second Plate Semi-Final would not see so many
goals but proved to be just as tight and arguably
just as thrilling. The two teams in action were
Contejus Hurricanes and Goals Aloud. If you were
looking at form as a guide to the winners of this
tie then you had to put your money on Contejus
Hurricanes who were on rich vein of form. They
had 3 consecutive wins scoring 9 and conceding
just the 1 goal (3-0, 3-1, 3-0) and some would
argue this was championship winning form.
Aloud were not doing too badly themselves with
two wins out of 3 and would provide good opposition
for the Hurricanes. Testimony to this was the
fact that there was nothing to divide the two
teams in the opening half.
time running out who could claim victory and a
place in the Plate Final against the Dark Horses?
Cometh the hour, cometh the man is an often used
phrase in football punditry and we'll give it
a run out here….the man who cometh when the hour
cometh was Tom Lock of Contejus Hurricanes and
his team were 1-0 up.
Aloud were unable to find an equalizer as Hurricanes
goalkeeper Andy Day kept his 3rd clean sheet in
4 games. The clean sheet helped secure the Hurricanes
fourth win on the spin and their place in the
Final was booked.
had to say goodbye to Goals Aloud but we congratulate
them on a fine Algarve performance and they had
beaten their Amsterdam debut. Maybe a place in
the Plate Final next time out? We wouldn't bet
