up was a crucial game in the middle of the table
of Group B as we had the teams currently occupying
3rd and 4th coming face to face. A win for either
would see them surge up the table into second
place. A draw or defeat would see them stay
mid-table with much work to do going into the
last round of games.
High Wycombe A came into the game unbeaten but
a point behind their opponents. They had drawn
their first two and just claimed their first
victory which could well be the catalyst to
see them kick-on in this tournament.
two teams had met at the start of Group B at
the 2014 JNJ Euro Soccer Tournament in Bratislava
and on that occasion JNJ High Wycombe A had
won 4-1. De Puy Synthes 2 were an improved side
from 12 months ago though – they were without
a win last year and already had 2 in 3 games
today. As if to prove that point it was a very
close opening half and JNJ High Wycombe A edged
it 2-1. Nicki Mills continued his fine run of
form in front of goal to get the first for his
team and he had scored all his team's goals
thus far. Alex Woodger helped him out by getting
his team's second as they outscored Dalian Cash's
goal for De Puy Synthes 2 in the opening period.
High Wycombe A eased away from their opponents
in the second half. Alex Woodger scored his
16th goal in eurofootballfives.com competition
to make it 3-1 – following this game he had
now scored in all four years of the tournament.
Rob Buckland then put the icing on a 4-1 cake.
A repeat of the score from 12 months ago. JNJ
High Wycombe A were peaking at the right time
going into the business end of Group B.
