Jess Driscoll scores twice as the Posh Ladies beat nearest rivals in league.
Peterborough United Ladies strengthened their grip on the League title with a convincing 3-2 win against Oadby and Wigston Ladies. Billed as a clash against the top two in Division 1 South it was Peterborough United Ladies who came out eventual winners.
Both teams started well with attack being met by counter attack but it was the Posh Ladies who got the early breakthrough in the 25th minute when Keir Perkins played a through ball to Jess Driscoll who chipped the ball over the keeper from close range to make it 1-0. Oadby were not deterred and levelled the score to make it 1-1 just before half time.
The second half began a little like the first with Oadby looking particularly threatening but all that changed in the 60th minute when Keir Perkins crossed the ball squarely into the box for Jeorgia Carr to calmly back heel it into the net to make it 2-1. The momentum was clearly with the Ladies and again it was Keir Perkins in the 75th minute who laid on a forward pass for Jess Driscoll to shoot past the diving goalkeeper to make it 3-1.
Oadby pulled another goal back but they had left it too late to stage a remarkable comeback. All credit to Peterborough United Ladies. They stuck to their tasks well. They played with passion and a determination to not give in.
