New Scientist Enigma 503 – Early in the Season

by Eric Emmet

From issue #1647, 14th January 1989

Four football teams are to play each other once. After some of the matches had been played a document giving a few details of the matches played, won, lost and so on was found. This time I am glad to say that, although it was rather a mess, all the figures given were correct. Here it is:

Team Played Won Lost Drawn Goals For Goals Against Points
A       1 4 5  
B     1     6 1
C         12    
D         9 5 4
E 1       3    

(Two points are given for a win and one point to each side for a draw.)

Find the score in all the matches that had been played.
