was followed by an improved performance although
they still came off second best. Shabbier
were already through to the Cup but that
did not effect their competitive spirit. There
was to be no mercy shown to the CSF and they ended
up with the biggest win of the day scoring 11
along the way without reply. MP Matthews helped
himself to a double hat-trick and Sam Gabriel
scored twice. Craig Matthews, Luke Adamson and
on own goal further increased CSF Oz's woes. CSF

the Cup. They showed an awful lot of fighting
spirit as the changed the momentum of this game

back to 3-2 and that's how it finished.

Cup competition. Art Hosteleria would have to
settle for the Plate in search of glory.
