Shanghai Lions Football Club

Lions one step closer to their 10th SPL title !



Luckily the rain stopped on Sunday and the pitch in Jinqiao was great ! Just before the game started, we came to know that Century Park Fc, our title contender, had won, so we needed to get a result out of our game versus the Marlins.

The Marins were missing some players but got the help from some good youngsters ! Both defense played well in the first part of the game and the goal keeper were not tested. The lions controlled the midfield in the first half and try to get a goal. it was a fast break from Az to Tevz who was not selfish and let Tomas finish the job and he gave us a 1-0 lead.

In the 2nd half, we should have scored at least two goals in the first 15 min. all what was needed was a simple tip in. As we didn’t finish, it the game slipped away the Marlins got more confident and got several free kicks but couldn’t score either ! A super run from Kevin the dj put him one on one with the goalie but him not being selfish passed the ball to Tomas and he finished it off 2-0. Much joy for Tomas boys as papa scored !!

With tired legs, we were looking forward to the final whistle but a poor clearance of our defense let the actual Marlins goalie Dale become a hero as he scored to make it 2-1. In the end, that was the final score and now we can clinch the title on Sunday we have 8 goals better goal difference 3 points more and one game more to play.

We hope that all Lions supporters and friends will all come to support our team on Sunday 1430 at Century Park and hopefully have a nice celebration after the game !


Cheers Freek
