touched upon earlier, Skidmarks were making
their third appearance in Mallorca. They were
aiming to make it 3 tournament wins out of 3
and add to their trophy collection. On debut
they claimed the 2011 Valencia Fives title and
followed this up with victory in the 2012 Krakow
was a steady start with opening game draw but
now they were looking for their first win in
Mallorca to kickstart their challenge. In their
way stood Son Gual who also opened up with a
point in their first game.
Gual proved a tough test for Skidmarks as they
had done with Policia Mallorca but their defence
was breached for the first time today by Neil
Taylor. It was a goal that was to give his side
a 1-0 lead at the break.
solid and competitive as Son Gual had been today
they were yet to find the back of the opposition
net. They took the game to Skidmarks but had
no joy against a good goalkeeper and well organised
defence. Skidmarks didn't add to their 1-0 lead
but I'm sure that was not too much of a worry
as they secured their first win of the day and
all 3 points to join Grant Thornton at the top.
