Houston Dutch Lions FC U5/U6
Player of the week: Drew West 

The players of the U5/U6 had to deal with cold, wet weather circumstances. They knew that they had to run hard in order to stay warm, and so they did. The first game was a good warm up. After the warming up they did their best to score more goals in order to win.

After the 3 games, one of the parents brought cookies for the whole squad. Again, thank you for bringing a little snack for the kids. Next week we are having games again. We are looking forward to see all of our players at the practices and games! GO LIONS!

Houston Dutch Lions FC U8 Orange – Houston Dutch Lions FC U8 White 5-8
Player of the week: Salem Sharif

The U8’s played 4 times 10-minute games last Saturday. They were as always eager to win and play their games. As soon when the referee started the game, all the players sprinted towards the ball. They were all very enthusiastic. Houston Dutch Lions FC U8 White team took the lead in the game. The players needed a break after 20 minutes of playing soccer. During halftime we changed goalkeeper and the coaches shared their soccer enthusiasm with the kids.

The U8 White continues with scoring goals. At the end Salem Sharif was top scorer and created good chances together with his fellow teammates. Both teams played with 100% effort. Good job u8’s! We are looking forward to next week with again an exited game!

Houston Dutch Lions FC U10 Orange – Houston Dutch Lions FC U10 White 6-5
Players of the week: Reilly Payne & Dustin Lindvall

U10's Orange Coached by Maarten and U10's white Coached by Michiel.

The first half the teams already showed how competitive they are to each other. Both teams had chances that they created from good combinations in the field. The goals were beautiful and the fighting spirit of the teams was incredible. By half time the score was 2-1 for team Orange. The goals were made by Kendall, Cooper and Vladyslav.

In the second half the game was even more exiting with many goals on both sides. The White team took a lead 3-5 with and Dustin made a three goals (HATTRICK!). But the Orange team kept their heads up and fought themselves back in the game and now it was Reilly Payne that scored three goals (HATTRICK!). 

With the Orange team winning this game 6 - 5, both teams played a very good match!

Houston Dutch Lions FC U11 – Texas Rush 10 – 4
Player of the week: Julian Vega

While the Dutch Lions FC were down a player, the squad managed to come out with a 10-4 victory with fantastic assists and goals. Julian Vega scored 7 goals, with one being from a fantastic assist by Joey Rudnicki.

U11's beat Rush

Two great goals from Patrick Halbirt, each showing his ability to run with great pace while in possession of the ball. Addie Bartlett scored another goal from a beautiful set piece, showing her ability to play both center back and forward. While in the first half all players played positions they found themselves comfortable with, the second half brought the challenge of playing in different positions. Not only did the Lions manage this change they thrived in it by proving they could all be a part of the attack. All seven players had a shot on goal. Though there is still much to work on, the team can be glad they performed so well.

Goals: Julian Vega, Patrick Halbirt, Addie Bartlett

Houston Dutch Lions FC U12 – Space City FC U12 2-0 (1-0)
Player of the week:  Diego Gorjon

The second league game of the season also resulted in a victory for the U12’s. After last week’s 2-1 win against the Texans, the Lions were eager to show better field play this time.

Win for the U12's

Defensively the team was strong, small changes were created and after 20 minutes it was Diego Gorjon who scored the first goal for the Lions, 1-0. In the first half right forward Colton was dangerous a few times, unfortunately it didn’t led to a second goal before the half time whistle.

In the second half the Lions continued dominating the game, the field play became better and the opponent had difficulties reaching our goal through excellent defending from our team!

Finally we saw central defender Christian Keller move into the midfield, after a combination he went one on one towards the goalkeeper and found the back of the net!

And so the Lions win again, a more than deserved win for the boys and girl who fought for every duel, keep up the good work!

Super Y U18 boys team coming to Houston 

In addition to the existing PDL and Super 20 teams the Houston Dutch Lions FC is proud to announce a very important part of our development pyramid, a U18 boys team that will play during the summer months in the Super Y.

“On behalf of everyone here at the Super Y League, we are pleased to announce our next group of new member clubs for 2015,” said Gordon Bengtson Director, U20 & Youth League Development at USL Soccer. “We have experienced unprecedented growth for 2015, and the interest and support of the league has been tremendous. Not only will each of these clubs contribute to the overall quality of the league, but they will also play a role in helping expand into different regions and start new divisions.”

In all, 16 teams from Major League Soccer, the USL, the PDL and the W-League will now host Super Y League programs as they look to develop players that will have a chance to compete at the next level.

“It is fantastic to see so many of our senior level teams supporting the vertical integration our organization offers,” Bengston said. “More clubs recognize that it is not only vital for the sustainable growth of their first teams but also see the value of our league and its programming. This development is a testament to how strong the league will be in 2015 and also the exciting future for the Super Y League.”  

