Unfortunate loss for the ladies this week.
The first half was pretty much in our favour, with the majority of possession being ours. Despite the good fight the girls put up we were unable to hold Kington off from scoring their first goal.
This goal gave the girls determination to get a goal back. Not long before the half time whistle Gowerton were able to secure them an equalising goal. The goal came from the joint effort of Ria Cannon and Jessica Williams, who fought hard to get the ball over the line.
The second half was very similar to the first half, with the girls holding most of the possession. However Kington managed to secure them a short corner, which resulted in them scoring their second and final goal. At this point the game was stopped due to injury time. Rhiannon Simms took a stick to the knee after defending a strike from a Kington attacker which caused just below her knee to split open. With Rhiannon being sent to hospital to get stitches Gowerton were now down to 10 players. Despite this the girls were able to hold Kington off from scoring another goal.
My captain’s player this week was again very hard to pick as all the girls put in a good effort, despite the weather being horrendous and picking up the standard when the team dropped to 10. However I would like to give my Captains player to Victoria Vaughan as she held midfield well. She also worked well with Megan James and defended well when needed. Well done Vic.
Final score Kington 2 – 1 Gowerton
