Lisbon Casuals Men’s First Indoor Match

Lisbon Casuals Men’s team played Casa Pia at the São Domingos de Rana pavilion last Sunday.

The day started with our team managers, James and André making all the temperature checks of both teams on arrival to guarantee that the Covid measures where met.

After the all clear was given, the match was allowed to begin with the starting line up of: João Miguel in goal, John and Rafa in defence, Joe in the midfielf and Muhammad and our captain Steve as forwards.

Our coach Paulo proposed a new tactical setup that was working well, and we frustrated our opponent who couldn’t find gaps in our defense.

Casa Pia’s first shot at goal was blocked by Rafa but unfortunately it came off his backstick and a penalty stroke was awarded. At the penalty stroke, João Miguel managed to get a foot to the ball but didn’t stop it from going in the goal.

We had a couple of attacking opportunities from John and Steve but without managing a result.

In the second quarter Casa Pia score another two goals from penalty corners.

At half time we discussed the need to stop our opponent from getting penalty corners and how we could create more chances of our own.

And we did manage to create chances and put Casa Pia under pressure. Although 0-3 down we pressed forward and Fred, at full stretch intersepted a pass which landed sweetly on Joe’s stick who carried the ball in to the circle and found Sepi at the second post, who calmly tapped the ball in the goal.

Watch: Sepi’s 1st Goal

With new energy we brought the game to our opponent who struggled with Verjinder’s bursts of speed and skill up front.

João Miguel was keeping us in the game with crucial saves, and then out of nowhere, on the counter attack Steve passed to Muhammad in the circle who found the smallest of gap’s and put the ball through the kepper’s legs to Sepi, who again found himself in the correct position and scored a goal.

But, Casa Pia being an experienced team composed themselves and  where more clinical with their shots and scored again from a penalty corner.

We had fewer scoring opportunities but still managed to earn a couple of penalty corners for ourselves, but couldn’t convert them.

Towards the end of the match, tired legs where showing from the Casuals boys and Casa Pia score three more times to close the match, ending in a 3-7 loss to Casa Pia.

Our next match is scheduled for the 24th of January, away against Futebol Benfica.

Thanks Jerry for being our camara man. 


Inglorious finish for the Men

This saturday the Men Played the best game since the beginning of the season, the game agaisn’t Ramaldense F.C. was a game that we really wanted to win, and did everything we could to do so.

With a completely control of the game the opponent, agaisn’t all odds, scored first after a poorly defense from our veteran goalie João Miguel, the team was affected by this undeserved goal, but little by little got change after chance to equalise the score board.

The lack of experience inside the opponent circle didn’t allow us to score the goal.

At the half-time we were loosing 0-1.

On the second half the young men pushed really hard and got the well deserved goal by Thomas Machado. This was not enough, the coach ask for a victory, and this was what we wanted. Our Goalie, redimed himself with several safes preventing them to score more goals.

The opponent got the second goal through a Short corner, with our captain was very unlucky  trying to get the ball out of the circle letting the forward to touch the ball first into the net.

The team didn’t give up and pushed again very hard, michael Kodde, Ruben Campos and John Harrison were most of the times successfull keeping them away from the circle, and every time the got a shot on goal the goalie saved it. LCHC attacking waves were constant but with no result… Close to the end on the only mistake of our defense during this period the opponent scored again closing the score on 1-3.

Not all the times the best team wins… the hard work we’ve been doing is starting to show results! This is the way!

Let the indoor season begin!

Black ‘Saturday’ para os Homens e S15

This Saturday two games were played, both resulted in heavy defeats.

S15 lost by 19-0 against a strong team of Clube Futebol Benfica.

The men moved to st. Maria da Feira to face the C.F.U.Lamas and they left  with a defeat by 11-1. The experience spoke louder and it was not possible to do more, this was, so far the worst game that the LC played, not for the result but for the lack of concentration and low level of hockey that until then had been quite good.

But as not everything is bad, the lonely goal of the LC was scored by John Harrison, becoming the youngest player to Score in a men Championship (14 years)

What a start for the ‘young’ men!

Começou a época de Campo para a equipa sénior do LC, equipa composta maioritariamente por S18, apresentou-se como provavelmente a equipa mais nova deste campeonato.

Nada que assusta-se os pequenos guerreiros do sol. Com um jogo claramente dominado pela equipa adversária na primeira parte, mas sempre controlado pelo LC, parece contraditório, mas passo a explicar, o domínio da equipa adversária foi oferecido por nós, onde o principal objectivo foram as marcações defensivas sem nos preocupar-nos com o ataque.

O G.D.Viso teve sempre muitas dificuldades em penetrar na nossa área e apenas com um erro na construção de jogo (bola de saída) é que conseguiram chegar ao 1-0.

Com o jogo a seguir sempre o mesmo sentido, muita bola para o G.D.Viso mas sempre sem conseguir chegar ao golo.

O resultado chega ao 2-0 através de uma grande penalidade muito mal assinalada.

Na segunda parte o jogo mudou um pouco pois arrisca-mos mais no ataque, a perder por 2-0 tentámos chegar ao golo, sempre com alguma dificuldade pois ainda faltam rotinas de jogo.

Tivemos duas grandes oportunidades para marcar, uma por Philipp Kampschroer e outra pelo estreante Aires Tulio.

Neste jogo houve ainda muitas estreias: John Harrison, Vicente Mourão, Diogo Santos, Alfredo Burnay, Pedro Berga, Luke Ellett e ainda o grande jogador que se estreou como delegado e treinador-adjunto Adérito Merêncio!

Muito bom jogo que serviu para motivar e dar experiência a todos este novos jogadores do ritmo de um campeonato sénior, mais batalhas virão a começar este sábado contra o C.F.Benfica no Jamor às 17h30, Apareçam para apoiar os novos guerreiros do sol.
