Justin Marciniak captured his second Silver title of the year

PARKVILLE, MO -- Justin Marciniak survived a long day to snatch the Kansas City Open Silver Division title from Gabe Airrington with a 12-6 win in the title game held at Kactus Creek Croquet Club in Parkville, Missouri this afternoon.


Bronze finalists Annika Jackson and Cade MillicanThe 10-player double-elimination bracket was a first for any MCA Nine-Wicket Series division. As expected it stretched out from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Marciniak played six games on the day and had a 5-1 record. Airrington cruised through the winner's side of the bracket and his only loss came in the final. He was 3-1 on the day.
