the next game we had PMPCAR who were currently
top of the table and the only team to produce
a victory so far in Group A. They were due to
face Wessex FC who had claimed a draw from their
made their debut in September's 2017 Lisbon
Tournament. In their 8-team group they won 3,
drew 1 and lost 3 of their group games. Their
haul of 10 points left them in fifth position
but a level goal difference showed they were
competitive throughout. They qualified for the
Plate and picked up a 3-0 win over Tommie's
Guns in the Quarter-Finals. In the Semi-Finals
they drew 2-2 with AAK S&S but went out
on penalties (4-3).
in 2018, PMPCAR continued their winning run
at the start of the tournament. They lead 2-1
through Tiago Fernandes and Paulo Tavares in
reply to Bilal Salouache's goal for Wessex FC.
Just before half-time Paulo Tavares gave the
home team a cushion of a vital 2-0 lead.
the second half Wessex FC were right back in
it as Sana Najmaddin reduced the deficit to
3-2. Pedro Domingos (a.k.a Tranquilo) restored
the two goal lead and sealed the 4-2 win.
