On September 10, 2017 at Ceylon Park, Dorchester, Dinamo FC took on Raiz CV in the 2017 NELASA Emilio Raposo Cup.

Dinamo FC scored an early goal at about 15 into the first half, taking the lead.  Raiz CV scored a matching goal 15 minutes later to put the score at 1-1 and this score held until half time.  A few minutes into the second half, Raiz CV score their second goal taking the lead for the first time.  Then in dramatic fashion, Dinamo managed to net the tying goal at the end of the second half making the score 2-2, and forcing the game to the 30 minutes over time, 15 minutes each half.

Again, Raiz CV score the third goal very early in the start of OT.   Then yet again, Dinamo scored in the last minute of the second half OT, forcing the game to be decided on penalty shots.

Dinamo FC  was able to convert more PKs, thus is the winner of the NELASA EMILIO RAPOSO CUP.
