Great Tournament, great fun, looking forward for more!
Sunday afternoon the Vets team played Spabo Vets from The Netherlands.
A very even game with some great saves by our GK Vitor Rosa, the Casuals manage to win 1-0 from a rebound shot by Jerry Harris, so soft that goal-line technology would have been needed if it wasn’t for the hawkeye vision of the umpire Hans Kodde.
An impressive, at least in quantity, parliament of Vets turned out on Saturday to play Casa Pia. Before the match a small presentation of some hockey balls was made to Casa Pia which were gratefully received. The heat made for a sluggish start to the game and the Vets went one nil down after one of Kai Wenzel’s feet came between the ball and the goal, leading to a successful Casa Pia penalty flick. Several opportunities were created and missed by the Casuals but eventually Cat Ward managed to equalise the scoreline, flicking a rebound ball over the keeper, followed by a sweet strike from Steve Fernandes to put the Vets in the lead.
In the second half, with a little more shade, the Vets were able to take a bit more control of the game although umpteen chances went begging and only one of Herman Green’s many shots found its way over the goal-line, mistakes he made up for at the bar post-match. Some passionate play was calmly contained by the unruffleable umpires Joe Kodde and Ray Borrow. Casa Pia played with good spirit on and off the pitch. Final result 3-1.
