Cup Quarter-Finals saw the tournament's top 8
teams of the 15 team draw come head to head to
see which team would emerge as 2012 Krakow Trophy
champions. We had 5 home teams and 3 travelling
teams still with a chance of grabbing glory so
where's your money? Who do you think will emerge
first Quarter-Final saw the Polish team, Vamos,
take on England's Half Parisian Saint Germain.
Vamos would surely be favourites having lifted
the Group A title with 10 points out of 12 – the
only points they dropped is when they played over
half the game a man down. Half Parisian Saint
Germain would be no pushovers though as they came
into the game on the back of two successive wins.
Vamos were under any illusions on their potential
progress to the Semi-Finals they were no longer.
Half Parisian Saint Germain took a half-time lead
through Michael Meredith. You had to go back to
the 2008 Barca Fives to find the last team who
finished third in their group before going on
to claim a title (Rapid Bosco Navas). Half Parisian
Saint Germain were certainly in the mix to become
they were to take one step closer to this goal
they would need Golden Goal Extra Time though
as in the second half Przemak Musiaz equalized.
After the first period of extra-time we were still
all square at 1-1 with a penalty shoot-out looming.
We would not get that far though as Przemak Musiaz
scored his second of the game and put Vamos through.
They had overcome a major hurdle in Half Parisian
tournament was over for Half-Parisian Saint Germain
but they had shown plenty of fine attributes today
and if they toured again we are sure there is
more to come from them.
