     The scoring pattern in the tournament is as follows:

    Two points are awarded to the winning team. In case of a tie, both teams are awarded one point, so the total points in the standings should always equal the total number of games played ( since each game played is counted as one for each of the two participating teams). Of course, total goals scored for and goals scored against must be the same, since every goal scored for one team is scored against another.

    The games are played in the following order: Game 1: A Vs B; Game 2: A Vs C; Game B Vs C

    Can you determine the score of each of the above games ?
