Dominic Field claims top prize at season’s midpoint

The halfway stage of the 2014/15 Premier League season was marked on Monday night with Liverpool’s 4-1 rout of Swansea.

The Red’s marquee summer signing Adam Lallana knocked in two of those goals to help his side to their biggest win since March, picking up 15 points in the bargain and earning himself pride of place in Gameweek 19’s Dream team.

It wasn’t a particularly high-scoring round with three matches ending goal-less, but other star performances included Stoke striker Mam Biram Diouf netting a double to bag 13 points, his defensive teammate Erik Pieters assisting a goal and keeping a clean sheet for 11 points and Leicester midfielder Riyad Mahrez scoring at one end and preventing any at the other end to amass 11 points.

The winner of the round, and a $20 phone voucher from Cellcard, was Socheat Mao with his team Socheat FC79 on 68 points, which was the second lowest winning tally of the campaign so far.

Socheat cashed in big on midfielders with Chelsea’s Eden Hazard as captain for 20 points, Santi Cazorla of Arsenal for 10 points and Swansea’s Gylfi Sigurdsson for 8 points.

Meanwhile, Cellcard’s new initiative this season sees the top five managers at the halfway point rewarded with prizes.

An Alcatel C9 phone and SIM card worth $60 will be winging its way to Dominic Field, whose team Ych-y-fi (which is a mild expletive and term of disgust in Welsh) has racked up 1,146 points to date to lead the overall standings by an impressive margin of 33.

Second place, worthy of an Alcatel Mini and SIM card, is currently occupied by Cameron Strong’s CaptHun Sensible, while the third place bonus of an Alcatel C5 and SIM card goes to Mike Nicholson with his side billy grange just a point behind.

Martin Tosh’s Seim Reap De Jong [sic] is another point back in fourth, which receives a SIM card, as does fifth placed Mark Pastro’s Snapperheads on 1,094.

The same prizes will on offer for the top five finishers come the end of the season.

In the concurrently run Cellcard Fantasy Facebook competition, no user correctly guessed the 4-1 scoreline for the Liverpool game, so the prize rolls over to Gameweek 20, which plays out all ten fixtures on tomorrow’s New Year Day.
