ALECRIM DRAMATICALLY QUALIFY FOR 2015 BRAZILIAN CUP

Alecrim have qualified for their first ever Brazilian Cup after securing a third place finish in the Rio Grande do Norte State Championship.  Needing a victory at home to Baraunas to qualify for Brazil’s national cup competition, the EcoHouse-sponsored team held a 2-1 lead going in to the last five minutes.

However it appeared all was lost in the 88th when Vitor scored for Baraunas, but the Alecrim players never let their heads drop and just one minute from the final whistle, striker Rodrigo da Lua scored the decisive goal to send the home crowd wild.  The Alecrim players can now look forward to potentially facing some of the top teams in Brazil next season, in what will be the club’s centenary year.

“I want to thank the fans and all those who worked so hard to be part of this fantastic achievement.  In 2015 Alecrim will celebrate its 100th birthday, and as a fruit of the hard work everyone has put in, we will compete in a huge national competition.  Everyone in the Alecrim family has once again showed their strength and achieved yet another objective, participation in the Brazilian Cup.  The hard work continues!” said Alecrim President and EcoHouse CEO Anthony Armstrong Emery.
