Round 3 started with DHL Prague taking on Nowa Huta Team. It was a team with a 100% winning record against a team who had just picked up their first win of the day.

 

After two games DHL Prague were absolutely flying with 2 wins, 8 goals scored and just the 1 conceded. They looked well on the way to a third successive Cup qualification (despite a heavy pre-tournament Friday night). Nowa Huta Team were growing in the tournament and having lost their first game 5-1 and picked up a 3-1 win versus Odmienowie FC a team that DHL Prague defeated 4-1.

 

Nowa Huta Team were a changed team in this game and they really moved through the gears. Karol Rzepecki opened the scoring before Janczy made it 2-0 and Rzepecki doubled his personal tally to make it 3-0. It was still only half-time.

 

It was a big blow for DHL Prague who had started so well but were powerless to prevent the Nowa Huta Team onslaught. After the break Grzegorz Stochman made it 4-0 before Karol Rzepecki bagged his hat-trick. It was a stunning result for Nowa Huta Team who would move level with DHL Prague on 6 points.

 
 
 

Fleet Street Elite A and Spider Mans & Eagle was the next big kick-off on Pitch C. Fleet Street Elite A were without a win and looking for their first goal of the tournament. They would hardly have been thrilled to see that their opposition had won both their games with an aggregate score of 6-1.

 

That said, DHL Prague entered their third game with a similarly good record and were turned over. Spider Mans & Eagle never looked like they were going to suffer the same fate. The men in black quickly established a 2-0 half-time lead.

 

Fleet Street Elite A had an uphill task at kick-off but they now had a mountain climb and that mountain was getting more and more difficult to scale with every goal that Spider Mans & Eagle scored. To be honest, there was some heroic defending from Fleet Street Elite A with defenders stopping the ball on the line twice, getting hit in the face to block goalbound shots and the goalkeeper made some good saves. Still, the Spider Mans & Eagle juggernaut rolled on and made it a 5-0 winning scoreline.

 

There was a hat-trick for Nick McIntosh to add to his brace in the first game an early contender for the top goalscorer prize. There was also a double for Paul Williams.

 

Spider Mans & Eagle led the way in Group C.

 
 
 

Odmienowie FC and 9 Nana Budds would meet in game 9 of Group C in an all-English contest. Odmienowie FC were looking for their first win of the day. 9 Nana Budds had 1 win and 1 defeat to their name thus far.

 

9 Nana Budds had started Round 3 in 3rd place but Nowa Huta's win had seen them slip to fourth so they really needed a win to keep up with the pace at the top. If they could secure victory then they would be 1 of 3 teams in joint second position on 6 points.

 

It started well for the men in Harchester United shirts as Will Crowther and Paul Taylor fired them into a 2-0 first half lead. We'd mentioned in Round 2 that a solid defence had been the bedrock of 9 Nana Budds past success so Odmienowie FC would have to work hard to get back into this one.

 

Odmienowie FC had scored in both their previous games so they had some hope but the 9 Nana Budds defence held firm and there was to be no addition to the score in the second half. 9 Nana Budds had their second clean sheet of the morning and their second victory.
