Wooden Spoon was a chance for those teams who
had finished their groups in 5th place to have
a shot at redemption, a second chance and a chance
to prolong their Berlin Fives experience.
kick us off on Pitch A we had the El Dude Brothers
versus Friedrichschain Rovers. The El Dude Brothers
could consider themselves unlucky to be here and
not in a higher competition as with two draws
and one a sensational result against Luminy Wolves
they would be ruing two narrow 1-0 defeats in
a tight group. On paper, The El Dude Brothers
looked the favourites.
could point to a very tough group for their 5th
place finish with ABC United and GFC Transylvania
running riot plus Team Geek who were eating up
the Plate .
game was set-up nicely and it was El Dude Brothers
who had the better of the early exchanges and
they opened up a nice 3-1 lead at half-time as
Matt Crane scored his first of the day and Dave
Hill took his personal tally to 3. Richard Greenwell
was doing ok for Friedrichschain Rovers and his
third of the day kept them in the hunt.
Crane's second of the game after the break ended
any hopes of a Rovers comeback and El Dude Brothers
had won their first game of the day. They were
unbeaten in 3 games….not bad for a supposed Wooden
like to thank Friedrichschain Rovers who entered
the tournament under difficult circumstances losing
a team-mate only a few weeks before the event.
Best wishes to all.
