Chris Kaberry wins in North Shields


Another tight and tense mini tournament was held in North Shields last night, hosted by current WASPA Cup holder Nigel Lamond.

Three very closely fought games were played out with Chris and Dave both edging the host narrowly by 1 - 0 in the first two. The final and deciding game was dominated in the main by Chris who missed some really good chances to take the lead and extend it. Dave made some great saves and was always dangerous on the break. Chris had a great chance with three minutes to go but hit the bar.  A tense shootout followed with Dave taking the lead and Chris scoring twice to move ahead 2-1. Dave tipped off the keeper and bar with his final shot.  These mini tournaments in Shields are very competitive and excellent practice for both playing and refereeing. More groups and clubs should try it.  Thanks to Nigel for hosting and for the tea, coffee and biscuits.
