three saw Red Light Runners of Ireland take
on Argon'ze of France.
Light Runners were very familiar in the Cup
competition of our tournaments having reached
this stage for the fifth time in five events.
On the previous 4 occasions they had secured
1 title (2008 Krakow Trophy), 1 runners-up finish
(2008 Barca Fives), 1 Semi-Final finish (2017
Budapest Fives) and 1 Quarter-Final finish (2016
Barcelona Fives). They looked in good form today
with 4 wins and 1 draw from their Group B fixtures.
Argon'ze team had reached the Cup for the first
time and were looking in good form. The Ze'Argon
team had lost 4-1 to Red Light Runners so maybe
the Argon'ze team will have learned something
from that game to plot a famous victory here.
was Argon'ze who took the lead with number “7”
Fehmi Badriddine on target. Red Light Runners
hit back through their number “4” Dilsoz Mohammedi.
The game finished 1-1 and we went into a penalty
Light Runners took the first penalty and we
saw 6 exemplary penalties for each team. Cory
Gallagher, John Mooney, Declan Doherty, Stephen
Doherty, Ian Ward, Dilsoz Mohammedi all stepped
up and scored for the Irish. Benjamin Cahart,
Nicolas Laharque, Fehmi Badredine, Thomas Bovier,
Quoc Binh Dang and Benjamin Cahart again were
all on target for the French.
seventh round of penalties decided this game.
Cory Gallagher had been phenomenal all day in
front of goal but he missed as Nicolas Laharque
scored and Argon'ze were through after a famous
had to say farewell to Red Light Runners and
we would like to thank them for making the journey
to the tournament. If they had won the penalty
shoot-out who knows what might have been? Could
they have gone all the way? We shall never know
but we are sure at some stage they will bag
that second title.
