The event attracted a field of 7 entries :
Each participant played 4 matches on the day - the format based on a Swiss System draw.
A cautious first round of matches saw three 0-0 drawn matches, and we had to wait for the latter rounds to see some goal action !
Jayden vd Merwe stormed to the top of the leaderboard with first a 2-0 win over Marc-Leigh Alexander in Round 3 action & then a hard fought 1-0 win over Julian vd Merwe in the penultimate
match of the tournament ! As fate would have it, the very last match-up Kegan vd Merwe (0) vs (1) Chessray Jooste turned out to be a real "decider" - in which Kegan needed a clear 2-0 win to
be crowned Champion & Chessray needed a 2-0 win to force a title deciding play-off against Jayden !! However, Chessray could only manage a single goal scored on 13min to claim 2nd place &
thereby handing the title to Jayden !! Elsewhere, a very impressive 3rd place for PFC (and Subbuteo) newcomer Adrian Otto !!
A very big thank you to all the PFC members who participated in our 1st ever WASPA event - a great success & a memorable day indeed !!
