The start of Round 3 saw the biggest fixture in Group B to date. The top two teams would meet face-to-face. It was the unbeaten Los Froggies Del Patron against the 100% record of Malo Guerreros. One of those records would be extinguished at the end of this tie.

Things could not have gone much better for Malo Guerreros so far with 2 wins out of 2 and yet to concede in the tournament. That record would be severely tested in this game but they got off to an absolute flyer. Lee Liquorish scored early with his third goal in two games and put Malo Guerreros into the ascendency.

There was still plenty of time for Los Froggies Del Patron to get back into this but they would have to do what no team had done so far and score past Matt Beacroft in the Malo Guerreros goal. The French were unable to do so and the teams changed ends with the English team looking on course to keep that 100% record.

Los Froggies Del Patron were playing well though and taking the game to their opponents. They were throwing everything at the English but just couldn't apply that finishing touch. In the end, time and Malo Guerreros's defence defeated them.

That early Lee Liquorish goal was enough to open up a 5 point lead at the top for Malo Guerreros (albeit they had played an extra game than some of their rivals).
