Lions Win Top of Table Clash


In an exciting top of the table clash Leicester City Ladies Lions finally overcame Asfordby Amateurs 7-1 with possibly their best performance of the season.
The first half saw Leicester City Ladies take the lead after good work down the left by chloe whose pass found “Mops” who prodded the ball home. The second came from a Jamie corner “CC” lashing home.
Asfordby Amateurs then had their best spell of the match and deservedly scored after a good period of pressure including some fine saves by Lions goalkeeper Harriet but a quick freekick found the corner of the net to reduce arrears for Asfordby Amateurs.
It was now end to end stuff with both defences, especially the Asfordby Amateurs goalie and Lions defence of Shakeela, Sophie, Rumbi and “Minty” being hard pressed but that pressure was relieved on the stroke of halftime with a Minty from the edge of the box after a “Mini” corner.
The second half saw Leicester City Ladies Lions come out all guns blazing and after some nice interplay with Jamie, Olivia and Georgia the ball came to ”CC” who planted the ball in the corner of the net despite a great effort to keep it out by the opposition goalie.
The Lions quickly made it 5-1 as ”CC” r finished well after quick thinking by the Lions goalie Amelia throwing to Beth and Jamie. The best move of the day saw Georgia release ”CC” to finish well in the process scoring her 4th goal.
The game was finally wrapped up when Georgia deservedly scored heading home a delicate ”Mini” corner at the near post leaving the final score 7-1 to Leicester City Ladies Lions.
