8 saw JNJ Russia A took on JNJ High Wycombe
B. This was a big game for JNJ Russia A. In
Prague 2012 they won all 5 group games, in Budapest
2013 they won all 5 group games and after an
opening victory here in Bratislava they had
just tasted their first defeat in the group
phase of a JNJ Euro Soccer Tournament – how
would they respond?
High Wycombe B would surely not have wanted
this fixture as they faced a potential backlash
from JNJ Russia A. This was hardly the ideal
game to try and secure your first points of
the day. This was especially true given the
fact that in this same fixture last year JNJ
Russia A emerged as 5-0 winners.
pattern of the game followed that of the Budapest
2013 fixture as JNJ Russia established a 2-0
lead at the break thanks to Stanislav Martynov
and Vladimir Doroshenkov. The second half was
more even but the damage had been done in the
opening period as the game finished 2-0.
Russia A's challenge was back on track as they
moved to within a point of 1 st place and shared
2nd position in the table. For JNJ High Wycombe
B it was a third defeat on the day.
