Iacta Est (Pol) made a strong debut in our tournaments
when they competed at the 2018 Gdansk Tournament.
They began with a 2-2 draw against FC Foreigntina
before claiming their first win (3-2) over Spider
Mans & Eagle. Two more wins followed, both
1-0, over England's FC Dad and Ireland's Hotpockets.
They completed the group phase with a 1-1 draw
against Freshers FC that saw them finish second
in the table on goal difference. They qualified
for the Cup but went out 2-0 to Bulota PK at the
were on 6 points so far with a chance to open
up a 3 point lead at the top. They were up against
Dragon Balls who featured one of their players
from last year, Kuba Dubrowski. Would this be
a grudge match? This was a derby between two teams
in the tournament who had travelled from Warsaw
to be here today.
Balls had 1 win from 1 game so far and they were
on the winning trail again when Maciek Ciaputa
scored for the second game running. Piotr Malenczak
also scored for the second game running as he
equalized for Alea Iacta Est. The game looked
to be heading for a 1-1 draw but right at the
end Pawel Zabielski struck a golden goal. His
strike meant Dragon Balls took a 2-1 lead just
before the final whistle. What an end to the game.
8 of Group A was TS Marpoli versus Rain Dragons.
We added the 3-0 walkover to the table which
meant Rain Dragons were now one of 4 teams on
6 points at the top of Group A.
complete Round 3 was Pink Lloyd A versus RAF Boulmer
B. RAF Boulmer B were one of those four teams
locked on 6 points at the top of the table. A
win here and they could open up a healthy 3 point
cushion in pole position. They would no doubt
fancy their chances against a Pink Lloyd A team
who had been on the wrong end of a big result
last time out.
Lloyd had so far lost 3-0 and 8-0. If they were
to concede first here it could well be demoralizing.
RAF Boulmer B did indeed claim the opening goal
of the contest as Reece Younie scored his first
of the day. RAF Boulmer B won 4-1 in their first
game against TaHU but they were shortly to eclipse
that as Sam Dawson, Ashley Lally, Liam Parkin,
Sam Dawson again and Luke Evans all found a successful
route to goal.
6-0 win meant that not only did RAF Boulmer B
go top but they also boasted the healthiest goal
difference in Group A. Things were looking good
Pink Lloyd A there was still time to turn their
fortunes around. Heads up lads.
