Houston Dutch Lions FC PDL Reserves on top of the League 

Houston Dutch Lions FC PDL Reserve team vs Viet FC 

The squad of the Houston Dutch Lions FC reserves played their third game against Houston Viet FC on Sunday July 20th.  The Lions reserves are on winning streak and seized the top of the league. After last week victory against Enchant Ed Rock, the Lions were able to celebrate another win and took over the number 1 position in the league.

In the starting minutes of the game both teams were equal to each other. The Lions tried to dominate the game in the first 15 minutes but the striker of the Houston Viet came 1 vs 1 on our goalkeeper making it 1-0 in favor of the Viet FC.  After the goal the Lions needed an equalizer and started looking for scoring opportunities

The chances resulted in the first goal for the Houston Dutch Lions FC.  Adrian Cruz made the equalizer for the Lions and just 10 minutes later Jose Alvarez scored the second goal of the game coming from a good attack over the right flank making the score 2-1 for the Houston Dutch Lions FC.

The Houston Viet FC played with the long ball, which made it dangerous for the Lions defense at times. The dangerous moments converted into another goal for Viet FC scoring the equalizer in the 26th minute; 2-2. It was again Lions Midfielder Jose Alvarez who took the advantage when Jorge Gabbito showed great work effort to repossess the ball and found Jose making it 2-3 before halftime.

The Lions created more and more chances in the second half. Zack, Brandon, Jorge and Pedro scored the other 4 goals after half time, which was enough for the victory in this game. The game ended up with a 7-3 score where the Lions remained possession throughout the second half and only gave up one goal after half time.

Head Coach Michiel van de Heijning is satisfied of the efficiency of the team where he stated: ‘ Winning and scoring goals is what you want to do every game, but seeing a lot of good things back in the game where you practiced on and implement that in the game gives that extra satisfaction. The team can score easily and hopefully we can continue our winning streak throughout the season. We have a few more games left and if we keep on winning our games we can call ourselves the Summer Division Champions of the Houston Football Association League.’

The next game is this Sunday @ 9am at Bear Creak Park against the Titans FC. The Titans FC is also in the race for the title, which will be for both a very important game.

Laredo Heat SC found its way to the play-offs defeating the Lions by 1-3 

Houston Dutch Lions FC PDL Season 2014 vs Laredo Heat SC

The Laredo Heat SC secured the fourth and final spot in the Southern Conference Championships with a win against the Houston Dutch Lions FC. Laredo Heat SC needed a win in order to qualify to take over the second place in the MidSouth Division. With the 3-1 victory Laredo Heat SC climbed to the second place leaving the Midland/Odessa Sockers FC to a third place.

The Houston Dutch Lions FC ended up in the bottom of the league of the 2014 USL PDL Season where the Lions can look back to a strong season with many competitive games being in one of the strongest divisions of the USL PDL.

The Lions started off once again very strong in the opening minutes and got rewarded with a goal in the 33rd minute. Rimario Gordon was found and with his skills he got around his opponent crossing the ball in the box. Joe Jackson took his chance to make his way to the cross, got his foot on the ball and hit target. The Lions were up with 1-0 and Laredo Heat SC knew that they needed a quick goal to keep themselves in the game and vision for the playoffs. It didn’t take long for Laredo Heat SC to tie the game, only 3 minutes after the goal Laredo’s Midfielder Miguel Fernandez found his way towards goal and found the back of the net making the score 1-1.

Both teams went to the locker rooms with a 1-1 tie where the Lions got a setback by leaving goalkeeper Charles Schober behind in the locker room with a shoulder injury that he gained in the first half. Lions striker Joe Jackson took his responsibility for his goalkeeper debut due to the injury problems that the goal keepers got throughout the season. 

