Six hardy souls contested the latest Penrith WASPA event, which was held in a league format, which perfectly fitted the three boards.
As a result, it was self-refereed, no-one to take photos and we knocked it over by 4pm, despite a late start.
En-route to the venue, Louis’ avowed aim was to score, which he duly did in his first match against Paul, before going down 4-1. Steve and Daniele continued their classic encounters with a goal-for-goal match, Steve clinching it 3-2. Eliot threw down the gauntlet with a 4-0 demolition of Raffaele, before the Lombardi clash ended 1-1. Eliot edged past Paul 2-0, while once again Steve struggled against his son, now nicknamed ‘The Mosquito’ for his annoying defensive flicks which harassed Steve until he knocked in a winner with 5 mins to go!! Eliot and Steve renewed their 40-year rivalry with a 1-0 win to Eliot that put Eliot in the box seat, while Rafaele edged Paul 3-1, and Louis scored from open play in his 4-1 loss to Daniele. In the fourth round, Eliot was forced to battle all the way by Daniele which in effect gave him the title, while there was an “orgy of net busting” as Steve and Paul sorted out a 5-3 result, with classic goals from both players in an all out assault. In the final round, Steve and Raffaele drew 1-1 which gave Steve second place, while Paul leapfrogged Daniele into fourth place with his 2-1 win.
Once again thanks to Christine and Manuel for the venue, boards and tea/coffee and bickies!!!
We’ll be back.
