game to come for Algarve Stars was against Drunken
DisAudley – it was the top two teams in the Group
C table about to do battle in a game that would
go a long way to deciding who would be Group C
Drunken DisAudley this was their final fixture
and last chance to put points on the board. A
win would see them crowned champions, a draw might
do the same but they'd need other results to go
their way. They had some comfort in the fact that
even defeat here should still them qualify for
the Cup but no doubt mean a tougher Quarter-Final
Stars had the chance to leapfrog their opponents
and claim the top position which would make them
favourites for Group C going into Round 5. A draw
or defeat would leave them vulnerable to the chasing
pack of Why Always Morris? and Skidmarks.
was a typical top of the table clash – close,
competitive and goals hard to come by. The two
teams reached the interval all square at 0-0.
This was a score that would probably please Drunken
DisAudley more than the Portuguese team. Nuno
Pines then swung the pendulum into Algarve Stars
favour as he put his team ahead.
DisAudley had scored 6 in 4 games so far today
but they were unable to add to their tally as
the Algarve Stars defence remained resolute. They
clung on to their clean sheet, completed the 1-0
victory and claimed the lead in Group C.
DisAudley had completed their morning's work –
it was a pretty good morning, 60% win ratio and
they had earned a place in the elite Cup competition.
