Shanghai Lions Football Club

Lions showed spirit but didnt get the reward agains the Marlins !



Lions versus Marlins can be considered as “El Classico of Green City ! These game are joy to play and a joy to watch. You will see two teams fighting for the win until the very end ! This season we are having a hard time in the SPL partly due to the fact that we miss a striker after Joel and Dave left who is good for 15-20 goals in a season. Dave being our SPL top scorer with 4 goals sums up our issue.  In the first half we saw an even game with both teams trying to take control of the midfield. We got several corners and with two minutes to go in the first half we scored from a corner when Dave headed the ball back on the foot of Fabie who didn’t hesitate to score ! In the second half the Marlins needed to push forward and we had to defend more and more. However the strike of Marlins striker Zhu was unstoppable 1-1.  It seemed like a fair result but when a 40 meter out left foot strike of Alex ended in the top corner as well it seemed to be harsh for the Lions. We did get a goal back after a free kick of Simon into the box ended on Patrick feet only to see the goal being disallowed for off side which was highly disputable. All though we didn’t get any points out of this game we start to play better and better and we will start to collect points in the games ahead of us  for sure !


Cheers Freek
