Spot the Ball - Semi Final & Quarter Final

Post by RalphCoatesComb » Sat Apr 25, 2020 11:54 pm

The Semi-Final of The End of Season Cup and Quarter-Final of The Michael Duff Trophy feature images from our annihilation of Sunderland in December 2016. The Ref was Graham Scott and the match is particularly notable because Andre Gray scored The Clarets’ first Premier League Hat-Trick. Even though the game was played just over 3 years ago, just look at the names of those involved who have since left t’Turf…

Darikwa; Heaton; Keane; Ward; Boyd; Marney; Defour; Arfield; Gray; Vokes; Bamford; Robinson and O’Neill

Selections MUST be made by 18.00 hrs (Or 6pm if you’re in Harle Syke) Tuesday 28 April.

Good Luck everyone !

Wow! Caught me and Spot on the hop there! Out for our constitutional! Could get the Michael Duff Trophy Semifinal in before Weekend then run the Finals alongside each other. Sounds like a plan!

Unable to give anything away cos we’re out on the field but that was a low scoring affair! Some very tight games again. Spot says we should make the End of Season Cup a two-legged match. We can then marry up the two Cups at the Weekend. I like that Spot :D

Ref has blown early. Here are the results:

PLEASE CHECK YOUR SCORES

Image 1

E9 / E10

Image

Given that almost everyone was looking at it, and it covered two squares, no one found the ball. There were several near misses.

Image 2

A10

Image

This was a pretty diabolical one, even though it was obviously up in the air.

Image 3

A9 / A10

Image

Yet another in the air shots. No one found it. No one came close.

Image 4

B6 / B7 / C6 / C7

Image

HunterST and Bobinho found this one. Surprising more points were not scored on this, given that it covered 4 squares.

Image 5

A8 /A9

Image

Yet another air shot. HunterST and JohnMac came close and it was probably the shot that saw HunterST into the final.

Now the scores

End of Season Cup

Firthy 5 Goobs 7

HunterST 10 Dazzler 8

You do have to feel for Dazzler. He would have gone into the final had he drawn Firthy or Goobs!

Michael Duff Trophy

Colburn Claret 6 Redbeard 7 (What a close match)

JohnMac 8 Steve F 7 (Another tight affair)

Joe14 3 Evensteadiereddie 6 (Joe left his shooting boots in his locker)

Bobinho 7 The Doge 1 (Typically Bobinho, pulled one out the fire when it counted)

Again, you have to have some sympathy for Steve F who would have gone through in the Joe14 Evensteadiereddie game.

The Draw for the Semi Final of the Michael Duff Trophy is:

Redbeard v JohnMac

Evensteadiereddie v Bobinho

Matches will commence tomorrow (Wednesday) and conclude on Saturday at 18.00 hrs.

The End of Season Cup will be a two legged match. The first leg is tomorrow, alongside the Michael Duff Trophy

THE GRAND FINAL WILL BE THIS SUNDAY AT 15.00hrs (3.0pm) FOR BOTH THE DUFFER'S CUP AND THE END OF SEASON CUP

If anyone can't make 15.00hrs on Sunday, please speak up NOW !

In order to build up the tension of the Big Match, images will be revealed one by one on Sunday.

Very well played Hunter...The better player won.
You've come with a great run when it really mattered.
Looking forward to the final between yourself & Goobs...should be a cracker.

Well done Goobs, now go on and win the final. Disappointed to go out with such a poor score, think Spot saved the hard ones for the semi.

Thanks for a great game. 8-)
