Now that we’ve reached the Tournament Proper I’m going to do my best to write round by round reviews.
With many more regulars thrown into the mix we expected the First Round Proper to be very exciting and eventful, and it sure didn’t disappoint!
To view all the scores and results of the First Round Proper which took place in gw 11, click here.
The two closest matches of the round were actually draws with Audiobully‘s Colchester United tying Cheeseoid‘s Oxford United 67-67 and AK‘s Hartlepool United tying FC Borecelona‘s Accrington Stanley 61-61. Cheeseoid and AK were both very unlucky to be eliminated based on rank.
Isacki‘s Cambridge United and Bootsy‘s Bitton (9) jointly hold the highest score of the round with 84pts. Isacki also earned himself special recognition as he knocked out Bury which is led by the one and only Granville. Meanwhile, Bootsy deserves plaudits because he, along with footyjuana, danishdynamite, Zan keroski, liamhennessy, and joaocfrodrigues began the competition in the Preliminary Round and have progressed through all 6 rounds to date to make it to the Second Round Proper.
The round’s lowest score goes to Ginkapo‘s Barnet who scored a meager total of 28.
