Report: Swans Ladies 1 Cyncoed Ladies 0
The Swans Ladies ended another successful season in the Welsh Premier Women’s League by securing second place with a 1-0 victory over Cyncoed Ladies.
The Swans, who were champions in 2016-17, finished runners-up to Cardiff Met this time around but they did claim the FAW Women’s Cup.
Lining up against Cyncoed for the third time this season, the Swans triumphed thanks to a second-half goal from Jodie Passmore in a game where both sides were fighting for second place.
It was a physical affair with little between the teams at Llandarcy Academy of Sport.
The Swans enjoyed the majority of the chances in front of goal, though, with Stacey John-Davis going close for Ian Owen’s side in the first 10 minutes as her lob bounced off the bar.
Cyncoed keeper O’Sullivan was called into action seconds later when Sarah Adams sent a searching ball into the box.
The deadlock was finally broken early in the second half as the ball fell to Passmore and she made no mistake to fire in her 18th league goal of the season, a tally which saw her finish as the WPWL’s third-highest scorer.
Sarah Adams had to head the ball off the line to deny Cyncoed an equaliser as the Swans held on for victory.
Swans Ladies: Border, Lake, Witts, Powe, Beynon, Adams, Hancocks, Newcombe, Hosford, John-Davis, Passmore.
Subs not used: Brisland, Thomas, Franks, O’Donnell.
