second Quarter-Final saw Frank Hirth B take
on Saga Louts. Frank Hirth B had performed well
in a difficult group this morning. They lost
just the once and were leading Group C until
the final round of fixtures. They would come
into the Plate as one of the teams to watch.
Louts had plenty of experience at Plate level
and reached the 2013 Krakow Trophy Final. They
were so close to clinching the title only missing
out via a penalty shoot-out. This was the third
season in a row Saga Louts had made the Plate
Quarter-Finals. At the 2013 Krakow Trophy they
won 3-0 over Budapest Celtic Tigers but at the
2014 Bratislava Fives they lost 4-0 to local
side GSF Drunkerz. Looking at Saga Louts (and
their Bure Park Old Boys sister squads) they
had an overall record of 3 wins and 3 defeats
at this stage (one defeat was technically a
draw with a loss on penalties).
for the Saga Louts, Frank Hirth B continued
where GSF Drunkerz left off in Bratislava at
this stage. Frank Hirth B raced into a 3-0 lead
by half-time. Nick Wastell set them on their
way before John Sneddon and Steven Cameron put
them in command. After the break Matt Limb and
Ross Annand scored to wrap up a 5-0 win.
Annand's goal was remarkable for two reasons
– not only was it celebrated in style with a
Bafetimbi Gomis celebration but it also meant
that all 7 members of the squad had scored today.
