16th League Win


After a good result the day before against LCLFC 2010 Leicester City Ladies faced Rugby Town on a beautiful sunny morning and were looking to end the weekend six points better off.
Leicester City Ladies could not have wished for a better start with striker Laura scoring after only two minutes and Jade quickly making it 2-0 with a penalty in the third minute. Leicester City Ladies were playing some great football and really putting Rugby Town under pressure. On nine minutes Laura extended Leicester City Ladies lead further with her second goal of the game. Then Jade scored her second on twelve minutes to put Leicester City Ladies firmly in control. Leicester City Ladies could have had more goals with captain Lauren unlucky on two occasions with headers that hit the crossbar!
As the half wore on Rugby Town started to compete more and had some half chances but Leicester City Ladies defended well.
Half time: Rugby 0 LCLFC 4
Leicester City Ladies made some changes at half time which had immediate effect as make shift striker Shania scored her 1st goal of the season with a bullet header at the far post! Leicester City Ladies continued to dominate possession and put some good passing moves together only to be denied by some good defending from Rugby Town. Rugby Town themselves also upped their game and Leicester City Ladies goalkeeper Viv was on hand to make some good saves. Leicester City Ladies did score their sixth and final goal five minutes from time when Laura completed her hatrick with a great left foot finish.
Final score: Rugby Town 0 LCLFC 6
