FC Irlande Ladies 2

Latest results

The fourth game of the season took place on a crispy autumn day in beautiful Auderghem. Ladies 2 were ready to welcome a new local rival, R.R.C. D’Etterbeek, who were promoted to P1 for this season. While our friends from Etterbeek were hungry to win their first points of the season, the green ladies were just as determined to continue their unbeaten streak.

Only three minutes after the kick-off whistle, FC Irlande hit the net for the first time, after a beautiful interplay between Gillian and Priscila. Etterbeek kept their cool and continued challenging the Irish defense. Thanks to the great discipline of our fullbacks Lily and Alicia, the opponent’s attacking attempts were stopped time and again. Several dangerous passes and attacking attempts were also intercepted by our solid central defender AJ and the Finnish midfield engine duo Lotta and Vilja.

After several good attempts following quick runs from Marianne (a.k.a ”the Happiest Winger on Earth”) and great passing in the center, the ball hit the net again in the 32nd minute. Another two goals for FCI were buried in the net before the halftime break, including a beautiful shot from our tireless Rebby.

With a safe 4-0 lead for the second half, our FCI ladies could have safely relaxed and settled for a quiet second half. But instead, the remaining 45 minutes turned out to be at least as good a spectacle as the first half. With always hard-working Su and Shadia’s lively legs on the field, there was a lot left to give. Shadia did a strong job as usual and slipped beautifully past Etterbeek’s defenders and slammed in an elegant goal. A great long run on the left side by fullback Lily and a clean finish resulted in yet another goal. And above all – the Priscila Show was far from over. Her goal balance for the night ended with no less than six goals (hooray! And happy birthday)!

The Etterbeek side did not stop fighting despite the merciless FCI scoring machine. They created a couple of attempts, which were all safely stopped by our wall Mariana. Some great coaching by Martin also kept the FCI defenders focused and motivated to keep a clean sheet throughout the game.

With a final score of 9-0 for the greens, the post-game beers tasted sweeter than ever.

Special kudos to our iron women Priscila and AJ who warmed up before the game by driving almost all the way to Luxembourg to play with FCI Ladies 1. Another word of praise for Alicia and Alex, who stepped in to strengthened the Ladies 2 squad. That’s some real club spirit!

The game starts, but White Star is able to score quickly at just 7 minutes, making the score 0-1. The ladies have learnt from their experiences last season and do not give up.

Both teams keep fighting, but no more goals come before the second half.

However, not long after, at 60 minutes, White Star is able to catch up and make the score 2-2. Despite the excessive heat, the Ladies do not give up. The last minutes of the game are filled with an amazing fight and a few great attacks.

On Saturday, 9 September the Ladies 2 team took on a challenge against a team who had dominated them on the pitch last season. The Ladies, after training diligently all of pre-season and winning their first match of the season 4-1, played a long and intense match against RFC Saint-Michel A. For most of the first half the ladies kept the score at 0 as the intensities rose as both teams fought hard for a goal, until Priscila scored their first goal from just outside the penalty box in the 36th minute. Their spirits were raised and they were all excited their trainings had paid off, but they all stayed focus and finished the match with a score of 1-0. GO IRELAND!

What a beautiful day to be wearing green. The sun was shining, quite strongly for Belgian standards, but Ladies 2 was ready to embark on their first game of the season.

Union Saint Gilloise had moved up from P2 and gave all their might the second the game started, but FC Ireland showed a deeper strength that brought them a glorious victory.

The defense and midfield battled for the ball and sent quite a few balls up to the strikers and wings. Specifically one ball landed upon winger Francesca who was determined to never let go of the ball until it smashed into the back on the net. It was magnificent. Not long after though, Union showed their might and placed a ball in the back on the net as well, but this didn’t disrupt FC Ireland’s force.
In the second half, newtime Ida striker gathered the ball and made a perfectly placed cross for Lily who easily hit the ball into the back of the net as well.
FC Ireland did not stop. Momo’s powerful shot hit the cross bar only once before she lobbed a very high ball, impossible for the keep to stop. The crowd went wild.
The teams battled on. Everyone sensed yet another goal was near. Through ball after through ball was sent, everyone trying to get another goal. Once again, Francesca battled for the ball and Rebby was able to secure a shot making it impossible for the keeper to stop it!
Final score 4-1! Well done ladies, 100 % effort from all the ladies present. Well done!
