game on Pitch D of Round 6 in Group A was Naranjitos
versus Ealing Expendables. Both teams played at
the 2014 Valencia Fives but did not play each
other although they both had successful tournaments.
Both qualified for the Cup but Ealing Expendables
went one step further getting to the Semi-Finals
compared to the Quarters for Naranjitos. The English
team also won their group compared to a third
place finish for Naranjitos.
form of these two teams was the reverse of this.
Naranjitos had stormed the group so far with 5
wins and a maximum 15 points. Officially they
needed 1 point from their last two games to make
the Cup but due to goal difference they were effectively
Expendables would not be making the Cup like in
Valencia and were instead battling to make the
Trophy. Despite some good early performances they
had near misses in terms of results. They had
just picked up their first win and would look
to consolidate this to make the Trophy (or possibly
even the Plate).
Ealing Expendables it was another case of “close
but no cigar”. They fell behind in this one to
goals from Javier Sanchez Flores and then David
Moya Aparicio but hit back with James Oldham's
fourth of the morning. It was another defeat though
by just the odd goal – the fourth time today.
Naranjitos, the win guaranteed Cup qualification
and maintained their 100% record.
