Dec. 14 – U15 Won against Belenenses Ladies

A brilliant win for the U15s against the former ladies national indoor champions Belenenses, The best game this team ever played: despite the early concession of a strong goal by Belenenses from a short corner, the young ones pushed forward and got the equalizer through Vicente Mourão just before the half-time. Diogo Lima and Marina Gancedo were electric in the LCHC attack, creating numerous opportunities; in the defence John Harrison was a gigantic wall stopping almost all the Belenenses ladies’ attacks. In the second half Belenenses, needing a win to ensure their presence in the ladies national finals, started to push forward: but it was LCHC that controlled the game with a brilliant defence and well organized strategy, and all Belenenses’ attempts were stopped by our ‘Little Giant’  Maarten Green who is becoming a serious case study!! The goal of the day was scored by the usual suspect, Vicente Mourão, from a short corner against LCHC saved by Maarten, Vicente recovered the ball and went straight for goal, dribbling through the entire Belenenses team and scored!!  The 3rd goal came from a brilliant move starting with Kim (another wall in defence) straight to Diogo Lima, and then to Marina Gancedo who closed the score on a fantastic 3-1.
