Saturday 1 December: we lost 1-4 to CFB Ladies during game 4 so it was going to be interesting to see how much progress we had made since then. Could we possibly manage to turn the result around into a second win in such a short period of time?
The U15 had their second game of the season against a very experienced CFB and again performed well. Whilst most of the CFB team (including their key players) will be too old for U15 next year, ALL of our team will be eligible demonstrating the youth and potential we have!!
We did not have a goalkeeper and still need to identify somebody for the future (please everyone, help us find a new candidate ?) and this inevitably impacted on the result, but the team fought a spirited battle to the end and it is clear we are making progress. Well done guys & gals!
So we have lots of potential and lots to work on but if we can maintain this trajectory and dedication then we will make great progress by the end of this season!
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)
