Diamonds Draw In Disappointing Display


Leicester City Ladies Diamonds produced a disappointing display in a 1-1 draw with Bedworth Eagles Girls although the dreadful windy conditions were a factor. The Diamonds never really got into their stride in the 1st half and although created a few chances they were wayward in their shooting. That said they still took the lead with a smart finish from Jenna but even though they had the wind in their favour they couldn’t add to their goal tally.

The 2nd half produced an improved display from the Diamonds and even though they were playing against the wind they produced some good chances and D’shayney went close with a lovely chip that drifted wide of the goal. However Bedworth more than matched them in the 2nd half and also had their opportunities. Bedworth equalised with ten minutes to go when the Diamonds did not defend a corner very well and Bedworth scored with a well taken shot. The game was up for grabs now and both sides pushed forward but to there was no end product. The Diamonds nearly snatched it at the death after a superb run and cross from Olivia D was narrowly headed wide by Olivia C. All in all a draw was a fair result and the Diamonds look destined to finish 2nd in the League now unless a miracle happens.
