Equipo De Cristhian (Spa)

 

The 2015 Barcelona Fives Trophy Final would see FC Atwood meet Equipo de Cristhian. Let's have a look at our two contenders;

FC Atwood

A good record today with 3 wins, 1 draw and 2 defeats especially when you consider the controversial nature of their opening game where the winning goal against them should not have counted. They had been free-scoring with 16 goals for and 11 goals against. They had scored 10 goals in their last 2 games alone.

Equipo de Cristhian

A similar results record of 3 wins, 1 draw and 2 defeats. They had not scored as many as their opponents with 11 goals so far today but had the tighter defence with 8 goals conceded. They had scored 7 in their last two games but also really tightened up at the back with just the 1 conceded in the knock-out stage.

This was our 8th Trophy competition and the 3rd at the Barcelona Fives with Equipo de Cristhian looking to become the first Spanish team to claim success. Drunk Perfect (due to kick-off in the Plate Final after this game) had come closest with a penalty shoot-out defeat here in 2013. Elcombe Old Boys who had just been defeated in today's Cup Semi-Final were the current holders of the Barcelona Fives Trophy (defeating Germany's SV Zoo 5-0 last year) so could FC Atwood keep the Trophy in English hands with victory?

On the field of play it was Equipo de Cristhian who struck first in front of a large crowd on Pitch D. Jair Moralez opened the scoring in the Semi-Final and he was to do the same here in the Final. In fact, Jair Moralez was proving to be the man for the big game as he added a second to put Equipo de Cristhian 2-0 up and in firm control of the match. He put the icing on the cake with a hat-trick to make it 3-0 and wrap up the win. Jair Moralez became the third man to score a hat-trick in a eurofootballfives.com Trophy Final after Matt Johnson (Sporting Abeergut Valencia Fives 2012) and Matej Rapcan (Ziar Crew Bratislava Fives 2014).

We offer our commiserations to FC Atwood who had played well in their first eurofootballfives.com competition. It should be noted they played the whole tournament, comprising 7 games, with just the 5 players and as such did not have the chance to rest legs and lungs with substitutions. They had goals across the whole squad and with an extra body or two and without the early referee decision that cost them could well have gone further in this tournament.

It was a superb victory for the Spanish team who won the Trophy conceding just 1 in the knock-out phase and scoring 10 in the process. The 2015 Barcelona Fives Trophy Winners Equipo de Cristhian.
