Final day of Prague Deaf Open served with 4 interesting matches for the spectators: Morning started with the match between Prague Women and ProSkill. Teams were very motivated to get their first win in the tournament. Also we could see two matches, where teams met already in the group classifications – Snakes Brno vs. VIP Team and Hero Helsinki vs. Bohemians. A lot of tension was in the game between Swiss team and Kladenska Florida and we could saw a big tournaround in the favour to the Czech team.
The first game started a little sleepily and with the slight domination of Prague Women team. ProSkil started to play better and catch the score but they woke up to late so they end up without the win on the tournament.
Prague Women – ProSkill 3:2
VIP Team was determined to return Snakes Brno for the tight loss in the group match, but they couldnt put the ball behind the moody goalkeeper. They lost a lot of energy with dealing how to score on the other side Brno took advantage and scored 10 goals.
VIP Team – FbC Snakes Brno 2:10
In the final match of second division it was somehow clear that Zurich will surprisnigly easily win the match against FC Kladenska Florida. But the Czech team didnt give up and slowly catch Swiss team – they also made +2 lead. In the end of the game Zurich scored so they made a big pressure to the opposite goal in the end but they failed to score.
FC Kladenska Florida – GSV Zurich 6:5
Finnish and the host team met already in the opening of the tournament on Friday where the team from Finland won 7:4. As it turned out the same teams have also finished the tournament program. It was pretty hard game where Bohemians were a little more dominant and more accurate. In the normal 2x20min time Bohemians should win the tournament, but in the extended -3x20min – „big final“ they didnt have enough energy so Hero Helsinki scored 3 important goals for the win.
Hero Helsinki – FbŠ Bohemians 8:7
For the closure we can say that the tournament was more than successful and we hope that also the participants enjoyed their stay in Prague. There is a lot of new things that we learned during the whole organisation so we will work on the details that will make your stay next year even better.
