At the start of Round 3, we had FC Broxelona B versus Brioche FS. FC Broxelona B (Eng) had been great for the pools coupon with two 1-1 draws to their name. These weregames they felt they should have won but couldn't find the cutting edge to eek out the victories. If they could win this fixture, though, they would be heading to the top of the table albeit with the teams currently above them having a game in hand.

Brioche FS had suffered defeat in Round 1 but had bounced back in style in Round 2 with a 4-0 win. Could they carry that momentum into this game and secure a win that would put them top of the table. We reached half-time with the scores still locked at 0-0. A draw would not be the worst result in the world for Brioche FS as it would consolidate third position but they would lose ground on the top two. For Broxelona B it would show remarkable consistency but it was three points they needed to avoid the teams at the top stretching the lead.

Whilst the first half had ended goal-less, the second half would not. There would be just the one goal to decide this fixture and it would come from the Spanish team. Cometh the hour, cometh the man and that man was Ilyas Mjakker Fuster with his third goal of the tournament.

 
 
 

Next up we had FC De Rimmer versus FC Maroon. At the start of Round 3 these teams were 5th and 2nd place in the table respectively and both needed the points, for different reasons, to help propel them up Group A.

If FC Maroon could claim victory they would open up a three point gap over KML and put the pressure on their Group A title rivals who were up next. This was the second game in a row that FC Maroon had faced Dutch opposition. It was 0-0 last time, could they go one step further here?

The league table would suggest they could and the fact they KML (who they drew 0-0 against) had beaten FC De Rimmer, 3-0, would also point to the fact that FC Maroon were favourites for this one. Matt Alawi delivered with the goal that put his team 1-0 up. This is how it stayed until half-time.

FC Maroon did not have it all their own way as FC De Rimmer remained competitive throughout. At 1-0 FC Maroon were never quite safe but they had put on a strong defensive showing so far. This continued and ensured the 3 points would go to FC Maroon. Ed Brangwin in the FC Maroon goal kept his third clean sheet off the tournament. They were on a roll.

FC De Rimmer had two games left to make their mark in Group A.
 
 
 

It was top versus bottom in Game 9 of Group A. KML needed a win to re-join FC Maroon at the summit of the group table and they would be confident going into the game as they remained unbeaten.

Ze'Argon had taken a draw from their first game but a heavy defeat in Round 2 would be a blow to their confidence. However, if they could take points off the team at the top that would surely be a boost to regain that confidence as they embarked on the latter phase of the group.

It was not going to be easy for Ze'Argon and their task became more difficult when KML hit the front Brian Vreugdenhil with the goal. If Ze'Argon had an uphill task at the start of the game they now had a mountain to climb as Brian Vreugdenhil made it 2-0. It was a goal in each half for the Dutchman that ultimately secured the win for KML.

KML had matched FC Maroon and those two teams remained the top two at the end of Round 3. KML continued to lead the way via goal difference.
