Nov 29 – U15 A v CFB Ladies

The U15’s A team beat the CF Benfica Ladies 5-2 on Sunday. Lisbon Casuals were the stronger team in the first half winning 3-0, with two goals score from penalty corners by captain John Harrison and, after a sneaky interception in the oppositions circle, a field goal by Diogo Santos. Solid defending from the Huijsmans sisters kept the CF Benfica Ladies from scoring.

The second half began with an immediate goal from John, again from a penalty corner. The last goal for the Lisbon Casuals was a field goal, once again put away by Jonh. Unfortunately, a couple of defensive mistakes allowed the opposition into our circle, both times resulting in goals for CF Benfica.

Next Sunday the U15 A team face the CFO Belenenses Ladies.

Nov 15 – U15 A team beat Casa Pia Ladies

Sunday saw an early 09H00 start in Belém for our U15 A team against the CP Ladies, a game where both teams played with kicking backs.

Three minutes in to the match a LC shot found a CP defenders foot on the goal line and a penalty was awarded in our favor. Captain Vicente stepped up and scored the first goal of the game. On the 11th minute of the game, John found a gap in the CP defense and dribbled through the circle to the back line and flicked the ball in to the goal, scoring the second goal of the match. A CP attack saw a near certain goal against us, but a diving save from Kim kept the ball out.

Near the end of the 1st half, another penalty was awarded to the LC, but the CP kicking back saved John’s strike, tacking us into halftime leading 0-2. The second half proved to be a bit of a stale mate, and only in the last two minutes of the game we won two short corners, both drag flicked in to the net by John.

Next Sunday Lisbon Casuals U15 A team face off Casa Pia’s U15 team which promises to be a cracker of a match!

Oct 25 – U15s Win

The U15s won their third outdoor game of the season 4-0 against CF Benfica Ladies, to pull into second position on goal difference in the SF/S-15 outdoor competition. However, starting with one player less than the opposition, without their usual defensive line-up and with the Benfica Ladies hard hitting and determined play on their home pitch, the young lads struggled to get ahead. The side adopted a more defensive line up after fifteen hard minutes and one goal from Martim Gonçalves pushed in from the left post after a scramble in their area, was all they could manage before the interval. In the second half, being more tired, they had to pass the ball around more and this actually helped their play with John and Vicente tirelessly combining in midfield to build up each attack. They found the stick of newcomer Aires Túlio several times on the right hand post and he managed to convert two to make it 3-0. A change in the short corner line brought the final goal with Vicente working the ball round to Fredric who found the goal from the right hand side with a well struck ball to make it 4-0.
