those are the facts and figures – where's your
tournament had been characterized by goals aplenty
(average of over 4.5 per game) but we had the
best two defences on show here so maybe this would
be a little different. Having said that, we had
the tournament top scorers in Melee FC so if anyone
could beat that Skidmarks defence it could well
it happened goals were conspicuous by their absence.
We had two top quality goalkeepers on show in
the form of Paul Mulvey (Skidmarks) and Fabio
Zucchelli (Melee FC) and with the able assistance
of their defenders they thwarted everything that
was thrown at them. Skidmarks probably had the
better of the chances of breaking the deadlock
but we reached the full-time whistle with the
teams locked together at 0-0. The Cup Final would
be decided by a penalty shoot-out.
