Six football teams — A, B, C, D, E and F — are to play each other once. After some of the matches have been played a table giving some details of the matches played, won, lost, etc., looked like this:
(Two points are given for a win and one point to each side in a drawn match).
Find the score in each match.
This is the 1000th puzzle posted to the site in the enigma category. However, since there are a couple of duplicate puzzles (Enigma 83 duplicates Enigma 9, and Enigma 1770 duplicates Enigma 1757) I’m holding off claiming we’ve got to 1000 Enigma Puzzles until next week (and it also means I don’t have to celebrate the 1000th puzzle by posting a football problem).
