were two games left for each team to finish as
high up in the Group D table as possible. Red
Light Runners were in pole position with 15 points,
a 3 point lead over second place and a four point
lead over third place. They were not in a position
to relax though as they were due to play the third
placed team in the final round and so to be sure
of a berth in the Cup they needed a win here.
opponents would be Unbelievable Technippers. They
were struggling in 7th position at the moment
with 2 draws and 3 defeats thus far. As things
stood they would be eliminated but they were only
a couple of points from fifth position – you feel
anything they could muster from this game would
be a bonus.
task ahead of Unbelievable Technippers was huge
– the Red Light Runners not only had a 100% record
today but throughout their group phase career
in our tournaments. When you take into today's
games so far plus the 2008 Krakow Trophy and 2008
Barca Five, Red Light Runners had played 12 and
won 12. They had scored 56 and conceded just 9.
#13 never looked in doubt and it was Cory Gallagher
who stole the show. He scored his first hat-trick
in eurofootballfives.com action that took his
tally to the day to 9 goals. He was one of a handful
of players in real contention for the top goalscorer
award today. Red Light Runners had guaranteed
their place in the Cup with a game to spare.
Technippers should just forget this game and hope
other Round 6 results had gone their way to give
them a shout of qualification in Round 7.
