Radio Taxi Barbakan losing two successive games
their confidence was shattered. They must have
though they were on the way out so they requested
to play their final group game in the lunch break
for an early finish. Their opposition and referee
agreed so it was game on. Maybe their feelings
were right as they ran into an unstoppable Wola
side. Wola brought a 100% record into the game
and there was not even a hint that this record
would be in danger. Tomasz Gorowski helped himself
to 5 goals for the second game of the tournament,
Tomasz Ziecik hit two and Marek Maksel all put
the boot in. Barbakan did achieve what no other
team had done to date and that was beat Grzegorz
Stanek in the Wola goal. Lzerwiecz scoring for
Barbakan. Final score, 8-1.
Dorchmen picked up their 3 walkover points to
double their points tally from 3 to 6 putting
them in a healthy 3rd position. How difference
this looked from their predicament after the opening
Prague Red then met the dispirited Barbakan team.
Maybe it was the belief they were already out
(which they were not) that inspired Barbakan to
play without pressure but they turned in their
best performance of the day against the Czech
team who were looking to stake a claim for their
place in the Plate.
Prague Red, try as they did, could not find a
route to goal as Zbigniev Wiercinski in the Barbakan
goal claimed his first clean sheet of the tournament.
Romek Piszczek opened the scoring for Barbakan,
followed by goals from Lzerwiec and Zbigniev Maciasz.
The Polish team beating their fellow Central European
opposition by a scoreline of 3-0. It was now distinctly
possible for Barbakan to qualify subject to DHL
Prague Red's game in hand.