“The continued growth of the Super Y-League for 2015 is both encouraging and exciting,” said Mike Jacobs, Vice President League Development. “To be able to add teams that are not only well respected, but also with affiliations with professional clubs in the USL and Major League Soccer speaks volumes for the standard of clubs in our league.”

United Soccer Leagues

Technical Director of the Houston Dutch Lions FC Marco Pruis said: ‘The Houston Dutch Lions FC is very proud to add an important step into the development pyramid within the club. With our USL PDL and Super 20 squads going into their fourth season, we are very excited to add a Super Y U18 boys team. With the addition of a U18 boys team, the Houston Dutch Lions FC becomes an even better stepping stone for young soccer players. We will look for top U16/U17/U18 boys from the greater Houston area who we can help grow as a soccer player to reach their own top level. Our summer program becomes much stronger with the addition of a U18 boys team. In the Dutch philosophy we look at skill level, not directly at age, we look forward to challenging top talents with the possibility of moving up our development pyramid.’

Information regarding try outs will be announced soon. For questions regarding the U18 boys team, feel free to contact Technical Director Marco Pruis at [email protected] or 713-498-3888.

Player of the week: Thomas Puente Teixidor & Sophia Saludares
 

With the first league games starting this past weekend, both our U8 teams started off all ready to go. In a 5v5 game format both teams tried to make triangles. When the space was there we saw great individual moves from Sophia, Salim, Mathew and Thomas. New player Jack showed to be a great addition to the U8’s.
U8's in action

Both teams made it an exciting game. With a 5-5 score, with only 2 minutes to be played, the Orange squad scored the winning goal (6-5).

Good job from all players, good luck this upcoming season!

U10's with Coach Marco U10's with Coach Maarten

Both teams saw new players come in during the winter break, standouts for the Blue teams were the twins Cooper and Reilly. The brothers knew how to protect the ball and helped their team out in dangerous situations.

With the Blue team winning this game, the first round is behind us. Next week both teams play another game, good luck Lions!

Houston Dutch Lions FC U11 – Kingwood Alliance U11 2-0
Player of the Match: Drake Talley

The Houston Dutch Lions FC U11 enjoyed a well-deserved 2-0 win against KW Alliance U11. The first half we saw goals from Julianne Vega and Joey Rudnicki  which were both the result of strong combination plays and individual technique. While the Lions dominated the first half, they were presented in the second half with the challenge of playing unfamiliar positions. With this dilemma the players still managed to express themselves as individuals and play as a team.  No goals were scored in the second half but many opportunities were created and Evan Franks on his debut managed to hit the crossbar. Drake Talley played the complete game and was able to showcase his abilities as both a goalkeeper and very strong field player. Andrew Daher and Marcos Sanchez showed great discipline as defenders but were not shy to be a part of the attack. All players should be proud not of the victory, but of the fearlessness to express their own soccer identities in this game which was captained by Nicholas Armstrong who has shown a great training ethic in preseason and it was demonstrated during the game.

Houston Dutch Lions FC U12 – Texans U12 2-1 (1-0)
Player of the week: Colton Collins and Mathew Silva

Finally the U12’s were back in business in the first league game of 2015. With Dayton and Colton joining the team, the boys and girl looked sharp to start this game against the Texans U12.

U12's win with 2-1!

Within the first 10 minutes, left forward Mathew Silva showed great persistence in pressuring the ball. He kept on going trying to get the ball back, when he was close to the goal he forced the opponent to make a mistake and Mathew scored the first goal, 1-0 for the Lions!

The Lions were stronger, had small chances but couldn’t promote any of these chances into a second goal. In the second half the Lions had to wake up quickly as the Texans scored the equalizer and became a bit stronger. With 15 minutes left in the game our central defender Christian Keller moved into the midfield. After a combination with Dayton he went one on one towards the goalkeeper and finished the ball very professional, 2-1 for the Lions.

And so the Houston Dutch Lions FC U12 wins the first game of the spring season, good job team!

Houston Dutch Lions FC U13/U14  - EDDOA Wolves 0-5
Player of the Week: Jon Franks

The Squad of the Houston Dutch Lions FC U13/U14 had their first home game of the season in the History of the Houston Dutch Lions FC.

U14's first home game

The Houston Dutch Lions FC U13/U14 had a tough game. The Lions wanted to play a good game against them with lots of effort. The First half wasn’t strong from our side. We had to step up in order to get grip on the game again. Even though the Wolves scored 2 goals in the first half, we created several chances to score a goal. Unfortunately we couldn’t finish the chances that were created.

