O ataque dos 100 gols

0
0
In the 1927 Campeonato Paulista (the version run by APEA) Santos racked up 100 goals in 16 games, an average of  6.25 goals per game. Remarkably this wasn't enough to secure the title. Palestra Itália were champions, having lost 1 game fewer than Santos (and done the double over them).

The front line, known as  O ataque dos 100 gols (the attack of 100 goals) is generally listed as Omar, Camarão, Feitiço, Araken and  Evangelista. Siriri also deserves to be included. The principal scorers shared the goals as follows:Araken Patusca – 36, Feitiço - 28,  Camarão - 15, Evangelista - 7, Siriri - 6, Omar - 6.   
Araken
Araken Patusca (Abraham Patusca da Silveira)
Santos was in the genes of Abraham Patusca da Silveira. His father was founder and president of the club. Araken made his debut as a 15 year old, scoring 4 goals in his first match. In all he scored 177 goals in 193 matches for Santos. In 1925 he had toured with Paulistano , and wrote a book about  the tour called Os reis do futebol. Unsurprisingly he was top scorer in the Campeonato Paulista of 1927. My calculation of his tally for that season is 36. Araken played 1 game for Brazil, at the 1930 World Cup. 

Feitiço
Feitiço (Luís Macedo Matoso)
The name Feitiço translates to something like 'magic spell'. Wikipedia states that he represented Uruguay but this is incorrect (he did spend some time at Peñarol). He played 1 official international for Brazil. Feitiço got off to a ridiculously good start in the 1927 season, scoring 27 goals in 9 consecutive matches. In the Paulista v Carioca match of  November 13th a remarkable incident occured. Rio were awarded a penalty and the resulting dispute held the game up for 30 minutes. The President of Brazil was in attendance, and even he was unable to persuade the Paulista players to continue. They left the field. Feitiço was then suspended by Santos for his role in this incident. 
Feitiço was a consistently prolific scorer. In 151 games for Santos he scored 214 goals. He was top scorer in the Campeonato Paulista in 6 seasons.

Camarão (Aníbal de Andrade Torres)

Camarão, whose nickname means Shrimp, was a versatile player, a capable half back, outside right or centre forward. He played 270 games for Santos, scoring 150 goals. He later managed the club. 

Evangelista (João Evangelista Rocha dos Santos), Siriri (Jose Torres) and Omar played their part, sharing 19 goals, but at present I have been unable to unearth much information about them.
