Carmarthen 5- 2 Bridgend
Scorers Sarah Boyd, Louise Jones
MOTM Tania Harrison
Due to the Easter holidays, availability was poor but skipper Tania Harrison was able to elucidate a team calling up some younger, inexperienced players to the fold.
Carmarthen started strongly attacking from the whistle, relentless pressure was put on the Bridgend defence seeing 3 goals scored in quick succession. Bridgend regrouped with a change in formation which resulted in some Instrumental attacking play. Carmarthen continued to have a plethora of chances at goal resulting in an additional two goals. From the back, a pass found the midfielders, Georgie and Swawiza, to make its way down the line finding Lou H tussling with the keeper and Sarah reacted to the loose ball to score Bridgends first goal. Half time score 5-1.
After an honest and inspiring talk from Justine, Bridgend were on the front foot getting a short corner in the first 10 minutes. Short corner expert Lou J buried the shot through the keepers legs making it 5-2.
Bridgend continued to attack strongly but no further goals were scored for either team as Bridgend didn’t give up their fight. Special mention to Cerys Richards, on her travelling debut, who made an amazing contribution to the team.
