* CSB Stars won 3-2 on penalties. 

As the 2013 Lisbon Tournament Cup Semi-Finals were about to get underway we were down to the elite 4 teams in the tournament. It was a fine tournament for the local Lisbon teams with all Semi-Finalist's coming from Portugal. This was only the second time in 47 tournaments we'd had all Semi-Finalists come from the same country (the other being Barcelona Fives 2012 with 4 Spanish teams).


On Pitch A we had Group A winners, Funsport A, against the Group B Runners-Up, CSB Stars. Funsport A were the favourites and unbeaten for the day with 4 wins and 1 draw. The game was certainly going in their favour during the first half as they led 3-1 by the break.


The second half saw a great recovery from CSB Stars as Goncalo Fennura (6 goals for the tournament) and Tiago Botelho (5 goals for the tournament) brought them back level at 3-3. That's how it finished. We were into Golden Goal extra time but neither team could find that decisive moment and we would have a penalty shoot-out to decide the first Cup Semi-Final.


The first two rounds of penalties were exemplary and we were level at 2-2. The third penalty for Funsport A was put into orbit and CSB Stars had one kick to win it. They did and the winner sparked wild celebrations.


So, who would meet CSB Stars in the final? It was HS Decor versus Futsal Pioes. HS Décor were the team to beat with 5 wins out of 5 and a 100% record. Futsal Pioes would, in theory, be no pushover though with 10 points from 15 (3 wins, 1 draw, 1 loss).


If the first Cup Semi-Final was a very close affair then then second one was a bit more one-sided. The HS Décor bandwagon was gathering pace and there appeared to be no signs of cracking as the tournament reached its latter stages.


HS Décor were 3-0 up at half time and had one foot in the Cup Final. Futsal Pioes were unable to come back and HS Décor went on to increase their lead to 5-0. There were two goals for Andre Anisuosio and two goals for Bruno Dugate to help them secure the win.
