Birmingham Uni 2 v Leicester Toto 07/11/2015

Our second away game of the season saw us travel to Bournville College to play the University of Birmingham.

A tightly fought first half saw the lead change hands several times before an equaliser was scored before the next exchange but Zoe got her first goal of the season right at the end of the half to give Leicester a two-goal lead at 11-9.

Changes at half-time saw Rob Parnham replace Tom O’Callaghan and Emma Spargo swap with Melisa Kupaza after Tempest loanee Abby Mycroft had taken the place of the injured Gemma Wallis before the break.

The second half was decidedly more one-sided than the first as Matt Freeman got six goals for the second time this season, beaten to the games top scorer title by Matt Cox and his 7, resulting in a final score of 21-10.

A great performance all round and some excellent korfball gives Toto a great footing to go into next week’s game against Magic.
