Louletano lose their cool as Olhanense gain revenge

Back in September Louletano inflicted a 1-0 defeat on SC Olhanense; the only Campeonato Portugal league game they’ve lost this season.

Last Sunday the reverse fixture took place in Olhão with the visitors from Loulé on a run of five consecutive victories and Olhanense missing their inspirational captain Leleco; absent after picking up five yellow cards.
The home side took the lead after just ninety seconds with stand-in skipper Tiago Jogo scoring his first goal in almost five years!
Olhanense then missed a penalty before Sapara made it 2-0; but minutes later the same player scored a bizarre own goal when a 40m back-pass eluded goalkeeper Rodrigo Moura and sailed into the net.

The 25 year-old Nigerian made amends early in the second-half as he netted his third goal to give the home side a 3-1 lead. Midway through the half Louletano had two players, Vladimir Forbs and Oliveira, sent-off within four minutes and it was game over.
Olhanense retain top spot a point ahead of Real SC (Lisbon) and Louletano remain fourth but five points below their local rivals.
On Sunday Olhanense travel down the coast to play Lagos Esperança at the Lagos Municipal Stadium. Kick off 7pm with the game being shown live on Canal 11 TV. CW
