Our results from the weekend…
Women’s 2 won 3-2 away to Leicester Ladies 5s in their Leicestershire Women’s League Plate semifinal match
Goals: Ella Partridge, Lucy James & Marissa Bole
Player of the Match was Ady Kendall
“The Women’s 2s dived straight into their Leicestershire Women’s League Plate semifinal game against Leicester Ladies 5s—scoring within the first five minutes from an assist by Ella Partridge on the left, into the hands of Lucy James who shot it through the legs of the Leicester keeper. Leicester tried to equal the scoreline but the Harborough defence were on fine form, and kept the opposition at bay.
Soon into the second half, the next Harborough goal came from a thwarted Leicester penalty corner attempt; the 2s defence intercepted the Leicester ball to send it swiftly up the pitch to the forwards, where Ella Partridge delivered it directly into the goal from the top of the D.
Leicester picked up their tempo and attacked the Harborough goal, scoring their two goals via a series of penalty corners. With ten minutes left, the 2s weren’t giving up on the game, the team kept possession with renewed vigour to score the winner; passing between the midfield, to Milly Docherty, onto Ella to whip it across the D where Marissa Bole was waiting to jab it over the line.
A great performance, well done all! Player of the Match was Ady Kendall for her work in defence.
The team face Loughborough Town 2s in the Plate final in Market Bosworth next Saturday!”
