Adecco BEFC MVP vs GUTS - Yu Sasada
In an important clash between the 2nd and 3rd positioned teams in the TML Division 2 title race BEFC took on GUTS SC without half of its usual defence. Against a team primarily known statswise for scoring a lot of goals it was going to be interesting. Lining up with an experimental 3-4-2-1...

Adecco BEFC MVP vs Pumas - Kotaro Uwatsu

Adecco BEFC MVP vs Pumas - Kotaro Uwatsu
The luck of the FJ Cup draw threw out a repeat of last year's final with BEFC facing off against their 'kind of' rival team Pumas. BEFC spent an entire season going neck and neck with Pumas until they pulled away to win the division and BEFC missed it to a point against Sala. Since then matches...

Adecco BEFC MVP vs Albion Old Boys - Yuta Kawakami
BEFC Lions went into the first game of the second leg against Nepal United, the only team that they have lost to this season. Due to unacceptable tardiness from the goalkeeper and one of the vice-captains, the Lions had to start the game in an unorganized fashion with wooly gloves for the keeper...

Adecco BEFC MVP vs Dutch FC - Yu Sasada
In a snowy spectacular BEFC took on Dutch FC for a potential D2 Champions fight. With Sala FC and SUNS both losing, a win would put BEFC one point behind SUNS with a game in hand.

Adecco MVP BEFC Lions vs King George FC - Masaaki Suzuki

Adecco BEFC MVP vs King George - Masaaki Suzuki
BEFC Lions had previously never lost to King George FC, before being beaten by them in the Cup. This fact led to some apprehension about facing King George again in the league, especially because the BEFC Lions squad remained severely limited. With a BEFC game right before on the same pitch, the...
