Lions U18 beat DEQ in a tight game

Last saturday Lions U18 were facing DEQ. It’s what we can call a high level game. Both team were quite organized in the attackS and disciplined in defense. Hard to find a door open. Lions took the lead with a goal of Matty facing the keep after few chances missed though. 3min later, a long cross from the right back of DEQ found the left wing to control and score the 1-1. Not much happened after that.

Second half started well and both keepers were quite busy and the technical level was really good as well. Finally, DEQ took the lead 2-1 after a counter attack on a Lion’s freek kick. 2 vs 3 and a strong shoot that the keeper couldn’t handle and made a small mistake. Lions reacted right away with corner and Jason got the header. 2-2. And it’s Finally Matty 5 minutes after that try a long distance shot, keeper was unlucky and made a small mistake as well that helped Lions to take the lead. 5 min to go and DEQ got 2 chances to score and win the game. End up in the post for the 1st one with a nice movement, 2nd one was in, but Noel our keeper deflect it in the post as well and the unlucky DEQ girl couldn’t push it in the goal.


Really interesting game from both side. Congrats to Dulwich Earthquakes and Lions for this fairplay game.
