penultimate game for Gosham Rangers was versus
Water Boy. Gosham Rangers were currently 2 points
above the “drop zone” which was 7th place and
elimination from the tournament. They had a game
in hand over WEEDS Youth and this was it. The
could secure Plate qualification with victory
Boy were chasing a place in the Cup as they occupied
third place. However, wins for FC Mahou and Trilution
in Round 6 meant that the Cup was now almost beyond
their reach. They needed to win both, hope Trilution
lost their last game and witness a 6-goal swing
in goal difference. Regardless, they would look
to finish with a flourish as, even if they couldn't
qualify for the Cup, the higher they finished
the easier (in theory) their knock-out Quarter-Final
B had been a high-quality affair so far with a
number of draws and a lot of games decided by
just the odd goal. This was to be another one.
It was Water Boy who edged it with their third
victory of the morning. Pedro Lamy was the man
with the golden touch on this occasion as he helped
wrap up third place in the table for his team.
Boy's hopes of reaching the Cup were still alive.
For Gosham Rangers, they would go into the final
round probably needing to get a result.
