Thirds cast adrift by defeat

Swansea University’s seconds thrashed Swansea’s thirds 6-2 in a thrilling contest at the Sports Hall.

The win means the gap widens between fourth and fifth place in the Bucs western 2C conference league to eight points.

Swansea thirds now face a struggle to remain in the league, but there might be hope for the side after surviving late on last season.

The thirds took the opening two matches, with Jeff Lai defeating Jason Yui 2-1 and Gary Gilkes defeating Simon Johanson 2-0.

Six consecutive wins followed for the seconds.

Stand in captain for the seconds, Craig Sadler, was pleased with the result.

Sadler said: “I’d like to think this was an expected result.”

Seconds pair John Lee and Adam Borrall impressed Sadler in particular, with strong wins.

Thirds captain Mark Edwards was happy despite the defeat.

Edwards said: “They kept the games tight, I couldn’t ask for more.”
