This Saturday, Ladies 2 were playing Union Lasne-Ohain at home. We knew this would be a very tough game; ULO has one of the best attacks of the championship and is currently ranked 3rd in the league. However, we were quite pumped from our first victory last week and got on the pitch determined to play our best.
As expected, their attack was very strong, with very fast players infiltrating from both sides. They managed to score 3 goals, including one penalty.
Half-time score: 0-3.
The second half was just as tough as the first one, with us doing our best to build forward, but not able to add the finishing touch.
Towards the end of the second half, the subs brought some fresh energy on the pitch and remobilized the troops. Our work eventually paid when we scored a goal in the last 10 minutes.
Final score: 1-8.
We were expecting this Game against Ixelles. We knew that it could be our first win, we had the Spirit and the group.
We worked so hard to arrive there and we did it. It was maybe not our best football but we were one team on the field.
We dominated Ixelles from the first second until the last.
It was magical we were all one on the field and this announces a great second part of the season !
Goals: Violette and Marine
We arrived there on a very cold Friday.
We knew it would be a hard game, we already lost against them 2 weeks before during a cup game.
But we had the motivation.
The score is severe but it is the first Time that we understood that playing football it’s playing as a team with all the players, the one on the field but also the one on the bench with our amazing coach
Not everything is perfect but we have the basis to do better and to become stronger and stronger.
See next week for our maybe first win !
White star is always a hard opponent but always a good game to play.
This Time was different we did some great stuff and played really well for 20 min.
We even score 2 amazing goals thanks to Pauline and Marine (great magnificent new players of P1)
But this game took a lot from us. We were not expecting this loss and for the group it was really hard to look up again.
We have a lot of work to do and we need ton concentrate a lot more.
Each game is a lesson that we must learn to grow up as a team.
Goals: Pauline and Marine.
Disappointing result, as we could have beat them.
Poor refereeing by their own staff.
Disappointing end of the game with a typical brawl before going back to the locker rooms.
Not our favorite match of the season so far.
Half-time score: 0-8
Final score: 0-18
FC Irlande VS Jodoigne 1-5
FC Irlande’s P1 team was hosting Jodoigne this Saturday October 2nd, to play their 5th match of the season.
The chosen formation was a 4-3-3. We borrowed Rossa Moreira and Kelly Vanhandenhoven from the D2 team to strengthen our team.
As expected, our opponent was very difficult to counter; their midfield distributed the ball perfectly and their offensive actions generally led them to score quickly.
However, it is fair to say that FC Ireland fought well! In the first half, the defence resisted magnificently until we conceded a first goal, and a second from a free kick after a small hand foul. Our midfield will have a few attempts but none resulted in a goal yet.
Half time score: 0-2
In the second half, we had a wonderful breakthrough from Kelly, offensive midfielder, who scores our first goal, followed by a magnificent attempt from our central defender.
The score will remain at 3-1 until we conceded two goals on corner.
FC Ireland played a very good game against Jodoigne, who is always top of the league. We are impatiently looking forward for the rest of the season!
Final score: 1-5
FC. Suryoyés Bruxellois is out for the season.
FC Ireland’s P1 played its 3rd game of the championship season, against ASE Chastre, this Saturday 18th of September.
Our ladies were once again aligned in a 4-3-3 formation, as were the opponents. Our team didn’t get into the game immediately and were too nice: the ladies were watching the game happened and didn’t go towards the ball. This cost the team a first goal, with an infiltration on the left wing as of the 3rd minute. Right before the drinking-break, Chastre again scores its 2nd goal.
The break seemed to have reinvigorated our players; at the 33rd minute, Rossa Moreira recuperates the ball in the midfield, dribbles a couple of players, and tries a shot on goal. The goalie stops it but Chloé Liradelfo follows on second post and scores.
The second half is very different, as our defensive efforts are paying off and the game can be played forward.
Despite the will of the Chastre ladies to play the offside, we managed to find depth and try 3 duals with goalie, but no luck.
Our ladies 2 were dominated but continued their efforts. Unfortunately, the game ends on a controversial own-goal, followed by a double yellow card and the expulsion of one of our players.
We can remember from this game the strong character of our ladies who woke up during the game, showed a strong drive to play and make progress – proving the real ambition of our team.
Final score: 1-3
Sunday 12th of September, our Ladies 2 headed over to BX Brussels’ grounds for their second game of the championship.
We were facing a very good team of BX Brussels, very fair-play, who had strengthened each of their lines since last year.
Our Ladies 2 found themselves facing a very strong team, who wasn’t afraid of contact to recuperate balls and that’s what our team lacked: a lot of fierceness.
Half-time score: 2-0
After returning from the lockers, following our coach’s speech, we returned on the pitch with a stronger will but we still did not manage to open our score and were defeated by this BX Brussels team, who kept their positions well and were very well led by their captain – who closes the score in the last minute.
Final score: 4-0
Samedi 4 septembre, nos ladies 2 recevaient l’équipe du FC Saint-Michel pour entamer cette toute première journée du championnat.
Grande nouveauté dans notre championnat: changements volants illimités et jusqu’à 16 filles alignées sur la feuille de match.
Nous jouions en 4-3-3 et l’équipe adverse aussi. Ce fût un match très équilibré avec cependant quelques trous dans le milieu de terrain et parfois un manque d’appels des flans pour partir en profondeur mais un très gros travail de notre ligne défensive et de notre gardienne.
Nos Ladies 2 ont été menées à la 24ème minute mais n’ont pas réfrénées leurs efforts afin d’aller chercher un but à la 65ème minute par Sarah Touil sur un assist de Pauline Boivin.
On peut aussi noter les nombreuses bonnes combinaisons entre les joueuses et l’envie de jouer de chacune d’elles, qui sont la preuve d’une réelle ambition et amélioration de notre équipe.
On notera les débuts en championnat de nos nouvelles recrues Maria Nemesis Philippas, Céline Kersmaekers, Kathlyne Guellec, Sarah Kahya et Pauline Boivin qui n’ont pas lésinés sur les efforts pour obtenir le tout premier point en championnat P1.
