Team Europe captain Marcus Chamat holds aloft the Mosconi Cup
Team Europe continued their domination of the Mosconi Cup over Team USA with a thumping 11-4 victory at the Mandalay Bay resort in Las Vegas.
Joshua ‘The Killer’ Filler continued his remarkable debut week by defeating Dennis ‘The Hatchetman’ Hatch in the first singles match on Thursday night to confirm an eighth consecutive triumph in the team competition.
The 20-year-old from Germany showed superb composure to win 5-3 before celebrating in style with his team-mates.
Filler, who didn’t lose a game all week, said: “It couldn’t get any better. For my debut, it’s been amazing. I’m lucky that I have these guys. Without these guys, I could not have done it.”
European skipper Marcus Chamat added: “I’m overwhelmed. The way we played and stood beside each other. Hard work pays off – these guys put the work in.”
USA will be desperate to end their losing streak at the 25th Mosconi Cup, which will be played at Alexandra Palace next year.
