The Fight to the Finish

On Saturday morning, we had 6 players at 2-0: Gary Trezza, Mike Allexenberg, Carl Nogueira, Chris Spell, Al Loiselle, and Friday Armor Mini Champ Joe Gochinski. Trezza defeated Allexenberg in an epic and close game of HP2 Lousy Crossroads. Gochinski defeated Loiselle, also in Lousy Crossroads. And Nogueira beat Spell in DB56, Breakout from Stalingrad-I. This left us with 3 undefeateds in the early afternoon, carrying on the NorEaster tradition of needing a spoiler.

Saturday afternoon/evening saw spoiler Spell's Egyptians beat Gochinski's Israelis in CH32 The Kibbutz. This meant the Trezza-Nogueira match would be the championship match, as the winner at 4-0 would be the final undefeated player in the main tourney. Carl's Russians beat Trezza's Germans in MP18 Marsh Madness. Carl Nogueira claimed his first championship of the tournament that he founded.


Friday featured NorEaster's first Armor Mini, sponsored by Joe Gochinski, a two round mini featuring all armor scenarios, with results counting towards the Main Tourney. Joe Gochinski bested the field of four by beating Andy Howard and Dave Krishfield.

A last minute addition was the NorEaster's third ASL Starter Kit mini. Gabriel Gaines won a copy of Rally Point 2 by besting both other ASLSK participants, Tim Fleming and Marshall Stevens.

The Saturday Mini had a full complement of 8 participants. The first round saw Rob Shuster defeat Dave Krishfield, Andy Howard defeat Whit Richardson, Bruce Carson defeat Tim Kelly, and Bruce Bender defeat John Richards. The second round saw Shuster defeat the defending Sat Mini champion Carson and Howard defeat Bender.

Since the Sat Mini got off to a late start due to the early morning snowfall, Rob and Andy agreed to play the final at a later date, either FtF or via VASL. In that match, Andy's Germans held off Rob's Russians in the final CCs in VotG09 Eviction Notice to claim the Saturday Mini Tourney plaque.

The Mo-Fo Mini was a special Valor of the Guards theme this year, to celebrate the long-awaited and highly-anticipated release of that HASL. Only VotG scenarios were played for this Mini. Due to a no-show, there were 7 participants this year, and in the first round Brian Wiersma defeated Jim Mehl, Mark Evans defeated Kedge Johnson, Jim Torkelson defeated Vic Provost in the latest incarnation of their MoFo rivalry, and Randy Knight drew a bye into the second round. In that second round, Knight's Germans held off Wiersma's Russians in VotG17 On the Verge of Extinction, but Randy would be unable to participate in a Sunday round. That left the MoFo Championship to the winner of the Evans-Torkelson match. Mark's Germans beat back Jim's Russians in VotG12 Siberian Shockwave, and Mark claimed the VotG MoFo Championship plaque despite not even seeing the module until shortly before the tournament.
