TO ALL OUR HOCKEY MOMS... AND DADS! ;-)

Still looking for volunteers that are willing to cook soup for our SOUP-FEST (ideally 2 to 5 liter per volunteer)! You feel like helping and wanting to prepare a hearty soup, let us know through the Twizzit tasks 'SOUP-FEST'... 

All proceeds from this event will help support the 2021/2022 international tournaments LHC teams are participating in!

Dear hockey players, dear parents,

A new Covid law was passed by the Luxembourgish government. The law will entered into force today (19/10) and remains in place until 18 December. 

Children under 12 years and 2 months do not longer require a certificate to be able to take part in competitions.

HOW DOES IT IMPACT OUR OTHER MEMBERS AND VISITORS?

The CovidCheck system will be applicable as of 19 October, ie self-administered rapid tests will be dropped, in favour of PCR or certified rapid tests.

In practice it means we only can continue to take part in competitions provided our players/visitors present:
-       a vaccination certificate
-       a negative COVID-19 test certificate by means of

  • a negative PCR test result not older than 72 hours
  • a negative antigen test result not older than 48 hours carried out by a medical analysis laboratory or any other entity authorised for this purpose
  • a negative result not older than 48 hours, transmitted electronically by the Ministry of Education, of a test that has been performed at school is also accepted a recovery certificate

- a recovery certificate

These are and remain uncharted waters for all of us and we will do our best to run our trainings and matches as smoothly as possible. 

We therefore would kindly ask you to:
-       Arrive on time for your training session/matches, ideally with your vaccination certificate or negative test result/recovery certificate at hand. Do not enter the playing area before your allotted time.
-       Try to reduce physical contact with other players (such as shaking hands, sharing bottles or high fives).
-       Use the antiseptic gels that are available at the entrance of the pitch.

Let's stay safe and have fun... together we can do this! 

Dear hockey players, dear parents, 


Since 14 September 2021 the Luxembourg government announced that Covid-19 measures were extended until 18 October 2021 at least.

These are uncharted waters for all of us and we will do our best to run our trainings and matches as smoothly as possible.  We therefore would kindly ask you to:

We are super excited as it is getting real now... more than 120 hockey lovers, LHC members and non-members, registered for the upcoming Super Sunday (10/10/2021)!

Men 1 :  Neo vs HC Luxembourg 
 
Deprived of five regular players, Hockey Club Luxembourg travelled to Mechelen one week after a convincing victory against the Lynx.
 
With a reworked squad, Maxime Halflants' men started brightly against Neo, playing in a compact and united manner. Combining in small spaces with quick passes, practically every one of their actions caused the opposition serious danger.
 
After three minutes of play, Frédéric Ferrard scored with a nice deflection into the roof of the goal to make it 1-0. A few moments later, captain Laurent Nève, in a 5-star performance, slalomed through the whole defence and provoked a PC. Maxime Halflants, back on the field to make up for the numerous absences, converted the opportunity to make it 2-0.
 
The blue and white team then went wild and added five new goals in the space of twenty minutes! Christophe Maters made it 3-0 with a nice backhand. Then it was Milan Dans who scored his first goal of the afternoon by dribbling past the keeper before pushing the ball into the goal from an impossible angle! (0-4). Nacho Gomez-Acebo made his contribution by taking the ball back from the Neo's defence and shooting fast. (0-5). Before half-time, Fred Ferrard - certainly the man of the match - added two more goals for a famous hat-trick, first by diving for a clever deflection, and then by slamming the board violently with a powerful flat shot! (0-7)
 
The visitors continued their dominance after half time. Despite decent resistance from the opposition, the Luxembourgers perforated Neo's defence with scoops above the navy blue line. Milan Dans added to the score by swivelling and shooting with all his strength to bring his team's lead to eight goals! The Luxembourg star striker maintained his average of two goals per game since the beginning of the season: simply exceptional!
 
The HCL could control the match without taking too much risk now. Keeping the ball in the team, the team was now choosing its moments to attack. With 15 minutes to go, Lockdeep Singh showed that he still has some great strengths left in him and scored with a precise push. (0-9) Seven minutes later, Maxime Halflants dribbled in the circle and shot but his ball was wrongly stopped on the goal line : penalty stroke! The coach/player took the responsibility to make it 10-0. Finally, Fred Ferrard added the gloss to his fantastic match with a historic 'quadruple'! (0-11) Proof that at 45 years old, with courage and talent, one can still achieve great feats in a championship of this quality! Congratulations to him and the whole team for this second victory in a row!
 
The HCL has made an excellent start of the season. Next Sunday, Luxembourg will receive Keerbergen at home for a crucial match in the fight for the top of the rankings. The club is counting on the massive support of its loyal and friendly public to win another victory!

Men 1 :  Lynx vs HC Luxembourg 

 

Golden Sunday for the HCL!

Two hundred kilometres away, our men's and women's teams inflicted the same rate on their opponents of the day: a crushing victory, without conceding a single goal!

Our men travelled to the suburbs of Brussels to cross swords with the Lynx club. Determined, they played an ultra offensive tactic by putting a high pressure on their opponent of the day. The strategy quickly paid off, as by half-time the blue and white team were already leading by three goals. Gratien Kangulumba opened the scoring with a sharp backhand in the 5th minute, followed by the inevitable Milan Dans who found the opponent's net twice, first with a subtle tip-in, then by dribbling the goalkeeper before pushing the ball into the empty goal. The hardest part was done after thirty five minutes of play.

The second act was to be a formality for Luxembourg. But it was not! In difficult playing conditions and against a tough and aggressive team, the events took an incredible turn. Within five minutes, the Luxembourgers were (undeservedly) given two yellow cards and even a red card for permanent expulsion! At 8 against 11, the visitors had to rely on their excellent goalkeeper who masterfully saved a penatly stroke to maintain the comfortable lead of his team!

After this period of hesitation, the Hockey Club du Luxembourg regained control of the game and scored twice more, with the same two players as in the first period! Kangulumba found the ceiling of the goal with a powerful sleep before Dans imitated him with a deflection on PC. (0-5)

Thanks to this victory, the HCL is back in the good positions of the rankings, before consolidating its position during a trip in a few days time to the Neo Club, currently last in the championship.
