreadsheet) that makes Michigan victorious by an 18 to 12 total for all matches played over the two days.
Top Point getters for Michigan were Chris Boka with a full 4 points, Jack Deming and Brett McBride with 31/2 points, and Brent Davies with 3 points.
Top point getters for Ontario were Dennis Babcock and George Harris with 3 points, and Michael Hunter with 21/2 points.
Congratulations once again to all the combatants (I don’t care if that word is not politically correct)

I know you get my drift!
I’m sure we will all be looking forward to another Kelly Cup in 2017.
