Day two started with breakfast at the hotel before students travelled to the University Da Maia Umaia, which is a sports university, for their second training session. This session had different objectives to the first session and looked at duration, keeping players wide and variety of passes. The students then headed to lunch at an ‘all you can eat’ buffet before heading to their first matches of the tour. The older students played first and despite having numerous changes to score and Tom in goal not having much to do the team conceded two late penalties making the score 2-0 to Dragon Select Ermesinde. The younger students were up next against what looked like a bigger team than the older students had played but they started well and took the lead through Yezen’s free kick. Unfortunately they couldn’t hold onto the lead and then conceded a second goal right on half time. Despite having numerous changes to equalise the score finished 3-1. The students then headed back to the hotel for dinner and then an evening of bowling before lights out.
