Lions need just one point to clinch their first SIFL title
Its looking good for the lions after 15 games and 3 more to go we need just one point to get our first SIFL title ! It has been an amazing season so far with 14 wins, 1 draw and 82 goals scored and 17 conceded +65 goal difference. To put it in perspective DIB (who are 2nd) are 8 points behind with a goal difference + 35; the Shooters (3rd) are 10 points behind with a goal difference of + 23 & old enemy Azzurri (4th) are 21 points behind with a goal difference of +2 !
Before our game against the Dutch we saw a dramatic game DIB vs Shooters / A draw would have given us the title but at half time the Shooters were leading 1-3 / it was interesting to hear the shooters coach telling his players at the break that they should be proud of their performance……not sure that’s was the right thing to do as the second half they imploded completely and lost the game 4-3 !
We played the Dutch who were battling for relegation and we knew we cannot afford any slip up now ! With four goals in each half we gave them their largest defeat of the season and with an alert Dim we kept a clean sheet. It was good to see Chris scoring a goal after his long lasting injury and my father concluded after the game that the Dutch can’t play football !
On April the 13th we are going to make it happen one point against the Vikings will bring us the title or if DIB drop points vs the Azzurri before our game it will be over as well. We hope to see all Lions supporters at Waigaoqiao 1500 pm kick off to help us making this the best day of our life !
The Sunday Lions are still in the running of their 8th SPL title ! with a narrow but hard fought 1-0 win over Japan they need to win their last three games to clinch the title.
Great times for the Lions who as well have announced their first ever international tournament the “Shanghai Lions Cup” to be held on 7 & 8 September !
Hope to see all of you on the 13th of April !
Go lions Go
