FC entered the penultimate fixture of Group
B knowing a defeat would condemn them to the
Wooden Spoon playoff. A draw or win might just
save the day as the other 6th placed teams were
on 0 points but it would depend upon results
in Groups A and C.
Jozef could make it a three-team tie on 12 points
at the top of Group B and they could even win
the group although they would need to win by
7 to overtake Tinniedad & Tobacco on goal
the early exchanges Cudny Jozef were on course
for a win but not for the emphatic win that
would see them Group B winners. They lead 2-1
thanks to goals from Anton Kut and Ian Corkill.
Sean Barwick scored a sublime goal for Maverick
FC to keep it close.
the break it looked like Cudny Jozef were really
going for the group win. They were looking determined
and opened up a 5-1 win (further goals from
Kut to complete a hat-trick and Ian Corkill).
They still needed 3 more but their hopes were
dashed when Sean Barwick made it 5-2. Not only
did it mean Cudny Jozef needed 4 but it took
the sting and momentum out of the chase – plus,
time was running out.
game finished 5-2 and Cudny Jozef can consider
themselves very unlucky to finish with 12 points
but finish 3 rd (on goal difference).
