would meet Futbol 7 in the Plate Semi-Finals?
Blyborough United and Have Ago Heroes would do
battle for the honour. Blyborough United were
the top ranked of all the teams in the Plate with
2 wins, 1 draw and a return of 7 points from 4
games. On another day a haul of 7 points would
see them into the Cup. They were therefore arguably
the team to beat.
Ago Heroes started well with 4 points out of 6
but followed this up with two defeats. Could they
rediscover their early tournament form?
teams were proving to be well matched on the show
pitch of Pitch D. This was arguably the most enthralling
of the Quarter-Final ties and the teams shared
the spoils in the first half turning round level
at 1-1. Phil Spindley was on the scoresheet for
Blyborough United. Cal Quinn with the goal for
the second half and the next goal was always going
to go a long way to securing a Semi-Final place.
Normal time ran out with the teams still level
at 1-1 and we were into extra time. Extra time
in eurofootballfives' tournaments are always Golden
Goal so if it wasn't before, this tie was now
on a knife's edge.
we couldn't find a goal in extra time we were
off to penalties but the dreaded shoot-out was
not needed thanks to Ash Wainwright. Wainwright's
Golden Goal for the Have Ago Heroes meant their
day continued and sadly it was the end of the
road for our friend's at Blyborough United. With
just 1 defeat in 5 games they deserved to go further
but sometimes you don't get what you deserve in
football – bad luck lads.
