Diamonds Win Close Encounter


Leicester City Ladies Diamonds beat their fellow sister team Leicester City Ladies 1-0 in a closely fought contest. The first half was very competitive with both teams huffing and puffing but with not a lot of chances being created. The one good chance fell to the Diamonds when Lauren went on a surging run, rounding the keeper and it looked a certain goal but was superbly cleared off the line by a defender. Safe handling by the Leicester Ladies keeper kept any Diamonds attacks at bay.
