The palace boys and United eliminated Bilbao FC and Dortmund FC respectively in the quarterfinal games.
The palace boys beat Bilbao FC 1-0 in the quarterfinal, whilst United defeated Dortmund FC 2-1 in the quarterfinal prior to their Monday’s crucial semifinal clash.
The palace boys advanced to the final after notching in a single goal against United to snatch a place in the final.
United responded back for an equalizer and created some goal-scoring opportunities but could not break through the palace boys’ solid defence line thus the game ended 1-0 in favour of Buckingham.
United will now switch their attention to the league competition following their exit from the knockout competition after losing to Buckingham 1-0 in the semifinal.
