On Sunday, 20th of August, a traditional LikeIT.lv beach soccer tournament for IT companies took place at Kipsala beach in Riga. Eight teams competed for the cup, which was grabbed by “Tele2SSC”, that in the final game passed “Accenture” after the penalty kicks. Third place taken by “Evolution Gaming”.

As usual, at first all teams, divided into two groups by four, played the round-robin each to other. After then two best squads from the group continued the battle for the cup, but others found out places from fifth to eight.

In the group stage one of two debutants “Accenture” showed the best performance – three wins, including 2:1 against principal opponents “Tele2SSC”. The third place in group A was taken by “Squalio cloud consulting”, but “TestDevLab” unfortunately finished with no points.

In group B “Evolution Gaming” team took the first place, followed by “Datakom”, “Scandiweb” and “Zabbix”.

In so called “small semifinals” team “Zabbix” won against “Squalio” 3:2, but “Scandiweb” passed by “TestDevLab” also 3:2.

In semifinals “Accenture” beat “Datakom” 3:0, and “Tele2SSC” won against “Evolution Gaming” 2:1 in overtime.

In a final lead was taken by “Tele2SS”, but opponents – “Accenture” – tied early in the second half. To be honest, “Accenture” dominated during the last three minutes and also in overtime, but couldn’t score due to contender’s goalkeeper brilliant performance. In penalty kick the luck was with “Tele2SSC” team, which took the third title in a row. 

Right after the final game tournaments best scorers – Janis Losaks (“Accenture”) and Vladimirs Stirmanovs (“Scandiweb”) (each scorred seven times) were congratulated, as well as best players within each team:

  • Andrejs Korols (“Tele2SSC”),
  • Jānis Losaks (“Accenture”),
  • Maksims Jakovlevs (“Evolution Gaming”),
  • Edgars Picka (“Datakom”),
  • Vladimirs Stirmanovs (“Scandiweb”),
  • Glebs Ivanovskis (“Zabbix”),
  • Roberts Osipovs (“Squalio cloud consulting”),
  • Armands Locmelis (“TestDevLab”).

 

As usual, also this year tournament had a charity motive – all the participation fees paid by enterprises were diverted into football inventory, which was given to Northeast Soccer center – 40 balls will be delivered to regions for children and youth football school’s needs.

Since the tournament is organized for IT enterprises teams, it was supported by the "Latcraft" association. Eduards Sizovs, leader and co-founder of the union, presented a ticket to the annual “Devternity" conference to the most valuable player in the tournament - Tele2SSC goalkeeper Andrej Korol.

See you all again next summer!
