final game of Group C would see Peebles All Stars
host Red Cow Belgrade. At stake for Red Cow Belgrade
was a place in the Cup competition. They were
already assured of second position in the table
(a fine achievement in itself) but they had to
do all they could to ensure their second place
was one of the three best across Groups A to E
to make the Cup. A win would put them on 9 points
and give them a fighting chance. A draw or loss
would almost certainly see them miss out.
Peebles All Stars it was a last opportunity in
the group phase to claim a maiden victory to add
to the point they picked up in their second fixture.
They fought hard and at half-time the teams could
not be divided. All was level at 0-0.
first goal was always going to be crucial and
when it came it was scored by Ben Wooler of Red
Cow Belgrade. When Daz Bray made it 2-0 they were
on their way to 9 points but goal difference was
looking like it could be a factor so how many
could they get? Final score was 3-0 as Ben Wooler
scored his second of the game.
it turned out it was not quite enough for Red
Cow Belgrade as they fell short by the narrowest
of margins. They were one of four second placed
teams to finish on 9 points and they missed out
on goal difference. Red Cow Belgrade had +4 compared
to their competitors +5, +6 and +8.
All Stars would qualify for this afternoon's Trophy
