The Peterborough United Ladies kept up their fine form with a 5-2 win over Heather at the weekend.
On a dry but cold November afternoon, Peterborough United Ladies overwhelmed their Leicestershire opponents, Heather, with a comfortable 5-2 win. Posh started well and it was no surprise when Kier Perkins slotted home from close range in the 13th minute to make it 1-0. Amy Gore doubled the score to make it 2-0 in the 26th minute when she rifled in a vicious right footed shot which flew past the Heather goalkeeper.
Heather pulled a goal back on the stroke of half time to make it 2-1. The half time talk consisted of urging the Ladies to press hard and to exploit the space that the opposition were giving.
On cue, Emily Smith in the 46th minute glided past two defenders and smashed the ball past the Heather goalkeeper to make it 3-1. Not to be out done Jeorgia Carr in the 49th minute slipped past her marker and struck the ball past the despairing dive of the goalkeeper to make it 4-1.
Heather managed to score again but another goal in the 68th minute by Kier Perkins ended the contest between the two teams. This was a comfortable win for Peterborough United Ladies. Credit to Heather who continued to battle to the final whistle.
