WSCAI Futsal Regional Results (Limerick)

19 November 2013

LIT advanced to the National Final of the WSCAI Futsal tournament following victory at the Regional event held in Limerick IT on Tuesday.

With only 3 teams in attendance it was down to who topped the group in a round robin event and with 2 wins from 2 LIT move on to the next stage.

The opening game between LIT and UL B was a tight affair with both teams creating chances on goal. A good individual display by UL player Elin Gustaffson scoring 3 goals meant that LIT found it tough to pull away. However, as time went on the overall squad strength of LIT proved the difference with 2 goals each for Lisa Maher, Melissa Molloy and Patrice Delaney and won from Michelle Masterson. Elisabeth Houland got one back for UL B but it finished 7-4 to LIT in the end.

UL A then faced off against UL B with both teams knowing qualification was still possible. However it was the fantastic Elin Gustaffson yet again that proved the difference here with 4 goals in the game taking her individual tally to 7 for the day. Two more for Elisabeth Houland and one for Lisa Menke made sure that the UL A team could not come back and a solitary goal from Grace O'Donnell wasn't enough to spark a comeback making the final score 7-1 to UL B.

In the final game LIT took on UL A with the Limerick IT girls knowing a draw was enough to qualify. However, they went all out for the win and went 3-0 up in a matter of minutes. Again a solitary goal from Grace O'Donnell was not enough for UL A as goals from Emma Corbett, Patrice Delaney, two from Melissa Molloy and four from Lisa Maher meant the LIT won 8-1 and qualified for the next stage.

Top goalscorer on the day was UL B's Elin Gustaffson with 7 goals followed closely by LIT's Lisa Maher with 6.
