* FC Dukesfield win in Golden Goal extra-time


The first final of the day would see FC Dukesfield and Inter Urmum come head-to-head to lift the 2011 Mallorca Tournament Plate Title.


Who would emerge victorious? Well, we could look at their previous encounter in the group stage to give us a clue. On that occasion a closely contested game was decided by the odd goal with FC Dukesfield claiming the victory. That was the group stages though and it meant nothing now.


With six games of football already under their belt the two teams would need to summon one last burst of energy to ensure they would be picking up winners and not runners-up medals in the presentation. The game itself was relatively sedate as the amount of football and the Mallorca sun was taking its toll on some tired legs and bodies.


It was perhaps no surprise that at half-time and then again at full-time we were no closer to knowing who would be lifting the inaugural Mallorca tournament trophy as we were locked at 0-0. The stalemate also looked like putting pay to Chris Aldred's hopes of finishing the tournament as top goalscorer but nevertheless he had had a fine day with a return of 8 goals.


We were into Golden Goal extra time and if we were still unable to find a goal then this Plate Final would be decided by a penalty shoot-out. It looked odds on that penalties would be needed until the games decisive moment arrived. A goalmouth scramble led to Ian Watts bundling the ball over the line to send the FC Dukesfield side into raptures. By contrast, Inter Urmum looked inconsolable having put so much effort into their campaign and particularly this final. They should not be down though as they added a great deal to this tournament and sure success will come to them in future tournaments.
