Diamonds Win In Tough Encounter


Leicester City Ladies Diamonds U15’s maintained their 100% record in a 2-1 win away to Loughborough Foxes in a tough encounter. Leicester City Ladies dominated the 1st half and were only leading 1-0 through a Jenna strike half way through the half, playing their best half of football this season. They dominated the play and had numerous chances but found the Loughborough keeper in inspired form and a 1-0 score line did not reflect the outstanding half of football the Diamonds had produced.

However the 2nd half was a completely different affair. Loughborough Foxes, realising they were still in the game matched Leicester City Ladies all the way and the game became a battle. Both sides were playing well and it was a good game to watch. Loughborough equalised with five minutes to go and it looked if the game was heading for a draw. However the Leicester girls showed their spirit and got a winner in the last minute with a lob over the keeper from Olivia C.
Overall it was a deserved win on the balance of play through the whole game but credit must also go to Loughborough Foxes who were superb in the 2nd half.
