teams came to do battle at the 2013 Lisbon Tournament
in the open age category, two remained – CSB Stars
and HS Decor. The only thing we knew at this stage
was the fact it would be a Portuguese winner and
a Portuguese clean sweep of all titles as the
Plate and Veterans titles' had already been claimed.
it be HS Décor or CSB Stars lifting the
winners' trophy aloft? Both teams had played in
Group B earlier in the day and on that occasion
HS Décor won 2-1 having been a goal behind.
We were hoping for an equally gripping and close
encounter for the Cup Final.
first half belonged to HS Decor as they struck
first in this one and led 2-0 at the break. They
were firmly in control and well on course for
their 7 th consecutive win that would make them
worthy winners of the title. Could CSB Stars come
back and create an upset? In short – no. HS Décor
played out the remainder of the second half with
little alarm and looked more likely to extend
their lead as they soaked up the pressure and
tried to hit their opponents on the break. Final
winners of the 2013 Lisbon Tournament – HS Decor.
congratulations also go to Groundforce Lisboa
in the Plate competition, Sao Marcos in the Veterans
competition and Jon Stead as tournament top goalscorer.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank
all our teams who participated in what was a great
day's competition. It was a pleasure to host you
all and we hope to see you all again at a tournament
