1sts and 3rds gain important victories (02.12.2017)

1sts were playing away against MTM in Rosieres. We started well and had a couple of chances but after 25 minutes it was the opposition who took the lead when they scored after a breakaway. Their lead didn't last long as Nair sent over a great corner and Nick headed in to make it 1-1. We were playing well but MTM always looked dangerous . Just before the break they took the lead again when their forward was allowed to chest down the ball and setup a shot into the corner to make it 2-1 at half time. Poor goal to concede. After the break we again equalised when Sigve put Nick through one on one and he calmly slotted it into the corner to make it 2-2. All 3 subs came on and about 5 -10 minutes from the end we got the winner when they gave the ball away and Karim scored. Last few minutes were tense as they went for the equaliser but we held out and took home a valuable 3 points.

2nds drew 1-1 in a tightly contested game out in chilly Rixensart. After conceding cheaply inside the first 15 minutes we responded just before half time through Sean after good work by Neil. Decent result but we felt we could have got more out of the game. Goal: Sean. Booked: Thomas Earl, Euan.

3rds were engaged in a top of the table clash against Sicula . The home game in Nossegem was marred with a lot of fouls and we were pleased to see that a top referee had been assigned to the return  match. Both teams started well and the game was played at a fast pace. After 12 minutes we were awarded a penalty which Stefan dispatched giving the keeper no chance. 1- 0 and that's how it stayed at half time. Rodrigo came on for Gregor and the 2nd half was very much like the first with the two teams battling away and chances at either end. Francois made a number of great saves. Quite a few yellow cards were shown and one of their players got a red but the referee had a firm control of the game. Less than 10 minutes from the end nerves were eased when the ball was crossed to top scorer Ionut in the box and he made no mistake to put us 2 up. More chances for us with Sergiu rattling the crossbar to nearly make it 3. Final score 0-2 and we now go 5 points clear at the top. Great team spirit again with everybody fighting for every ball as if their life depended upon it.  

4ths were very focused, concentrated and agressive to draw against the top of the league. We played very tight and defended very well. On top of that we had a wall as keeper so the opponent had no chance to score. We could have lost that fight at the last second but our keeper saved a penalty. On the other hand we had 2-3 nice counter-attaks in the last 10 minutes that could have also brought us the 3 points. At the end, well deserved point that will count at the end!!”................

Vets1 lost 6:4. First half to forget. At 5 1 down at half time  the machine started to roll in the 2nd half  and  had it lasted 90 minutes, we might have drawn. Ollie  and Emanuel (2 goals each). Great spirit in 2nd half.  MOTM Emanuel.

Vets2 put in a very solid performance to earn a draw away at league leaders Etincelle. Great effort by the entire team. Luuk could have nicked a winner late in  the second but a draw was just reward in the end for a good tactical performance, hard work and effort. MoTM Pietro for a very good display at left full. Good displays by debut man Patrick and surprise guest Antonio Nobre

Ladies 1 won 4 1. Very good 1st half. 3 0 at half time. 2nd half was less intense where we were mostly in control  also because of the cold. Big game next week against RAS Jodoigne. 

Ladies 2 played later in the  evening at Auderghem and were involved in another thrilling game. They faced a good opponent Chastres at home. After 15minutes it was 1-1. The team spirit was there and ladies were dominating the game with a great 5-1. But at the end Chastres came back and the game ended 5-5. Great spirit and great game!
