Sept 29 – Great start for Men’s Team

DSCF8247Lisbon Casuals Men’s team played the first league match of their new season against Viso today. In persistent rain at the Estádio Nacional, they opened the scoring when a finely judged diagonal ball to the far post was converted with a spectacular diving tip-in in the 8th minute. The same player was on hand to make it 2-0 when the keeper’s save allowed a close range shot from the rebound, but shortly before half time the visitors pulled a goal back from a loose ball in the circle.

It was 15 minutes into the second half before a fierce Casuals cross into the circle found a defender’s stick for an own goal to extend the lead to 3-1. An excellent free hit from just outside the Viso 25 found an attacker at the post for a cool tip-in and, despite several chances going begging, the final score remained 4-1 to the Casuals.
