The Plate competition's semi-final featured two teams that finished in 3rd and 4th positions in their respective groups. Moles Salah, who had claimed the 3rd spot in Group A, faced off against Big Time Krakow, who secured the 4th position in Group B.

This would be a tough match to call as usually you would plump for the 3 rd placed team. Moles Salah certainly had the credentials with the superior points record, greater number of goals scored and the better goal difference of the two teams. However, Big Time Krakow had won two titles with us before and if they can win Cup competitions they'd be more than capable of winning the Plate. The Polish team had the best defence of the two teams conceding just 3 goals so far and had only lost once today (compared with two defeats for Moles Salah).

The first half of the match saw Ola Haukland make a significant impact for Big Time Krakow. He scored a crucial goal that provided his team with a 1-0 lead heading into halftime. It was now up to Moles Salah to try and breach a defence that had kept 3 clean sheets in 5 games to date.

As the game progressed, both teams battled fiercely, but neither could find the back of the net in the second half. The match finished 1-0 with a fourth shut out for Adrian Baranek and his defenders. The home team had a final to prepare for.


So who would meet Big Time Krakow in the Plate Final? The two teams set to do battle were Mngball FC and Krwiodawcow Cracovii. If the first semi-final was a low-scoring close contest, this second semi-final could not have been a bigger contrast. We had goals galore and most of them to the English team.

The first half of the match was completely dominated by Mngball FC, who asserted their dominance with a commanding 5-0 lead at halftime. James Evans was the catalyst, opening the scoring and setting the tone for Mngball FC. Aaron White joined the scoring spree, netting twice, while James Evans added another to his tally (7 now for the tournament). Ayden Ashraf also contributed with a goal.

As the second half commenced, Aaron White continued his impressive performance, completing his hat-trick. Ayden Ashraf added his second goal of the game. Krwiodawcow Cracovii managed to score a consolation goal through Szymon Peron. Krwiodawcow had done miraculously to reach the Plate with their depleted squad but it was a game too far and, in truth, they were crushed by Mngball FC.

The match concluded with a resounding 7-1 victory for Mngball FC. The result equalled the highest scoring Plate Semi-Final in Krakow Trophy history (in 2017 Fylde FC A defeated Deddington Sea Otters by the same score). Mngball FC's impressive performance set the stage for an exciting Plate Final clash with Big Time Krakow.
