Victory Under the Lights


Under the lights at Linwood, which always creates a good atmosphere, Leicester City Ladies hit their second win in four days this time securing league points against high flyers Copeswood who will not be far away from the title this year.
Copeswood started brighter and most of the first half their pace and quick play was causing Leicester City Ladies problems. They took the lead on 35 minutes with a fine finish and Gage made a superb clearance off the line chasing back to keep the score tight.
Second half was more even with Leicester City Ladies taking a bigger part in the play. Copeswood were always quick on the break keeper Cat and the back four for City were superb. Leicester City Ladies were awarded their second penalty in two successive league games , this time Gemma Ball hit the net to level the scores.
It almost had the feel of a cup tie with a lot of end to end action. Fortunately the one chance was enough and that fell to Laura Toon who finished from close rang to steal the points.
Overall a tight game with a lot of quality, the points were fantastic to be achieved against a very good side in Copeswood.