In the first half the Lions created many opportunities but were fragile on the counter attacks of the Laredo Heat SC. In the second half the Lions came out strong again and looked for their opportunities to find goal. Laredo remained strong in their counter attacks and became dangerous in the box where Jonathan Segovia made a foul. The referee didn’t hesitate to blow his whistle and pointed to the penalty spot. Again, just like the last 2 games another penalty kick against the Lions where the captain of Laredo took his responsibility to secure the 1-2 on the scoreboard. With a goal down the Lions were looking for a tie creating some good opportunities but Laredo’s goalkeeper Jorge Ortega didn’t allow the shots to go in. In the 73rd minute Laredo Heat SC safeguarded the playoffs spot by putting the 1-3 on the scoreboard. Luna Salvador scored the redeeming goal and gave Laredo Heat SC a reason to celebrate; the reach of the playoffs.USL PDL game for the Houston Dutch Lions FC

Head Coach Marco Pruis gave his thoughts of the game: ‘ I expected a game where both teams were eager to win where Laredo was under a lot of pressure. Laredo is very dangerous in its counter attacks, which made the difference today. They came here for a victory but for sure it wasn’t an easy one. After the 1-0 we needed to stay focused but we gave in the tie too early. Only 3 minutes after you score you give up goal, which wasn’t necessary at all. Then loosing your goalkeeper during half time due to an injury was a big setback for the team. We gave away another penalty kick just like the last few games. You make it yourself much more difficult giving up that many penalty kicks. However I think we showed again that we are very good competitors among the other teams. We ended up in the bottom of the league but with a little more luck on our side and finishing our chances we could have been higher in the ranking. Unfortunately that didn’t happen and hopefully next season luck will be on the Lions side. I want to give a special thanks to all the fans once again that supported us throughout the season. Hopefully we will see them all back next season!’ 

The 2014 USL PDL Season is over and the Lions will look forward to next season. Thank you fans for all the support throughout the season and see you all next season!

Lions take on Heat tonight at 6pm 

Houston Dutch Lions FC vs Laredo Heat SC

The Houston Dutch Lions FC plays their last game of the 2014 USL PDL Season against the Laredo Heat SC at home. 

The Houston Dutch Lions FC can look back to a very competitive season where they started out very strong after the 5-0 loss against Austin in their first game. The Lions traveled to Laredo after the tough loss and showed that the loss in Austin was just an incident. The Lions tied Laredo Heat SC where the 3 points should have been brought back to Houston. The Lions hosted Laredo on May 24th and kept the 3 points at home winning from Laredo Heat SC with 1-0. The Lions kept playing strong in the following games but were unlucky in scoring opportunities tying Mississippi Brilla FC twice and lost their next games where the win could have gone both ways. 

For Laredo Heat SC this game will be of high importance. They need a win in order to secure the play-offs and therefore will do everything they can to get a win tonight at the Houston Dutch Lions FC Soccer Facility. If Laredo Heat SC doesn’t win tonight then the Midland/Odessa Sockers FC will go to the play-offs together with the USL PDL Mid-South Division Champions the Austin Aztex.

Head Coach Marco Pruis is determined for a win. Marco and his team want to close the season with a victory at home for honor and fan appreciation. The fans during the season were tremendous and the team is dedicated for win at home for the fans.

The Lions can look back to a strong season even though it doesn’t show that on the league table. Almost every game was one where the Lions could have brought in the 3 points. But missing major opportunities in important games is when you face losses, which happened throughout this season.

Therefore if the chances will be converted in goals then the Lions will have a very good chance to be an obstacle for Laredo on their road to the play-offs.

Come out, bring your chair and support your Lions at 6:00pm for their very last game of the USL PDL 2014 Season!!!

Lions get lectured by the Aztex in efficiency 

The 13th USL PDL game ended up in a dramatic tough loss for the Lions in Austin against reigning National Champions the Austin Aztex.

In the first minutes of the game the Lions had trouble controlling the match. Unfortunately that didn’t last long when the first goal came from a through ball that came in front of Aztex forward Adam Black who chipped the ball over Lions goal keeper Schober making the score 1-0. Before the goal both teams created chances. Lions forward Gordon and midfielder Verhaar saw their shots over the crossbar and goalkeeper Charles Schober denied the Aztex shots.

Houston Dutch Lions FC vs Austin Aztex

Just before half time the Aztex showed again to be very efficient. The good combination between Adam Black and Sito Seone gave Sito a way towards the goal; his finish couldn’t be stopped by Schober, 2-0.

