Gowerton v Dinefwr – 27th Oct 18

A relaxed start to the game saw Gowerton pressing into Dinefwr’s defensive half, gaining possession for the majority of the first quarter. However, despite this dominant start, Gowerton were unsuccessful in beating the goal keeper and unable to secure a point until far into the first half. The continued tenacity of the team paid off and Nicola Tucker scored the first goal of the game. This paved the way to two more goals before the half time whistle, secured by birthday girl Jess Williams.

Coming into the second half confident with a three point lead, Gowerton continued their tactics from the first half; pressing defence and gaining possession early on. This resulted in a fourth goal by Carys Jones, strengthening Gowerton’s lead.

Dinefwr fought hard and were able to make a break from a hit out pass, securing them their first and final point of the game, but Gowerton were unshaken. Responding with strong teamwork, the team utilised short, sharp passes and switching around the back in able to progress up the pitch. Soon after, Jess Williams scored her third goal of the match, closely followed by her fourth; securing a 6-1 win for Gowerton and a man of the match title for her 40th Birthday.

Overall, a positive game for Gowerton. Working cohesively as a team, they displayed calm, yet intricate play, throughout the match and attained a well deserved win.
