The 2nd half was also a very competitive half. The Diamonds began to show a bit more quality and tested the Harborough keeper on numerous occasions but she kept Town in the game with some excellent saves. However ten minutes into the second half Olivia C, who was having her best game of the season, put them in the lead with a close range shot and the Diamonds were on their way. Leicester City Ladies Diamonds kept on creating chances and it was no surprise when Olivia C made it 2-0 with her 2nd of the game. D’shayney was having one of those days where every time she looked like scoring the keeper would make a good save or defender a last gasp challenge so the game was not won. However Laura managed to finally put the game to bed with a deflected shot that gave Diamonds a deserved 3-0 win.
