After 2 teams from Madrid, 2 Casuals teams and Belenenses took part in yesterday’s Veterans 7-a-side May Tournament, Casuals this morning beat their Madrid counterparts 7-4 in a full 11-a-side game.
This afternoon the Ladies played their final league match of the season against Belenenses. They played some fine passing hockey in the first half and reached the interval 2-0 ahead, but Belenenses scored early in the second half from a breakaway goal to reduce t0 2-1. This gave them the impetus to go on the attack but, with both sides wasting numerous penalty corner chances, Casuals eventually re-established their supremacy in the game and were rewarded with a 3rd goal from a penalty corner variation.
After Sport Club’s narrow win against Lousada yesterday, it is a shame that today’s 3-1 win leaves the Casuals in 2nd place in the final league table, 1 point behind their rivals. But they can look back at a very successful season, which includes their first ever National Indoor title.
