A Team and CIS Committee kicked off Round 4. It
was the big game in Group B as it was the top
two facing off. Both teams had a 100% record,
both teams had scored 9 goals and the only difference
was that The A Team had conceded 1. Alexander
Gerasimovich was still unbeaten in the CIS Committee
two teams met in Group A of the 2014 Budapest
Fives and on that occasion it was CIS Committee
who emerged victorious with a 2-0 win. It looked
like we might be on for a repeat when Ihar Shcherbich
struck the opening blow for CIS Committee. They
went 2-0 up when Ihar Fedarynchyk moved on to
6 goals for the tournament.
main rival for the top goalscorer award at this
stage was Dydynho. The Frenchman moved on to 7
goals for the tournament as he reduced the lead

Shades of O'Shea came into Round 4 with realistic

be a winner takes all contest against The A Team
in Round 5.
Shades of O'Shea's opponents would be The Wafty
Crankers who were in a battle for 4th place with
Fiorentina Turner. They would be determined to
make the Plate as they were still technically

level at the break. Neill Fraser was on target
for the Wafty Crankers who could go a long way
to securing Plate football with a win here. Dan
O'Neill's goal for 50 Shades of O'Shea ensured
it was all to play for in the second period.
the second half 50 Shades of O'Shea moved up a
gear as they scored 3 of the 4 goals on offer.
There was a double for Scott Jessop who moved
on to 3 for the day and Adam Watson also found
the back of the net.
Wafty Crankers it was their Czech-based French
loan signing who grabbed the second goal as Romain
Chicoux was on target.
