Fabrizio Coco wins Northern Falcons tournament

Fabrizio Coco and Tony Credentino pulled off another "Italian Job" when they took the top two honours at the latest WASPA at the Willoughby home base.

With a solid field of 11 players, Fabrizio first had to overcome the hurdle of the Northern Falcons' young guns in Oli Ollnow and Torben Pfister, whom he beat 1-0 and 2-0 respectively.
Group 2 was there for the taking by Eliot, who started with a comfortable 3-0 win over John Palamara. Jonty Brener moved into qualifying contention when he beat Geoff Sirmai 1-0, then got the all important point in a 0-0 draw with John. Geoff's hopes were dashed when he lost 3-0 to Eliot.

In Group 3, Tony showed his continued rise in the Sydney scene with a gutsy 2-1 win over Hermann Kruse, while Steve Dettre just edged Neil Brener 1-0.

Hermann then thumped Neil, while Steve and Tony drew 0-0, putting the pressure back on Hermann who needed to beat Steve to qualify. But after falling a goal behind, he worked his hardest, but could only manage a late equaliser and went out of the tournament.

In the Barrage round, Tony completed the clean sweep of the Kruse-Ollnow pairing, winning 1-0, while Steve edged out Jonty 3-2.

The semi finals were incredibly tight, with Fabrizio beating Steve 1-0, and then Tony beating Eliot 2-1 on shots.

The final was a tremendous tussle, with Tony putting up a great fight to force shots, where Fab won out 2-1.

Another great night for the Falcons, and we must thank players from Sydney and the Hipfingerz for continuing to support us.

Next up is the AGFA Cup on May 19 -- a day not to be missed, as we farewell Hermann, Oli and Hermine from our club.
