Sunday Lions on a record run !
On Sunday we first had a game for the Lions U17 team against a well organized Japans team FC Ferie ! We could only get 9 players for the game which made it hard as we played with 9 on a 11-aside field and on top the Japanese side had 17 players ! Goals were flying in everywhere on both side and the final score was a 10-8 win for the Lions !
After that the Men’s Lions took on Super 48 a Japanese team lower ranked in the SPL. Idea was to score goals and not to concede as goal difference is important at the end of the season. It was 24 degrees ! We started well with a quick goal of captain Michael and another one by penalty converted by Nicolas. However after that we adjusted to the weather and the opponent and started to take it easy. Super 48 was quite happy with only 2-0 behind at half time and pushed for a goal in the second half. The scored a well deserved goal and it woke us up to be honest. Fred and Yosh who are both leaving Shanghai (see picture) said good bye with a goal and our youngster Sean showed us how to shoot with great strike. Final score 5-1 win and that was our 15th win of the season and since December 2012 after 26 games we are still unbeaten ! We have 6 games to go and I guess enough motivation to keep our unbeaten run and to focus on the title race !
We hope to see all Lions at the training on Wednesday ! We need to be sharp and fit for the last games of the season !
