Report of the 4th Melbourne Table Football Club Championship
Group 2 was a tight affair with Luke Radziminski just squeezing past Chris Garagounis 2-1. With Luke managing to slot 4 passed Adam Deverell, and Chris only managing a draw against Adam it was Luke who topped the group and Adam second to qualify.
In the other semi-final Peter Thomas was pushed all the way by Chris Garagounis, but despite heroic efforts and great goal keeping it was not enough, and Peter progressed to the final.
The final was a repeat of the earlier group game between Peter Thomas and Benji Batten. It was clear Benji really wanted revenge for the earlier on. Benji furiously polished his figures and practiced his ice-man pose prior to the final to try and gain the psychological advantage on Peter. The first 5 minutes of the game were very tense with Benji both defending and attacking well, chasing Peter all round the pitch. If Benji could keep this up we were in for a great game. Unfortunately it was not to be. One of Benji’s over polished players just slid too far causing a defensive error and allowing Peter an easy first goal, which was quickly followed up by another. Benji pulled in back to 2-1 with a delightful on the run combination which was followed by a goal and the shriek of delight. But this only served to motivate Peter further and he came straight down the pitch from kick-off and scored. By the time half time came it was 6-1 to Peter and look all over.
