It’s the group stages, so we expected to see some big wins for the top seeds, although some games proved much tighter affairs.
Nick 6 – 1 Disney XD
CNToo 5- 1 Pop Girl
- As expected, Nick and CNToo kicked off their campaigns with assured victories.
- Top seeds Nick beat Disney XD a 6-1 in the tournament curtain raiser.
- Disney XD may want to think about fielding their ‘B’ team in the next tournament, as their +1 channel actually outperformed their flagship station for the day in question.
- Meanwhile, CNToo did their goal difference no harm with a 5-1 victory against Pop Girl, which they may come to rely on in their remaining fixtures.
Boomerang 9 – 1 Tiny Pop
Nick Jr2 2 – 3 Milkshake
- There was a 9-1 victory for Boomerang, a side expected to go far in this tournament,
- Tiny Pop were left licking their wounds and will have to spring a surprise against Nick Jr 2 if they want to avoid that early flight home.
- Milkshake just edged Nick Jr2 3-2 in a thrilling encounter
- Milkshake will fancy their chances of making the quarter finals now, whilst Nick Jr2 will see this as a missed opportunity.
Nick Jr 3 – 1 Cartoon Network
Pop 3 – 2 CITV Breakfast
- A thrilling round of matches in this group, with heavyweights Nick Jr and Cartoon Network reminiscent of their footballing counterparts Spain & Italy.
- But it was tournament favourites Nick Jr who snatched victory 3-1.
- Cartoon Network should still make the knockout stages, but it’s likely to be in second place, which would likely mean a tricky quarter final tie with CITV.
- Meanwhile Pop edged arguably the closest game of the competition so far, nicking a 3-2 win against CITV Breakfast, which will no doubt delight their fans.
Yesterday’s Group D results are in:
CITV 3 – 2 Nicktoons
Cartoonito 4 – 1 Kix!
- Perhaps not the routine victory that CITV may have expected against Nicktoons, but 3 points in the bag and the second favourites march on.
- Cartoonito opened their campaign with a 4-1 win against Kix.
