George’s Path to Victory
In his first match George took on previous UK FIWC Champion Adam Winster and he cruised to a very impressive 3v0 victory.
In the second match the other online qualifier Samuelson Anjorin drew with Adam Winster, that was Adam out.
In the third match George took on Samuelson Anjorin and ran out 2v0 winner. That meant George had 6 points with Sam and Adam both on 1, so George progressed to the Grand Final.
On to the Grand Final where Ty Walton awaited George. George was 1v0 up at half time and took a further lead in the 2nd half before Ty pulled one back. George scored his 3rd and deciding goal before Ty pulled one back very late in injury time. The final whistle went and George was our new deserved champion.
