For their second game of the season, first one away, the ladies in green went with a full squad to Loyers, to play one of the toughest and most technically skillful teams of the league. Sarah brilliantly covered their best player giving her no room to breathe. Parker challenged their defense accompanied by Louise and Cintia. Momo and Magda kept a tight midfield, allowing no passes through. Isa, Geanni, Michel and Rebecca in the defensive line took Loyers’ attacks apart and didn’t let them through. Yet, in spite of keeping a tight formation and having a couple of great shots, the ladies ended up the first half losing 4-0.
Thanks to the great coaching and words of encouragement from Ben and Hélène, the ladies went onto play the second half with renewed forces and a clear strategy in mind. The ladies played their beautiful game and gave loyers a very hard time, scoring not one (Parker), not two (Mel) but three (Parker) goals! Goes without saying also thanks to the timely additions of Mel, Nawal, Priscila and Lilly who helped the team to push harder and end with a great 4-3 score.
All in all, one of those matches the ladies can be proud of despite not bringing the 3 points home. Shout out, to the amazing ladies who came to complete the squad even having played a previous match on the same day. And to our supporters, especially to the youngest and MVP, Sutton.
