second Semi-Final was Inter Urmum versus CSF.
The CSF have an unequalled record in eurofootballfives.com
Plate competitions appearing in 5 finals, winning
4 and in 2009 completed a hat-trick of Plate
titles in the Algarve Open, Amsterdam Fives
and Valencia Fives. Could they get the win here
and take them to their 6th final?
lot would depend on which CSF team showed up.
If they put in a performance like Rounds 1,
2 and 5 you would fancy Inter Urmum but should
they rediscover their Round 3 and Round 4 form
they would be a tough team to beat. For their
part Inter Urmum had proved to be a more consistent
proposition throughout the day.
Urmum started off the game in the ascendency
and they capitalized by going into the interval
two goals to the good as Marc Plumley struck
twice. Ordinarily you may say Inter Urmum were
well on their way to the Final but never count
this CSF side out. Even in the games they won
in the group phase they foundthemselves 3-1
and 2-0 down at half-time. Could they make it
another second half comeback?
Urmum were determined for this not to happen
and showed a ruthless streak in the second half
as they put their opposition away. Marc Plumley
went on to complete his hat-trick and, not to
be outdone, Chris Aldred popped up to score
a hat-trick himself which took him on to 8 goals
for the tournament and a contender to be the
top goalscorer. There was time for Alex Thomas
to score a consolation to give him a great personal
return of 6 goals for the tournament but he
would not be adding to it as the CSF were out.
Urmum would progress and they would meet FC
Dukesfield in the Plate Final.
