Mans & Eagle had booked their space in the
Plate Final. The two teams set to do battle
for the second berth in the final were Ladzio
FC and Tommy Hilfiger.
FC qualified for this stage by finishing in
third position in Group B. They began the day
by reeling off 3 wins on the spin but missed
out on the Cup with 1 point from the final 6
available. They finished the group with a draw
and then a loss so were looking to change the
momentum of their fortunes. They were 2 wins
Hilfiger's form was heading in the other direction.
They began with a 0-0 draw before two defeats.
It looked like they could well be heading for
elimination before two victories propelled them
into the Plate qualification places.
an entertaining first half both teams were amongst
the goals with Jas Bhattle and Osman Mohammed
Ahmed both scoring their fourth goals of the
tournament. Frantz and Luis Moreno Tello were
both on target for Tommy Hilfiger. It set the
scene perfectly for the second half.
second half was quieter in terms of goals and
should the game remain at 2-2 then we'd need
penalties to decide the tie. A penalty shoot-out
was not required though as a second half-strike
would settle the tie. Cometh the hour, cometh
the main and that man was Luis Moreno Tello
again. He scored his fifth goal of the tournament
and it was arguably his most important.
day was over for Ladzio FC, thank you for participating
and supporting the tournament. We hope to see
you next season.
