were now past the halfway point in Group A as
we entered Round 5. We had 3rd versus 4th on Pitch
A as Real De Groot entertained Pique Blinders.
De Groot from the Netherlands competed at the
2017 Mallorca Tournament with four teams – KML,
FC De Rimmer, Mannenliefde and Het Sterretje.
3 of their teams qualified for the Plate competition
whilst KML qualified for the Cup.
went out at the Cup Quarter-Final stage on penalties
after a 2-2 draw. In the Plate competition FC
De Rimmer and Het Sterretje fell at the Quarter-Final
stage. Mannenliefde went all the way to the Plate
Final where they drew 1-1 with FC Shark before
losing on penalties.
the moment, Real De Groot were one of 3 teams
on 7 points on the cusp of Cup/Plate qualification.
A win here, against another one of those teams
on 7 would help their cause in making the Cup.
the same was very much true for Pique Blinders.
A win would lift the victors into second place
in the table. Neither team could find a successful
path to goal though and they had to settle for
a point each. Final score, 0-0.
