Swansea City Ladies

17th October 2016

Swansea City Ladies recorded their fourth victory of the 2016-17 campaign with an impressive 6-0 victory over Aberystwyth Town Ladies at Park Avenue on Sunday. 
Swansea took an early lead through Stacey John in the second minute following a sharp free-kick from Sarah Adams. 
John had an opportunity to double the Swans' advantage minutes later, but saw her effort go wide before Emma Beynon's attempt was just off target. 
Ria Hughes strengthened the Swans' lead just before the break after some great build-up play from Adams. 
After the restart, the Swans continued to create chances with Katie Davies flicking a header just wide. 
Substitute Jodie Passmore showed some superb attacking play as the Swans searched for their third of the afternoon. 
Sophie Hancocks extended the visitors' lead when she slotted home following a great cross from the left in the 69th minute before Stacey John netted her second of the match minutes later thanks to a superb assist from Passmore.
Swans Ladies continued to push in the final third and took a 5-0 lead minutes before full-time with a superb strike from Beynon from the edge of the box. 
John completed her hat-trick and sealed the win for Ian Owen's side with a low drive.
After the match, goalscorer Hughes expressed her delight with the result that leaves the Swans second in the Welsh Premier Women's League.
"I thought as a team, we played really well and dominated throughout the game," she said. "We capitalised on our chances and the score line reflects that."
