Group B continued with The A Team versus GSF Drunkerz. Both teams had claimed victory in their opening games and another win here would put them in charge of Group B.

GSF Drunkerz entered the eurofootballfives.com fold in September at the inaugural Bratislava Fives. A solid morning's effort in the group phase saw them win three out of their five games and finish in third position of their 6-team group. They qualified for the Plate and in the Quarter-Finals made short work of Saga Louts, 4-0. Shrewsbury Townsend proved a sterner test in the Semi-Finals and they needed penalties to go through after a 0-0 draw. Penalties were needed again in the Plate Final after a 2-2 draw with Budapest Celtic Lions. They won a monumental shoot-out 6-5 to claim the silverware.

If they could claim victory here then they would be aiming at a level higher than the Plate by reaching the Cup. It did not start well though as Dydynho put the French team ahead at half-time. Dydynho had won the Top Goalscorer award at the 2013 Krakow Trophy and 2014 Budapest Fives he was already up and running with 4 goals today.

GSF Drunkerz had come from 1 goal down in their opening game but would have to come from 2-0 down in this one as the A Team doubled their lead with a well worked free-kick. It looked like Dydynho was going to take a strike at goal with the angle favouring a far post effort. It was Abdel Bekhouche who struck it though with a left foot effort at the near post the goalkeeper got across but could not keep it out, 2-0.

Michal Casnocha scored to make it 2-1 and was the comeback on again for GSF Drunkerz? In a word, no. Time ran out and it was The A Team who had two wins out of two.

 
 
 

We had two opening game victors in the previous game and now we had two teams looking for their first win of the day as Team Bear II took on The Dave Cole Minors.

The Dave Cole Minors came from the stable of Team Extreme who made their debut at the 2012 Valencia Fives where they finished 2nd in their 6-team group behind Oman's CBD Boys to earn the right to play Grant Thornton (Fra) in the Quarter-Finals which is where they left the competition. Grant Thornton (Fra) incidentally went on to win the 2013 Mallorca Fives a year later. Team Extreme also played in the 2013 Mallorca Fives but avoided playing the French team for a second time. They finished third in Group B (behind Hungary's FC Miracle who won the 2012 Valencia Fives) which meant qualification to the Plate competition. They were defeated in the Semi-Finals by Son Gual who went on to win the Plate.

At the 2014 Amsterdam Fives they had their most successful European sojourn as they won Group B. In the Cup Quarter-Finals they defeated ADP Netherlands 3-1 before an epic encounter against 3 time eurofootballfives.com champions, Athletico Do Hollande, saw them exit the competition 4-3. As we have seen already they came to Bratislava for a stag weekend and with a name change to boot.

With this game underway it was a slow start for the Dave Cole Minors as Team Bear II came flying out of the traps. Team Bear II raced into a 4-0 lead. Rhys Tyrrell got the ball rolling before a Chris Tanner double and Jake Christensen finding the net it was only half-time. There was another four goal salvo for Team Bear after the break with Chris Tanner and Jake Christensen both going on to complete hat-tricks and Rhys Tyrell bagging his second of the game.

The Dave Cole Minors did have something to cheer when Antonio Vernaschi scored his third goal in two games but, alas for the Dave Cole Minors, it was to be a mere consolation as Team Bear II wrapped up the biggest win of the day.
