We were down to our final 4 teams in the Plate competition. The first Semi-Final would see Pass To Russ FC versus CTMB Pumas. This promised to be a high quality encounter.

Both teams were making their debut in our tournaments and, as such, were breaking new ground with every new step they took in this tournament. They were now just one game away from a European final.

The two teams had similar records so far. Pass To Russ FC had 4 wins from 6 games with 17 goals scored and 8 conceded. CTMB Pumas had 3 wins from 5 games with 18 goals scored and 9 conceded.

Despite the similar records, CTMB Pumas got off to an absolute flyer and never looked back. Tom Farrar scored his seventh of the day to put his side 1-0 up. Tom Coulter wasn't far behind in the scoring stakes as his sixth of the day made it 2-0. The two Tom's then added another goal each to make it 4-0. Tom Farrar then completed his second hat-trick in as many games to make it 5-0 before adding another goal for good measure. Final score, 6-0.

It was farewell to Pass To Russ FC for the day but we thank them for attending the tournament and the post-event social. It was great to meet you all.

 
 
 

The second Semi-Final was Jackson's Five versus Dragons. Who could join CTMB Pumas in the Plate Final?

There was nothing to separate these two teams on the field of play as we arrived at half-time locked together at 0-0. The second half came and went with the two teams still level at 0-0. A penalty shoot-out would decide this one.

Jackson's Five had just emerged from their first shoot-out in our tournaments in the previous round. Naturally, they were successful (3-2) and a repeat would do them just fine.

Things looked good after the first round of penalties as Dragon's Aled Williams hit the post. Mauro Hernandez who scored 2 penalties in the Quarter-Final was on target again as Jackson's Five lead 1-0. Both teams converted their second penalty Steven Blight for Dragons, Will Sambrook for Jackson's Five. The next round of penalties saw Dragons pull level as Ned Pendleton scored whilst Robbie Petch saw his penalty saved by Craig Dobson.

We were into sudden death and Neil Stoodley scored for Dragons. Rich Jackson put his miss behind him in the Quarters to keep his team in this Semi-Final. The fifth round of spot-kicks proved decisive. Ben Gregory was the hero he scored his penalty and made the save from Paul Taylor as Jackson's Five went through 4-3 on penalties.
