With a pre-Christmas fixture being rearranged for the start of March, this was the second team’s first encounter with Voodoo this season. Well matched in all areas, and with good starts to the season for both teams, this fixture and the follow up matches in March, should determine who finishes 3rd and 4th in the league.
Voodoo got off to a great start going 3-0 up in the first 10 minutes. Leicester regrouped and fought back and after a time out for a water break in an unusually warm hall, the score was 5-3 to Voodoo. At half-time it was 7-4 and Leicester came out fighting getting two quick goals after the break. Adil had to be substituted off when he went over on his ankle and it was scoring in turns for each team until the end, with Voodoo finishing 10-8 winners.
A terrifically close match that could’ve been lost and won by both sides but it’s first blood to Voodoo in the race for third. Special mention for Becky Kings who, following her step down from Tornadoes, followed up her first goal of the season with an amazing long shot for her second.
Team news and goals:
