On June 7 2014, The Shanghai Lions FC clinched the Premier League Championship with a 6-0 win over Japan. DIB FC held to a 3-3 draw versus ReUnited. Oranje beat Metro 2-0. In the First Division the Shanghai Vikings FC all but secured Premier League promotion with 6-0 win over Cosmos. In 4 matches 18 goals were scored.
In the Premier League, the Shanghai Lions FC were up against Shanghai Japan FC in Century Park. It was D-Day for the Lions as it was championship match for them. A win would seal it but there was more at stake as they could end the season undefeated for the first time and in doing so tying the Shooters record. From the kick-off the Lions looked sharp and hungry, creating several opportunities but failed to find the net. However, when the game advanced it became clear that they would not give many opportunities to Japan either. Daniel Isaacs broke the deadlock on a fast counter to open the score taking a 1-0 Lions lead. Soon after that Allan Mendel doubled the score to 2-0 then Romain Haution made it 3-0 at halftime.
Despite the sizzling heat and a 3-0 lead the Lions didn’t hold back and kept pushing for more goals. It’s the Lions trademark to always continue to play football and try for more until the final whistle. In the 2nd half they scored three more goals via Azzeddine Takouloufa, Matthieu Witkowski and another goal from Daniel Isaacs for a final 6-0 score. Man of the match honors went to Romain Haution. It was the Lions second consecutive Premier League Championship with an incredible undefeated run where they scored 81 goals and only conceded 14. Congratulations to Freek Boelen’s Lions. Freek: “Next season we are going for the treble and start another football dynasty.” All in all a great result with a great run. Cheers boys!
