* GSF Drunkerz (Svk) win 6-5 on penalties.
 

The second final of the day would see GSF Drunkerz versus Budapest Celtic Lions. With seven games of football already under their belt the two teams would need to summon one last burst of energy to ensure they would be picking up winners and not runners-up medals in the presentation.

GSF Drunkerz had the chance to become the second Slovakian winners today after Ziar Crew's success in the Trophy competition.

Budapest Celtic were used to these pressure situations and had been in a number of eurofootballfives.com finals. The most notable success was the Lions squad lifting the 2013 Krakow Trophy Cup title. There was also two Cup Finals (sadly both defeats) for the Tigers at the 2011 and 2012 Budapest Fives. Then, this season there was two losing Plate Finals at the 2014 Budapest Fives (Panthers) and the 2014 Valencia Fives where the Lions lost to Saipan FC. Could they make it a second success here in Bratislava?

This Plate competition was notable so far by how close the games were 4 of the 6 had been drawn and gone to penalty shoot-outs. The Plate Final continued this trend despite the best efforts of the teams in normal time. The first half was tied at a goal each with sweeper-keeper Miroslav Saga scoring his second of the tournament for the home team and Lewis Kelly scoring for the away side. The second half also saw a goal each as Jakub Mihaliks fourth of the tournament for GSF Dunkerz was equaled by Lewis Kelly's ninth goal of the day. Final score, 2-2.

Penalty shoot-out time again. It was GSF Drunkerz to strike first and they took the initiative to make it 1-0 before David Lessman, scorer of the decisive penalty in the Semi-Final, levelled it up at 1-1. Saga the goalkeeper became the goalscorer to put GSF Drunkerz 2-1 up and then the first miss. Football can be a cruel game as it was Lewis Kelly, the man whose goals had done so much for the Lions today, who saw his effort saved by the out-stretched boot of Saga. GSF Drunkerz had a penalty to win it but saw a well hit strike come bouncing back of the corner of post and cross-bar and out. The Lions had a lifeline and goalkeeper Timo Hussman gratefully took it.

So, 2-2 at full-time and 2-2 after regulation penalties. We were into sudden-death penalty time and it was GSF Drunkerz to continue and get back to goal-scoring ways. Peter Roscoe was equal to it for the Lions and it was 3-3. GSF Drunkerz made it 4-3 before Joe McCann stepped up. He scored a penalty in the Semi-Final shoot-out and he scored another one here for 4-4. GSF Drunkerz rattled in their next one for 5-4 and a confident penalty from Anouzk Liechti made it 5-5.

GSF Drunkerz were relentless as they made it 6-5 and it was the turn of Yogi Agustadwi with three goals in the tournament so far today. It was agony for him but joy for GSF Drunkerz as Saga threw himself to the bottom right hand corner and knock the ball clear. GSF Drunkerz had won it in epic style.

We offer our consolations to Budapest Celtic Lions on a fine campaign they could not have got any closer to the winners trophy. Our 2014 Bratislava Fives Plate Winners though GSF Drunkerz!
