Fantasy league enters second exciting week


Six-goal victories were the order of the day this weekend, so it was no surprise to see a number of high-scoring attacking players from the teams who profited.

Newcastle’s shock 6-0 thumping of Aston Villa at St James’s Park resulted in three players making the team of the week. hat-trick hero Andy Carroll picked up 17 points, while Kevin Nolan, who has been operating in ‘the hole’ for the Geordies this season, scored twice to give him 15 points from midfield.

He wasn’t the top-scoring midfield player this week, however, with that honour falling at the lightning-quick feet of Theo Walcott. Blackpool were brought back down to earth with a bump via a 6-0 drubbing at the Emirates, Walcott grabbing a hat trick to pick up 21 points. An honourable mention must also go to Gareth Bale, who scored twice for Spurs at Stoke – the second a sumptuous volley into the top corner – earning 15 points.

The overall winner was Hemacheat FC with 94 points, but the winner of the weekly US$20 phone-voucher-prize and a T-shirt goes to fifth-placed Heng Darith on 86 points with his team Machine Gun. Darith did particularly well because of his canny pick of Carlos Tevez, who earned double points for the team, as he was captain and he scored twice.
