In the final round of fixtures in the Krakow Trophy tournament, Alea Iacta Est from Poland faced off against TaHu from Finland in a match with significant implications for Plate qualification. Alea Iacta Est were 3 points behind Krwiodawcow Cracovii and needed to hope the team above them would lose their final game. If they did a win would be enough for Alea Iacta Est to qualify on goal difference. TaHu knew this game would be their last but they were hoping to go out on a high and perhaps leapfrog their opponents in the process.

Alea Iacta Est were determined to stake their claim for a spot in the Plate competition, and they did so in emphatic fashion. The Polish team delivered an outstanding performance, saving their best for last as they secured a resounding 5-0 victory.

The first half belonged to Alea Iacta Est, as they surged to a 3-0 lead by halftime. Michal Sklodowski, Pedro Silveira, and Rafal Krukowski were the goal scorers, and their clinical finishing put TaHu on the back foot.

As the second half kicked off, Alea Iacta Est showed no signs of slowing down. Piotr Malenczak and Jakub Szlezingier added two more goals to seal the 5-0 win, capping off a dominant performance.

With this impressive victory, Alea Iacta Est staked their claim for a place in the Plate competition but would need to wait for the result of Krwiodawcow Cracovii's final game. For TaHu, the tournament was over but they were a delight to host again playing the game in the perfect spirit.

 
 
 

In a crucial and tense encounter, Krwiodawcow Cracovii faced Skidmarks in a match with significant implications for both teams' qualification hopes in the Krakow Trophy tournament.

Krwiodawcow Cracovii entered the game knowing that a draw would secure their place in the Plate competition. Skidmarks would ensure Cup qualification for the 10th time in 12 tournaments with a win this might even win them the group should Colonel Getafe lose. A draw or defeat would be enough for Skidmarks should Moles Salah lose their final game. If Skidmarks lost and Moles Salah drew it would come down to goal difference for the final Cup spot which currently favoured Skidmarks.

The match took an unexpected turn as Krwiodawcow Cracovii took a surprise lead. Ian Corkill headed in a beautifully delivered corner, giving his team a 1-0 advantage. Things went from bad to worse for Skidmarks when Baran Arikan scored on the break, extending Krwiodawcow Cracovii's lead to 2-0. Skidmarks faced an uphill battle as they entered halftime following a sluggish first-half performance.

With just two minutes left on the clock, a shock result was still on the cards. Skidmarks' Luke Hatfield scored, setting up a thrilling finale to the match. The tension was palpable as both teams fought for their qualification hopes.

In dramatic fashion, Ashley Britten found the back of the net with virtually the last kick of the game, equalizing for Skidmarks. The match ended in a 2-2 draw, allowing both teams to secure their qualification spots. Krwiodawcow Cracovii advanced to the Plate competition, while Skidmarks earned their place in the Cup (as news from Pitch C filtered through).

 
 
 

To wrap up Group A, in a highly anticipated clash between Moles Salah and Colonel Getafe, we had both teams vying for supremacy and qualification to the Cup competition.

Before kick-off, Moles Salah knew they had to win to realistically qualify for the Cup. If they did, and Skidmarks failed to win their last game, they could even qualify as Group A winners. Colonel Getafe had to avoid defeat and equal (or better) Skidmarks result to progress to the knockout phase as Group A victors.

The first half of the game saw Colonel Getafe take the lead, with Ben Watson scoring to put his team ahead 1-0. The early goal gave Colonel Getafe a crucial advantage.

As the second half began, Colonel Getafe continued to press forward, and their relentless attack was rewarded with two more goals, both courtesy of Oli Grossman. Grossman's double increased his goal tally for the tournament to nine, solidifying his position as the top scorer.

With Colonel Getafe leading 3-0, it seemed that they were in control of the match. However, Moles Salah was determined to mount a comeback, and they managed to reduce the arrears to 3-1 thanks to Henry Myers fourth goal of the day. Despite Moles Salah's efforts, Colonel Getafe's lead proved insurmountable. The match ended with a final score of 3-1.

This important victory allowed Colonel Getafe to secure their place in the Cup competition and were just two matches from the title. Moles Salah, although facing defeat in this game, had performed well in the group stage to qualify for the Plate with realistic hopes of winning it.
