final team to get underway were the familiar faces
of Kehar Club competing
in their fourth eurofootballfives.com tournament.
The big question for all is which Kehar Club would
turn up? Would it be the same team that had lifted
the 2007 Prague Masters and come so close in the
2008 Prague Trophy where they finished runners-up?
Or, would it be the team that finished 6 th (out
of 6) in their group in the 2008 Prague Masters?
would have to wait and see as they took on South
Leam FC who were full of confidence after
their opening game victory. What followed was
a cracking game of football. A game that was full
of action and full of goals – 9 of them in fact.
Four times the ball found the net in the first
half with Kehar Club the main beneficiaries thanks
to a double from Josef Rakosnik and one from Jan
Sekerka. Ryan Parisi's third of the tournament
kept them in touch at 3-1. South Leam FC won the
second half but it was not quite enough to rescue
the game for them. Goals from Parisi (again),
Adam Johnson and Matt Florida saw them take the
second half 3-2 (Josef Rakosnik and Pavel Trminek
for Kehar Club). South Leam FC ultimately fell
one goal short as Kehar Club ran out 5-4 winners.
The Czech team looked to have brought their ‘A
game' to the 2009 Prague Masters.
4 in Group B saw two teams looking to avenge opening
game defeats as Real Sociable
Lads took on Hays.
In a tight first half there was just the one goal
to separate the teams. The first goal in eurofootballfives.com
events often prove crucial to deciding the three
points so Hays will have been pleased that the
goal fell to them via Pete Sheppard. The game
remained close in the second half although Hays
doubled the deficit winning by two clear goals
with a final score of 4-2. Real Sociable Lads
first goals of the competition were scored by
Ian Butler and Ben Parnell. Hays found their goals
from a variety of sources in the name of Niklas
Mattson, Marc Folkard and Pete Sheppard again.
game that would take us to the half-way stage
in Group B was DHL Prague
Blue against Kehar
Club. Both teams had won their opening
fixtures and were looking in determined fashion
to make it two from two. It was no surprise then
when we found ourselves level at half-time 1-1.
Martin Rehacek scored for DHL Prague Blue with
Josef Rakosnik's fourth goal of the tournament
keeping things square for Kehar Club. The second
half proved one-way traffic (in the goalscoring
department anyway). Jan Rakosnik kept it in the
family with the third and fourth goals of the
game. Jan Sekerka scored the 5 th and final goal
of the match as Kehar Club completed a 4-1 win.
