1sts and 2nds games are off but Vets 1 gain vital victory (20.01.2018)

1sts and 2nds were due to play on the same pitch at Tourinnois but the ground was deemed unplayable and the matches were postponed.

3rds did play on a good day for playing football, snow, rain, cold...  and a good opposition... As we expected Trinquant was ready for this match,  and  us too in comparison to last week.  11 irish warriors on the pitch show a good football and a good spirit but the opposition punished us on one of our mistakes. The boys in green equalized on a nice move with a free kick as often: Rafa for Ionut...  1-1 and the second half start on the same level of intensity with a high pressure...  Unfortunately,  the tiredness appeared with 11 players versus 14 and they scored à second time on a confusing ball...  We pushed for the equalizer but the legs were not there and we can't finalize our greats moves...  Final score 2-1,  a defeat but a good match compared on last week...  MOTM Paddy,  great defense on his wing but normal,  it's his weather 

4ths lost 1:0. Dominated the game: 14:3 shots on target and 9:1 corners but didn't find the back of the net. Opposition caught them with a long ball and a nice lob from outside the box.

Vets 1 had a vital game away to Trinquant . Strengthened at the last minute by Sigve and Darragh after the 1sts game was postponed a strong team took the field but within 5 minutes we were 1 0 down when they scored in the corner. We equalised when Sigve scored. Game was fairly even but we had chances, We then took the lead when Emanuel scored with a great shot . 2 1 at half time and we were looking to keep the momentum up in the 2nd half. The game then became a bit scrappy as both sides struggled to impose themselves. They lost a couple of good players to injury but we were not able to control the game. Captain David entered the game with about 20 minutes left to play and we became more settled. From a breakaway Ollie extended the lead but they scored from a great header and it was 3-2 with nerves jangling. With about 5 or 6 minutes left a good move resulted in Alex lobbing a great ball over the keeper but the defender handled on the line and it was a stonewall penalty. David gave the keeper no chance as he put it away to make it 4 2. Dave then replaced Ollie with a few minutes remaining  and a great move with Sigve breaking through the defence and squaring it to Dave who put Sigve through to score his 2nd and make the final score 5 2.  A vital win and a great team perfformance . MOTM Sasha.  

Vets 2 earned a hard fought win under harsh circumstances, Oscar put Vets2 1 up, but a penalty and a shot from outside of the box meant Vets2 were 1 down suddenly. Oscar scored again to equalise. Second half yielded few chances but Oscar bagged a hattrick to put the men in green one up. Solid defending and a vital save by Ken secured the three points. Massive performance by all but Oscar was one again pick of the bunch, MoTM with 16 goals on the tally now!!!

Ladies 1 were playing BUFC Ladies at Stade Fallon and were 6 1 up at half time . Their goal had come from a bad defensive mistake. In the 2nd half we continued to dominate and the goals flowed but another defensive error left them in to score again. Final score 11 -2 with Isa starring by scoring 6 goals.

Ladies 2 played on Friday night and had tough opposition Etterbeek. They put in a brave performance but lost 4 1. Ellie scored the goal.
