The surprise of the weekend was the U15 winning agaisnt the Ladies at a ‘home derby’. The Ladies dominated the first half of the game with perfect ball circulation, giving their young opponents almost no chance to attack the ladies’ area. And the first goal was perfectly scored by U15 player Marije making her debut for the Ladies.
But the second half was a completely different game, with the Ladies losing control of the game and no longer executing ball circulation, while the U15s started to grow in confidence and achieved their first goal by Diogo Lima early in the second half.
The game at this stage was equal; both teams could have scored goals but it was the U15 that started to run away on the score board with 2 goals from John Harrison and another from Vicente Mourão, reaching an amazing 4-1.
The ladies weren’t happy with this and their captain Angela pushed the team and scored 2 goals in a very short period of time, but all the effort was in vain as the umpire’s whistle went with a final score for the U15s of 4-3!
