Striker Ben Burton fired the Saints ahead inside the opening 15 minutes, with his 37th goal of season, only for Portuguese to equalise on the half hour with a powerful header from defender Silvio Freitas.

Goalkeeper Nuno Duarte was Portuguese Club’s hero in the shoot-out saving three kicks – replicating his performance when the same two clubs meet in the Dog Club Trophy only for Portuguese to be ousted from the competition have played a first-team registered player! Portuguese Club official Nelio De Freitas said: ‘It was an enjoyable game and really we should have won it inside 90 minutes.

Four-one would have been a true reflection in normal time but we missed three one-on-ones with the goalkeeper and another very good opportunity.

‘It was a tidy little game for the division and I thought Silvio Freitas was commanding in our defence.’ St Ouen midfielder Scott Samson said: ‘We didn’t play well last night, the first 15 minutes we were okay but after that things went amiss.

We’ve had a good season but with two defeats in two games now we’re starting to look a bit lazy at times.

‘Shane Carré was lively in attack for us while goalkeeper Danny Caunce kept us in the game to be fair with several very good saves.’ Portuguese Club: Nuno Duarte; Agostinho Gouveia, Emmanuel Alves, Silvio Freitas, Jonny Pestana; Carlos Correia, Nelson Castro, Carlos Fernandes, Carlos Ferreira; Nelson Aveiro, Valero Figueira.
