With the game underway it was Turn Down For Watford who took the initial advantage which was just what they needed. Not only for the obvious advantage of the 1-0 lead but an early goal could well lead to an open game. They took the lead through Ben Gregory. It was a lead that would not last long though as James Gallagher's fifth strike of the tournament meant Milner Street were soon level at 1-1.

 

Turn Down For Watford were back in front though with Jase Opoku-Afriyie's seventh goal of the day and they had the luxury of a two goal cushion when Rich Lyons struck for 3-1.

 

Could Milner Street get back into the game in the second half? The quick answer to that was no as Ben Gregory struck his fifth goal of the tournament to make it 4-1. There was a glimmer of hope for Milner Street when Frederik Wilkinson made it 4-2. However, any hopes of a comeback were snuffed out when Rich Lyons scored his sixth of the day to round off a fine win for Turn Down For Watford. Final score, 5-2.

 

For Milner Street it was disappointment to fall just short. For now they had to be content with Runners-Up medals but we hoped we would see them again at the event for another crack at the title.

 

Huge congratulations though to Turn Down For Watford on winning their first eurofootballfives.com silverware. They did it in style with 5-2 and 5-1 wins in the knockout phase. They were the top scorers in the tournament and boasted the top 3 scorers in the tournament. Jase Opoku Afriyie (7), Rich Lyons (6) and Ben Gregory (5) the latter joint third in the scorer charts.

 

Congratulation to Jase Opoku-Afriyie who would collect the top scorer award in the presentation. We leave the Plate competition for today though by celebrating our winners. We offer huge congratulations to Turn Down For Watford!
