As we entered the final Round of games it was do or die for the teams in reaching the knock-out stages.

Bulota PK knew their fate would lie in the Cup competition in this afternoon's knock-out phase. They only needed a draw to win Group C but a win would see them finish with a 100% record. In theory they could still drop to second if they lost and Northern Town won but as Bulota PK were +20 and Northern Town FC were +8 it would require a big swing in goal difference.

I Love United & Drinking Shandies could still end up in the Cup, the Plate or the Trophy. A win for them combined with defeat for Northern Town FC could see them climb to 2nd with the requisite swing in goal difference (provided Red Cow Belgrade didn't better their result). Being pessimistic, defeat plus a win for Audley Witney (with the requisite swing in goal difference) could see them drop to fifth and into the Trophy competition. Anything in between and they would play knockout football in the Plate.

Bulota PK were in ruthless form. They already possessed the biggest win of the day (9-0 versus Gdanskschester) and they were to match that here. Goals were spread around the team with Dawid Frost (2), Mateusz Janowski, Lukasz Abryszynski (4) Dominik Mierzwa and Andrzej Mechlinski all boosting their goal stats.

 
 
 

Northern Town FC met Red Cow Belgrade in the penultimate game of Group C. As we ticked off the games things were becoming a little clearer in the table.

At the top, Bulota PK had secured the group win and their place in the Cup. Northern Town FC could join them with a draw or better. The only team that could prevent Northern Town FC going through to the Cup were their opponents, Red Cow Belgrade.

Northern Town FC were currently 3 points ahead so Red Cow Belgrade had to win. Nortern Town FC were +8 in the goal difference stakes, Red Cow Belgrade were +1. Therefore Red Cow Belgrade needed to win by four goals.

Joe Howitt got his team off to the perfect start as Red Cow Belgrade went 1-0 up. Niall Dunning equalized to make it 1-1 to consolidate their position in the league table. Northern Town FC's position strengthened as Campbell McAuley scored twice to make it 3-1. Joe Smith got Red Cow Belgrade back to 3-2 to retain their interest in the game but Cup qualification was almost extinct.

Northern Town FC finished off their Group C campaign with a flourish though as Chris Slevin and Niall Dunning found the net to make it 5-2. Northern Town FC had qualified for the Cup so very well done to them. Red Cow Belgrade would probably go through to the Plate but that was still to be rubber stamped in the final fixture.

 
 
 

That left us with Gdanskchester versus Audley Witney to wrap up Group C.

The game was academic in terms of which tournament Gdanskchester FC would qualify for they would play in the Trophy. A 3 goal win though for the Polish team would see them leapfrog their opponents into fifth place and give them some momentum going into the knockout phase and secure a theoretically easier Quarter-Final draw.

From an Audley Witney perspective there was still a chance they could lift themselves into the Plate. They would need to win this game and win it convincingly to climb above I Love United & Drinking Shandies. They needed a 7 goal victory.

It didn't start well for Audley Witney as they fell behind. Gnilwomin Jachlewski was the man to score Gdanskchester's second goal of the day. They were not ahead for long as Eddie Stevens levelled things up at 1-1. Audley Witney then moved ahead thanks to an Ian Goodwin strike.

Wojciech Sapiotka opened his personal account to make it 2-2 but Audley Witney were soon to be ahead again. Eddie Stevens made it 3-2 but they still couldn't shake off Gdanskchester FC. Tomarz Sarna pulled the local team level at 3-3.

There was still time for a winner and it was Audley Witney who claimed it. Ian Goodwin's second goal of the game was the vital strike. Audley Witney had their second victory of the day. They would finish as one of three teams on 6 points but due to goal difference they would finish in 5 th place in the table.
