Plate Semi-Final time and things were getting interesting. We were now just 6 games from the conclusion of the 2018 Amsterdam Sixes with 4 teams in contention for the Plate and 4 teams for the Cup. We began with the Plate Semi-Finals and up first was FC Letcom against FC Gijon.

FC Letcom qualified for this stage by finishing in third position in Group A with Spider FC Gijon taking fourth position in Group B. The two teams had very similar records in the group phase with both winning 2 of their 5 fixtures and picking up 6 points. FC Letcom had the best defensive record of the two teams with 6 goals conceded (compared to FC Gijon's 8 goals). FC Gijon were much more potent in front of goal with 12 goals scored compared to the 6 for FC Letcom. It is worth noting though that Group B (FC Gijon's group) was a much higher scoring group with 66 goals compared to 54 in Group A.

In this Semi-Final, it was the attacking prowess of FC Gijon which proved dominant. Kieran Eastwood put the ahead in the first half. Then, Connor Seymour scored either side of half time as FC Gijon went through 3-0. They proved they had some defensive stability of their own as goalkeeper Chris Jones kept their third clean sheet of the tournament.

FC Letcom were out at the Semi-Final stage for the second year running. Third time lucky next year?

 
 
 

FC Gijon had booked their space in the Plate Final. The two teams set to do battle for the second berth in the final were Top Bunners and Lostwithiel FC.

Top Bunners qualified for this stage by finishing in third position in Group B. They began the day with a heavy loss but had since reeled off 3 wins out of 4 with only a narrow 1-0 loss to Dutch side SDZ. They had a positive goal difference of +5 thanks to 12 goals scored and 7 conceded.

Lostwithiel FC had been there or thereabouts all day long. They were competitive throughout but couldn't quite secure the results they needed along the way. Their results read 2-2, 2-3, 2-3, 2-2 and 2-1. On another day those losses could easily have been draws and those draws could easily have been wins and we could be looking at a team in the Cup.

In line with Lostwithiel's day so far we had another close game here in the first half at least. It was 1-1 as goals from Jordan Cummings (Lostwitheil FC) and Adam Hale (Top Bunners) cancelled each other out.

In the second half, Top Bunners moved ahead with Adam Hale's second of the game. He then completed his hat-trick as Top Bunners opened up a 3-1 lead. They were out of sight when Antonio Villa made it 4-1 as they inflicted Lostwithiel's heaviest defeat of the day.

The day was over for Lostwithiel FC, thank you for participating and supporting the tournament. We hope to see you next season. Top Bunners had a final to prepare for.
