BRUSSELS Belgium (Reuters) - Belgian women's soccer team SK Berlaar had to stomach a 50-1 defeat against rival KV Mechelen on Saturday because their goalkeeper had opted to attend a music concert instead a local newspaper said.

"Our keeper went to Pukkel Pop. That's why substitute goalkeeper Charlotte Jacobs told Het Laatste Nieuws daily on Monday.

KV Mechelen scored their first goal after only four seconds.

"At half-time the score was 27-0. But after half-time we were able to recover.

"We had to stomach only 23 goals and we scored once ourselves right at the end. They allowed us to score. That was sweet of them Jacobs added."
