the game underway it was Racing Literki FC who
took an early lead and it was their top goalscorer
on the day Michal Przybylski who scored it.
It took his tally to 6 goals for the tournament
– a fine return. With the goal advantage Racing
Literki FC looked content to pass the ball around,
take the urgency out of the game and wait for
the opportunities to come to them. They looked
comfortable as they went into half-time still
second half kicked off in much the same way
but as the game progressed Budapest Celtic Greens
stepped it up. They gradually wrestled control
of the game and were on the front foot for most
of the half. Racing Literki FC defended well
and when Budapest Celtic Greens did find a path
to goal Bartlomiej Jedrysiak stood in their
way. The Polish goalkeeper for the Spanish team
had a superb game and made some excellent stops.
There was one save in particular, diving high
and to his left to push out a Joe McCann shot
that was curling into the top corner.
time ran out for Budapest Celtic Greens and
Racing Literki FC had done it – they would be
the Plate champions of the 2017 Budapest Fives.
Given their record on the day overall you have
to admit they deserved it but they were run
close at the end.
like to thank Budapest Celtic Greens for attending
and offer our commiserations for the Final.
Budapest Celtic still had an active role in
this tournament though as the Hoops squad were
about to take the field for the Cup Final.
