Lukas leaves it late as Shane continue good form
A late Lukas Tschojer header was enough to secure all three points and maintain Shane’s
winning start to the season.
With the Taiwanese sun beating down at JinHe, Shane toiled away in a physical battle against Triangle to win 1-0 and go top of the table after two games.
The first half was a scrappy encounter with Triangle on the front foot in the opening stages, before the game become a midfield battle with neither side creating many clear-cut opportunities. Winger Carl Puchner had a shot saved in what was the best chance of the half.
Shane came out stronger in the second half and a strong defensive line led by Dan Engel and Danny Miller meant that keeper Adam Lupinski had a quiet day at the office. As the game went on, spaces opened up for midfielder Enoc Hercules to enjoy himself, exploiting the space with his impressive vision.
Despite being on top, Shane struggled to apply that final finish and went close on numerous occasions before Lukas Tschojer stepped up with his first Shane goal on his outfield return.
After a quick passing move, the ball fell to Lukas Tschojer who played a pass over his shoulder for left winger Paul Warren to latch onto, who duly played a looping cross to the back post for Lukas run onto to nod home.
It was another solid display from Shane who are yet to concede this season, and made it two wins from two. Dan Engel picked up his second MOTM in as many games for another domineering display alongside CB partner Danny Miller. We also welcomed debutants Leo Michot and Elias Argueta who both hit the ground running in a Shane shirt with impressive displays.
Shane look forward to a tough fixture against Animals on March 27th, but can take confidence in the way they have started the 2022 campaign.
