Lions stay on top of the SIFL after a solid win!


With only one substitute but with a very motivated team we had a good game versus the Beavers last Saturday. What we did very well was to dictate the speed of the game throughout the entire 90 minutes. In the past we would make the mistake to slow down our own game when we played lower ranked teams and found it difficult to score goals. Not this time within one minute we scored (it start the be a Lions trade mark to score fast !) and left the Beavers helpless. Chance after chance we created 4-0 half time but should have been 10-0 ! Second half we decided to push harder and go for the goal difference and kept the pace fast. We got some great goals ! Allan hat-trick, Benji 2, Joel 2, Danni 1, Anthony 1. It was a pity we couldn’t keep a clean sheet and conceded one goal. Its good to be disappointed with that even we won 9-1.

Three games 20 goals scored and 3 conceded (gifts) that’s plus 17 ! Yes we are on the right track but need to work even harder to stay on top and we get an excellent opportunity to test how far we are in performance level by beating the Azzurri next Saturday! Lets prepare well for this game ! Especially because its a 9:00 AM early game !


Cheers Freek
