Bafta Boys were now up and running after their first win and had made a solid start with 4 points from a possible 6 plus two clean sheets for goalkeeper Petrin Petrov. They had the chance to build on this even further when they took on Sapadores. The Portuguese had so far lost both their games both by the same 3-0 scoreline. Bafta Boys may well have thought they were there for the taking.

 

At half-time the score was surprisingly still 0-0 but maybe we shouldn't have been surprised as this was the 4th out of 5 halves of football which had been goal-less in Bafta Boys games. It then all went goal crazy as Joe Bardwell scored his second and third of the day to put Bafta Boys 2-0 up before Tom Lambourne opened his account for 3-0.

 

Sapadores had kept it tight for a while but that 3-0 scoreline came back to haunt them yet again as they propped up the table.

 
 
 

Chateau Bravado Old Boys were next on the field to take on Sao Pedro. The English team had won their first game but lost out in Round 2. If they were to get back to winning ways it would need to be an epic result against a Portuguese team who had won both of their games to date. Sao Pedro needed to get a result to return to the top of the table and move back ahead of Bafta Boys.

 

Chateau Bravado Old Boys more than held their own in the first half and there was little to split the two teams. In these matches so often the tight games are decided by the opening goal as the other team then has to throw caution to the wind and chase the game with the risk of leaving the back door open. This is what happened in this game as Li Banto Batista opened the scoring and then capitalized again as he made it 2-0 to seal victory number 3 for Sao Pedro.

 

The Portuguese team were looking very good 3 games, 3 wins, 7 goals and none conceded. Impressive stuff.

 
 
 

We then had one of the most eagerly anticipated games of the tournament Parry St Germain against Bede FC. The two teams had history when they met in the 2011 Barcelona Fives when Bede FC lost 4-2 to Parry St Germain (playing as Preston Youth). There was a similar goal-fest in the 2012 Algarve Open which ended 7-3 to Parry St Germain. We'd witnessed an incredible 16 goals in 2 games between these two sides.

 

Due to their past meetings the two teams had become good friends off the pitch and this game had a bit of a party atmosphere about it.

 

Marvin Topping opened the scoring and it looked like Parry St Germain were on their way to a hat-trick of victories over Bede FC. The game reached half-time 1-0 in a quieter game in terms of goals. Bede FC then opened their account on the day through Graham Dillon. Dillon was not expecting to play on this tour as he had travelled with Parry St Germain but when Bede FC were down to 4 fit players (due to an injury to Andy Roberts) Dillon borrowed some boots, a Bede FC shirt and stepped up to the plate.

 

Although this game had a party atmosphere there was still a match to be won for Parry St Germain who sat in second place at the end of Round 2. They almost didn't manage it and left it very late. It was pretty much the last kick of the game that won it for Parry St Germain as Ian Parry struck to make it 2-1. It was a hat-trick of wins for Parry St Germain over Bede FC and also crucially kept them in second place in Group C.