With the start of the second half, the rain started pouring down in House Park, which was in favor of the visitors. The Lions came out very strong, pressuring the goal of Perales and forcing him into saves. In the 55th minute the Lions should have been rewarded with a penalty kick. Wessel Verhaar was clearly knocked down by defender Ryden but the referee didn’t see it and decided not to call the foul. The curse that is been hunting the Lions for many games now, creating chances but not finishing them, came back to haunt the team in this game as well.

In the 64th minute the first opportunity for the home team was directly a goal. A pass towards forward Campbell made Schober come out of his goal where Campbell dribbled around the goalkeeper and found striker Jobe who found a way, with his heel, to bring the ball in the goal, 3-0. Frustrations were shown in the faces of the Lions after that goal. The Lions created the chances and again saw the home team finishing their first chance in the second half into a goal.

Just two minutes after the goal the ball came in front of Aztex striker Jobe from a cross. With his back facing the goal he found again a way to promote the cross into a goal with his heel.

As the rain kept on pouring down in Austin, a shot from 22 yards from Edward Campbell was reflected by a foot of a Lions defender, this made Schober to see the ball too late and the score became 5-0. Not typically a 5-0 match, which made the Lions players extra disappointed.

A few minutes after the 5-0, lighting and thunder took over in Austin. The referees and Coaches made the decision to end the game in the 77th minute.

Therefore the Lions lost with 5-0 in a game where they did show good performance, but were shown a lecture in efficiency by the Austin Aztex. The team can look back at a very strong start of the second half were the players showed courage and the will to score a goal. Frustrating for the players to see the shots not being promoted into goals.

This Saturday the Houston Dutch Lions FC will close the 2014 USL PDL season with a home game against Laredo Heat SC, game kicks-off at 6:00pm.

Watch the game highlights of the match here:

Houston Dutch Lions FC looking for first victory at House Park in Austin 

Houston Dutch Lions FC PDL 2014 Season vs Austin Aztex

 

The Houston Dutch Lions FC (1-8-3) faces the Austin Aztex (10-1-2) tonight at 7.30pm in Austin. The Aztex secured their number one position on July 5th defeating Midland/Odessa Sockers FC with 2-1, where they became champions of the Mid-South Division of the PDL League.

The Houston Dutch Lions were never able to steal points in Austin where the Aztex opened the season very strong by winning from the Lions with 5-0 at House Park.

For the Houston Dutch Lions FC the game will be played for nothing more than the honor since the Lions are not in the race for the playoffs, closing the gate in the league. However the Lions will do anything to seek for a victory. The Aztex has won all of the 9 games that have been played between the two teams. This record shows how strong the Aztex are when they play against the Lions.

On June 21st the Lions were very close to tie or even pull out a victory at home losing by only one goal difference with 1-2. The game could have gone both ways but again it was Austin that claimed the victory.

Head Coach Marco Pruis has set the tone to his players bringing in the mentality to get the very first win in Austin and close the season with a win in the final away game of the 2014 PDL Season. Marco and his team are very dedicated to write history in Austin by getting a good result at House Park.

The Lions show each game that they can compete among the best teams in the PDL League having many opportunities to make it every team difficult. It all comes down to finish the opportunities converting the chances in goals. There are still 6 points to earn in the last 2 matches and the Lions will do everything they can to finish off the season with 2 victories.

The very last game of the PDL 2014 regular season will be played at the Houston Dutch Lions FC Soccer Facility against the Laredo Heat SC. The Lions can be an obstacle for Laredo where a defeat for Laredo will be enough for the Midland/Odessa Sockers FC to secure a spot in the playoffs. If Laredo wins in Conroe, then the playoff spot will be secured for the Laredo Heat SC. This game will be played this Saturday at 6pm at the Houston Dutch Lions FC Soccer Facility.

Houston Dutch Lions FC defeated at home against the Midland Sockers FC  

Houston Dutch Lions FC vs Midland July 13 2014

The Houston Dutch Lions FC lost by a 2 goal difference allowing the Sockers FC scoring 2 penalty kicks that made the final score 3-1.

