Norton Old Boys were next in action and they had a tough fixture to look forward to. They were up against the unbeaten team from Belarus CIS. Could the team who flew in from Minsk make it four wins out of four or could Norton Old Boys pick up their second win of the day?

It would be a tough ask for the English team whose form had just dipped in the last game and a bit so they would need to find their early tournament form under the Prague sun. To be fair, they played pretty well but they were up against some tough opposition as CIS continued on their merry way with another Valery Ivashka goal to put them ahead. Pavel Tomash made it 2-0 before the interval and all was going with form.

The second half belonged to Valery Ivashka who scored two more to complete his hat-trick and the first CIS hat-trick in eurofootballfives.com competition. For Norton Old Boys there was some personal joy for Mike Baber who scored for the second consecutive game. His goals were yet to earn points though as CIS took the victory 4-1.

 
 
 

CIS and FC Xaverov had so far matched each other stride for stride and with CIS recording their fourth victory could CIS do the same? The team that stood in their way was Zizkov Drunks looking to avoid four in a row four defeats. If you were a betting man you would put your money on the team in yellow and green to record another victory. If you had you would not have been disappointed but the result was not as easy as you may think.

The game started off pretty well for FC Xaverov who led 2-0 at the break with Petr Dvorak breaking the deadlock and Rudolf Schiller scoring the second. In the second half Daler of Zizkov Drunks managed what no-one else had done so far today and that was beat the Xaverov defence. It was his second goal in as many games but also another consolation as Starst Michal Predikant completed the 3-1 win.

FC Xaverov joined CIS on top of Group B with a maximum 12 points but slipped to second by the narrowest of margins goals scored. Zizkov Drunks remained in 6th position.

 
 
 

Arguably the key game of Round 4 was Saipan FC versus Dark Horses. The two teams sat on 3 points and a win for either team now would put them in third place and give them a 3 point lead going into the final round of games. Third place would give the team a fighting chance of making the Cup too. This was therefore a hugely important game for these two teams.

The early advantage was to Dark Horses who claimed an early lead through Aled Byron. In the second half the onus was on Saipan FC to get back into the fixture but they fell further behind as Chris Bunclark made it 2-0. The momentum was with the Dark Horses now and when Aled Byron made it 3-0 he secured the victory and a fine change of fortunes for the Dark Horses. Following two opening defeats they had now recorded two wins, were in third place with a very good chance of making the Cup. For Saipan FC it looked odds on they would be in the Plate as they remained in 4th position.
