We were down to our final 4 teams in the Plate competition. The first Semi-Final would see St Paul's College Old Boys 1 st Team versus Old Sedcopians Legends. These were the two teams records today:

 

Old Sedcopians Legends: Won 2, Lost 4, For 10, Against 15.

St Paul's College Old Boys 1st Team: Won 2, Drawn 1, Lost 3, For 12, Against 14.

 

On paper the two teams looked fairly evenly matched. One of those victories for Old Sedcopians Legends had been against St Paul's College Old Boys 3rd Team which they won 6-0. A repeat against the 1st Team would do them just fine.

 

St Paul's College Old Boys usually came alive in the Plate competition as in both the 2014 Amsterdam Fives and 2015 Bratislava Fives they transformed into a different beast. Like the sniff of blood to a shark, the smell of a Plate victory to St Paul's College Old Boys awakened their competitive spirits.

 

It was St Paul's College Old Boys 1st Team who struck first through James West and when he added a second in the first half St Paul's College Old Boys 1 st Team were on their way. At 2-0, could Old Sedcopians Legends mount a comeback? Their task was made all the more difficult when St Paul's College Old Boys 1st Team stretched their lead to 3-0 and booked their place in a third successive Plate Final.

 

Old Sedcopians Legends journey was over in the tournament. We say a big thank you to them for supporting the tournament and also congratulations to them for their 11-a-side friendly win over Son Gual on the Thursday night.

 
 
 

The second Semi-Final was The Average Joes versus We've Got Wood. Who could join St Paul's College Old Boys 1st Team in the Plate Final?

 

The Average Joes had just enjoyed a 3-1 win in the Quarter-Finals and would this spur them on to bigger and better things as this competition progressed. We've Got Wood were looking good today with 4 wins out of 6 as they bid to reach their first Plate Final. This time last year they experienced disappointment as they were knocked out, 2-0, by 2Goals1Cup.

 

It was We've Got Wood who forged ahead when Mark Hall put them 1-0 up in the first half. It was We've Got Wood's 18th goal of the day and they had a goal difference for the day of +11 at this stage a record that would not look out of place in the Cup. It was the form that suggested they would be on their way to the final.

 

That goal difference was dented a little in the second half when Paul Olds scored for the Average Joes but a Ross Lawson goal ensured it would be We've Got Wood who would stay on top. At 2-1, it was We've Got Wood who were victorious at the final whistle.

 

The Average Joes could take a well-earned rest after their exploits today. The team was travelling on a stag weekend and we thank them for choosing our tournament to mark the occasion. It was great to meet you all.
