After a fiery match in Round 2 that resulted in a draw, the battle between Los Desperados and Alliance FC was set to be another top-tier competition.
Los Desperados opened the scoring with a long-range strike inside the first minute by captain Douglas How Kong Fah.
Both teams play regularly for their respective campuses - Los Desperados considered the best team at Clayton while Alliance FC are said to be the best of Caulfield, making the rivalry even more intense.
A dink over the head of an Alliance defender on 4 minutes found the head of a Los Desperados striker, slotting it to give them a 2-0 early lead.
Winning themselves a corner soon after, a centring ball from Los Desperados' How Kong Fah deflected off the keeper and into the goals to increase their lead further.
Alliance FC raked their way back to a 2-3 deficit with five minutes to go, but How Kong Fah claimed his hat-trick with just three minutes left and put it beyond doubt.
A rough tackle on him soon after as he broke past the Alliance defence in the final minute resulted in a free kick just outside the area, a quick pass onto his teammate allowing them to take the game out with a 5-2 lead and propelling them into the finals.
Los Desperados will face The Salty Dawgs in the Grand Final, who had a comfortable win over Amigos de Shabs.
