Game 6 threw DHL Prague Red and Csabagyongye together. The Hungarian team sat pretty on the top of Group D whereas DHL Prague Red were in a cluster of teams all on 3 points. A win for the Czechs would do wonders for their chances.

The two teams competed superbly and DHL Prague Red really stepped up their performance. They matched Csabagyongye every step of the way and earned a 0-0 draw. Both defences and goalkeepers were on top to blunt their opponents attack. Csabagyongye goalkeeper Marton Beck had kept his 3rd clean sheet and was still to concede in the tournament. Donald for DHL Prague Red was not far behind with his second shut-out.

Csabagyongye consolidate first place, DHL Prague Red moved into second position.

 
 
 

Next up was Johns Boys versus Bridge House Badgers. Both teams were on 3 points in joint 3rd with the opportunity to go second with a win. A draw would see them both join DHL Prague Red on 4 points and lead to a really exciting last round of fixtures.

Bridge House Badgers struck first as James Malin put his side 1-0 up. It was a relatively early strike but a strike that earned all three points. Johns Boys were unable to find a successful route to goal and whilst Bridge House Badgers could not add to their lead they had ground out a solid result. It was a result that saw them rise to second place in the table just one point behind the leaders. Johns Boys would sit in 4th place and there hopes of the Cup were over. They still needed a result in the last game to confirm their place in the Plate.

 
 
 

Game 8 saw top versus bottom as Csabagyongye met Dyslexia Untied. You could be forgiven for thinking this result was a foregone conclusion you would have been wrong. Dyslexia Untied pulled out their best performance of the day so far and Matty Horne managed what no-one else had all day score past Marton Beck. It earned them a 1-1 draw at half-time as David Kemeny's goal ensured parity for the league leaders.

In the second half there was to be a winner and it was David Kemeny again who made it 2-1 to the league leaders. It was another 3 points for them as they moved up to 10 points and claimed the Group D title. They were pushed far harder than they could have expected and it was a credit to Dyslexia Untied. Sadly for them though the performance earned no points and they remained in 5th.

 
 
 

Game 9 of Group D was arguably the most crucial fixture. DHL Prague Red met Bridge House Badgers in what was effectively a straight shoot-out to decide who would join Csabagyongye in the Cup. DHL Prague had to win but a draw would be good enough for the Badgers.

At half-time everything was in favour of the Bridge House Badgers as the teams were still locked together at 0-0. Ultimately this game, and Cup qualification, would be decided by one goal. The goal came from the boot of Alex Mitchell, his 4th of the tournament, and with it the 1-0 victory ensured 2 nd place in Group D and safe passage to the Cup.

DHL Prague Red would need to settle for the Plate following 3 Plate finals in 2010, what price another in 2011?

 
 
 

Game 10 was far from academic as Johns Boys met Dyslexia Untied. Johns Boys needed only a point to secure a place in the Plate and a win would see them leapfrog DHL Prague Red into 3rd place. On the other hand, a Dyslexia Untied win by 3 goals would see them move into 4th place and Johns Boys slip into 5th and the Wooden Spoon.

Johns Boys did a lot to help their cause when they took the lead through Daniel Taylor. It was a lead they were to hold until half-time and meant Dyslexia Untied needed to score 4 unanswered goals in the second period to usurp their opponents. For their part, Johns Boys knew that another goal would kill this tie in the context of the group. Daniel Taylor scored his second of the game and the league table was just about set in stone. There was no further scoring, Johns Boys had cemented 3rd place, Dyslexia Untied would play their afternoon football in the Wooden Spoon.
