Hangover 96 (Eng)




United Colours of Benetton (Hol)

Water Boy (Por)




Let Us Win or Elsie (Eng)


The first Plate Semi-Final saw Hangover 96 meet United Colours of Benetton….or at least it would have if the game had taken place.


The Hangover 96 victory on penalties over Parry St Germain had taken its toll on the team and they were forced to withdraw from the tournament. United Colours of Benetton went through to the Plate Final with a 3-0 walkover.


The second Plate Semi-Final would see Water Boy take on Let Us Win or Elsie. After their Quarter-Final win maybe the luck was changing for Let Us Win or Elsie – they'd bagged a last minute equalizer in their final group game, they'd benefitted from an own goal in the Quarter-Final and their form was changing.


The momentum was with them and Matt Horne scored his third goal of the tournament to give the English team a 1-0 lead. The pressure was on Water Boy and could they get back into it? They could and found an equalizer before half-time to make it 1-1. Pedro Vilhena scored his second goal in as many games to bring them level.


The next goal in this match proved to be the winning goal and it was Nuno Primo of Water Boy who scored it. Water Boy had doubled their tournament goals tally in one game and maybe, for them, they were hitting form at just the right time.


We had to say goodbye to Let Us Win or Elsie but we congratulate them on a fine Algarve performance and fighting lady luck as well as their opposition. Until next time….
