The first of the Plate Quarter-Finals saw DHL Prague Red take a well earned rest. They were straight through to the semi-finals as their 3 rd placed finish in Group A meant they were straight through to the Semi-Finals with a BYE.

The remaining games were all 5th versus 4th clashes. Joining DHL Prague Red in the top half of the draw were JNJ Global Services and Hays. We were therefore guaranteed a Czech semi-final and, in turn, a Czech finalist. JNJ Global Services will consider themselves unfortunate not to have picked up a point as they were drawn in a particularly tough group. Hays on the other hand had managed to taste victory and were looking to taste victory again when they raced into a 2-0 lead in this game. They were to hold on to the lead and make it through to the semi-finals in a game that ultimately finished 3-1. The main architect of JNJ Global Services downfall was Marc Folkard with a hat-trick for the Hays team.

Real Sociable Lads and Reading Royals were the teams coming head to head in quarter-final 3. Reading Royals finished 4 th in their group so would enter the game as favourites. In reality though there was very little in the game in the first half. Three goals were scored and Reading Royals edged it thanks to Nick Brown and James Morrison. In the second half Reading Royals extended their lead to take a grip on the game as Nick Brown went on to claim a hat-trick and James Dalley scored his first goal of the day. Real Sociable Lads came into it late on but they had given themselves too much to do. Ian Butler scoring all 3 of the Real Sociable Lads goals in this game.

The final quarter-final would see Harp Hospada play AON Top Guns. AON Top Guns given their group record were probably up their as second favourites behind DHL Prague Red. They would expect to beat Harp Hospada and they did so comfortably. The game provided a great opportunity to boost their forwards chances in the top goalscorer competition. Chris Mould aided his cause with 5 goals and there was a hat-trick for John O'Brien. Leon Barber scored twice, Matt Doran and Laurence Smith one each as AON Top Guns swept their Czech opponents aside with an easy 12-0 win.
