Blues Cup Dream Continues

Blues Cup Dream Continues

Yesterday's game saw us face Leicester City Ladies FC.

We welcomed Toton United girls to Grange Park to walk out with the first team and be ball girls for the game.

The start of the game saw both teams have chances and it was very end to end but nothing really troubling either keeper.

The deadlock was broken on 34 minutes when Cara Newton was brought down in the box, after taking the ball around two players. Amy Pashley the captain for today calmly slotted the ball past the keeper to make it 1-0.

Leicester City had a couple of chances to draw level with a free kick and a cross but Kellogg was there to collect.

Half time arrived and Long Eaton went in being the stronger side.

Long Eaton doubled their lead on 52 minutes through Viki Adams with a long range shot from 25 yards which dipped under the keeper.

Long Eaton carried on creating chances and Leicester City were again on the back foot. After an influx of crosses and corners Long Eaton found the back of the net again, Jade Arber joining both Pashley and Adams on the score sheet with a lovely taken half volley.

Leicester City then increased the pressure and a free kick was awarded 25 yards out. The ball was played into the box and Long Eaton were unable to deal with the cross resulting in Kellogg having to pull off a close range double save which eventually was slotted in.

Leicester City then had their best period of the game, hitting the bar and having a shot cleared off the line by Anya Cresswell. Leicester’s number 9 also having a number of shots on target, all of which were claimed by Kellogg.

Overall Long Eaton looked comfortable and were worthy winners on the day. They find out who they will play in the next round of the FA Cup tomorrow.