The Lions agreed that they had to give more effort in the second half. Despite we couldn’t create serious chances, we were more aggressive and we stood up against our opponent. Overall the Squad deserved a goal, but unfortunately the chances couldn't be converted into a goal. Next week we are having a home game again. The game starts at 3pm at our soccer facility at field 1.  The U13/U14 has to step up their game in order to get better results. Next week the Lions can try it again!

GO LIONS!

Houston Dutch Lions FC Orange – TFC United 0-1
Player of the week: Patrick Garland

Last Sunday, the Houston Dutch Lions FC Orange played against TFC. the Lions had to win this game if they wanted to have a chance to climb in the league table. In the first minutes of the game the Lions had some shots but couldn’t create really big chances. Later in the first half the game was changing when TFC United played more physical. The Lions played in a low pace, couldn’t win the battles on the field and also gave to much space to the opponent to pass the ball around.

HFA Orange squad

In the second the Lions made the same mistakes and this time TFC United used the space good and took the lead (1-0). The Lions tried to fight themselves back in the game but didn’t play with the confidence and energy that they had last two games. It was hard and sometimes frustrating for everyone because a lot of things went wrong. Only in the last 20 minutes of the game the Lions were close to a goal but were very unlucky finishing their chances.

Houston Dutch Lions FC HFA 1 – Fury Black 4-1
Player of the Week: Stephan Nicknish

The Squad of the Houston Dutch Lions FC wins an important game in order to become the league's champions!

After a short warm up the players were ready to start the game and continue the good play of last weekend. The main goal was to win the game. The Lions had dominated possession most of the game but Fury only had a few counter attacks that resulted in 1 goal. The Lions were sharp and played with determination.

Overall, The squads of the Dutch Lions FC were in better shape, had more quality and played with determination. We wanted to score by creating chances throughout the side with a lot of movement from our midfielders. The first goal made by Chance was a good ‘one touch’ of Edwin. Chance was faster and finished the rebound after his first shot. The Lions weren’t able to expend the score in the first half. They needed to be smarter in the battles, and they need to show the willingness to win!

The defense of Fury wasn’t able to defend our offensively attacks anymore. After the second goal of the game, Fury wasn’t able to get the grip of the game. The Lions played on their half for the last 35 minutes of the game.   We created several chances, but scored only two goals more. Chance and JP took care of the goals.

After the end signal all the players including staff knew that they had a great result! We are having 4 games left to make sure we become the best team in division 1B. Congratulations with the victory and the first spot in the standings! Well done! See you guys at practice Tuesday.

HFA game reports January, 2015 

Houston Dutch Lions FC – AFC ME
Player of the week: Edwin Medina

The first squad of the Houston Dutch Lions FC played its first game of this year Sunday January 18th. After one week of practice the orange Lions were eager to get a good result!

The first 11 players on the field were searching for the controlled pass on the field.  Most of the guys looked at the ball and had no initiative. After some wake up calls the lions had better positions in the field and they created more chances. Assistant coach Maarten van der Wal showed that he is not afraid to score a goal and opened the score, 1-0.  After the first goal, we only played on there half of the field.  AFC ME couldn’t control the game anymore.  
8 minutes later Jonathan Segovia scored the second goal in the game out of a corner kick. Kevin & Edwin took care of the 2 goals after that. Kevin scored out of a great assist from Carlos. And Edwin made a perfect action from the left side and finished the ball perfect in the net.

The Houston Dutch Lions FC scored 4 goals in the first half. It was already clear who’s winning this game. The Opponent didn’t have the strength to create chances and to score against us. In the second half of the field, one of the best players gets a red card. After that moment, we had several chances. We scored 2 more goals made by Maarten & Brian. We should have reached the 10 on the scoreboard but unfortunately some players thought different.  Our goals scored in total can be important in the end. We need to score goals as many as we can!

GO LIONS!

Phrase of the week: If you score a goal there is a possibility to win a game, If you score a lot of goals there is a possibility to become Champion.

Houston Dutch Lions FC Orange – FK Bosnae 3-5 (1-5)
Player of the week: Robbert Kroeze

The Orange squad played their first game after the winter break against FK Bosnae. The first half the Houston Dutch Lions FC Orange didn’t showed the right spirit on the field. We lost the ball too easy on our own half by too much dribbling with the ball and difficult passes. We had to recover, otherwise these would be an easy game for FK Bosnae. By half time the score was already 5-1 for FK Bosnae. After the five goals, Robbert did something back just before half time (5-1).

The second half the Houston Dutch Lions FC Orange gave everything to make something of these game. FK Bosnae couldn’t come out of the pressure. The Orange team had control over the game and created many chances. With a beautiful goal from Robbert and John the Houston Dutch Lions FC Orange came back to 5-3. It was not enough, but in the second half the team showed that they are willing to fight for a good result!
