We were now at the business end of the tournament and into the knock-out stage of the 2013 Krakow Trophy. Lose now and it was the end of the day from a football perspective.

The first Quarter-Final would be contested by Contejus Hurricanes and Its Back. On paper this should be the easiest Quarter-Final to predict. The 3rd best 3rd placed finishers reward for the highest league placing of all the Plate Quarter-Finalists is a tie against the lowest ranked team in the tournament to date. However, it doesn't always work out that way and the 2012 Mallorca Tournament proved this when Inextremes gunned down 4-times Cup winners Olympic Phil Babb at this same stage! Could Its Back provide the same heroics?

In the opening period there was just the one goal and it went to the favourites Contejus Hurricanes and was scored by Christopher Agathangelou. After the break Christopher Agathangelou scored again to put his team in a commanding position. Martin Weltman rounded things off to make it 3-0 and Contejus Hurricanes were through.

For Its Back, they could retire to the BBQ tent and enjoy the cheap Tyskie that was on offer and work through the rest of their hangovers hair of the dog and all that. It wasn't their best eurofootballfives.com appearance on the pitch but we believe they had a great time off it (if they could remember!)

 
 
 

The second Quarter-Final was Awiw versus Hardly Athletic. Awiw had qualified for the Plate courtesy of their 4th placed finish in Group A with 8 points from their 5 games including taking 4 points off the top two in Group A. Their opponents Hardly Athletic had a less auspicious CV in this tournament and were the underdogs going into the game.

Awiw were flying the flag for Poland in this competition. With 5 of the 6 Polish teams that had taken to the field this morning qualifying for the Cup competition it was all down to Awiw to take glory at this level. In a very close first half it was they who edged it 3-2 thanks to a hat-trick from Maciej Wrona outgunning a double from Stuart Warren for Hardly Athletic.

It was game on and the goals didn't stop flowing in the second half although the goals were a bit more one-sided. Nigel Walters added a third goal for Hardly Athletic but Marcin Kluza (2) and Konrad Moszczynski (2) ensured it would be Awiw going through. It was a great game and the final score was 7-3.

Hardly Athletic would sadly bow out at this stage.
