September 2014: Momentum Building
We were undefeated in the league again in September
Only six days into September we were scheduled to play once more as we went on an away trip to face UA Aragua
. We shot off to a fantastic start, Eduardo Cañas adding to his season goal tally twice in the first ten minutes. Only eight minutes after that is was our other front man Jesús Reyes who put the ball in the back of the net. While it was a close run game the odds swung in our favour this time and we collected a handy three points against our opponents.
UA ARAGUA 2-4 HERMANDAD GALLEGA
E. CAÑAS (x2), J. REYES, ZAMBRANO (
Our run of form continued when we managed to overcome Guatire FC
in what was tipped to be a close encounter. Our now famed striking duo of Cañas and Reyes came to the fore once again as they struck either side of a Guatire goal to give us a vital win against what is a very strong side that will be in and amongst the promotion pack. I think the fact that we're blessed with two great strikers in our team means we can outscore anyone, it's just about keeping a solid backline.

E. CAÑAS, J. REYES
Just a little over a week later we returned from that away run of games to face C.D San Antonio
, a team of mid-table mediocrity. We showed them the difference in class in front of the home crowd, the usual suspect Eduardo Cañas put in yet another top quality performance, I'm beginning to run out of superlatives for him.

I forgot to mention in the previous update about the cup draw for the Copa Venezuela. We were given the tough task of facing Liga Movistar (Premier Division) club Deportivo La Guaira.
It was always going to be an uphill battle and I can't fault the players in any shape or form as they were put to the sword by clearly better opposition who are getting paid at least ten times the amount of mine.

September League Table
Despite another undefeated month, it's not enough to even be in the top three! Four teams each have a game in hand over us and it will be interesting to see how we use it. We can't overtake them because they're four points ahead but for now I think 5th
place is a pretty solid return.
September Player of the Month
This is getting a little repetitive, isn't it? I won't elaborate too much. I've already gone over just how many goals this guy has scored, it seems harder for Eduardo Cañas
to miss than score at the moment. He's scored 9 in 6 competitively and it will remain to be seen just how long this form can continue!

Disaster has struck. While Eduardo Cañas has been our main goalscoring threat it's hard to look past Jesús Reyes
being our most complete player. I have been impressed with his solid displays so far but in the game against CD San Antonio he twisted his ankle, which will leave him out for around two months. Dervis Barrera, our young backup, now has his opportunity to stake a claim for first team football, let's see what he can do!
