15th April 2016
Swansea City Ladies extended their unbeaten Welsh Women's Premier League run to six games on Wednesday with an impressive 7-0 victory over Newcastle Emlyn.
The game was dedicated to both the FAW Fair Play and Show Racism The Red Card campaigns, with the team warming up prior to the game sporting S.R.T.R.C t-shirts.
The Swans raced out of the blocks with midfielder Emma Beynon opening the scoring after just four minutes.
Emlyn's keeper denied the Swans with a string of great saves but winger Katy Hosford eventually doubled the lead midway through the first half.
Amanda John and Courtney Thomas added a third and fourth before the break to give Swans Ladies a comfortable 4-0 lead at half time.
Swansea continued to show their dominance after the restart with Kelly Newcombe netting their fifth just two minutes into the second half finishing into the corner after a brilliant individual run.
The home side continued to create chances down the flanks through Sarah Adams and Hosford before substitute Katie Davies scored from close range to make it 6-0.
Beynon grabbed her second of the match two minutes later finishing her run through the heart of Emlyn's defence to slot passed their keeper to round off an impressive 7-0 victory.
"It was good to be back and good to get the three points," said Swans keeper, Kate Brisland. "For me, it was important to keep a clean sheet. We look forward to our next game and hope to better our performance."
