|Plates players with TFAS President, Kok Wee, in the center|
14 players were knocked out after the group games of the TFAS CUP 2017. However, they could still battle it out for the Consolation Plate prize in this Plates WASPA Event.
The top 2 out of the 14 players who had the most points from the group games earlier qualified straight into the Plates quarterfinals. The remaining 12 players would fight for the 6 remaining quarterfinal spots in the Plates barrage round.
After a tense quarterfinal and semi-final which followed soon after, Nic Tan and a young Isaac Lim managed to fight their way to the Plates Final.
People would have expected a much more experienced Nic to win over his much younger opponent with his strategic and precise play. However, Isaac exceeded all expectations and managed to win the final 1-0. Well done!

What is our sport all about? Is it trophies, big rooms, lots of players? Or is it a few friends getting together, having some matches, a lot of laughs, enjoying the fundamentals of the game, a few beers and some great sausages!!! There's a place for the former at the elite level, but for the majority of times, the latter leaves a better feeling. A great little tournament was staged for Northern Falcons players courtesy of Hermann Kruse, who dubbed it the first Bratwurst Cup! A night of sausages, beer and table football. What more could you ask for on a rainy Friday night? Steve and Jonty, and Hermann and Simon opened the night, with Steve slightly rattled by the thunderbolt shooting of Jonty. Despite leading twice, Jonty kept him on his toes before Steve won 3-2. Hermann was thwarted by some acrobatic saves by Simon, but edged the match 1-0. Neil hadn't flicked 'competitively' for a while, and despite gradually getting his flicking back, went down 3-0 to Steve, while Hermann started to strengthen his grip on the title with a 3-0 win over Jonty, then Neil got his mojo back with a 1-0 win over Simon. Steve and Hermann battled to a 0-0 draw, and Neil beat Jonty 1-0. When Steve was held 1-1 by Simon, after a cracking chip from Simon from close range, it was all for Hermann to claim the cup, which he did when he beat Neil 3-0.
A great night, and what better souvenir from the evening than a couple of Bratwurst each!!!

Onto the Final---A much anticipated and almost expected final began with both players again going on the attack early on but after great interplay Mcnulty opened up the Connolly defence on the right flank and struck an unstoppable strike that Connolly could not stop, yet again we all laughed as the goal was yet again airbourne due to the goalkeepers over excited effort to keep keep it out, Chris Thorn then retaped the goal down and play resumed, Connolly pushed on but with seconds remaining in the 1st half Mcnulty nailed in a super finish to go 2 up at the break. In the second half as expected Connolly came on strong and after creating a few half chances and a few shots that Mcnulty's keeper did well to deflect Connolly finally got a reward after a fine finish that lobbed helplessly over the hapless keeper. The game opened up again as Mcnulty refused to shut up shop and continued to look for a 3rd, it never came but sadly for Connolly neither did an equalizer that would of sent the game into the drama of extra time and the game ended 2-1 and Mcnulty took the title and continued his 100% home record against visiting players from Singapore, Belgium and now Melbourne. Thanks Adrian until next time pal and we promise to have the goals drilled into place for your next visit hahahah.
