up was Magnum versus KPN Digital as France met
were also making a return to Amsterdam after
competing at the 2015 edition of the tournament.
They were doing particularly well with 4 wins
out of 5 in the group phase before Storm Zejko
defeated all teams. In hugely challenging conditions
they had scored 16 goals and conceded just 5
before the Code Red weather warning curtailed
the day's activities. Could they complete unfinished
business here in Amsterdam in 2018? On a glorious
summer's day the weather should not have an
impact this year!
Digital were making their debut and it was a
really tough start. 3 first half and 4 second
half goals meant they were on the wrong end
of a 7-0 score. Bruno Parente (5) and David
Teixeira (2) were the men to do the damage.
Jonathan Pitrau kept a clean sheet and everything
was looking good for the French team.
