Under 12s Battle to Victory


Leicester City Ladies under 12s faced Asfordby Amateurs in their fourth league game of the season in what turned out to be a great game.
Leicester City Ladies could not have got off to a better start with captain Lauren lobbing the keeper after only a few minutes to give her side an early lead.
Asfordby Amateurs came back into the game and played some good football, with their forward players looking dangerous and they got a deserved equaliser after a good passing move.
Leicester City Ladies could have taken the lead before half time but failed to put away their chances.
Asfordby Amateurs defended well and looked good going forward.
The second half started much the same the first with both teams very evenly matched.
Leicester City Ladies did eventually re-gain their lead when a great run by Olivia caused confusion in the Asfordby Amateurs defence, allowing Ciara to finish the chance.
Foxy then extended Leicester City Ladies lead to two goals with a good finish.
Just as Leicester City Ladies tried to close the game out, Asfordby Amateurs were awarded a penalty which they scored to make it 3-2.
At this point the game could have gone either way but Leicester City Ladies managed to seal the win with two late goals from Foxy and Jade.
After the match Leicester City Ladies manager Annie Rudkin commented “Not a great performance by Leicester who never really got going. Credit must go to Asfordby who are much improved from last season and really gave us a good game. Well done to both teams!”
