FC Irlande Ladies edged out of a tight Brabant Cup Final

The biggest game for any FC Irlande team in our history disappointingly ended in defeat as the Ladies were beaten 2-1 by Rapide Wezemaal in the Brabant Cup Final. Game was played in the Stade Machtens in Molenbeek ,a ground of 12,000 capacity and many FC Irlande club members and their families came out to cheer them on,

After a difficult first 10 minutes the Ladies got into their stride and began to dominate the game. Isa opened the scoring when she chased down a bad clearance and shot home. Things could have been even better when Aurelie hit a great shot from distance which crashed off the bar. At half time it was 1-0 and the feeling was that we were worth the lead and could go on to win the game. In the 2nd half the opposition began strongly and we knew it wasn't going to be easy. Unfortunately about 15 minutes into the half an error presented them with an equaliser to make it 1-1. We were struggling to match the 1st half performance and were being pushed back . They then scored their second when their fast centre forward sprinted on to a ball and outstripped our defence to make it 2-1 . We tried to get back in the game but the final pass just wasn't there. Just before the end we looked as if we could have equalised but it didn't quite come off. Final score 1-2.

Although we lost today the team showed great character to keep going until the final whistle. They have had a fantastic season and been a great credit to FC Irlande. 

Well done Ladies
