Jayden van der Merwe wins his first title for 2014

Saturday 17th May 2014, Pretoria, South Africa : Jayden proved simply too strong for the field on the day, posting figures of P6-W5-D1-L0 and conceding only 1 goal (to eventual runner-up, Julian van der Merwe) en route to becoming the 2014 PFC Challenge Cup champion! Chessray Jooste, PFC’s most in form player for 2014 to date, had to settle for a disappointing 4th place. During first round action, Jayden dispatched of Chessray by 2-0 and Jayden went on to repeat that same scoreline during 2nd round matches – thereby breaking Chessray’s dominance in this particular match-up over the past 3 events of 2014. But it was in the 10th match-up of the day when Jayden beat Julian by 1-0 thanks to a long range shot on the stroke of full time, which put Julian’s hope of success on halt, and handed Jayden his first title for 2014! The 12th (and final) match-up of the day , Kegan (1) v (0) Julian , saw Julian concede again on full time, ensuring 3rd place to the 2013 Challenge Cup winner, Kegan van der Merwe.

Final Standings:
1. Jayden van der Merwe – 11p
2. Julian van der Merwe – 5p
3. Kegan van der Merwe – 4p
4. Chessray Jooste – 4p
