At the start of Round 3, we had Cilag Team 2 versus GBS Reds A. The teams currently sat in third and fifth position respectively. Cilag Team 2 would come into the game on a high having registered not only their first win but a thumping 7-1 victory also. GBS Reds A could also come into the game with confidence having drawn 2-2 with last year's runners-up.

On the pitch it was GBS Reds A who drew first blood. Petr Mizera claimed his first goal of the tournament in the opening period and it was a lead GBS Reds A were to take into half-time. They had lead 2-1 at half-time in the previous game but drew could they kick on to win this one?

They could. Not only did they hold on to the lead but they extended it through Vincent Solem. At 2-0 there was no way back for Cilag Team 2 and they slipped to their second defeat of the day. GBS Reds A were really growing into the tournament and their results were on an upward trajectory loss, draw, win.

 
 
 

Next up we had Leeds Two versus JNJ Turkey. At the start of Round 3 these teams were 4th and 6th in the table and both needed the points to help propel them up Group A.

Leeds Two came into the game looking for their first points and first win of the day. In their last outing they had scored their first goal of the day and in the first half here they were to score their second through Thomas Lloyd. Defending had been Leeds Two Achilles' heel so far today and so it proved to be again in this game. They conceded 5 first half goals to Cilag Team 2 and were to do the same here against JNJ Turkey.

In fact there were to be more parallels with the last game as two second half goals for the opposition meant Leeds Two slipped to their successive 7-1 defeat. Who said 7 was a lucky number?

JNJ Turkey enjoyed themselves in front of goal as Edip Efe scored a hat-trick, Murat Dilgin scored twice plus there were goals from Senol Kalebasi and Ozgur Baslilar. It was their second win of the day and they moved up to second in the table.

 
 
 

It was the top two at the start of Round 3 who met head to head on Pitch C. It was the biggest game of Group A to date and would be contested by De Puy Synthes 1 and GTSC. Both teams were undefeated with GTSC possessing a 100% record and De Puy Synthes 1 taking 4 points from a possible 6 so far.

 

GTSC were yet to concede a goal in the tournament but that was to change in the opening period and the goal came from an unusual source the opposing goalkeeper. Neil Howard was the man who broke the deadlock to give De Puy Synthes 1 a crucial lead.

 

In the second half De Puy Synthes 1 extended their lead to 2-0 when Liam Robinson found the back of the net. Liam Robinson was a new name on the team-sheet from last year and was proving to be a great addition scoring his fifth goal in three games.

 

The 2-0 victory was just what De Puy Synthes needed. It meant that at the end of Round 3 they would lead the way in Group A. Whilst clearly a set-back for GTSC they were still only 1 point off top and two good results in their final fixtures would still see them through to the elite Cup competition.
