Coverton Road (Eng)




Son Gual (Spa)


The first final of the day would see Coverton Road and Son Gual come head-to-head in a bid to lift the 2013 Mallorca Fives Plate Title.

It was a first final for both these teams in action so could they celebrate their first final by picking up the winners medals and leaving their opposition to settle for the Runners-Up medallions.

With six games of football already under their belts the two teams would need to summon one last burst of energy to ensure they would be picking up the coveted winners trophy in the presentation. Both teams came into the Plate Final on the back of morale-boosting wins against higher-placed teams in the group stages and both teams had turned around a half-time Semi-Final defeat to reach this stage.

The game started off at quite a pace and with some intensity. After the early exchanges it was Son Gual who took the lead through Miguel Pol. The game reached half-time and still it was just the one goal that separated the two teams.

In the second half both teams were tiring and Son Gual seemingly moreso. They were without subs and their legs must have felt heavy. They defended well and ran their hearts out for the cause. Coverton Road were able to ring the changes with their substitutes and pressed hard for an equalizer. It was ultimately elusive though and the tired legs of Son Gual had just enough energy left in them, just enough to keep the lactic acid and Coverton Road at bay.

We congratulate Son Gual on a fine victory and a fine run of 4 wins in 4 games to claim success. We also bestow our commiserations on to Coverton Road who had worked so hard to get this far. So close but so cigar we hope the Runners-Up medals are some consolation. Winners medals next time lads!
