Dubai earned their ticket through to the last day of this high-goal competition after defeating El Remanso 9-6. There was much anticipation for this game as Dubai are invariably worth watching and El Remanso have impressed with every league game. And this semi-final did not disappoint. Although El Remanso were trailing 5-1 at half-time, they rallied in the fourth. Charlie Hanbury put on some great runs down the Queen’s Ground, while David Stirling showed his class by keeping the Hanburys’ team in the game.
With only two goals between the two high-goal sides (7-5) at the end of the fifth, this game was still very open. This was the moment that Cambiaso decided to show the packed grandstands, enjoying some rare summer sunshine, why he has been a 10-goaler for so long. Some wonderful long passes up the ground and some fast, quick play saw the Dubai team pull away, ensuring them a place in Sunday’s final. Not surprisingly he was named Man of the Match and received his prize from the Managing Director of Cartier Ltd Francois Le Troquer.
