were at the 2014 Mallorca Tournament Cup Semi-Finals
stage and from the 20 teams who started the day
we were down to the final 4. There were still
2 different nationalities in with a chance of
victory and with one all-Spanish Semi-Final and
one all-English Semi-Final we knew the Cup Final
would be England versus Spain. However, which
teams could progress to represent their nation
in that Final?
up was Palma Select against Universidad Palma.
The “home” team carried a record of 3 wins, 2
draws and no defeats into this Semi-Final. They
had scored 10 goals along the way and conceded
just 3. The “away” team had 3 wins, 1 draw (winning
on penatlies) and 1 defeat to show for their efforts.
They had scored 22 goals up to this point and
conceded 5. Could the superior firepower send
Universidad Palma into their first Cup Final?
they were to progress they would need to summon
up all that goalscoring prowess as they found
themselves 2-0 down by half-time as Misho Gerchev
and Stoyko Dimitrov had put Palma Select in charge.
After the break Universidad Palma hit back through
Hector Montilla Roca but it was too little too
late as they slipped to a 2-1 defeat.
was the end of the road for Universidad Palma
today but it was an impressive performance. Palma
Select had a Cup Final to prepare for.
