As we entered the final Round of games we knew that Athletico Do Hollande were already league winners and Blurry Eyed Winks were bottom. Your guess on where the other four teams would finish is as good as mine. With all teams on 6 points it would come down to a last game shoot-out and potentially goal difference splitting these teams.

 

Let's get the walkover fixture out the way first as RFM claimed a 3-0 win over the Blurry Eyed Winks. This meant RFM would definitely play in the Cup but a 2 nd or 3 rd placed finish was still to be decided.

 

Of the remaining 3 teams on 6 points, Ireland's Deportivo Dooradoyle had the toughest task as they met Athletico Do Hollande. They would have to be at their very best to get a result here or hope the Dutch had one eye on their Cup Semi-Final already. It was a great performance from Deportivo Dooradoyle who gave this game a real go and Athletico, in fairness to the other sides, also put in a strong display. Goals from Deportivo's Keith Lynch and David Daly were answered by Athletico's Guillermo Richaards and Brian Sno.

 

At half-time the teams were level at 2-2 and Deportivo knew they were not far away from getting the result they needed. However, their level of play could not be maintained and in the second period Athletico eased away from their opponents. From the moment Jerrel Fraenk put his team 3-2 up the result was never in doubt as John Hanst made it 4-2, Jerrel Fraenk completed his hat-trick to make it 6-2 before Marvin Fraenk made it 7-2. The result condemned Deportivo Dooradoyle to the Plate competition.

 
 
 

This meant the final game of Group B was a straight shoot-out between The Gunners and Rigford Seahawks Omega. Should the game finish in a draw then Rigford Seahawks Omega would claim the final Cup qualification place courtesy of their superior goal difference. They also had the incentive of joining their Alpha squad in the elite Cup competition.

 

Both teams had so far produced mixed displays and every time you thought they'd kick on a defeat reared its ugly head neither could afford such a defeat at this stage. When the referee got the game underway it was The Gunners who took the initiative when Sonny Javes put them 1-0 up. He doubled the advantage to make it 2-0 before half-time and The Gunners were well and truly in the driving seat.

 

Rigford Seahawks Omega had it all to do. They had one half of football to revive their hopes of taking the overall 2011 Amsterdam Fives title. Could they do it? If they were they would need to overcome a 3-0 deficit as Sonny Javes completed a fine hat-trick and what an important game to score it in. It was a hat-trick that ensured three points and ensured his team's safe passage into the Cup Quarter-Finals.

 

Rigford Seahawks Omega found the deficit too much to comeback from and they would go through to the Plate Quarter-Finals. Although they could not join their sister squad in the Cup it did throw up the possibility of the Rigford Seahawks becoming the first club to win Cup and Plate in the same tournament.
