14 of Group A was the fixture between Bull Fossils
B and Skackney FC. Neither team had too much
to play for in terms of qualification as their
fates were both already settled. Bull Fossils
B would be eliminated after this game whatever
happened here. Skackney FC would most likely
play in the Plate regardless of the result from
this tie. However, Skackney FC would no doubt
want at least a point to secure third place
and, with it, a theoretically easier Semi-Final
match. If Cheesecake FC lost their last game
they had an outside shot at the Cup.
Fossils B picked up a point in their very first
game (0-0) but that must have felt a long time
ago now as three defeats on the bounce had left
them rooted to the foot of the table. They would
have got that sinking feeling again as they
fell behind in the first half to a James Shale
goal. It was 1-0 to Skackney FC at half-time.
the second period Dom Higgins third goal of
the tournament made it 2-0 as the Kiwis were
seemingly en route to their third victory of
the day. If there was any doubt the destination
of the points were settled when James Shale
knocked in his second of the game.
FC would finish third in the table. Bull Fossils
B would finish in sixth.
