Oadby & Wigston Dynamo 2 Leicester City Ladies Lions 4


In a game played in awful conditions on a pitch reminiscent of the old Baseball Ground both teams put on an excellent game of football played in the fine Corinthian spirit with no little amount of skill and nice passing moves.

Leicester City Ladies opened the scoring when “Minty” slotted home a pass from “CC” and the lead was doubled after 20 minutes when Jamie netted after a fine run. “Mini” made it three for Leicester City Ladies with a strong shot from a Lions corner,
Lions goalie Sadie saved bravely from a dangerous Oadby & Wigston Dynamos attack.

The second half saw Oadby & Wigston Dynamos come back strongly and dragged a goal back after a good period of possession in which Lions defenders Sophie, Shakeela, Toyah and Chloe were stretched to keep an attack minded Oadby & Wigston at bay.
The Lions finally put the game to bed after a well worked short corner with “Mops” who put in Jamie to finish well.

There was still time for Oadby & Wigston to reduce arrears back to 4-2 and that is how it finished with credit to both sets of players for putting on a great game of football .

With two games to go the Leicester City Ladies Lions stay top of the league and will win the title if they can gain two more victories.

Team:Sadie, Harriet, Anna, Shakeela, Sophie, Toyah, Chloe, “Mini”, “Mops”, Beth, “CC”, Jamie and “Minty”.
