In the match for the first place, Team Four Quarters Orange, including Simon Arber (+1), Richard Le Poer (+7) and Jack Richardson (+7), defeated Team 12 Chops with Charlie Wooldridge (+3), Roddy Williams (+6) and Jamie Morrison (+6) by scoring the deciding goal in the last seconds of the match and thus won the coveted Gold Cup.
