First loss for Woods and FC Indiana

On Friday Lisa-Marie Woods and FC Indiana let in their first goals and dropped points against Minnesota.  

"The match ended 1-1, something which felt like a loss when you look at the chance statistics of 22-2 in our favour", said Lisa-Marie Woods to FotballMagasinet after a 10-hour coach trip back home from Minnesota on Saturday.

The first two league matches ended with 4-0 wins, and the team were big favourites against Minnesota, but they managed only one goal and one point.  "We gave away an early own-goal after only five minutes and after that it was a search for an equaliser", said Woods.  The equaliser came half an hour later and the second half was a long contest for a winner which never came.

"We made some brilliant attacks with a lot of two-touch combinations, and created a lot of chances, but too often we were blocked.  We continued the pressure in the second half in the belief it would go our way, but the frustration grew and the match ended 1-1", said the just-25-year-old from Oslo, Norway.

Many would blame bad luck and fortunate opponents who managed a draw with only two chances on goal, but the studying football professional pointed to problems in her own team.  "We were good at creating chances but we cannot blame bad luck when we sink only one out of 22 chances.  It was a lack of skills on our side and we have to work on netting the ball in matches like that where the opponents lie low and defend.  This result is a big disappointment for us, but we shall train well this week and look ahead to the next match", was Lise-Marie Woods' own explanation for her team's ineffectiveness in Minnesota on Friday.

In the previous game the former Vålerenga and Asker FK player scored twice, but like her teammates she found things harder in her third match out on the wing.  "Like the others I am failing to net the chances I have and that is a disappointment.  But it could be said that I created more chances for the others than those which were created for me, so I have build on making these chances and being more cynical in the decisive stages of the play to produce results".

"We should have decided this game early but we were just not good enough today.  And they were lucky with the own-goal we scored.  It was a loss", concluded Lisa-Marie Woods to FotballMagasinet.

Women’s international soccer returns on Friday, July 17 when Irish Women’s National Team takes the stage at Kuntz Stadium against the Women’s Premier Soccer League (WPSL) powerhouse the Chicago Breeze, 7:05 kickoff.

Action off the pitch will feature book signing by Rupert from the TV show "Survivor" and "Survivor All Stars" who will be available at 6:00PM to autograph his latest book, "Rupert Just Being Me".

Rupert Boneham, Indiana resident is best known for his distinctive appearance, which includes a huge beard, tie-dye shirt and large size, as well as a boisterous, friendly-but-focused personality. And of course, for surviving the scrutiny of 38 million television viewers in 2004 on "Survivor: Pearl Islands," as well as winning $1 million on "Survivor: All Stars," after receiving 85 percent of the votes cast by the American public.

Event organizers will be raffling off some of Rupert’s items from Survivor and all the proceeds will go to help Rupert’s Kids!

"Ireland is excited to join Rupert, FC Indiana and the Chicago Breeze in supporting “Rupert’s Kids," said Ireland manager Noel King. "We hope that our involvement helps make this event a success for the charity and also for professional women’s soccer in Indiana."

Before the game (5:30-6:30pm), members of FC Indiana will conduct an interactive clinic and autograph session for young players ages 6-12.

Off the field, fans will get the opportunity to meet international superstars Emma Byrne (Arsenal and Ireland, pictured), Laura Del Rio (FC Indiana and Spain) and Monica Ocampo (FC Indiana and Mexico) and the entire Irish, FC Indiana and Chicago Breeze sides after the game for an autograph session.

Indianapolis’s own national recording artist and pop sensation Lynda Sayyah will be singing our National Anthem!
