It was 2nd versus 3rd at the start of Round 3 with a Hungarian derby Budapest Celtic Tigers taking on Stani's Mates. For the winners there was a chance of outright top and for the losers it would be lost ground on a close rival. A draw would not be the worst result but would involve the teams treading water and giving opportunities to the other teams in Group A.

 

It was advantage to the Tigers first off when Bruno gave them the lead. They were on their way to another victory and as the Tigers were yet to concede on the day thus far it was going to be difficult for Stanis Mates to get back into it.

 

With the game delicately poised the next goal was always going to be crucial but the goal never came and it was Budapest Celtic Tigers who claimed all 3 points. They now sat on 9 with a 3 point lead over their nearest rivals (albeit having played a game extra at this stage). Stanis Mates would remain in 3rd place and Cup qualification still very much a possibility.

 
 
 

Ujpest RK were next on the fixture list and no sign I think it is fair to say we'd given up on them for the day now. It was the turn of DYDDFC to collect the 3-0 win and they were solidly placed in mid-table with two games to go.

 
 
 

To complete Round 3 was ABC United versus Aston Carter FC. The Romanian team had looked hugely impressive when they picked up their first victory and would no doubt be favourites to make it two out of two and get some momentum going. Aston Carter FC were still looking for their first points but were no pushovers with their defeats narrow ones.

 

Aston Carter FC played hugely well in this one and were very much in the game throughout. They defended well and whilst ABC United had much of the possession the English team was looking dangerous especially in the air.

 

ABC United took a first-half lead through Mihai Mihalache which gave them a slim lead at the break. They could never quite get the cushion of the second goal but managed to keep the opposition out at the back and therefore made it 3 wins out of 3. Aston Carter remained down in 5th and in need of their luck to change.
