Loughborough Foxes 2 Leicester City Ladies 3


This game was always going to be a hard fought game by two very good footballing sides.
Leicester City Ladies started the strongest creating some half chances and in the fifteenth minute went into a 1-0 lead with a headed goal from a corner by Bethany.
Leicester City Ladies kept on pressing hitting the post before Megan scored with a great volley.
Leicester City Ladies continued to press and went further in front with a spectacular goal from Dexter.
With Leicester City Ladies having their tails up they went in search of more goals but with two great saves and a penalty save by the Loughborough Foxes keeper kept the score down to 0-3 at half time. The second half continued and for the first twenty minutes was very even without any clear cut chance from either side.
Loughborough Foxes then scored two goals within three minutes, half way through the second half to reduce the deficit to 2-3.
Loughborough Foxes then went in search of the equaliser and put Leicester City Ladies under severe pressure but Leicester held out to win the game 3-2.
This game was a great advert for girls football played at a very high tempo and great commitment between two technically strong sides.
Manger Roger Holt commented after the game “I would like to congratulate my girls in which was a fantastic performance. Well done girls.”
