• Lighthouse Charity Cup

    17 July 2018

    The second annual Lighthouse Charity Cup sponsored by The Contracts Group Ltd again took place at Sandy Bay’s Stanley Ho Sports Centre on 3 March 2018. It was a fine day that was perfect for fast flowing football.

    The eight teams competing in this year’s event were Gammon, Paul Y, BM Construction, Hip Hing, Savills, Dragages, VSL and the Hong Kong Institution of Planning Engineers.

    As with the World Cup the first round of the tournament was in group format, where each of the four teams within that group played each other once.

    In Group A, Paul Y and Savills soon demonstrated that they had what it took to go all the way in the tournament. Having beaten both VSL and AES HKIPE they then proceeded to draw 1 – 1 with each other to tie on seven points at the top of the group. Paul Y ultimately took top spot due to their slightly superior goal difference

    Group B was much more tightly fought with all teams registering at least one win. Dragages ended up winning the group, closely followed by BM Construction who pipped Gammon on goal difference for second place.

    In the knockout phase, the 3rd and 4th placed teams from each Group faced each other in the Plate Competition whilst the 1st and 2nd from each Group battled it out to be crowned Cup champions.

    In the Plate, Hip Hing and AES HKIPE progressed from the semi-finals having beaten VSL and Gammon respectively. Neil Robert’s Hip Hing team took home the Plate Trophy beating a much improved AES HKIPE team 2 -0.

    In the Cup Semi Final’s it was no surprise that Savills and Paul Y progressed, beating the unfortunate Dragages and BM Construction to take their place in the final. Savills held off a very spirited Paul Y team to retain the trophy they won a year ago.

    We would like to thank all the teams who participated in the event and look forward to hosting another Lighthouse Charity Cup next year.
