FC had a game in hand on their opposition so far
and that game in hand was now on Pitch B versus
Taylor's Tigers. Kazbar had played the top two
teams to date and would now target some points
in their final fixtures to get some momentum into
their tournament challenge.
Taylor's Tigers, it was their last group game
and they knew it was their last chance to get
some points on the board. A draw or a win would
give them an opportunity to make the Plate at
the expense of their opponents in this game.
was a very closely matched contest and the two
teams entered half-time all level at 0-0. Could
someone step up and take all three points as a
draw, whilst clearly better than a loss, was not
a great help in the context of the group table.
Tigers needed the win more due to their inferior
goal difference but they were not to get it as
John Warin scored the only goal of the game to
score his team's first goal of the tournament
and, with it, win all 3 points.
Tigers group campaign was over and they would
be playing in the Wooden Spoon competition this
