A jam packed 9 teams making up a total of 43 players were present for this years Friendship Cup. The blind draw was made and from the offset favoured St. Joseph’s ‘A’ as favourites as 2 of the other favourites College Cosmos and R&J Varyl Begg were drawn against each other in the 2nd round.

All games contested were rather one sided up until the final itself. Christian Tosso (College Cosmos) lost 1-2 against Jadrian Pecino (St Josephs) and Dyson Parody (St Josephs) also saw off Amos Bosano (College Cosmos) in a close 2-1 game. This meant that St. Joseph’s were 2-0 up and the title was in their line of sight (only needing 1 win out of the 3 remaining games).
However Dylan Duo (College Cosmos) had a fantastic game to beat young Carl Thomas (St Josephs) who played his heart out and Henry Zapata’s (College Cosmos) game against Dayle Ramirez (St Josephs) was seen by some as the critical game as they favoured Justin Broton (College Cosmos) to win the last game but Henry Zapata held his nerve and levelled the score 2 – 2.

The last game was played between Justin Broton (College Cosmos) vs Danny Peach (St Joseph’s). Both players had not played an official match the whole evening and it must have felt for both of them that they had been thrown into the frying pan. It went to the last leg but Justin managed to play a good last leg to secure the win for the College Cosmos by 3 –2.

Well done to the winners, College Cosmos, in retaining the title for a 4th consecutive year and to all the players that turned up for making it a very entertaining evening in support of one of our oldest team competitions.
