January WASPA Tournament

Twelve players competed in the HSC monthly WASPA tournament with Peter Sexton winning his 3rd straight HSC tournament and 4th WASPA title of the season. For the third tournament in a row, Shaun Burt was the beaten finalist. All the finals have been tight games, this one especially so, as it took three shootout rounds to decide the contest after a 1-1 regulation time scoreline had no further OT goals. Losing Semi-finalists were Stephen McNab (3rd straight semi loss, grrrrr) beaten by Peter and John McKay, beaten by Shaun. Other highlights from the day included the youngest HSC member, Liam Sexton, going undefeated in the group stages and winning group 3, while John McKay, one of the originals from Hamilton Subbuteo of the 1980's, had a strong outing getting to the semi finals. Two new players, both new to the current scene but old veterans of the game also competed. Next tournament in early February, looking to get to 16 players taking part and hopefully we'll remember to get a group photograph taken before all the action gets underway.
