A goal by the Moroccan Bouldini today gave the victory to Académica in the reception to Mafra, in the closing game of the 15th round of the II football league, which consolidated the second place in the league table for 'students'.
With this victory, Académica now has 31 points, four more than Feirense, third place, and five less than leader Estoril, while Mafra, who has not won in two months, maintains eighth place.
On a cold night, the game was played at a good pace, with both teams looking for the opposing goal, albeit with few scoring opportunities.
Briosa had the first chance on 23 minutes, in a deflection by Bouldini, who led the ball past the goal post after a cross from the right.
Mafra replied three minutes later, following an indirect free-kick, with a shot from Bruno by Mika's crossbar.
Académica, who came from a moralizing victory in Arouca (2-0), scored the only goal of the match in the 64th minute, by Bouldini, in a bicycle kick inside the small area.
The goal arises from a direct free kick, in which the ball hits the barrier and is left for Dias, who plays with his head towards the acrobatic shot of the Moroccan striker, who took the ball to touch the post before entering the goal, in a very contested by the mafreenses, who asked for the game.
In the next minute, the "students" were almost extending the advantage, but Fabinho's shot, already inside the area, found the body of an opposing defender on the goal line.
Already close to the end, in the 86th minute, Briosa returned to be very close to the goal, when Traquina isolated Sanca, who was unable to undo the goalkeeper Carlos Henriques.
