Brain-Teaser 495

From The Sunday Times, 22nd November 1970 [link]

All five forwards (numbers 7-11) scored in their team’s eight-nil win. Their names, alphabetically, were Alan, Bob, Craig, Dave and Eric.

Five goals were kicked (number 10 scoring the last of just three consecutive ones). Dave headed his second goal. He and two other forwards scored two goals each — heading one and kicking the other. Successive goals were scored by the other two forwards. No player scored two consecutive goals.

The scores, in scoring order, were:

1st goal: Number 11
2nd goal: Alan
3rd goal: Eric
4th goal: Number 8
5th goal: Bob
6th goal: Number 7
7th goal: Dave
8th goal: Number 9
