CBS FC hits 100-mark for Fantasy League win

Perhaps it was the defenders that had their energy sapped the most from the recent two-week break for internationals, as goals appeared in no short supply in the weekend’s clashes in the Premier League.

Cellcard Fantasy managers were treated to an average of 3.4 goals per game, meaning tallies were on average much higher than in the preceding gameweek.

However, an element of controversy washed over the MVP performance by Chelsea’s Eden Hazard, with his first goal set up by a seemingly illegal challenge on the goalkeeper by team-mate Samuel Eto’o.

Belgian midfielder Hazard went on to net another and set up one more to amass an awesome 18 points.

Man City striker Sergio Aguero continued his hot streak. A brace against West Ham coupled with an assist yielded the Argentinean 16 points. Arsenal’s marquee signing Mesut Ozil bagged his own double past Norwich for 15 points.

In the weekly competition, we found our first Centurian since the opening round as Rithea Kimsour racked up a cool 100 points with his side CBS FC.

Rithea’s triple digits was made possible by selecting four Dream teamers (Hazard, Ozil, Everton’s Kevin Mirallas for 13 points and West Brom’s Liam Ridgewell for 9) as well as Arsenal’s unselfish frontman Olivier Giroud as captain for 16 points.

Rithea collects a $20 phone voucher and T-shirt from sponsors Cellcard, who also pose a question on their facebook fanpage to accompany the gameweek.

Gameweek 8’s question – Who would be the top points scorer in the Cellcard Fantasy League and how many points would he get? – was answered correctly by three users, but R’Visal CSL was declared the winner of the $10 phone voucher prize for getting closest to Hazard’s total of 18.

Check out www.facebook.com/Cellcard.Fantasy for the next question.

Gameweek 9 is highlighted by a clash between Chelsea and Man City as well as the Tyne and Wear derby between Newcastle and Sunderland.
