Geoffrey Marain wins 35th WASPA title in Templeuve

This thursday the Templeuve United club hosted their monthly WASPA tournament with a field of 8 players (from 2 nations and 5 different clubs). Unfortunately there were 4 last minute dropouts but it was perfect to use Thossa Büsing's "5-for-8" tournament system. The draw was funny as the 4 oldest players were dropped in the same group. After the group stage, the semi-finals were exciting but both Geoffrey Marain and Vincent Coppenolle managed to reach the final. The decisive game was full of passion, Coppenolle leading 4-1 with 8 minutes to go but Marain equalized in the last 6 secondes of the games. No goal was scored in the sudden death and Marain won the tournament on shots. Eddy Beernaert, who was in a very good day, ended third after beating Renald Deloose on shots in the final for places 3 and 4. Matthias Averlant won the consolation tournament.

1. Geoffrey Marain, SC Eugies
