FC Irlande Ladies 1
On Saturday afternoon, the First Women’s Team of FC Irlande lost 6-2 in the match against Vosselaar.
In the first half, FC Irlande had difficulties to get into the game. In addition, Laurie had to be replaced shortly after kick-off due to injury (we wish her a speedy recovery). The team from Vosselaar took the lead after a good quarter of an hour with a header after a corner. The 2-0 followed quite quickly after our defense was overrun by the opposing striker, who finished the horizontal cross in front of the goal in the lower left corner. Even though FC Irlande continued to keep their heads up, the 3-0 followed, and just before the break a Vosselaar striker managed to intercept an unlucky cross pass from our defender, putting the team up 4-0.
After the break, FC Irlande made a tactical change, which worked better. After a great assist from Virgi, Brenda was able to reduce the score to 4:1. Although FC Irlande had now found better into the game, Vosselaar was able to extend the gap again after a diagonal pass in front of goal, where our defender was one step too late, and increased to 5:1. However, FC Irlande held on to the tactical change, with success. Sarah was fouled in an attack in the sixteen-meter area, whereupon Tess safely converted the penalty and reduced to 5:2. Shortly before the end of the game, after a failed attack by Vosselaar, the ball could not be cleared properly by FC Irlande. The opposing team intercepted the ball at the sixteen-meter area and finalized the result with a clear shot from the corner of the sixteen-meter area to 6:2.
Despite the defeat, heads remain up. Training will continue and work on the weaknesses, which is why we, FC Irlande, remain positive.
The ladies 1 were playing on Sibret’s land on Sunday. After a decent start, they conceded 3 goals in ten minutes. Laurie reduced the score to 1-3 and both teams went back to the changing rooms on that score at half-time. The girls in green showed a great spirit and scored a goal very early in the second half. Two more goals were scored shortly after, one for each team. Laurie was on fire with a hat-trick. The end of the game was unfortunately much more successful for Sibret, despite several attempts from the girls in green.
Third game of the season starts with a good attitude from our girls, good pressure and lots of opportunities, despite a very quick goal from their side at the 2nd minute.
We equalize quite fast at the 6th with a great pressing from Laurie up front.
But they keep pushing and with a good football combination from Westerlo, the score is 3-1 after 9 minutes.
Dilara unfortunately gets injured after half an hour and Sephora replaces her immediately.
We try to keep it up before break but they score another time.
Two more changes at halftime and we are ready to fight again !
But bad luck again, Clara gets a (deserved) red card and needs to be replaced in the goal. We finish the game with 10 players and it gets more and more difficult to compete with a solid team as Westerlo.
Final score : 1-6.
Sunny and warm day at the Royale Union Sportive Loyer Stadium to play the second game of the season of the FC Irlande Ladies I.
Hard and intense game in a short field that complicated the game to the girls in green. Loyers opened the scored in the 25th minute taking advantage of a misunderstanding between our girls and the referee. 10 mins later, Laurie, who was playing her first game with the FCI, tied the game after a nice shot straight to the goal. The first half ended 1-1.
In the second half, Loyers scored 2 fast goals which difficulted the options of bringing the first 3 points home and which set the final score 3-1. The game did not end well for the Ladies. Tammy, who was replacing Clara in the goal, was injured from her ankle. Sad ending for the Ladies 1 who had the 3rd serious injury of the season.
Come on Ladies !!
