It was raining goals at The Mick George Academy as Peterborough United Ladies beat Leicester City 17-1 in an East Midlands Women’s League match yesterday (April 7).

In one of their best footballing displays of the season the local ladies played some scintillating one touch football to completely outclass their opposition.

Hannah Pendred, who was at the heart of a great midfield display which also featured Stacey McConville, Amy Challis and Jess Driscoll, scored a double hat-trick to became the first Posh Ladies player in recent seasons to achieve such a feat.

Donna McGuigan also had her shooting boots on and celebrated her birthday in style with five goals.

There was also another outstanding performance from Jess Driscoll, who scored a fine hat-trick.

Two further goals from Laura Dodwell and a final goal from captain Keir Perkins rounded off a perfect afternoon for Posh.
