R. Union St-Gilloise
The lights shined bright at home in Auderghem for an authoritative victory by FCI Ladies 1 over R. Union St-Gilloise A.
After kickoff, the FCI ladies defense absorbed initial USG pressure well and began to find great success in counter-attacks through the pace of Parker and Rebecca. A corner kick halfway through the first half saw Isabel collect the cleared ball and set it on a platter for Rebecca who bent it like Beckham into the far post’s side-netting. A little later, the USG keeper slipped on the wet pitch while receiving yet another back pass from her defense and staring down an oncoming Parker, who was then able to easily slot the ball in.
The second half began with the FCI ladies moving the ball better and holding posession. USG pulled one back at about the 75th minute thanks to an impressive bicycle kick in front of goal. USG’s late push for an equalizer, however, was no match for Olivia’s line-breaking pass, Mel’s speed down the left-wing, and Michele’s calm finish in the box to make it 3-1. The team’s collective defense saw out the rest of the match.
The only question remains is…where do we find the official after-match interviews of FCI captain Isabel and Coach Ben?
