Athletic and Depo Legends met in the second Semi-Final.
Following Drunk Perfect's victory in the first
Semi-Final we had a scenario where should Depo
Legends win then we would have a repeat of the
2013 Barcelona Fives Trophy Final in the 2015
Barcelona Fives Plate Final. Hardly Athletic were
clearly determined to prevent that from happening.
Dooradoyle had a pretty impressive Semi-Final
record. It read:
Amsterdam Fives Plate: Deportivo Dooradoyle won
3-1 v CEPL (Hol)
Barcelona Fives Trophy: Deportivo Dooradoyle won
1-0 v Team Also Ran (Ire)
Barcelona Fives Plate: Depo Allstars won 2-0 v
Shahs of Sunset (Eng)
Berlin Fives Plate: Deportivo Dooradoyle won 4-1
v All of Ronan's Men (Ire)
well as this fixture, their other team (known
as Alabama Hotpockets this year) was in the Cup
Semi-Final. Could they maintain their 100% record
at this stage of a tournament?
Athletic were in unchartered territory but with
just defeat in their five games they had impressed
to date so it would be interesting to see how
they fared as the games got tougher and the crowds
got bigger on the touchlines. They seemed to be
adjusting to the requirements pretty well as they
triumphed to win this Semi-Final 1-0 thanks to
an Alan Glynn strike.
Legends Semi-Final record had gone and there would
be no repeat of the 2013 Trophy Final. There could
well be Hardly Athletic success in the offing
though as they charged on.
