Match Reports

Albion beaten by Leicester

27 November 2017

ALBION suffered a 4-1 defeat at home to Leicester City Women in the FA Women’s Premier League Northern Division on Sunday.

New signing Leah Seivwright scored on her debut after coming on as a half-time substitute, but it wasn't enough to help produce a Baggies fight back.

Despite a bright start from Albion, it was Leicester who took the lead in the 16th minute when Olivia Mitcham was on hand to tap home a drilled right wing cross from Sophie Domingo.

Just two minutes later the Baggies fell further behind when Axten raced onto a through ball from Domingo to fire past Kinnerley into the far corner.

And the disappointment continued for Albion when Leicester were awarded a penalty right on the stroke of half-time which Axten converted for her second of the game.

Albion found a way back into the game in the 53rd minute when Lauren Price was tripped inside the box. Leah Seivwright stepped up to calmly tuck away the spot-kick.

Yet it was the visitors who had the final say with a quarter of an hour to go when Shauna Cossens looping header beat Kinnerley.

ALBION: Kinnerley, Finn, Hull (c), Burton, H.Price, Finch, Reynolds (Moore 82), Bacciochi (Seivwright 46), James (Stamps 66), L.Price, Dale.

Subs: Kikomeko, McElroy.

Albion visit Huddersfield Town Ladies in the SSE FA Women's Cup 2nd Round on Sunday, December 3 (ko 1pm).
