The 2017 Budapest Fives Wooden Spoon Final was the battle for 17th position, a consolation prize and one last game to enjoy on these team's Budapest tour.


The game would be contested by Maverick FC and Spider Mans & Mighty Falcon. Maverick FC came into the game as the 17th ranked team courtesy of their higher points tally in the group phase. Both teams had found hitting the target difficult this morning with a goal between them (scored by Mavericks). Mavericks also boasted the stronger defensive record with 9 goals conceded compared to the 14 by Spider Mans & Mighty Falcon.


Mavericks won the Wooden Spoon at the 2016 Krakow Trophy and with the superior record here you fancied they might take the Wooden Spoon here in Budapest too. Spider Mans & Mighty Falcon had not read the script though. Seb Dunnett scored his team's first goal and what a time to get it. Could it bring them some 11th hour glory?


They did not hold the lead for long as Will Gubbins equalized before half-time. It meant the teams changed ends level again at 1-1. Maverick FC won the Wooden Spoon in Krakow relatively comfortably although the game finished 5-3. This was a closer contest and in the second half just one goal would win it.


Alex Pyke scored Mavericks goal in the group phase and he doubled his tally and gave his team a 2-1 lead in this Final. Ultimately the goal proved enough to win the Wooden Spoon as Spider Man & Mighty Falcon were unable to get back on level terms.


Congratulations to Maverick FC who finished the day how they would've liked to have started it and they took the Wooden Spoon prize. Our commiserations to Spider Mans & Mighty Falcon who we trust had a great day at the Budapest Fives and also a great weekend in the Hungarian capital despite results not exactly going their way.
