Bevin Reed wins his second WASPA title

Saturday 15 August 2015, Pretoria, South Africa: 

We had 6 entries for the 2015 PFC Super Cup event with 15 scheduled matches, ensuring each participant played 5 matches on the day. Round 1 produced three 0-0 scorelines and we had to wait for the latter rounds to get some goal action. Bevin Reed went top of the standings when he beat Rowin Wilson by 2-0 in Match 7, and Bevin maintained the top spot until Round 4.
Match 9, Jayden vd Merwe (2) v (1) Julian vd Merwe produced the "match of the day" - with Julian taking the lead after 5min of play with a well executed chip shot from the edge of the shooting area ; Jayden stormed backed and was level after 9min of play and then took the lead in the 11th minute - both goals scored from longe range!
In Round 4 action, Match 12 ended Rowin (0) - (2) Jayden, and that result ensured that Jayden went above pacesetter Bevin by virtue of having scored more goals. That result also meant that Match 15 (Jayden v Bevin) would be a potential title decider ! But prior to that, in Match 14, Kegan vd Merwe needed a draw to secure 3rd place on the day - that match ended 0-0 handing Kegan a deserved 3rd place finish. The two title challengers could not be separated in Match 15 - Jayden (0) v (0) Bevin, a very tactical match with limited chances which then forced the event into a Final Play-off match to decide the event winner. That match started much like Match 15 - very tactical. However, in the last 5 minutes of the match Jayden launched attack after attack with most of the play happening in Bevin's goal area - but Bevin's resolve held firm, a testament to how well his defensive play was all day as Bevin ended the day
without conceding at all!
As was the case during last month's GOLD CUP event, these same two players (Jayden & Bevin) had to decide the event by way of penalty shots - and it was Bevin who overturned the tables this time around, winning 3-2 on shots. Well done to Bevin Reed and congratulations on his second WASPA title in 4 months!
