A thoroughly professional afternoon from Loughborough Foxes saw them put six past visitors Sporting Khalsa Women before lifting the Women’s Premier League Midlands Division One title.
Khalsa nearly spoiled the party early doors as Number 14 latched onto hesitation at the back but her lofted effort dropped the wrong side of the bar, as the ball clipped it on its way over. The effort drove the hosts on, and scored the opener moments later. Victoria Brackenbury turning home an effort to open the deadlock and send the Foxes on their way. Eva Rogers soon made it two sliding home after good work down the wing by Lindsey Tugby.
Foxes were in the party mood and notched a further two goals before the interval. Tiana Hicks fired one across the goalkeeper and Chloe Young turned one in off the post with her left foot. Foxes lead by four at the break.
Foxes added a further two goals after the break with Charlotte Cooper ensuring she wouldn’t be caught, for this week at least, by Chloe Young as she rounded the keeper and slotted home following an excellent through pass from Young. Laura Steele sealed the victory after scoring what has become a trademark corner - yes, that’s right. Directly from the corner kick.
Foxes extend their unbeaten run to an incredible twenty one games and have one fixture left to ensure they become the invincibles of the 2017/18 season. Not only have the Foxes only dropped two points all season, but they have only conceded seven goals in twenty one fixtures, keeping an rather impressive fourteen clean sheets in the process. Also, the Foxes won all their fixtures at the fortress that is the University Stadium - unbelievable Jeff!
One game to complete what has been a magnificent season for Loughborough. Come & support the women in their final fixture away at Radcliffe Olympic Ladies.
