New champions crowned in South Africa

Friday the 26th of October saw the third Randburg Table Football Challenge take place with a good field of 17 participants.

The entrants were divided into two groups: under 14 and seniors. In the Under 14 section, defending champion, Fraser Kilian, and previous champion, Tristan Berry was vying to secure their second title. However, they faced extremely tough competition from other youngsters who were keen to get their hands on the trophy. Group A saw Marcello Figuerro and Tristan Berry qualify for the semi-finals along with Alex Rodrigues and Denver Lawson. The first semi-final saw Alex defeat Tristan on penalties after a very entertaining one all draw. Marcello progressed to his first final by edging out Denver by the odd goal in a very tense semi-final.

The final proved to be a great game with Marcello taking an early lead only to see Alex equalize with only a few minutes left on the clock. In the penalty shoot-out Marcello held his nerve to win his first title after an exciting shoot-out. Marcello is the third winner of the Junior Randburg Challenge and proves that the quality of table football amongst the juniors is improving at a rapid pace. Both finalists received Superfooty teams courtesy of Randburg’s Bryan Shenkyl. Well done to all the boys who took part.

In the senior section, 8 players participated including the only lady – Claire Figuerro. Clifford Graaff and Bryan Shenkyl qualified from Group A along with Fernando Rodrigues and Kenny Mather. Clifford accounted for Bryan in the semi-final and was joined by Fernando who beat Bryan Shenkyl by the odd goal in a very entertaining game.

The final proved to be a very tight affair between two veteran adversaries. Fernando played a great game and absorbed all the pressure from Clifford and could’ve scored a late winner only to be denied by a heavy touch. The penalty shoot-out proved to be entertaining with Fernando taking charge from the first kick to secure his first Randburg Title – and deservedly so!!!!

Once again the third Randburg Challenge proved to be great advert for table football. Many new players were introduced to the game and Randburg have decided to start their own table football club and an exciting 2013 is planned for the new table football club.
