3:36 met Saga Louts in the penultimate game
of Group D. Everything was almost done and dusted
in terms of qualification but there was one
more thing to settle – the final Plate place.
3:36 already had their place in the Plate guaranteed
and they only needed a draw to secure third
position. There was more at stake for Saga Louts
– a win and they would finish in third, a draw
and they would finish in fourth and if they
lost by 3 they would still be ok for third on
goal difference. Lose by four or more and they
would drop down to the Trophy and It's Back
would take their place.
the game underway it was a pretty even contest.
There were no goals in evidence in the opening
period and as we reached half-time at 0-0 it
looked, barring anything remarkable in the second
half, that both teams would be playing Plate
football this afternoon. In the second half
€agles 3:36 opened the door for It's Back as
Julian Smith put his team ahead. Saga Louts
swiftly shut that door with Dom Vicos restoring
parity at 1-1.
how it finished – job well done by both. On
to the knock-out phase…
