Prague were hoping to build upon their good start
and opening victory against Goldsmith Will iams
who were kicking off for their first game of the
day. DHL Prague must have thought they had a tough
start when they met defending champions Kehar
Club in their first fixture but that would have
been considered a walk in the park after a tough
encounter with Goldsmith Will iams. DHL Prague
were brought down to earth and despite a double
from Tosin Adeogun found themselves on the wrong
end of a 5-2 scoreline. Adam Spicer and Chris
Will iams were both two goal heroes for the English
Prague were on pitch again soon after looking
to bounce back from defeat. In their way stood
Irish team Lucky Leprechauns themselves looking
to avenge defeat having lost against Real Apsley.
The game featured a controversial penalty awarded
to DHL Prague when Lucky Leprechauns keeper Wayne
Lenihan took a goal kick and it struck the hand
of his own defender who had his back to play.
The referee pointed to the spot which was extremely
harsh. The incident did not ultimately prove decisive
though as the Czech team completed a 4-1 victory
thanks to a hat-trick from Gareth Evers and a
first tournament goal from Brian Grabowski. Steve
McNamara from Lucky Leprechans continued his good
form with his second goal in as many games.
Apsley were looking to make it two wins from two
when they met an out of form Kehar Club. Real
Apsley looked like they were going to capitalize
when they were 4-2 up from Lee Carter (2), Gareth
Rigby and an own goal not helping Kehar Club's
cause. The own goal summing up Kehar Club's day
perfectly. Just as in their first game though
Kehar Club showed fighting spirit to comeback.
In their opening game the fightback proved futile.
In this game they got their rewards thanks to
goals from Josef Rakosnik and Petr Kaminski adding
to Petr Pergler's earlier double. The final score
was 4-4 which was good enough to see Real Apsley
into second place whilst Kehar Club were off the
bottom and up to fifth.
