SK Zelenec (Cze)




Rigford Seahawks (Eng)


A full strength SK Zelenec against Rigford Seahawks could easily have been the lineup battling for the 2009 Prague Trophy Cup Final. As it turned out the two teams were meeting in the Plate Final a testament to the strength of the teams in this tournament and notably the Group of Death from which both these teams emerged.

Cast your mind back to the morning group phase when these two teams met and you may recall a 2-0 victory for the Rigford Seahawks. A repeat of that scoreline would do them just nicely to pick up their second set of silverware in as many tournaments. SK Zelenec were in their debut final and would need to summon up a mammoth effort to overturn the form book for their first slice of glory.

It did not start to plan for the Czech team as Matt Raw scored the opening goal in the final for the Seahawks. The English would double their lead to 2-0 before the break from Chris Jestico. SK Zelenec had just one half of football to change their fortunes and score at least twice to force extra time. Their task got even harder though when Rich Clements increased the lead to three. By this stage SK Zelenec were demoralized and a ruthless Rigford Seahawks were in no mood to go easy on their opposition. Tom Hallam scored for the second successive game to make it 4-0 and even the goalkeeper got in on the act to make it 5-0.

Another fine performance from the Rigford Seahawks and they will certainly be a force to be reckoned with at future tournaments. SK Zelenec will also surely have better days to come once they get their injured players back in the starting line-up. It shows the quality of these two teams when they will probably be disappointed with the success they achieved.
