League Season Ends in Style


Leicester City Ladies faced Barwell United in their final league game of the season and were looking to preserve their unbeaten record.
Leicester City Ladies couldn’t have wished for a better start to the game when striker Laura scored twice within the first seven minutes. Leicester City Ladies were playing some nice football and were soon 3-0 up when Lauren scored after ten minutes. Leicester City Ladies were firmly in control of the game and Barwell United were struggling to get out of their own half. Barwell United’s goalkeeper was on good form and made some really good saves to prevent them going further behind. After fiveteen minutes Jade scored Leicester City Ladies fourth of the game which was soon followed by a goal for Barwell United when their lively striker finished brilliantly into the far corner to make it 4-1. Just before half time Olivia deservedly got herself on the score sheet with a confident finish after a good Leicester City Ladies move.
Leicester City Ladies were slow to get started in the second half and Barwell United enjoyed a spell of possession and also created some chances on goal. Leicester City Ladies did finally get into their stride and on thirty minutes Jade increased their lead once more. This gave Leicester City Ladies some confidence and they continued to push forward and create numerous chances. Leicester City Ladies seventh goal came from Olivia who scored her 2nd goal of the game and soon after Molly made it 8-1 with a left foot finish at the far post. The last fiveteen minutes saw Leicester City Ladies goalkeeper Viv made a cameo appearance up front. In any other game she would have scored but Viv found the Barwell United goalkeeper in superb form and just couldn’t find a way past her! With 5 minutes to go Foxy scored Leicester City Ladies nonth and final goal after a mix up between defender and goalkeeper.
What a fantastic acheivement to finish the league season unbeaten, only dropping 2 points over 18 games, scoring 126 goals and only conceding 12….Well Done Girls!
