Reserves remain unbeaten

7th October 2013

Swans Ladies Reserves continued their unbeaten run with a 1-1 draw at home to table toppers Cwmbran Celtic.


The Swans went a goal down midway through the first-half but battled valiantly to score an equaliser in the second forty-five.


During the early moments of the first period, Ian Owen's young Swansea City side were put under a lot of pressure by the robust and direct style of a very experienced Cwmbran team.


But the home side slowly found their way back in the game, having managed to weather the storm, with stand-in goalkeeper Chloe Lewis performing admirably.


The pace of Katy Hosford caused a few problems for Cwmbran's defence, but it was the visiting side that took the lead after a momentary lapse in concentration from the home side's defence.


Nevertheless, the young Swans reacted positively to the setback and finished the first-half on the front foot.


And Owen's side began the second-half as they ended the first - in a determined fashion, matching the physicality of Cwmbran and pressing forward at every opportunity.


The breakthrough came twenty minutes into the second period, following some good build-up play involving Aimee Hollingshead and Lisa Owen.


An attempted clearance from Cwmbran fell straight to Katie Davies (pictured), who struck a fierce shot into the roof of the net from 25-yards.


The goal kicked off a frenetic end to the game, with both sides going in search of the winner.


The Swans looked to have found the elusive goal through a curling effort from Kirsty O'Donnell, only for the referee to blow his whistle moments before her shot found the net, signalling the end of the match.
