second Semi-Final was Team Extreme versus Son
Gual. This had the potential to be an epic Semi-Final
as both teams came into the game on great run
of form. Team Extreme were unbeaten on the day
with 2 wins and 3 draws. Son Gual had won their
last two group games and were in high spirits.
Extreme could count themselves very unlucky
not to be playing in the Cup competition but
seemed to put that disappointment behind them
as they opened the scoring through Chika Kalu's
fourth goal of the tournament. They led 1-0
at half-time and all was rosy in the Team Extreme
were to get better for Son Gual after the restart
as Paul Roman pegged the English team back to
1-1. Momentum was with the Spanish side and
they took advantage to go 2-1 up through Jose-Luis
Rodriguez. Son Gual were looking at their third
win on the bounce and with their tails up it
was going to be a tough task for Team Extreme
to bring this back. Ultimately, in the allotted
time, it was a task that was to prove beyond
them and Son Gual were through.
half-time in these Semi-Finals it looked like
being Policia Mallorca v Team Extreme in the
Final. At the end it was Coverton Road v Son
Gual. How things can turn round!
farewell to Team Extreme for today and it felt
a bit rough that having gone unbeaten for so
long, just one half of football saw them exit
the tournament. I am sure greater success will
befall them in the future.
