CIS Committee were back in action against Fejlodes FC at the start of Round 3. CIS Committee were leading the way in Group B which is perhaps no surprise. They won Group A in the 2014 and 2015 Budapest Fives with a 100% record. Including their two games this morning they had a record in the group phase of the Budapest Fives that read played 11, won 11, scored 31 and conceded just 2. Whichever superlative you wish to use that record was formidable.

So, we wished Fejlodes well against such mighty opposition. The odds were stacked against them but in a year that saw Leicester crowned Premier League champions anything was possible. If 2016 was the year of the underdog then Fejlodes were riding that wave as Michael Gaal's third goal in two games but Fejlodes 1-0 up.

Could they hold on to victory? It would not be easy and in fact CIS Committee were level before half-time. It was Vitali Ledenev who equalised for the Belarussian team. In the second half the comeback was complete when Andrei Lauryk's second goal of the tournament meant it was normal service resumed with CIS Committee 2-1 up.

The game finished 2-1 and CIS Committee chalked up their 12th successive win in the group phase of this tournament. It was a brave effort from Fejlodes but they had nothing to show for their exploits. It was a good performance though.

 
 
 

Athletic Pasty had 1 point from a possible 6 as they went into their third fixture. LMH FC had taken 3 points from their first two games. Both these teams had secured those points in the opening game so were looking to bounce back from defeat here. The game would take us beyond the half-way point of Group B so now was the perfect time for these teams to kickstart their campaign.

Athletic Pasty got off to cracking start in this game and had established a 2-0 lead by half-time. It was Steve Johnstone who set them on their way with the opening goal. Joe Jackson, who now had a goal in each game, then doubled the lead by firing home in off the post.

It got even better for Athletic Pasty after the break as they turned 2-0 into 3-0 with Rob Hewson opening his personal account. It finished 3-0 and Athletic Pasty had 3 points to add to their 3 goals in a result that saw them climb from 5th to 3rd position in the Group B table.

Whilst Athletic Pasty were upwardly mobile, LMH FC passed them going the other way as they slipped to 5th position in the league standings.

 
 
 

Last but not least in Round 3 we had Budapest Celtic Hoops and FC Broxelona B competing on Pitch C. Budapest Celtic Hoops came into the game looking for their first points of the day. FC Broxelona B on the other hand were unbeaten with a win and a draw to their name thus far.

Despite the teams being 5 places apart in the Group B table at kick-off there was little to choose between the two teams on the field of play. We reached the interval with the scorers untroubled, 0-0.

Another half of football and another period of play with the two defences dominating the two teams could not be separated and we had our first goal-less draw of the day. Goalkeepers Bence Szomor (Budapest Celtic Hoops) and Christopher Doyle (FC Broxelona B) both added clean sheets to their collection. For Christopher Doyle it was the second clean sheet in a row.

We added the result to the Group B table that saw FC Broxelona B consolidate 2nd position but had slipped 2 points further behind CIS Committee. The point was a welcome one for Budapest Celtic Hoops but they remained in 6th place.
