Dinas Abertawe/Swansea City 1 Tref Aberystwyth Town 1
Hawliodd Menywod Tref Aberystwyth canlyniad anferthol arall y prynhawn yma, gyda gem gyfartal o 1-1 i ffwrdd i Ddinas Abertawe, a phwynt oedd yn ddigon i’w codi nol I’r Pedwar Uchaf, gydag un gem ar ol cyn yr hollt hanner tymor. Cic rhydd gwyrthiol arall gan Niamh Duggan rhoddodd Aber ar y blaen, ac mi amddiffynnon nhw fel teigrod nes i Jessica Williams unioni’r sgor i’r Elyrch wyth munud o’r dwedd.
Aber Town Women earned another momentous result this afternoon, with a battling 1-1 draw away to Swansea City which took them back up into the Top Four, with one more game remaining before the mid season split. Another stunning free kick from Niamh Duggan gave the Seasiders a shock lead and they defended like Trojans until Jessica Williams equalised for the Swans with eight minutes to go.
If Thursday’s match showed Aber at their attacking best, this match showcased their defensive attributes as the hosts dominated possession, but were constantly frustrated by strong blocks, challenges, saves and clearances. Margot Farnes was particularly impressive in goal and young Libby Isaac also stood out like a rock at centre back. Then, on 28 minutes the visitors won a free kick 30 yards out, and up stepped set piece specialist Duggan to curl in a sumptuous effort into the far top corner, stunning the hosts. Aber held on until the break and a shock result was on.
More of the same followed in the second half with wave after wave of pressure defied by the Black and Green back line. Rebecca Mathias and Isaac were rock like at centre back, with midfielders Lily Moralee-Hughes and Duggan doing their best to break up Swansea’s patient build up play. Just as it looked like Town might hold out, Jessica Williams pounced eight minutes from time – and Aber survived twelve further minutes, including an injury time free kick held comfortably by Farnes, to earn a draw which certainly felt like a win, given the balance of play.
This big result sets up a winner takes all tussle at Park Avenue against The New Saints next Sunday evening at 5.10pm: however today’s point means that a draw would also suffice for the brilliant Black and Greens to make the Top Four at the fourteen game split. Not to be missed!
