Very much like Atlético Madrid, Lydiate Lynx could have been crowned Champions with one game to go, but ended up losing their first game of this tournament on Thursday 15th May. This left a showdown with Great Crosby, a team with whom games are generally very close, to decide it all! All the Lydiate Lynx had to do was avoid defeat!!
Lydiate Lynx took the lead 1.0 but against the run of play Crosby equalised. However, the Lynx took a 2.1 lead in to half time. The second half saw the boys start well but slowly retreat. An own goal made it 2.2. The last 5 minutes were unbearable, but the on the final whistle, the draw was confirmed, and with it the Championship for Lydiate Lynx.
