Diamonds Bounce Back In The Cup


Leicester City Ladies Diamonds U15’s bounced back from their 1st defeat of the season last week with a comfortable 2-0 win in the League Cup away to Harborough Town. Harborough Town once again proved to be tough opponents but the Diamonds were in determined mood after last week and their passion and commitment returned. Diamonds opened the scoring with a lob from Molly and doubled their lead with a goal from Lauren to take a 2-0 lead in the first 15 minutes and set them on their way. With the Harborough keeper in inspired form the Diamonds who were dominant throughout the 1st half were kept at bay from opening up a 5 or 6 goal lead at half time and the 2-0 margin didn’t do them justice.

The 2nd half was a bit more of an even contest and Harborough were more of a threat. However it was the Diamonds who once again had the better chances and but for the excellent performance of the Harborough keeper the score would have been a lot more convincing. Overall a very good display from the Diamonds and a quarter final against Oadby Owls awaits.
