final Plate Quarter-Final would be contested by
Johns Boys and Deportivo Lack of Talent. The prize
at stake was a semi-final place against Real So
So Bad. Johns Boys would be favourites having
two wins under their belts compared to Deportivo's
one but we were now in a knock-out situation where
anything could happen.
first strike in this game went to Joe Rees of
Deportivo Lack of Talent and that's how it stayed
until half-time. The first goal of these games
often prove crucial as it forces the opposition
on to the front foot, take risks and inevitably
leave gaps at the back.
is how it proved in this game as Deportivo Lack
of Talent mustered the talent to find two more
goals (both through James Smith) to outgun a solitary
Chris Hope strike. The lead proved unassailable
and Deportivo Lack of Talent had their second
win of the day and made safe passage to the semi-finals.
For Johns Boys, alas, their footballing day was
over and they could take a well-earned rest under
the Budapest sun.
