Athena suffered defeat in its second friendly against University of Leicester women's team.
The Uni team were looking for practice ahead of their forthcoming Student Cup appearance and they certainly fielded a very strong side. They ran out comfortable winners against a very inexperienced Athena team that featured 2 juniors and a make-shift middle player.
It was not a great result, but it gave a chance to some more players to get on court and it gave the coach plenty to think about. The first pass was quite wayward and, as to be expected with such an inexperienced side, the attack was not as effective as needed against a well-drilled University side.
