Match report for Palace vs Dulwich Lions

Palace,

Last saturday we had a tougher than expected game against the Dulwich Lions. I don’t know if it was because of the heat and bright sunshine but for once we had a very sluggish start.

Dulwich Lions had only 10 players to start with but it did not really show. We had more much more possession but about 15 minutes into the game it was Dulwich who managed to open the scoring as they took advantage of our static defence.

At least this setback gave us some impetus and we finally managed to put some sustained pressure on their goal. Over-optimistic long range efforts, combined with bad finishing from our strikers as well as good goal-keeping denied us for at least 25 minutes. Fortunately, Lao Cui provided his trademark goal just before the half-time whistle: he got the ball near the side line, on the left, maybe 35 metres from the goal, saw their goalkeeper off his line and took a long lobbed-shot that nicely dived into the goal. 1-1 at half time.

In the second half, despite Dulwich now playing with 11 men, we were much more dominant. Amir almost scored the goal of the season but his shot bounced back off the goal line after hitting the crossbar. Persevering was the key, and maybe just 5 minutes later, Amir finally got some rewards for his effort and scored our second goal. Shortly after that, Lao Cui got another after dribbling his way to the goal from the left side. Final score 3-1.

After the game, most of the squad went to Luga’s for some refreshments and food. Amir collected the most votes for Man-of-the-match, while myself was voted donkey for being a “brickhead”??
Cheers,
Patrick

G10: Next Palace game vs Dulwich Lions

Palace,We had a great win last Saturday, trashing Athletico 8-1. It was the most accomplished game we played for a long time. Especially good was the fact that we kept focused even when the opposition started to play dirty. Goals came from Joachim (hat trick, that’s 5 goals in 2 games played for Palace!), Charles (another hat trick) and one each from Matt and Kieran. We are now 4th in the league (see the league table).This Saturday we are playing Dulwich Lions. There are below us in the league table but have 2 games in hand. They are a good side, they are the only team to have beaten the ISB Dragons so far this season and they also drew against the French. So we can expect a tough game.This match is scheduled for Saturday, 4th of December, kick off at 1PM at the Chaoyang Stadium as usual (meet at the pitch at 12:30).Who is up for it? Please reply ASAP and don’t forget to come to training on Wednesday, 8-10pm at the Lido if you want to boost your chance to be selected.Cheers,Patrick