The Lions faced the number 2 in the league at home in Conroe in a the game that was a close one where again the Lions created a lot of opportunities to secure a victory. However the Sockers were more accurate with their shots and it took them 2 penalty kicks to claim the victory.

The first 30 minutes the Lions were very strong by not allowing Midland to get dangerous in front of Lions’s goalkeeper Charles Shober. There were chances created for the home team but the team forgot to score like they did in their previous games. By not scoring chances the Sockers FC got out dangerous at times and took their advantage to take the lead in the 30th minute of the game. Rory Knibbs scored his goal by an assist of Tucker Hume for the Sockers FC. Again the Lions faced a goal against them and needed a goal to get back in the game. It didn’t take long for the Sockers FC to score again. Lions defender Jonathan Segovia made a hand ball in the box and the referee didn’t hesitate to blow the whistle; penalty kick for the Sockers FC. Isaac Sanchez took his responsibility to take the penalty and didn’t fail, making the score 0-2.

The Lions went into the locker rooms being 2 goals behind. Therefore the task was to score an early goal in the second half. The Lions found the back of the net in the 60th minute. Wessel verhaar got the opportunity when Joe Jackson found Verhaar in the box. Verhaar secured the goal for the Lions where the team had enough time to seek for the tie. The Lions got some opportunities for the tie but again faced a penalty kick where Elias Barahona made a foul in the box. The referee was determined to give the second penalty kick of the game. Ricardo Diegues was confident enough to take the penalty kick and also didn’t fail. There was not enough time in the game for the Lions to get back in the game since the penalty was scored in the 87th minute. The final score on the scoreboard: 1-3.

Marco Pruis said: ‘ This was another though loss where I felt that we were strong enough to defeat the number 2 in the league. The players knew that we shouldn’t have lost in this game. We started out strong again but couldn’t finish our chances. We all know that playing well in a game but not finishing our opportunities will be fatal for the end result. We create enough opportunities, but just can’t find the target. Giving up 2 penalty kicks made the difference in the game, which makes it extra frustrating. We need to remain our focus on our final 2 games. We play the Aztex on Thursday in Austin and we will go there with confidence and hopefully in Austin we can convert our opportunities in goals. The fans were outstanding today and I look forward to see them back at our final home game against the Laredo Heat SC on Saturday’.

The Houston Dutch Lions FC is traveling to Austin on Thursday to look for a victory against the PDL Champions of the Mid-South Division. This is the final away game for the 2014 PDL Season. Saturday the final game will be played at the Houston Dutch Lions FC where the team will face the Laredo Heat SC.

Houston Dutch Lions FC lost 4-1 at home against the Champions of the Mid-South Division  

HDLFC vs Austin Aztex PDL 2014 July 9thThe Houston Dutch Lions FC played against the Austin Aztex who became the League Champions of the Mid-South Division after the victory against the Midland/Odessa Sockers FC.

Although Austin is already the champions in the league they still were fighting for points in order to secure the top position of the USL PDL Southern Conference where they hold a five point lead over the Ocala Stampede.

The Lions knew they were about to face a very strong and confident Austin that came to Conroe for nothing less than 3 points. The Lions started off strong in the first 20 minutes of the game. There were chances created and opportunities made. Some good combination plays of the home team forced the Aztex to defend where the Lions saw opportunities for an early goal. The Lions created chances and even hit the crossbar early in the game. The Austin Aztex is an experienced team and found their opportunity right when the Lions seeked for the first score on the scoreboard. Austin came out on a breakaway and secured their first goal of the game in the 26th minute. Buba Joe hit a cross in that found the midfielder of the Aztex Hector Gomez. Gomez didn’t hesitate to shoot in the box and found the back of the net behind goalkeeper Emmanuel Frias.

