    Smile get best on ground

    Hello. I don't know exactly what this below sentence means.

    Patrick got best on ground at the district lightning premiership.

    Does it mean Patrick was the best player at the district soccer league?

    Re: get best on ground

    I think best on ground means that he was the best player in a game, not just the best on his team.

    Re: get best on ground

    Sounds right. I've never met it though - 'Man of the Match' is more common.

    'Best in Show' refers to horses, dogs, and flower shows.
