2nd Team League - East Midlands 1
ENER-G MRHA : 2nd Team League Corby 3-1 Leicester University
Students undergo a lesson at weekend.
Corby were away to Leicester for their return leg. Corby piled pressure onto Leicester from the off & it was within 10 minutes before Striker Pair Simon Davey & Owen Dunn had Leicester running everywhere. Capt Scott Mulligan put up a lovely Aerial which was picked up by Colin Medley then pushed into the path of Davey who calmly slotted the ball past the Leicester keeper who had been getting well worked. Simon Davey secured a second goal shortly before half time taking Corby into a comfortable position.
Leicester came out stronger in the second half & after 15 minutes the Leicester Striker carved his way past the four defenders before Corby Keeper blocked the shot but only took the pace off the ball & brought Leicester back into the game.
Owen Dunn was to secure the win with a lovely taken shot bring another 3 points for Corby which is in a good position to challenge for the premiership.
Corby have two home game next weekend due to poor weather. Derby Asterdale on Saturday & Manfield on Sunday.
