Swansea suffered defeat to Sheffield Hallam, knocking them out of the Bucs trophy in the quarter-finals.

The tight contest went into extra time with the players suffering from fatigue.

“It was a tough game, Sheffield Hallam played really well, and it was very evenly matched,” said captain Lizzie Hearn.

“Everyone gave their all, I’m happy even if it was a loss.”

Hallam had the majority of the possession in the opening 15 minutes.

Swansea gifted the ball to the opposition with sloppy passing and narrow play.

The home side managed to turn it around towards the end of the half, forcing back the visitors into their own 22.

The second half began in a flourish with Swansea scoring their opening try.

Hearn’s run from the centre allowed her teammate Sasha Owen to score down in the left corner.

The resulting conversion kick was missed.

Hallam surged back into the game five minutes after Swansea’s try with one of their own.

The resulted kick was short of the mark.

The game went into extra time with the score at 5-5.

Hallam scored the winner 10 minutes from time.

Hearn was down as a result of a challenge a minute earlier and the Swansea backline was left short as Hallam snuck past to score.
