games down, four to go in Group A. RFT (Lat) versus
Johnsbridge FC (Eng) was up next.
had looked formidable so far 2 games, 2 wins,
12 goals scored and 0 conceded. The only surprising
factor was that they were not top of the table
as they trailed Lilchicago on goal difference.
This was a chance for RFT to put the pressure
on the Lithuanian team by opening up a 3 point
gap at the top (temporarily at least).
Johnsbridge FC, it was a chance to bounce back
from defeat to Lilchicago. If they could, they
could go into third and just 2 points behind their
opponents. With their last game against Fleet
Street Elite and RFT's last game against Lilchicago
a win here would give them every chance of qualifying
for the Cup despite how the table currently looked.
It was never going to be easy though and so it
the half-time whistle blew RFT were leading 4-0.
Edgars Jurcenoks opened the scoring, Dmitrijs
Sostaks made it 2-0 before Jurcenoks added his
second for 3-0. Arturs Levenbergs goal meant the
second half would probably be a mere formality.
looked increasingly like Group A would be a two
horse race and goal difference could well be the
deciding factor at the top. To this end, RFT showed
no mercy on their opponents. Edgars Jurcenoks
(2) duly completed his hat-trick and Dmitrijs
Sostaks was on target again. Kristaps Zakrevskis
completed the scoring in an 8-0 win.
a high-scoring tournament it is worth noting that
Dmitrijs Bokse had just kept his third clean sheet.
He was the only goalkeeper in the tournament yet
to concede after 3 games played.
