Leicester City Ladies battled through a tough quarter final against a much improved Barwell & Burbage side. From the off Barwell & Burbage battled and stopped Leicester’s usual attacking flair. However one player they couldn’t stop was Leicester City Ladies captain Lauren who settled her sides early nerves with two well taken goals in the 8th and 13th minutes and battled away to get Leicester City Ladies going. This settled Leicester City Ladies down and they started to play much better. Jade carried on her excellent goalscoring form and scored two quick goals in the 18th and 19th minutes to put Leicester firmly in the driving seat. Shania, playing in an unfamiliar centre midfield role for her, scored a superb individual goal in the 22nd minute and went on to have a solid game.

The second half started much the same as the first with Barwell & Burbage battling away. Jade completed her hat trick in the 36th minute but Barwell & Burbage still kept plugging away and it took 2 brave saves from Viv to keep the clean sheet. The goal of the game came in the 44th minute when Molly hit an unstoppable twenty yard shot which flew into the roof of the net. Solid defending by the defence throughout and another good save from Viv in the last ten minutes enabled another clean sheet to be kept for Leicester City Ladies.
