Back to Back Away Wins
Leicester City Ladies added a second away win in a week with a 2-0 win at lowly Curzon Ashton.
City dominated possession throughout and it told on 20 minutes as Hillier finished a fine solo goal.
Second half was much of the same, however Leicester City Ladies needed Goalkeeper Cat to save a penalty to keep the lead before Whalley wrapped up the points late on.
A frustrating afternoon for the away side but a solid win none the less. Leicester City Ladies now look forward to playing unbeaten Loughborough Foxes on Thursday night at the Nike Stadium.

Leicester City Ladies Diamonds U15’s beat Bedworth Eagles 5-2 with a comfortable win. Both teams played with passion but Leicester City Ladies always had the edge and never really had to get out of 3rd gear. Leicester City Ladies opened the scoring through Olivia who drilled in a low shot into the corner. Bedworth equalised with a speculative shot that bounced over the keeper on the hard pitch. This was a bit harsh on Leicester City Ladies who had dominated the play up to then. This did not put off Leicester City Ladies though and with the midfield dominant they scored three more times before half time with an own goal from a Lucy corner, a good individual goal from D’shayney, a shot from Jenna who scored her 5th goal of the season already.

Leicester City Ladies started off the 2nd half where they had left off and dominated play with some good passing. To their credit Bedworth never gave up and still made it a competitive game. Leicester City Ladies made it 5-1 with a good individual goal from Lauren which she finished off nicely. This enabled Leicester City Ladies to ring the changes and rest some players and try players in different positions. Bedworth kept battling and were rewarded with a 2nd goal just before the end. This was a very good win at a notoriously tough place to go and the team should be proud of their superb team performance.
