The first Plate Semi-Final saw Tsunami FC take on Spanish opposition for the third time in the day. They had edged through last time round via the Golden Goal route although would face a sterner test this time against Equipo A. Equipo A were coming into the game on the back of a 10-3 victory. With their shooting boots still red hot the Spanish team continued their quarter-final form and when they took the lead through Xabi Moya they never looked back. A one goal lead became two, then three and finally 4-0. Xabi Moya scored a second of the game taking him to 10 for the tournament which put him top of the goalscorer charts. Albert Marx and Jack Foorde both scored for the second game in a row and Equipo A had booked their first final in action. Tsunami FC's football was over for the day and they had a tough draw in the tournament throughout.

The second semi-final saw a strong Hawks side with three wins out of four take on Kings Old Boys who were undefeated in two games. The game proved to be a closer contest than the first semi-final in terms of scoreline and when the teams turned round at the break Hawks held a slender 2-1 lead thanks to a double strike from Rory Gallagher in response to Martyn Kent 's goal for Kings Old Boys. With the game perfectly poised the next goal was going to be crucial in deciding which team would make it through to meet Equipo A in the Plate final. When it came it was Yaser El Borghi's second goal in consecutive games that gave Hawks a 3-1 lead and a two goal cushion. It was a lead that would prove decisive and with Kings Old Boys unable to break down the Hawks defence again we said goodbye to them one hurdle short of the final straight. It would be Hawks who would have it all to do again one more time.
