Verb Issue.. The EFFORT was put before the score was received, so the earlier action EFFORT should be in past perfect ... Thus, ' he had ' is correct.

in which vs where : In formal english, where should generally be used for a space, a location etc. Here we are talking of a subject .. in which is more appropriate
