Adrian Davies winner again in Gillingham

Adrian vs Kye
Kent Invicta another great evening of play last Friday. It was the returning Welsh Wizard, Adrian Davies, who took the win in the KIV WASPA League last Friday edging out Kye Arnold on their head to head score line from the first match of the evening. There were many tight games which ended up with Adrian and Kye neck a neck into the last session with Terry Arnold still in a position to take the overall win. However the last games went in Adrian’s favour as the Welshman scored a late equalizer against Terry to draw 1-1 and Kye endured a frustrating 0-0 stalemate with Dave Collier. This meant that after 5 matches the top two players had an identical record of 10 points and a +4 goal difference so their first round result of 1-0 over Kye gave the victory to Adrian. It has to be said that Rob McCormick grabbed the result of the evening however with a fantastic 1-0 win over Adrian in round 2.

Final Table – All KIV
1. Adrian Davies (Open) – 10pts +4 (wins on 1-0 head to head over Kye) 2. Kye Arnold (U19) – 10pts +4 3. Terry Arnold (Vets) – 8pts +3 4. Dave Collier (Vets) – 5pts -2 5. Rob McCormick (Vets) – 4 pts -5 6. Paul Frank (Vets) – 3pts -4
