Sunday Times Teaser 2721 – Milliner’s Hat-Trick

by Nick MacKinnon

Four groups of four teams each play in a football tournament in which teams within a group play each other once. So far each team has played two matches and the distribution of points within each group is different. Also two teams in each group are level on points and have their positions set by their goals scored.

Nine players have each scored 1 goal, Milliner has scored 4 (including a hat trick) and Orlando has scored 2, although his team is not top of its group.

What are the results of the games played by Milliner’s and Orlando’s teams?
