game had much more in keeping with the pre-2014
Trophy Finals and was a close contest. Red Cow
Belgrade had already played Frank Hirth B today
and on that occasion they were level 1-1 at
half-time. They also found themselves level
at 1-1 with the A team in this match. Daz Bray
scored for the third game in a row for Red Cow
Belgrade whilst John Bull scored the goal for
Frank Hirth A.
Frank Hirth B, Red Cow Belgrade conceded in
the second half to lose 2-1 and would hope to
avoid a repeat against the A team. The second
half passed without further addition to the
score and a penalty shoot-out would be required
to decide this game. It would be the third time
a Trophy Final had required a penalty shoot-out.
Cow Belgrade had already been involved in a
penalty shoot-out today (obviously to be here
they were successful). They were also involved
in a shoot-out in the 2014 Barcelona Fives Plate
Semi-Final which was also successful. A hat-trick
of penalty shoot-out successes would see them
Hirth A were yet to play in a eurofootballfives.com
penalty shoot-out but they had just seen their
B team qualify for the Plate Final courtesy
of penalties so if they could emulate their
team-mates they would be collecting the Trophy
in this evening's presentation.
Hirth A would take the first penalty and it
was Mark Funnell who stepped forward and powered
his side into a 1-0 lead. Kevin Roome stepped
up first in Red Cow Belgrade's Quarter-Final
shoot-out and he took responsibility again with
the same result – he scored, 1-1.
Klingenspor had 4 goals in the tournament and
he was up next – the net bulged for the fifth
time today and Frank Hirth A lead 2-1. Daz Bray
was the fourth man to walk up to the penalty
spot and he smashed his kick down the middle
and CJ Walford made the save to put his team
within one penalty of glory. John Bull made
his way to the penalty spot. He scored the goal
in normal time and he followed this up with
a successful penalty to seal the shoot-out 3-1.
commiserations go to Red Cow Belgrade who gave
it a real go and went on to collect Runners
Up medals. We look forward to seeing them return
to action in the future and maybe the medals
they pick up will be of the winning variety
– third time lucky.
today though, we present you the 2015 Lisbon
Tournament Trophy Winners– many congratulations
to Frank Hirth A.
