Lions draw Thriller


In a thrilling game Leicester City Ladies Lions secured a point against a very slick Asfordby Amateurs team in the under 13s league.
Asfordby Amateurs started the brighter but found themselves a goal down after ten minutes when a one-two between “CC” and Jamie culminated with a fine angled shot into the corner.
Both teams had chances after that and Asfordby Amateurs could have done better with an indirect free kick in the box which was eventually saved by Sadie.
Minty and “CC” combined well for Leicester City Ladies but both chances were saved by a good Asfordby Amateurs goalie.
The second half started Asfordby Amateurs on top and deservedly they went into a 2-1 lead thanks to goals from Caitlin and Rhiann.
Going behind galvanised the Leicester City Ladies into action and the game flowed from end to end with good runs from “Mops”, “Minty” and Jamie and some sterling work at the back from Shakeela, Sophie, “Mini”, Toyah , Chloe, Anna and Harriet.
Leicester City Ladies levelled the match when a good run from “Minty” strong turn and excellent pass to “CC” saw her left foot volley fly into the top corner.
The matched ended in a draw on a day when neither side deserved to lose!
