Round 2 started with Rat Goblins versus GSF Drunkerz.

Rat Goblins were making a welcome return to eurofootballfives.com action. It hardly seems possible but it was 2009 that we last saw them at the Krakow Trophy. They entered two teams The Love Generation and Borussia Dorchmen. The Love Generation finished 5th in their group to miss out on the knock-out phase but Borussia Dorchmen finished 3rd in Group B to qualify for the Plate. A 2-1 win against DHL Prague Blue in the Semi-Finals and another 2-1 win over Brighton & Hove Rockets in the Final ensured they won the Plate competition. More success in Bratislava?

After opening game defeat they needed to find their form sooner than later and they were up against a GSF Drunkerz team who had also tasted defeat in the opening round of fixtures. Sadly for Rat Goblins fans they were to be on the wrong end of another result as GSF Drunkerz bounced back in style and hit their travelling opponents for six.

Peter Tatar got the ball rolling for the local Slovak team before a Martin Volek brace made it 3-0 at half-time. Jakub Mihalik made it 4-0, Dominik Carny converted for 5-0 before Miroslav Saga rounded off a superb performance for a 6-0 win.

 
 
 

The Never Tarps were up next as they took on Shahs of Sunset. The Never Tarps were looking to avenge opening game defeat whereas Shahs of Sunset were looking to build upon an impressive Round 1 victory.

Momentum is often a crucial asset in eurofootballfives.com tournaments and it was with Shahs of Sunset going into this game as they built up a 2-0 lead with Paolo Ferrari scoring both to move him onto three goals for the tournament thus far. It meant Shahs of Sunset had scored six goals without reply so far today.

In the second half their good form continued and it became seven goals without reply as Martin Weltman scored his second of the tournament to wrap up a 3-0 victory. Shahs of Sunset were looking good on maximum points.

For The Never Tarps it looked like it could be a long day they had the bare minimum 5 players and one of those was now playing with an injury. With the Bratislava sun blazing it was tough work out there.

 
 
 

To complete Round 2 we had Budapest Celtic Tigers versus Fritzl Palace.

Budapest Celtic entered the eurofootballfives.com fold in 2011 on home soil at the 2011 Budapest Fives and in the early days of competition it was their Tigers squad who was traditionally the most successful. They lost on penalties in the 2011 Budapest Cup Final and were Runners Up again in the same competition 12 months later. The squad has chopped and changed over the years between the Tigers and Lions squads (and also Pumas and Panthers on occasion) and the Lions squad lifted the 2013 Krakow Trophy on this very weekend last year.

They had some pedigree and had opened up with a 3-2 win today. Their opponents had also started well with a 3-0 win and it would be those opponents, Fritzl Palace, who would keep that good start going.

Fritzl Palace came flying out of the blocks as Ryan Rook dealt the first blow to give the English team a 1-0 lead. 1-0 became 2-0 when Rook doubled his tally and that of his team. Rook went on to complete a first-half hat-trick and effectively seal the points with half the game to go.

There was no way back for the Budapest Celtic Tigers as Fritzl Palace did a professional job seeing the game out and claiming win #2.
