was still a twist in the tale in terms of who
would pick-up the runners-up medals. It had been
assumed that Apsley House versus the Happy Union
effectively was a final and the losers would be
runners-up. CEPL had not read the script though.
were beating Bozeat All Stars to put them level
on 4 points with The Happy Union but due to the
heavy nature of defeat against Apsley House goal
difference was always in favour of the Happy Union.
However, CEPL were banging in the goals for fun
against a tiring Bozeat All Stars. They needed
a 7-goal swing in goal difference on the round
and were 2-0 up at half-time courtesy of two goals
from Matthew Morgan. When Dan Bayes pulled it
back to 2-1 you could be forgiven for thinking
that was that. But it wasn't. Morgan made it 3-1
before Rakesh Dewoe made it 4-1 and then 5-1.
With The Happy Union 2-0 down we already had a
6-goal swing. Could CEPL do it?
bet they could and what a valuable goal it was.
Matthew Morgan scored his fourth of the game to
make it 6-1, claim second place for his team and
therefore the runners-up medals plus secure the
Top Goalscorer prize for himself by beating team-mate
Rakesh Dewoe by one goal. Even now, we are not
sure that CEPL realized what they had achieved.
They claimed the Runners-Up prize courtesy of
goals scored. It was a sensational finish and
we have to say unlucky to The Happy Union who
only lost one game all day and slipped into 3rd
place in the final minutes of the day.
