Christmas Eve Eve Week 2 slate

Blue Glove Open: Winter 2022-23, Week 2

The night before the night before Christmas, three primetime matches stirred the Bethesda Country Club crowd in the Blue Glove Open. David Gong jumped out to a huge lead and took down one of the BGO's top players, Yael Lan, 8-1, to claim Player of the Week honors.

Gong extends his early lead in Group B with a 2-0 record, looking upward even into Group A for more opponents like Lan. He'll have the week off this week, which gives rivals like Alex Cana and Carter Mills a chance to catch up.

Lan played twice and took out her frustration on Luke Mearns, dealing the same scoreline to him in a comprehensive Lan victory. She boosted her record to 1-2 and stopped the skid of three losses after an almost unbeaten fall season. She trails William Green and Tomas Mulita in Group A, and has two matches this week, with Green off and Mulita with three.

The first match of the night was the best one. Krishna Ramaswamy defeated Finn Koski in a tighter set, 7-3. The win vaults her to third place in Group C, while Finn is now fourth in Group D, looking for his first win after challenging for the fall season's final.
