The Mavericks strike win

Gameweek 13 was one of those bizarre rounds of the Cellcard Fantasy League where dynamic defenders stole the limelight.

The Dream team had an eerie symmetry to it in that all four members of its back line grabbed 15 points apiece after scoring a goal at one end and keeping a clean sheet at the other in their respec-
tive games.

West Ham’s Aaron Cresswell, Liverpool’s Glen Johnson, Man City’s Gael Clichy and Man United’s Chris Smalling also each collected the three-point bonuses for their starring roles.

Meanwhile, the seven other individuals in the elite 11 of the gameweek all finished with the same 10-point tallies, including Sunderland keeper Costel Pantilimon, West Ham midfielder Joe Cole and QPR striker Charlie Austin.

The weekly competition was a close run affair with Brenden McNally and his team, The Mavericks, triumphing by just one point with a total of 69.

Brenden’s pick of Man United’s Wayne Rooney as captain granted him 16 points and his only player in the Dream team was Clichy. However, selections such as Arsenal’s Danny Welbeck (nine points) and Swansea’s Gylfi Sigurdsson (seven) helped lift The Mavericks to victory.

Brenden will receive US$20 phone credit from Cellcard, who also offer $10 per gameweek for answering a question correctly on their facebook page (Cellcard.Fantasy).

A total of 21 goals were scored during gameweek 13, with Man United, QPR and Man City each netting the team maximum of three. Only one user, Sengheng Sao, guessed 21 goals, and he also had Man United as his tiebreaker answer. So the $10 phone credit will go to him.

Gameweek 14 kicks off tonight with six clashes and concludes tomorrow night with the remaining four ties.
