U18 Champions of UAE FA Academy League - Du La Liga HPC

March 19, 2018

 After a thrilling finale on Saturday evening, Du La Liga HPC were crowned the winners of the U18 category of the UAE FA Academy League (UAE FAAL).

The game was nothing of an easy battle for Du La Liga HPC, as fellow Dubai Rivals - City FC were out to upset last years champions.


The game began with several great efforts from both sides,  with most of the possession being battled between the two midfields.

After an excellent free-kick from City FC's Jack Manson, the Reds were up 1-0.

The following minutes saw a bumpy road for Du La Liga HPC as they almost let another goal in, which was denied by an excellent goal line clearance.

After some time, Du La Liga HPC managed to get into the rhythm of the game and began contesting at the other end. This was then followed by a headed effort from a corner kick, making it 1-1 going into Half time.


The second half began underway and it was a stail mate, with chances unable to be converted at both ends of the field.

Later on in the game, Du La Liga made a well worked effort into the penalty box... as the striker tried to take it round the last defender and then the keeper, he was caught in a collision....a penalty decision was called in favour for Du La Liga.

The penalty was scored, making it 2-1 to Du La Liga HPC.

City FC showed great strength and heart as they have done throughout the whole league by knocking at the door of Du La Liga with a close free kick attempt and a handful of corners, however they could not equalise.

The Final score was 2-1, crowning Du La Liga HPC as the U18 UAE FAAL champions.

Credit must be made to both teams, for displaying such a high class level of football. We at the FAA wish them all the very best for their final efforts of the year and any other events and camps before close of season.
