Posted On 17th February 2017

17th February 2017:  At the Challenge I in Cascais we had a full day of hockey with a lot of good games.

The Tournament opened with a great display from Pisa from Italy and Mladost from Croatia, it was a very tight game with a lot of chances for both sides, Pisa had the best of the game and won 3-0.

In the second game of the day the Bulgarian team Akademic beat Toplice from Slovenia by the same score  3-0. 

The 3rd game of the day saw the hosts Lisbon Casuals take on Dowlais. The venue was full and much to their delight the hosts won  5-0. 

The best game of the day was about to come!  The Italians stepped up for a second time on the day to face Elektrostal from Russia. A hard fought game Russians finding their way into the Italian D and the back of the net early in the game. However the Russians prevailed in a exciting game full of action and goals.  The game ended 8-4 for Elektrostal.

Incredibly in the afternoon session almost all the teams that had won the first match lost the second, and vice verse. The day ended with 5 of the 7 teams on  5 points! The battle is on…
