Hard week for women’s football

Swansea women’s footballers experienced a tough week as both the 1sts and 2nds lost.

Swansea firsts and Glamorgan took to the field on the back of successive wins in the league.

Talitha Drennan was denied early on by the offside flag, before Glamorgan also came close with Swansea defender Colette Bailey denying Alannah
McLaughlin.

After half time Glamorgan took the lead, Lucy Edwards reacted first to a parried shot.

Swansea battled back and equalised through Lauren Walker whose powerful strike beat the keeper.

Glamorgan’s striker Linsey Mochan was an ever-present problem for the home side and scored the winner five minutes from time.

Swansea seconds faced the prospect of being bottom of the table come the final whistle as they faced Gloucestershire away.

Swansea were on the back foot from the start, conceding five in the first half.

The away side failed to create many clear cut chances, with captain Bethan Rudge often left isolated up front.

Swansea had one great chance in the opening half, but were denied by a tight offside decision by the assistant referee.

Midway through the second half, Swansea’s keeper Tasha Wilcox collided with the home side’s striker, forcing each side into a change.

Swansea showed spells of good passing but failed to profit from possession, and despite a strong display by left back Amy Rowe, Swansea’s defence
could not cope.
