Scooter City FC rides away with gameweek

An absolute nail biter for champions-elect Liverpool against Norwich was one of the weekend’s most memorable matches, launching the Reds’ Raheem Sterling into the stratosphere for his match-winning brace and assist.

The 19-year-old English winger notched up 18 points to assume the title of Most Valuable Player of gameweek 35 in the Cellcard Fantasy League, a rich reward for all managers that picked him.

Another young midfield maestro, Arsenal’s Aaron Ramsey, showed his form with a goal and a pair of assists at Hull for 16 points.

Meanwhile, Everton’s perennially prolific defender Leighton Baines scored at one end and kept a clean sheet at the other in their crucial win over Manchester United to amass 15 points.

The weekly battle heralded three centurion efforts (100 points or more) although Colin Brown’s 107 points with his team Scooter City FC was simply stunning.

Colin’s squad included no less than five Dream teamers, namely Sterling, Baines, Man City’s Sergio Aguero (12 points), Tottenham’s Christian Eriksen (11) and Everton’s Seamus Coleman (11), with Aguero and Eriksen being transferred in to great effect.

His captain’s pick of Liverpool’s Luis Suarez for 16 points also helped him coolly collect the US$20 phone voucher and T-shirt winner’s prize from sponsors Cellcard.

In the Cellcard Fantasy facebook fanpage competition, an amazing 30 users were right in guessing that the Norwich v Liverpool humdinger would yield the most goals of any fixture in the round. However, only one individual, Veasna Morm, managed to predict the score would end 3-2 to Liverpool. Therefore the $10 phone voucher will find its way to Veasna.

The overall standings see table topper Sabina Lawreniuk and her side Why always me? maintain a 20-point lead over second placed Matt Culis’ PPFC.

Gameweek 36 this coming weekend will be completely dominated by the hype surrounding what could be a long-awaited title decider for Liverpool against Chelsea on Sunday, while places in Europe and Premier League survival are still being fiercely fought over.
