In their last two indoor league matches, the Men began with a draw against Futebol Benfica yesterday evening.  After pulling back to 2-3 right on halftime, the Casuals came back strongly in the second half with 2 quick goals to take a 4-3 lead. But their opponents equalised, to make the final score 4-4.

The team looked a little jaded at the beginning of this afternoon’s game against Carris and were 0-3 down after 5 minutes. Despite settling down, they were still 3-6 down at half time, but then fought back after the break with 2 goals. With chances for both sides, including a Casuals shot coming back off the post and a penalty corner to them in the last minute, Carris hung on for a 6-5 win. But, winning both the second halves of their matches, this young team has shown a marked improvement over the last month.

In the other Casuals fixture this afternoon, the Veterans drew their outdoor match against Belenenses 1-1.
