Fosse Start New Year with a Victory


Leicester Fosse Ladies started the new year how they mean to go on. We were met with a cold and windy day with boggy conditions but with a high spirit and confident attitude the Ladies were set for the first game of the new year. The first half saw some great passing from left to right and good link up play with Carmelina and Lucy at the top of the pitch, Lucy’s left footed shot into the bottom corner took the Fosse Ladies up by 1 goal after 20 minutes. Syston Ladies showed pace on the wings but a confident defence line from the Fosse Ladies kept Syston at bay. Despite the conditions the Fosse kept focussed and took their 1 goal lead into the 2nd half.
Syston put the pressure on straight from the off in the 2nd half but the Fosse Ladies showed their character and found the space to play the ball. Thia and Nic took control of the centre of the field and showed their skill, feeding the ball cleverly over the top of the Syston defence for Carmelina to run onto – 2-0. Some good honest play by Megan Mc and Lisa on the wings helped the Fosse to a 3-0 lead by pushing the ball forward to Carmelina yet again. Syston still pushed and some scrappy play in the Fosse box allowed a sloppy goal for Syston – 3-1. However yet again some brilliant play and pace by Carmelina brought the game to a close with another 2 goals in the final 15 minutes of the game to give Fosse the first win of the new year – 5-1. Well done to all the girls.
