who would meet Pink Flamingos A in the Semi-Final?
It was Tinniedad & Tobacco against Missing
Magpies. Tinniedad & Tobacco had been excellent
in the group stage this morning and only a 1-1
draw versus Rayford Athletic had prevented them
securing a 100% record. They had the best defence
in the tournament with just one conceded but
were still free-scoring at the other end with
11 to their name. This was their second Cup
Quarter-Final and they were looking to maintain
a 100% success record after they defeated 2012
Valencia Fives champions FC Miracle (Hun) at
the same stage at the 2014 Barcelona Fives.
Magpies had also had a good morning and qualified
for the Cup as the second best 3 rd placed team.
A game against Tinniedad & Tobacco could
hardly be considered a “reward” for their morning's
efforts. Missing Magpies one concern would be
that their form had seemed to tail off after
3 successive wins. Hopefully for them the lunch
break came at the right time to recharge the
batteries and to go again in the afternoon knock-out
got off to a great start and there were goals
aplenty – four of them in the first half alone
as the honours were shared, 2-2. Mike Wilkes
scored a brace to take his tally to 5 goals
for the day for Tinniedad & Tobacco whilst
Henry Pescod and Dan Simpson both netted for
Magpies were now one of just two teams who had
breached the Tinniedad & Tobacco defence
today. They scored again after the break through
Max Pumphrey but Tinniedad & Tobacco's own
goal-scoring prowess would ensure it would be
they who went through to the Semi-Finals as
Jon McKinley, Will Boulton and Jon McKinley
again completed a 5-3 victory.
was a great effort from Missing Magpies – close
but no cigar. When it was 4-3 they had a sniff
but the game's 8 th goal killed it off.
