FC entered Round 5 knowing that a win combined
with Fejlodes failing to win would see them
jump into the Plate qualification places. Budapest
Celtic Hoops could also reach the Plate with
a win but they needed Fejlodes to lose and to
overturn goal difference in the process. Budapest
Celtic Hoops were currently -3 and Fejlodes
were -1 so it was distinctly possible.
looked good early on for Budapest Celtic Hoops
but not so great for LMH FC when Jonny Bennett
put Budapest Celtic Hoops ahead. Due to “goals
scored” they really needed another or for Fejlodes
to lose by 2 (or more) to make the Plate. Their
immediate task though was to ensure they won
the game and worry about goal difference later.
became less likely when Simon Lewis equalized
for LMH FC. The 1-1 draw suited neither team
as it would ensure both teams would be eliminated.
Well, LMH FC could still go through but it would
require Fejlodes to lose by 7 in their final
game. Could either team find a winner?
short answer to that was no. Time ran out and
both teams would have to settle for a point.
The result confirmed the end of the day for
LMH FC and Budapest Celtic Hoops. Thank you
for participating in the 2016 Budapest Fives
and we look forward to seeing you on tour in
