Yesterday (February 5th , 2013) was the final day of the tournament as both the Gold and Silver tournaments were completed. Yes, we finally have a new SFCCL Grand Champion! However......I will not make the official announcement until tomorrow at the earliest as I want to get video of the final match and then post all together.
As for the Silver tournament, congrats to BENSON29's RYU for winning the second-tier tournament. His Ryu finished the season with am impressive (16-3) record and came from the #13 seed in Division A to win the tournament. In a close match with a lot of swings in momentum, he defeated #10 Mijoeight's Abel in the Silver Finals 3 wins to 1. Mijoeight reached the Silver Finals on the Division B side back on December 11th. With Skrface's delay in playing, the Division A side was slow to get going. However, last night, Benson's Ryu defeated Skrface's Guile in the Semi Finals and then immediately played Mijoeight, who by chance was also online. So, the Silver tournament ended with the final two matches played last night with Benson's Ryu defeating two formidable opponents. See video of the match below.
In case you forgot, Benson29 from Canada also won the Bronze tournament last week. Congrats to BENSON29 for a successful season. Thanx to all the members in the Silver bracket for their commitment to the league all season long.
