Hasanheide Hotspur (Ger)




Frank Hirth A (Eng)


After 50 games of football we came down to the most important of them all….game 51 – The 2014 Berlin Fives Cup Final.


What a Cup Final we had in prospect! Two teams who had been superb on the day and were playing in a eurofootballfives.com Final for the first time.


Frank Hirth A: From their 6 games to date they had 5 wins and 1 draw which they converted to a victory in extra time. They had scored 20 goals so far today and conceded 7.


Hasanheide Hotspur: They had reached their first Cup Final at the third attempt having previously reached the Quarter-Finals (2012) and Semi-Finals (2013). They had 6 wins from their 6 games scoring 22 goals and conceding 5.


The stats gave Hasanheide Hotspur the edge but the records would count for nothing once the game kicked-off. The only thing that mattered was what was going to happen on the pitch from now until the full-time whistle.


The game was under way and Hasanheide Hotspur got off to an absolute flyer. From a free kick Eamonn O'Neill slid in at the far post quicker than his opposition defenders to give his team a crucial lead with his eight of the day. Shortly after Rory Kierans was sent through and he lifted a delightful dinked finish over the advancing goalkeeper for 2-0 with his fifth of the day.


The sun was out and shining on Hasanheide Hotspur. There was then a good spell for Frank Hirth A who battled hard to get back in this game and they had certainly not written it off. Hasanheide Hotspur then countered as Richard Hanley made it 3-0 with his eighth of the day and it was not even half-time. You could be forgiven for thinking it was all over but just before the break Matt Limb struck for Frank Hirth A to make it 3-1. Game on.


Matt Limb's 7th of the tournament before the break had given his team a lifeline and renewed hope going into the second period. That hope was then dashed when a Kian Fleming header restored Hasanheide's three goal advantage at 4-1. Could Hasanheide now relax?



No, not at all. Jamie Spriddle's fifth of the day made it 4-2 but time was running out. Dan Spackman (also five for the tournament) made it 4-3 before time eventually ran out and Hasanheide Hotspur had done it – a first eurofootballfives.com victory!


We can not give enough credit to Frank Hirth A who fought all the way and have look buried a couple of times in that Final. To keep coming back showed a superb amount of character and ability. A better start and it could well have been them lifting the trophy – our commiserations go to them. They should not be too disconsolate though after a superb day's play.


Our congratulations go to Hasanheide Hotspur – 2014 Berlin Fives Champions! We'd like to thank everyone who participated for making it such a great day and we hope to see you all again at a tournament very soon.
