Swans Ladies finish on a high

29th April 2019

Swansea City Ladies secured a second-place finish in the Welsh Premier Women's League thanks to a 5-0 win at Port Talbot on the final day of the season.

Lauren Smith, Katy Hosford, Kelly Adams, Emma Beynon and Sarah Adams all got on the scoresheet for the visitors to ensure they edged out Cardiff City to finish as runners-up to Cardiff Met.

The Swans Ladies had come into this game on the back of a strong run of form, and they surged into a two-goal half-time lead.

Smith had opened the scoring in the 17th minute, heading home from a fine Hosford cross to reward a strong start from Ian Owen's side.

Hosford herself added the second just a minute later, while Sarah Adams twice went close to adding to the tally further before the interval.

Kelly Adams added the third, seven minutes into the second half and the scoreline stayed that way until the dying moments.

Beynon scored the Swans' fourth with a trademark finish in the 88th minute, before Sarah Adams got the goal her performance deserved in stoppage time to complete a convincing win to round off the campaign.
