Disappointing Defeat


Leicester City Ladies (2010) v Bedworth Eagles Girls

In what proved to be a very close game Leicester City Ladies were slow to get going but there were few chances for both teams. Leicester City Ladies came close to opening the scoring when Emily won the ball in midfeild and played the ball to Jenna on the right of the penalty area, Jennas shot was parried by the keeper but Megan couldn’t force the loose ball goalwards.
Leicester City Ladies were made to pay for this as Bedworth won a throw in deep in the Leicester half, from which Bedworth crossed into the box which went in at the near post.

The second half carried on, similar to the first as both teams were cancelling each other out in a midfield battle. When the strikers got near goal both defences stood firm. Leicester City Ladies were made to pay again as they switched off after a Bedworth throw in, the ball was half cleared, where the Bedworth player sent a high ball into the Leicester area, after a high bounce the ball ended up in the Leicester net. With time running out Leicester City Ladies pushed forward to try and get something from the game. Olivia broke from midfield battling with the Bedworth defender, the referee awarded Leicester a free kick on the left hand side just outside of the Bedworth penalty area. Chloe stepped up and took the free kick sending it over the wall and into the roof of the net. With only a few minutes left time ran out as Leicester went in search of an equaliser.

Despite the scoreline another good performance from the girls. Who on another day may have won this game by the odd goal.
