Canberra tournament - March 2018

Four of our finest Western Flickers made the 8 hour drive to Australia’s capital to participate in the Canberra TFC WASPA #2.
It was an awesome fun evening of flicking with our Canberra hosts - Ryan Farrall and Nick Brill. CTFC pioneer Yago unfortunately could not join us due to flight issues from Sydney.
The tournament was played over 1 10 minute period in a round robin format with no draws allowed. 3 points for a win, 0 for a loss. Draws were resolved by a sudden death shootout, 2 points for winning the shootout, 1 point for losing.
Despite fading light and the attack of the killer mozzies, everyone played well and there was little to split the players. This was reflected in the tight scores with several matches requiring a shootout to determine the winner.
In the end, pre-tournament favourite Benny very narrowly won the WASPA over club mate Steve Wright by just a single point !
Most importantly everyone had a great time, new friendships formed and there were jokes and laughter all around. Table Football was the true winner !
Finally, Western Flickers TFC would like to thank CTFC for being wonderful hosts and we wish them the best of luck growing the game in our nations capital.
