Lions win County Cup


Leicester City Ladies Lions under 12s won the County Cup 1-0 at Holmes Park in an exciting but very tight game with few chances.
The only goal came midway through the first half after a bout of sustained pressure from the Leicester City Ladies Lions, from the resulting corner Jamie drilled the ball in to the box and under pressure from ‘Minty’ the Westfield Wanderers defence bundled through their own goal.
Westfield Wanderers came back strongly but Sadie in the Leicester City Ladies Lions with her defence of Shakeela, Toyah  and ‘Mops’ stood firm.
Powerful shots from ‘CC’ and ‘Minty’ for Leicester City Ladies Lions were well saved by the Westfield Wanderers goalie.
The second half began with Westfield Wanderers attacking  but finding the Lions defence unyielding with Anna, Chloe and Sophie ward all playing well.
Leicester City Ladies Lions nearly doubled their lead with five minutes to go with the best move of the match with ‘Mini’ releasing ‘CC’ down the left wing who crossed for Jamie who shot powerfully over the bar.
The game see-sawed but the Leicester City Ladies Lions held on for a great victory.
