up we had FC Kicks versus Sporting Armada. We
were still at the relatively early stages of
Round 3 but this was potentially a Group A decider
as the two teams at the top of the table came
far today, Sporting Armada had yet to trail
in the tournament but that was soon set to change.
Not only was it set to change but it was to
do so in dramatic style. FC Kicks, who'd had
some extra time to prepare due to their walkover

3-0 up by half-time thanks to strikes from Thijs
van Puel, Jasper Kuipers and Auke Jager.

This was the proverbial game of two halves in
terms of the score at least. Will Wood scored
Sporting's first goal of the tournament and
he scored the first goal in this fixture too
in order to reduce the deficit to 3-1. The deficit
was further reduced to 3-2 with Will Wood scoring
his second of the game.
thought it was all over at half-time but it
wasn't. It was now as FC Kicks managed to hold

and almost a stunning comeback for Sporting
