Heavy Defeat

After a week without a game and having to play this game without regular goalkeeper Megan Leicester City Ladies (2010) knew it was going to be a tough fixture.
Leicester City Ladies (2010) did not help themselves in the first half of this game the basics seemed to go out of the window with Asfordby Amateurs attacking straight through the middle of the pitch and scoring at will.
By half time Asfordby Amateurs had scored 6 goals without reply with the Leicester City Ladies team giving Shelby the stand in keeper very little protection.
After the half time break with the game out of reach for Leicester City Ladies started to defend as a team and went forward to try and get something out of this match.
As Leicester City Ladies went forward Asfordby Amateurs got behind the defence on a couple of occasions where Emily produced 2 great saves to deny her side conceding any further goals.
As the game was coming towards its end Natasha attacked down the left for Leicester City Ladies passing to Shelby in the Asfordby Amateurs penalty area, who she calmly slotted the ball into the bottom corner of the net to make the final score Asfordby Amateurs 6 Leicester City Ladies (2010) 1
Leicester City Ladies manager Nathan Worrall commented after the game “A game of two halves. Much better in the second half, the girls need to start games how they finished this one to give themselves a chance. A lot to learn from a lacklustre first half.”

Player of the match Natasha worked hard up and down the left hand side throughout this game, with a special mention to stand in keepers Shelby and Emily neither of whom wanted to play in goal but for their efforts the scoreline could have been worse.
