Second home defeat for First Team


Leicester City Ladies FC v Radcliffe Olympic Ladies FC

Both teams started the game brightly and were battling for every ball. Radcliffe Olympic used the physical aspect of their game to their advantage and used the pace of their forward players to cause Leicester City Ladies  problems.
The first half remained goalless with Radcliffe Olympic looking more likely to score.

Half Time 0-0

The second half also began very evenly with both teams battling for possession. Leicester City Ladies went a goal down halfway through the second half when a very harsh penalty decision was given against them. The Radcliffe Olympic striker coolly placing the penalty in the bottom corner.

Leicester equalised soon after when a free kick from just inside the Radcliffe Olympic half was flicked on by Erica Preston into the path of striker ‘Marshy’ who finished brilliantly past the oncoming goalkeeper.

It didn’t take Radcliffe Olympic long to take the lead again when a shot was fumbled by Leicester City Ladies goalkeeper Lucy Clarke leaving  an easy finish at the far post.
