South Wales Women’s Hockey League Division 1: Llandysul 3-0 Milford Haven 

On a very wet, cold and windy day Milford Ladies travelled to Ceredigion to play Llandysul.

The two teams started well with some good hockey being played on both sides. However, it was Llandysul who got the first goal after 10 minutes.

For the remainder of the first half, Milford tried valiantly to level the scores but although playing they were playing the better hockey they had no luck finding the back of the net.

Due to the inclement weather both teams agreed to a quick turnaround at half time with Milford again playing well from the start.

But despite striving to get back into the game and creating numerous chances, the ball simply wouldn’t go in.

And as the tide turned they ended up defending strongly against one of the best teams in the division and it was only a matter of time before Llandysul added to their lead.

They duly forced a number of short corners and with ten minutes to go they were able to score a brace of quick goals to seal the result and run out 3-0 winners.

Milford captain Rachel Coe was philosophical afterwards.

“It’s so disappointing to once again lose on the road,” she said.

“I cannot fault the determination in this very young Milford team, but just like the Wales rugby team they gave their all but it wasn’t to be our day.

“We have a free week this week so it will give us time to get over things, regroup, and look forward to our next encounter.”
