Cup success for hockey team

Swansea University needed a golden goal against Bath to progress to the semi-finals of the Bucs cup.

Captain Becky Gosney was ecstatic with the win.

“We’re currently second in the league, one point behind Bath and we have ambitions of winning the league,” she said.

“This win today has really boosted us and has given us the confidence to make a real push for the league, as well as the cup.”

The first half of the match allowed the poor weather conditions to dictate the slow pace of the game and neither side was troubled defensively.

The second half was slow-paced, lacking attacking flair from both sides.

With the game at 0-0, it went to extra time.

The first half of the extended period belonged to Bath whose possession and attacking flair were troubling the Swansea defence without any penetration.

But Swansea finally broke the deadlock two minutes before the end of extra time after a succession of short corners.

Bath goalkeeper Izzy Tiemann made two great saves to deny Swansea.

But Chloë Guy fired the ball into the bottom right corner after another short corner sparking jubilant celebrations from the Swansea side.
