Iacta Est had their work cut out if they wanted
to reach the Cup for the second time in as many
tournaments. This was a must win game for them.
They were currently 4 points behind their opponents
at kick off with just one further round of fixtures
Dragons were currently enjoying their strongest
tournament since the campaigns of the 2014 Amsterdam
Fives where their two teams finished 2nd and
3rd (both qualified for the Cup) and the 2015
Amsterdam Fives where they also finished second
and qualified for the Cup. Unbeaten in 8 games
in our tournaments they looked set to make the
Cup again. However….
Iacta Est had other ideas. They had already
won 8-0 earlier in the day but this result was
arguably their best to date. The Polish team
took the lead through Pedro Silveira. 1-0 became
2-0 thanks to Artur Aksamit which then became
3-0 thanks to Pawel Kowalczyk. Will Watkins
was then unfortunate as he chased back to help
his defence only to see a cross ricochet off
him into the net for 4-0. We finished as we
started with a Pedro Silveira goal and the game
ended 5-0 to Alea Iacta Est.
was a striking result, Rain Dragons retained
second position but Alea Iacta Est were now
just a point behind them.
