Skidmarks 7th eurofootballfives.com appearance was gathering momentum as they now had 3 wins from their 4 games so far. They next met a Telferscot FC team who had 1 win, 1 draw and 2 defeats to their name. It was second versus sixth in the table.

Over the years, Skidmarks had a great record in the group phase of our tournaments. Before this morning's games their record read played 28, won 17, drawn 9 and lost just 2 with 64 goals scored and 20 conceded. Only once had they finished outside the top two in their group. They looked to consolidate their position in the top two of Group B here.

Neil Taylor scored his first of the tournament to set Skidmarks on their way before Luke Hatfield was on the mark for the fourth game in a row to make it 2-0. Jamie Dewinter put the game safe at 3-0.

It was Telferscot FC who would have the last word though as Jonathan Dalling reduced the deficit to 3-1. Alas for him and his team it was to be a mere consolation.

 
 
 

The Spice Boys were leading Group B with an exemplary record of 4 wins out of 4 but they were being kept on their toes by Skidmarks and Prospe FC who were only three points and The Spice Boys were still to play each of those teams. Before they would embark on these fixtures they were due to entertain Ladzio FC. A win was a must for The Spice Boys going into those games but they should not take their opponents lightly.

On paper this looked an easy result to predict The Spice Boys 4 wins from 4 in first place versus Ladzio FC 4 defeats from 4 in eighth place. It looked simple but we have certainly had occasions when bottom has beaten top in eurofootballfives.com competition before.

The Spice Boys did their best to ensure they were not the victims of a giantkilling as they established a 2-0 lead with goals from Samuel Oduntan (now scored 4 games in a row) and Michael Situ. Ladzio FC pulled a goal back to make it 2-1 when Amin Raza found the back of the net.

Could Ladzio FC pull off a shock comeback? The short answer is no. If you were wondering where the now customary Ryan Williams goal was it arrived right on cue. He maintained his goal-per-game record as he completed the scoring to make it 3-1.

 
 
 

The game on Pitch C in Round 5 was Atletico Bardino versus Rapid Bosco Navas. Atletico Bardino came into the game having just secured their first point with a 0-0 draw against Telferscot FC. Rapid Bosco Navas started off well with two wins but followed this up with two defeats that had seen them slip to fifth position. Rapid Bosco Navas had qualified for the Cup on 8 of their 10 previous appearances they needed to get back to winning ways here if they wanted to make that 9 in 11.

Atletico Bardino had really tightened things up at the back and another strong defensive performance saw Andrea Brunelli keep his second clean sheet in a row. The Italian team were struggling a little at the other end as they were unable to breach the Rapid Bosco Navas goal. Rapid had a fine goalkeeper themselves with David Garcia Gallego keeping his third clean sheet in fives games.

The final score of 0-0 meant another point for Atletico Bardino. They now needed wins. Rapid Bosco Navas edged up a place from fifth to fourth.

 
 
 

Bruton Black Cats were in action again on Pitch D where they played host to Spanish team Prospe FC. The last time the English played Spanish opponents they lost narrowly 1-0 to Rapid Bosco Navas. This promised to be an even tougher prospect as Prospe FC were on a run of three wins in a row whilst scoring 8 goals and not conceding any during this period.

If Prospe FC were to win this then there would be a clear top three emerging in the battle for the two Cup qualification places. Despite their good run anything other than a defeat for Prospe FC would see them slip off the pace. Bruton Black Cats currently sat in fourth position in the Plate qualification places. A win for them would help consolidate this position and they would join their opponents on 9 points.

Prospe FC seemed to be in no mood to let their momentum slide as they were on the goal trail again. Enrique Serrano, David Pujol and Carlos Perez all got on the scoresheet as Prospe FC forged a 3-0 lead. The Spanish goalkeeper David Valdivia was denied a fourth successive clean sheet as Joe Hunter made it 3-1.
