Diamonds Win In Entertaining Game


Leicester City Ladies Diamonds won an entertaining game 7-1 against their sister side. The Diamonds were on the front foot from the start and enjoyed lots of possession. However they found Lucy, the opposition goalkeeper, in fine form and she produced save after save, especially from D’shayney, to keep the Diamonds at bay. The Diamonds opened the scoring in the 15th minute through a superb 20 yard shot from Tiarna that gave the keeper no chance. After 20 minutes Olivia D turned poacher as she turned a goal ward bound shot into the net to make the score 2-0. The Diamonds rounded off the half with a neat lob finish by Lauren to make it 3-0 before the break.

The Diamonds went 5-1 up on 70 minutes with a superb free kick from 25 yards from Lauren that flew into the net. D’shayney added 2 further goals in the last 10 minutes to leave the score 7-1.
