On Sunday 21st the SAC adult and junior teams played against VSCI. The adults played after the children's games.
The SAC team conceded 2 goals in the first 30 minutes. We had the ball most of the time but opponent's defence was disciplined and numerous and proved hence to be quite insurmountable.
Despite the opponent's strength, our team slowly but surely came back in the second half and were even leading 3-2 five minutes before the end (goals by Harald Auss and Laurent Minet). Unfortunately the referee whistled an undisputable penalty for VSCI resulting in a final score of 3-3.
The game next Sunday is against Jouy en Josas.

Under grey skies on Sunday morning, it was a pleasure for SAC to host two junior teams from Le Vésinet before the adult match between the two clubs on the main pitch.
And what a fine spectacle of junior soccer it was. With the rain miraculously staying away, both matches were played in the best of spirits.
On the first junior football pitch, the determined under-8 SAC team soundly defeated their opponents 7-1. As the eager crowd of parents hugged the sidelines, braving the cold in their mittens and boots, SAC started the scoring early with a thunderous kick from 10 yards away by Alexander followed by 2 more goals assisted by the agile midfielder Augustin. Though the players from Le Vésinet tried to find cracks in the impenetrable SAC defence led by the mighty duo, Aurélien and Mischa, they were outmatched on this wonderfully muddy Sunday morning. Le Vésinet tried to mount a comeback in the final minutes, but SAC goalie Jules made several incredible saves, greeted by roars of approval from the cheering SAC parents, surely heard seven counties away.
