Swans Ladies extend unbeaten run

25th February 2019

Swansea City Ladies extended their unbeaten run to seven games in the Welsh Premier Women’s League after picking up a 4-0 victory away at Llandudno.

This result saw the Swans complete the double over The Seasiders, scoring 10 goals and keeping a pair of clean sheets in the process.

A first-half brace from Sophie Hancocks, along with finishes from Kelly Adams and Jodie Passmore after the break, saw Ian Owen's side take all three points.

The Llandudno defence held strong until the 40th minute until Lauren Smith whipped a ball in to the area which fell to Hancocks just outside the six-yard box, and she calmly slotted it past the keeper.

Just one minute later and Hancocks and Swansea had their second of the game as she again showed good composure to convert from an Adams cross.

It ensured the Swans went into the interval well-placed and it didn’t take them long to increase their lead after the restart.

Just five minutes into the second period Adams went from provider to scorer with a fine finish, the midfielder selling a dummy to beat the last defender and find the net with a left-footed finish.

In the closing stages in North Wales, Passmore rounded off a solid performance for the Swans with a lobbed finish over the goalkeeper.

It marked the Swans first game since their emphatic WPWL League Cup win over Rhyl last month, but there was no sign of rust from the visitors.

“After a couple of weeks off it was nice to get back playing and more importantly maintain our winning momentum,” said Hancocks

“For me personally, it was great to get on the scoresheet.”

Next up the Swans welcome league leaders Cardiff Met to the Llandarcy Academy of Sport on Sunday, March 10, with kick off at 2pm.
