Oct. 21 – Ladies win

Last night LCHC ladies won 3-1 against Wellington College Belfast.

Lisbon Casuals Hockey Club

A lovely game with both sides doing everything to attack the circle. The 1-1 score at half time was a true sign of the perfect balance between the two teams with the LCHC goal being scored by our youngest player Marina Gancedo.

In the second half the more experienced LCHC team found their second goal through Rita de Sousa, but the best moment of the night was reserved for the end: a perfectly injected short corner by Carolina Oliveira, but not so well stopped. However the loose ball found the stick of Raquel Freitas who only had time for a backhand shot and, with the ball on it’s way to goal, Angela Lima managed a beautiful mid-air deflection sending the ball straight into the top left angle, and making everyone around the pitch cheer loudly!

Lisbon Casuals Ladies would like to thank Browns Sports&Leisure Club for making this game possible despite all the difficulties, and a special thanks to the Wellington College Belfast player Olivia, who played for LCHC in the first half. Thank you very much and see you guys next year.
