Team SMO had a busy morning covering two well contested semi-finals at Hull University for the Munro Cup.
In the first of the semi-finals, Springhead Tigers lead to a comfortable 2-0 lead with an outstanding free kick in the first half, and a half volley to finish the game in the second half – both courtesy of Mike Pecora. FC Cumberland played well but had limited chances to score throughout.
The second semi final proved a much closer affair with Sunday 2nd division (and a well supported) Hanson Electrical Afc facing Sunday Premier League side Three Tuns. There was nothing between the two teams with Three Tuns scoring first in the second half.
A great equaliser by Hanson’s Craig Sedman brought the game level. The game was sure to come to extra time, concluding only with a controversial penalty awarded to Three Tuns in the 89th minute, crushing Hanson who had been strong throughout.
Well done to Springhead Tigers and Three Tuns who will face each other at the final on Sunday 1st May at the Roy West Centre.
