JUBI Titans were back in action against Spider Mans & Mighty Falcon at the start of Round 3. JUBI Titans were strongly fancied for the overall title before kick-off but had made a slow start with just 1 point from a possible 6. By their own admissions they had not been on top form and their leading goalscorer from last year had yet to find the net.

For Spider Mans & Mighty Falcon, was this a good time to play JUBI Titans or should they beware of a backlash from the wounded beast? Sadly for the Spider Mans it was the latter. JUBI Titans found their goalscoring touch and it was Barnabas Kantor who was the key to victory. He scored a first half hat-trick which settled this match. His three goals in the first half here equalled his tally from the whole of the 2016 tournament.

In the second half JUBI Titans saw the game out to collect their first three points. The Group B table was looking a lot better for them. It was not good viewing for Spider Mans & Mighty Falcon though who propped up the table in sixth position.

 
 
 

Game 8 of Group B was the biggest game to date with the top two teams coming face to face. It was The Rain Dragons versus Tinniedad & Tobacco. Both teams had a maximum 6 points but The Rain Dragons currently lead the way with a superior goal difference of +5 compared to +3. Both of these teams were yet to concede in the tournament.

Tinniedad & Tobacco had a formidable record in the group phase of our tournaments which now read 13 wins, 2 draws and just 1 defeat with 42 goals scored and just 12 conceded. With a good start here this would be a real test for The Rain Dragons.

The Rain Dragons gave as good as they got and the two teams reached half-time level at 0-0. Could either team find a breakthrough in the second half? The answer was no. The two teams would have to settle for a point and gave a glimmer of hope to those teams chasing behind namely Paralytic Athletic and JUBI Titans.

Group B was shaping up to be a real battle for the Cup qualification places.

 
 
 

With the two results above, Paralytic Athletic would sense an opportunity to close up on the teams at the top. A win would give them a share of the lead on 7 points at the summit of Group B. They were up next against Budapest Celtic Whites.

Budapest Celtic Whites had been goal-less and pointless in their first couple of games but had not been outclassed by any means. A narrow 1-0 defeat and a 2-0 defeat. Their opening games had been against the top two teams at the start of Round 3 so represented a tough start. Despite their league position, Budapest Celtic Whites should not be written off.

Paralytic Athletic needed the win and they were set on their way by Alexander Wood who scored for the second game in a row. The first goal in these games are so crucial as, if you score it, it places all the urgency on the other team. You can then play your own game and look to hit teams on the counter as they come at you. If they are too cautious then you can just retain possession and see the game out for victory.

In this game, the first half goal for Paralytic Athletic proved enough to take all 3 points and earned them a share of the lead at the top of Group B. There were 3 teams all on 7 points and with JUBI Titans lurking just behind it would be a brave man to decide which teams would qualify for the Cup.

For Budapest Celtic Whites it was another narrow defeat having now played all those 3 teams at the top.
