Pretoria Year End Event

Saturday 16 December 2017, Pretoria, South Africa:
The final gathering for 2017 attracted a field of 10 entries - players were placed in two sections (A & B) in order to complete the scheduled events on the 2017 PFC Calendar.

A Section - League 3 Cup
This event was always going to be the showpiece on the day - with players wanting to stamp their authority upon proceedings early on. It never disappointed, as we witnessed a total of 26 goals scored over the 10 scheduled fixtures, including a massive 5-0 win for Bevin Reed over Julian van der Merwe! In the end, Jayden van der Merwe posted 3 wins and 1 draw to capture his 12th WASPA title to date. This triumph for Jayden also secured him the honours of 2017 PFC League Champion - overall Jayden had accumulated 1 more point than Chessray Jooste in what was by far the closest run League Championship to date for the club.

B Section - Copa del Clausura
On paper, this event promised to be a very tight affair. The unpredictability of the event was further heightened when Imtiaz Ahmed stunned Adam Murray by 2-1 in Match 1 ! Gary Downs then suffered a second round loss, opening the way for newcomer Chris Abrahamse to lead the standings for all of 3 rounds of play! Round 4 then changed the shape of things completely - Imtiaz beat Chris by 1-0 to "demote" Chris to 3rd place overall ! Adam secured the title by way of a 1-0 win. Gary secured 2nd place overall by way of a 1-1 draw over Conway Julie.
A very disappointing day for Conway after his impressive 3rd place finish during last month's Scudo Campioni event !

A big thank you to all Pretoria players for your support during 2017 !!!
Wishing all fellow Subbuteo players across the WASPA circuit a joyous & peaceful Festive period.
