A loss is never easy to digest. Let me tell you a tale. After a solid warm up FC Ireland Ladies 2 commenced, eagerly, their game against Boitsfort. Unfortunately, Boitsfort was equally eager and scored their first goal very quickly. FC Ireland did not let this put their heads down. Stepping up to each ball and creating combinations allowed Gillian, with her amazing hustle and determination to score the first goal. Many more shots were taken including a beautiful shot by Pauline that just nicked the crossed bar. The defensive line remained strong. Once again, with hustle and determination, Clelia, with her defender moves, slammed the ball into the back of the net. FC Ireland stood strong, but Boitsfort had more. They snuck in a goal after the half and were able to secure another goal in the last minutes making them win the game. As I said, losing is not easy to digest, but it is part of the game and one must learn to move forward positively in order to improve. Team dynamics is what it is called. How will we act and think among team members to improve? How will we self-motivate and bring confidence to each team member? These are questions that we can ask ourselves so we can move forward as a team. And remember we’re here to have fun. Go FC Ireland!
