With Harborough Town starting well defensively and with 10 minutes gone Leicester City Ladies were patent and they were rewarded with their first goal courtsey of Madison score now 1-2. Leicester City Ladies were now on the hurt for the equalizer and it came within 2 minutes of the restart and it was a very well worked second goal for Leicester’s Madison which involved some good fast football from Leicester’s midfielders Paige, Sophie and Madeleine. Harborough Town were still pressing with good affect having several chances on goal which tested both Leicester City Ladies defenders Katie and Alanya as well as goal keeper Tillie. Fifteen minutes through the first half Leicester City Ladies conceded a corner, which Harborough took full advance of driving the ball low and hard into the near post which sent some confusion through the Leicester defence and a goal mouth scramble ended in the ball being carried over the line despite the best efforts of keeper Tillie, score now 2-3. Leicester City Ladies now went on the offensive throwing everything at Harborough in the last 5 minutes by scoring 3 goals in quick concession all courtesy of Madisont who at half time had 5 goals and would be looking for another to secure a double hat-trick.