The home team was in need for an equalizer to get back in the game. The Lions kept on playing good soccer, but the Aztex showed their status of being a true Champion. In the 36th minute Austin found target again when the Aztex goalkeeper Devin Perales had a tremendous assist again. Perales hit a long ball to defender Kalen Ryden that faced Emmanuel Frias in a one on one situation. Ryden passed the Lions goalie with a quick move and made it an easy task to score the second goal of the game. 0-2 Austin.

The Lions tried to get back in the game with some good chances but the goalkeeper of the Aztex didn’t allow the opportunities into goals. In the 70th minute the Aztex found their 3rd goal of the game. Sito Seone came in as a substitute and found his way to goal and scored his first goal of the game.

In the 86th finally the Lions found their first goal of the game. Midfielder Wessel Verhaar shot inside the box and saw his shot fired behind the strong goalkeeper Devin Perales making the score 1-3.

There was not enough time to get back in the game where Austin secured a late goal by Adam Black making the final score 1-4.

Marco Pruis talked about his thoughts of the game: ‘ I think we started off very strong in the first 20 minutes of the game. We played with an attractive style where we created some good opportunities. This season is one where the luck is not on our side. We are showing that we can compete with any team in the league, but if you don’t finish the chances created it can turn around the game. Austin is an experienced team where you know you need to finish every opportunity in order to make it difficult for them. They showed tonight once again that they deserve being number 1 in the league. Congratulations to the Austin Aztex of being the Champions of the Mid-South Division. We will prepare for the game this Sunday against Midland at home and hope to see all our loyal fans back to support the Lions for a victory at home.’

The Houston Dutch Lions FC will face the Midland/Odessa Sockers FC this Sunday at 7.30 at the Houston Dutch Lions FC Soccer Facility.

Super 20’s took a serious revenge over the Regals SCA at home 

July 5th 2014- The Houston Dutch Lions FC Super 20’s locked down a 6-0 victory over the Regals SCA on Saturday at the Houston Dutch Lions FC Soccer Facility. The Regals SCA had a 5-4 victory on Wednesday in Houston where the Lions mission was to revenge the loss at home. The Lions wanted to close the season with a home victory, which they did. The Lions were able to score 6 goals in the final game of the Super 20 Season.

The youngsters started the game with a lot of confidence and domination on the field. The weather condition was very hot where the referee decided to take water breaks during the game. The hot weather condition didn’t stop the Lions game performance. The Lions dominated, whereas the Regals SCA tried to be dangerous with shots and counter attacks. In the 20th minute Erick Sanchez and Roland Koepp had a great combination play.  From that combination Erick Sanchez found his way towards goal and his shot ended up back in the net. 1-0 for the Lions! Roland Koepp had a great rush where he saw the opportunity to shoot on target. His shot was very accurate that ended up behind the Regals SCA goalkeeper. 2-0!

The Lions were not being kept from scoring more goals. It was again Erick Sanchez that scored. He made a run from the midfield towards the goal and again hit target. The Lions went into half time with a comfortable 3-0 lead.

In the second half the Lions were slacking in the first 15 minutes. The comfortable score on the scoreboard seemed enough for victory. However, the Regals SCA came closer to the goal and from that moment the young talents of the Houston Dutch Lions FC decided to play soccer again trying to find more scoring opportunities to safeguard victory. Roland Koepp made a great combination with Roberto Velazquez. Roland Koepp was sure enough to score his second goal in the game making the Lions lead with 4-0. Houston Dutch Lions FC USL Super 20's

After the 4-0 the game could not been turned around anymore which gave the Lions the opportunity to score from counter attacks. This happened from a goal by Roberto Velazquez. Mitch saw some space where Roberto made his run towards the Regals goalkeeper. Roberto decided to dribble around the goalkeeper making it an easy task to put the 5-0 on the scoreboard.

After the 5-0 the lions remained to play very well. In the last minutes of the game Roland Koepp shot on goal where the ball ended up in front of Jeff Roman. Jeff secured the 6-0 on the scoreboard before the final whistle.

This was the final game of the USL Super 20 2014 Season. The Lions didn’t make it to the play-offs this year but they were very competitive during the season. The Houston Dutch Lions FC Super 20’s showed a lot of talent throughout the season where some players even made it as an add on to the PDL Squad.
