CAAF Alte “A” (Por)


KPMG WFC and CAAF Alte “A” met in the very first game of Group A with the English side running out 3-1 winners on that occasion. Both teams had now played six games and so required both skill and stamina to burn as they entered their 7 th contest of the day.

In a game that had the watching galleries enthralled it was tooth'n'nail, hammer'n'tong, end to end and a whole manner of other clichés for most of the game before the deadlock was finally broken. KPMG WFC in a rare lapse of concentration (maybe through tiredness?) allowed Michaela Lopez to drag two players out of the middle and leave her strike partner a simple tap-in, unmarked at the back post. There was nothing that the KPMG WFC ‘keeper could do as the ball was struck home from a yard.

It's an old adage in football that you are never safe at 1-0 which probably explains why CAAF Alte “A” continued to attack. This policy paid dividends as they sealed victory and the Plate Trophy with a second goal. Perhaps it was only fitting that their second goal was scored by Michaela Lopez – surely one of the stars of the tournament.

Congratulations to CAAF Alte “A” and commiserations to KPMG WFC who had performed so well during the Albufeira Fives and were a credit to the tournament.
