Aioli Purple Monkeys emerged as deserved winners on Saturday in the semi-final of the Plate as they beat Hotspurs 4-2. Things could have been a lot worse for Hotspurs however, as they found themselves 3-0 in the first 20 minutes to a rampant APM side. Hotspurs did rally well though, and despite bringing the score back to 3-2 in the closing stages, they couldn't quite find that elusive equaliser. Congratulations APM, and all the best in the final.
2 Ichi goals 1st half and a well taken JJ volley gave us a lead of 3-0. Hotspurs always turnit In when behind against us and deservedly got the game to 3-2 with a few minutes to go. Joel saved the day with a well taken shot to the bottom corner to make it 4-2 and see the monkeys reach the plate final for the first time.
