First League Defeat in Two Seasons


Leicester City Ladies Under 13s slipped to their first league defeat in 2 seasons against a strong 2010 side. The conditions were awful for both teams with a very strong wind swirling around for the duration of the game. 2010 kicked with the wind in the first half and started much the brighter with Leicester City Ladies finding themselves off the pace. 2010 took the lead from a long range effort which deceived Leicester goalkeeper Viv and doubled their lead soon after, when a mix up between goalkeeper and defence allowed the 2010 striker to nip in and finish well.

Leicester City Ladies started the second half better but still failed to capitalise fully on the wind being in their favour. Jade did deservedly pull a goal back with 15 minutes to go but Leicester City Ladies still had a lot of work to do. With Leicester City Ladies pushing forward, 2010 were very dangerous on the break and could have easily increased their lead. Leicester City Ladies did have their chances to equalise towards the end but some last minute blocks and goal line clearances from 2010 prevented this.

A below par performance from Leicester City Ladies who never really got going. Credit to 2010 who coped with the windy conditions far better and defended their lead solidly once in front.
