Leicester City Women FC 7 a side tournament


The Under 15’s entered this 7 a side tournament and played in the U16’s age group.
The girls played in a group with teams from Syston Town ( x2 ) and Barwell & Burbage.
The girls played Syston 1 in the first game and won a hard fought game 1 nil.
The second group game was against Syston 2, the girls found themselves 2 nil down early in the game. Despite a much better second half the scoreline remained 2 nil to Syston.
So to the final group game against Barwell & Burbage who had beaten both Syston teams in their first 2 games.
The girls looked to attack from the off and the girls were 2 nil up by half time. The girls saw out the second half and the scoreline remained 2 nil.
With 3 teams finishing level on points , the girls missed out on topping the group by 1 goal.
So in the semi final the girls played Barwell & Burbage again.
In a tight first half Megan nipped in to finish well after hesitancy in the Barwell defence. So the girls took a 1 nil lead into half time.
After an early goal at the start of the second half the girls produced some fantastic football scoring 3 more goals. So goals from Megan,Rebecca 3 and Indiana saw the girls through to the final after a 5 nil win, where they would play Syston 2.
In the final the girls took an early lead through another good finish from Megan.By half time Syston had sored 2 goals to go in 2 – 1 up.The girls got to grips with the game in the second half and started to play some good football again creating numerous good chances but for the performance of the Syston goalkeeper the girls may have turned the game around. But they were unable to add to the scoreline so the game finished 2 – 1 to Syston.
A great effort from all the girls playing against teams who were U16’s last season.
