CHESSRAY JOOSTE WINS THE 2016 PFC LEAGUE 3 CUP

Author: Julian, 2016/11/06

3 in a row for Chessray !!!

Saturday 5 November 2016, Pretoria, South Africa : 
The 2016 edition of the PFC League 3 Cup attracted a small field of 6 entries, with a return of Subbuteo action in Pretoria after a 2 month break due to various postponements of this event. Two time winner (2014 & 2015) of this event, Jayden vd Merwe got the event off with a bang - scoring after only 59sec of play against Julian vd Merwe in Match 1. Jayden then added a second goal after 11min to make the final score 2-0, with Jayden making the early statement of intent to hold onto his League 3 title ? Another big result in Round 1 was when Chessray Jooste dispatched of Bevin Reed by 1-0, with the 2 month break evident as Bevin's shooting was not up to his usual standard ! 

In Round 2 action, Bevin hit the target as he beat Kegan vd Merwe by 1-0 in an early contender for match of the day - an action packed match where Kegan's shooting was left wanting this time, but Kegan managed a scare for Bevin as he (Kegan) hit the post on full time !! Conway Julie then held the high flying Jayden vd Merwe to a 0-0 draw, paving the way for Chessray to go top as he (Chessray) beat Julian by 2-1.
Round 3 saw Conway score his first ever goal as he managed to force a 1-1 draw by equalising after 10min of play against the much fancied Chessray Jooste ! Jayden was once again left frustrated by elder brother Kegan in a 0-0 draw, and Jayden sensed his chances slipping of holding onto his title. Elsewhere Julian recorded an impressive 1-0 victory over Bevin to lift himself off the foot of the standings !
Round 4 saw two heavyweights in Jayden & Bevin clash for the runner-up spot, as the match ended 1-1 with the draw being enough for Jayden to secure 2nd spot and Bevin had to settle for a dissappointing 4th palce overall !! Elsewhere Conway held Julian to a 0-0 draw. The match of the day then unfolded as Chessray beat Kegan by 2-1, with Chessray leading by 2-0 and with only 5min left to play Kegan suddenly sprung into action, taking the game to Chessray - his efforts rewarded by a goal with still 3min left on the clock, but Chessray held out & the win ensured that Chessray captured his 7th WASPA title to date ! This triumph for Chessray also meant that Chessray clinched the 2016 PFC League Championship overall by pipping the front runner, Bevin Reed, by 1 point overall - this accomplishment for Chessray will be honoured in December during PFC's end of season awards.
Finally, a word on the effort from Conway Julie on the day - Conway managed an unbeaten run to capture 3rd place overall, an impressive result as Conway battled against the 5 most seasoned players within the PFC ranks ! For his exploits, Conway was rewarded with the new PFC club shirt as well !
As always - thanks to all for attending and making the day a success once again.
