The afternoon knock-out phase of the 2010 Algarve Open began with the Plate Quarter-Finals. First up was Burussia Forsyth against Vodafone FC. The team finishing 3 rd in Group A took the early advantage against Group B's 4 th placed side, Vodafone. Burussia took this lead into half-time and they held the advantage going into the second period. This match was the proverbial game of two halves as Vodafone FC proved a stunning fightback. Matt Skeath found the perfect time to open his account for the the day not once, but twice. His goals sent Vodafone FC into the Semi-Finals, 2-1.

 
 
 

On Pitch B, Your Mum's Athletic had been steadily improving all day and were looking for their 3 rd successive victory when they met Barrowcelona for a place in the last four. Barrowcelona's form was the mirror image of their opposition who won their first game but had since lost three on the bounce. The game went with the form book and Your Mum's Athletic always had the edge in this tie and they booked their Semi-Final berth with a 4-2 win. Joseph Turnbull, Tim West (2) and Matthew Totman with the goals for the victorious team. For Barrowcelona, there was personal achievement for Andrew Pinder as he scored twice.

 
 
 

Quarter-Final 3 saw Chingford Athletic take on Pete's Pink Pirates. The latter being another improving side, the former claiming the ultimate scalp of tournament favourites Athletico Do Hollande in their last game. This was going to prove a tough contest. Chingford Athletic started brighter and took a slender 2-1 advantage into the second period. We'd seen quite often today the fourth goal in a game being decisive. If Pete's Pink Pirates scored it, it would be game on at 2-2. If Chingford claimed it then Pete's Pink Pirates would have a major uphill task. As it turned out, when the fourth goal arrived it came from Chingford Athletic who made it 3-1 and it was them who would go through to the semi-finals. Sadly for Pete's Pink Pirates their participation in the 2010 Algarve Open was over.

 
 
 
The final Quarter-Final saw Portugal 's sole representative in this competition, Montenegro FC, play host to Chingford Squires. A win for the latter would give us a Chingford derby in the semi-final. The game was proving a close one and then the second half kicked off that derby was still possible with the teams level at 1-1. In the second half we witnessed a one further and decisive goal from Luis Felipe Reis to earn Montenegro FC a 2-1 victory to play against the other Chingford Athletic squad.
