Lions Veterans and Youth win their last games of the season !
Our season is coming to an end and we were happy that we could “just” finish our games. Heavy rain created havoc and fields were turned into swimming pools !
First up in the morning were the Veterans in their new Morton’s outfit playing against the Emerald FC. Emeral proved a good side with good youth players and two strong South-American stikers. It stayed 0-0 for a long time until Fred finally tested the goalkeeper and it became obvious that their stand in goal keeper wouldn’t have a pleasant morning. Soon we were 2-0 up with another goal from Fred. A “cheap” free kick let the Emerald come back 2-1. Now we got a free kick and our president also tested the goalie who saw the ball flying in just between the goalies hands ! Soon Charles who is feeling at easy in the veteran team now understood that sending missiles to the goalie would work and believe it or not he scored a hat-trick ! We had a good laugh about Simon’s corners as the ended up in the club house instead of in the box, he blamed it on the wind…… ! New comer Remi scored on his debut after a good corner from the President. In the end a solid 7-3 win and still unbeaten in the league !
Second up were the Lions U17 vs Japan U17. Strong wind and heavy rain made it hard to play normal football. Our boys started strong with good passing and ball possession. Ryo scored 1-0 after a fast combination thru the middle. FC Japan came back with a lucky goal and one good goal on a counter attack. Sean made it 2-2 after a free kick. The lions had to fight hard in the second third against the wind but managed to get away without conceding a goal. The last third we showed our strength and spirit and scored a fantastic goal by Ryo after great combination in the midfield in the end it proved to be the winner. A very good team performance and a great way to end the season !
In the end a good weekend for the Lions and now one more BIG Game on Saturday for the Lions to make our season very special by winning both leagues twice in a row ! Hope to see many people to come and watch us and support us at Century Park 1300 kick off against Japan !
Cheers Happy Freek
