we would finish with Ben's Bellends and 3 Lions
FC. The two teams were guaranteed the bare minimum
of a place in the Plate but the Cup was still
an option. Here's what could happen;
Lions FC win: Would see them qualify for the Cup
with Scandittack FC and Ben's Bellends making
draw: As above.
Bellends win: Would mean a 3-team tie on 6 points
between these two teams and Scandittack FC and
it would come down to goal difference. At the
start of play, Scandittack FC had a 0 goal difference,
3 Lions FC were +4, Ben's Bellends were -5. So,
a five goal win would see Ben's Bellends qualify.
A 3 goal win or less would see 3 Lions FC qualify.
A 4-0 win would see 3 Lions FC and Scandittack
FC with identical records but 3 Lions FC go through
on head-to-head record.
clear? We thought so. On the pitch the teams played
out a 0-0 draw in the opening period and with
every passing minute the chances for Ben's Bellends
were diminishing needing to score so many goals.
The odds for 3 Lions FC progression were getting
better and better the longer it stayed 0-0 but
they put any doubts to bed when Thomas Nolan scored
the only goal of the game for a 1-0 win. 3 Lions
FC were through to the Cup.
