Rik Bland wins again in Brisbane

Numbers were down for this month’s WASPA tournament, due to the busy time of year, and other commitments, therefore only the bare minimum of 3 players were available to contest the trophy.
Rik Bland, Giuseppe Tardiota and Chris Scholes played a league format, playing home and away fixtures.

Chris Scholes playing only his second WASPA tournament played well, narrowly losing by a 2-1 scoreline in his first 2 matches, his second match against Giuseppe, he lost 4-2, and final game against Rik, he lost 4-1, but Chris showed that with a bit more practice, he could cause a few upsets, especially if he can cut out the crazy spare GK play. Chris showed he knows how to find the net with some great worked goals.

Ever present, club founders Giuseppe and Rik battled it out again, the first of the 2 matches went Rik’s way, with a sound 4-1 win. The second match Giuseppe required a 4 goal margin to take the trophy, he fought hard, and took the game 2-0 to avenge the earlier defeat, however goal difference was enough to see Rik’s new Cameroon team take the trophy for the second time in succession.

Chris Scholes 1-2 Giuseppe Tardiota
Chris Scholes 1-2 Rik Bland
Rik Bland 4-1 Giuseppe Tardiota
Giuseppe Tardiota 4-2 Chris Scholes
Rik Bland 4-1 Chris Scholes
Giuseppe Tardiota 2-0 Rik Bland

The next BSC tournament will be held at 9.00 am on Saturday, January 30, 2016. Woody Point Clubhouse.
