A Game of Two Halves


Leicester City Ladies under 11s started the game brilliantly and played some of their best football so far this season which saw them go in at half time with a healthy three goal lead thanks to two goals from Lauren and one from Foxy.
Leicester City Ladies knew the game wasn’t over and that Oadby and Wigston would come back strongly and that they did!!
Leicester City Ladies lost concentration in the second half and before long Oadby and Wigston had pulled the game back to 3-2. From then on it was end to end stuff. Leicester City Ladies grabbed the next goal with a great strike from Foxy to make it 4-2 and could have increased their lead further with numerous other chances. But Oadby and Wigston were not going to give this game up and scored their 3rd goal of the day with just 5 minutes remaining. Oadby and Wigston eventually completed a fantastic comeback with an equaliser in the last few minutes of the game. Final Score 4-4!!
Leicester City Ladies were very diassapointed not to have won the game but i’m sure the girls will learn from their mistakes and move forward in their next game.
This was a great game and a great advert for the league and for girls football. Credit must go to both teams, Well done girls!

Player of the Match – Ella – 2 great goals and endless running throughout the game.
