The fifth mini-football tournament for the Cup of the Interregional Non-Commercial Partnership of Shoemakers was held during the September MosShoes exhibition.
The tournament featured 4 teams: Ralph Ringer, Rieker, Shoe Partnership, and Salamander. The rookie of the tournament, the Salamander team, beat Rieker in the first half with a tough 4: 1 score. The second half was much calmer. Players often diverted the ball over the field line, but the score did not change.
In the second game, players from the Shoemakers Partnership and Ralph Ringer clashed. In the first half, the score changed quickly - 1: 1, then 2: 1 in favor of Partnership. The second half brought a lot of attacks on Ralph Ringer's goal, but the dexterous goalkeeper was on the lookout. This half was full of dangerous moments and clear play of "Partnership", it ended with the score 2: 3 in favor of "Ralph Ringer".
In the first half between the “Shoe Partnership” and Rieker, the players only did what they fell, sent the ball offside and hit the goal. Even when Shahin Asadov, the captain of the Rieker team hit the corner, the ball slipped between all the defenders, but did not hit the goal. By the end of the first half, a player from Marco Tozzi scored a goal - 1: 0. By the end of the game, a minute before the final whistle, the ball flew into the goal of the loser Rieker - 2: 1.
At the end, the strongest rivals met - Salamander and Ralph Ringer. “Another goal, another 2, another 33 goal!”, The fans vigorously commented on the 3: 1 score in favor of Salamander. In the second half, the fans of the losing “Ralph Ringer” were pretty nervous, and here the player number 6 from the team Salamander scored another ball into the opponent’s goal, after another 2 minutes the gap widened - 5: 1. 3 minutes before the end of the match - 6: 1. In the last minute, the Ralph Ringer team rolled a single ball that wasn’t decisive.
1 place - Salamander
2 place - “Ralph Ringer”
3 place - “Shoe Partnership”
4 place - Rieker.
The best player of the tournament was Vitaly Kuzmin, who played for the Rieker team (who was still involved in the Dynamo football club at school). Svetlana Kirsanova from Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk received the prize of the best fan of the tournament.
“The Partnership team took third place. “It was a very busy season. Due to the heavy workload, many of us did not touch the ball for several months, which affected the result, ”commented Eric Dadayan, CEO of Region Market.
We add that the participating teams have created a charity fund, which will be replenished with a collection of participating teams and advertising during the tournament. The current tournament has provided fees in 160 thousand rubles. The teams transferred money to the account of the Moscow Center for Pediatric Maxillofacial Surgery for the operation of 11-year-old Vadim Illarionov. The boy suffers from an odontoma or rather a jaw - a tumor disease.
“From now on, the tournament will bring positive emotions not only to its participants and fans, but also to specific children. Children who need help. I hope that our initiative will be supported by colleagues, ”added Eric Dadayan.
