was now time for the biggest game so far in
Group A with the two teams at the top meeting
in direct competition. It was Bar Maruru versus
Ben. Both teams boasted a 100% record with the
maximum 9 points. For one, or both, of these
teams that record would end here.
promised to be a great encounter with the teams
scoring 13 goals between them. On the other
hand, both teams were yet to concede a goal.
So, would we get a free-scoring game or two
teams shutting the other out. A win for either
team would guarantee Cup qualification. A draw
would push them both closer but with work to
do. Should it be a draw then Bar Maruru would
retain first place on goal difference.
Maruru had that larger goal difference primarily
due to their thumping 5-0 win over Urban Sport
last time out. The goals continued to flow for
the Spanish side into this fixture as Vicens
Matas and Toni Torres both found the back of
the net. Ben's hitherto perfect defensive record
was over. Bar Maruru's was still in tact as
they lead 2-0 at half-time.
got back into it in the second period as they
reduced the deficit to 2-1 and also ending Bar
Maruru's perfect defensive record. Bar Maruru
had enough left in the tank to get over the
line. The game finished 2-1 and Bar Maruru lead
the way in Group A.
