Brilliant Result


After three weeks witout a game due to the bad weather Leicester Cit Ladies faced another tough game against a strong Bedworth team.
The game started very evenly with both teams struggling to get any passing moves going. The game was very competitive in all areas of the pitch, with both teams showing why they are competing for the league title. Both teams had a few half chances, the best of Leicester’s came when Foxy hit the woodwork after a great pass from Eleni. Leicester’s defence were playing really well and limited Bedworth’s chances on goal. However Bedworth did break the deadlock just before half time when a great corner was headed home from close range.

This goal spurred Leicester City Ladies on and within five minutes they were in front when Jade once again showed her brilliance in front of goal to finish calmly after another good pass from Foxy. Leicester City Ladies were really on top now and Lauren sealed the three points late on with a confident finish after a third assist for Foxy. There was still time for some drama when Bedworth were awarded a penalty in injury time, the Bedworth player struck the penalty well but Leicester goalkeeper Viv made a strong save tp preserve Leicester’s two goal lead.
