League Cup Exit

Leicester City Ladies hosted Bedworth Eagles looking to progress and retain the League cup that they won last season.

Leicester City Ladies were the better team for the first 20 mins and had numerous one on one chances which they failed to convert. On sixteen minutes Bedworth Eagles were awarded a controversial penalty. The penalty was well taken and gave Leicester City Ladies goalkeeper Viv no chance.

The second half saw Leicester City Ladies come closest again with both Jade and Molly unlucky not to score from free kicks. With Bedworth Eagles sitting deep and trying to defend their lead Leicester City Ladies had a change of formation to try to have an impact on the game. Unfortunately Bedworth Eagles were strong and well organised and they held on for the win.
