Sunday morning and the ladies II girls woke up very motivated after having spent a great “Canadian Thanksgiving” weekend together. After having indulged in great food, carefully prepared by our favorite chef Sof, the team had – lots of – extra energy to spend during the game!
The girls in green pressed from the beginning and early on opened the score. The team was playing strong and barely took note of the hot weather that was back to Belgium but the pitch looked more like a potato field than a football ground and that created an extra level of difficulty. The first half ended with the FCI ladies leading 1 – 5 … but that didn’t mean it was an easy game. The ball was bouncing all around and it was very hard to keep the ball on the ground.
In the second half the heat started to catch-up with us and it was hard to keep the intense rhythm we had started the match with, but we managed the game well enough to finish with 2 – 5 on the score so everyone could go vote happily after another great win.
FC Irlande – Ladies II vs. Mt. St. Guibert, 6/10/2018 Auderghem Belgium
The game hosted by FC Irlande started calmly and evenly, as both teams took time for eloquent probing of each other. With every minute however The Ladies in Green were diligently gaining field inch by inch, armed in coach Alex’s golden tools carved carefully for the night: Attention and Communication.
In short time the team of Mt. St. Guibert was faced with our constant presence on their half, culminating in robust attacks, run via both the wings (Lovisa and Sandra, later Ruth), as well as the middle (Anita, Sofie, Marion and Lotte), in search of the striker (Raphaële, later Ines). After dramatic dribbling in the penalty field and a couple of dangerous attempts on the goal, Flavia wisely took control of the bouncing ball, hitting it hard straight into the right window, leaving the goalkeeper with no chance and all the players simply speechless. This breathtaking goal cleared the path for other ones in the second half by Lisa, who delighted the public with her wide spectrum of football skills, scoring the second goal for Irlande after dribbling quarter of the pitch, the third from a free kick, and final one from a penalty.
Our defense (Pauline, Flavia, Delphine, including Mariana as THE goalkeeper) continues to pride our team, too: the line was almost impregnable for the Red—And-Black Stripes, with one and only counterstrike resulting in one and only and lucky – though deserved – goal for the Guests from Mt. St. Guibert.
Final score: 4:1 (1:1) for FC Irlande!
Ps. Special thanks to our supporters that night: you basically shielded us from enormous pressure exerted by the other team and its fans. Chapeau bas to you girls and boys!
FC Ireland entered the pitch with a special coach formation of Mariana, Dastan and Carmen armed with Alex’s instructions.
During the whole game our girls dominated the pitch. Our defense line with Flavia, Lotte, Pauline and Lovisa did an amazing job. Thanks to great teamwork, they got a lot of off-sides. We have learned to play more and more with our goalie Mariana.
In the 30th minute Girls in Green had a offensive corner. Lotte got the chance to shoot and kicked it straight in the goal! Already 0-1 for us! Union Lasne Ohain got through very little, but in the last minute of the second half they made use of it efficiently, resulting in a 1-1 during half time.
The opponents played with a very high defense line which gave us some trouble with off-side. Fortunately, our speedy Francesca gave everything and scored two amazing goals!
All in all, we see a tremendous progress. Huge thanks to all the help-coaches for advising and shouting us through the game!
Final score 1-3 for FC Ireland
A motivated team, with an even more motivated coach, lined up under 90 minutes of light rain, ready for our first 3 points of the season. The Irish ladies dominated most of the match but Boisfort had some dangerous moments, including some created by a very fast young attacker. While the first half ended on 0-0, in the second half Lisa gave us the lead through a penalty. In this joy, the girls in green lost temporarily their focus and – just the minute after – Boisfort equalized on another penalty. Luckily, following a direct freekick by Lisa, the opponent’s goalkeeper choose to try to stop the slippery ball on her feet which gave us the final score of a well-deserved 2-1. The celebration went on into the night :-).
On a nice Septembre evening, the ladies in Green went to meet F.C. Survoyés for their second game of the season.
The spirit was upbeat and the team focused. The ladies showed some great football with beautiful triangle passes between Lisa, Ellie, Lovisa and Marion that brought us a first goal attempt. The first of many.
Then followed several attempts by Ellie and Lisa, assist from Sandra.
Unfortunately on a corner, the ladies in green let in a goal.
On the defensive side, Flavia and Susana epically defended our goal and managed to turn the game more than once towards attack.
Lovisa made yet another attempt on the left side.
During second half, Ruth and Lisa made some further attempts. A second goal on a corner was scored by F.C. Survoyes, but ladies kept their fighting spirit. Francesca came in fresh in the second half. Her entrance was followed by a beautiful goal by Lisa from the right side to the left goal corner.
The opponents played less football then relied on long balls from their goalie. The ladies in green can be proud of their game and will continue working to turn the next game into a victory.
