Llangyfelach Ladies 0 Aberystwyth Town Ladies 8
Aber Town Ladies earned their first win of the season in some style with a convincing 8-0 victory away to bottom of the table side, Llangyfelach writes Steven Brookes.
Aber started the game slowly, losing possession a bit too often in the opening few minutes but despite this they were still the side creating the chances. Steph Land and Hannah Pusey were causing Llangyfelach numerous problems down the right and on 14 minutes Aber finally opened the scoring. Land’s excellent cross was headed in by Amy Jenkins from close range. This was Amy’s first match for Town since she got injured last season. Once Aber had scored their first goal they were immediately after a second. Both Jenkins and Naomi Evans’s attempts were narrowly wide of the goal. Naomi came close again just after the half hour mark when her effort hit the post from a tight angle. With 33 minutes gone it was two for Aber. The home side’s keeper was unable to keep hold of Evans’s shot and Pusey was the quickest to react. Rounding the keeper and tapping the ball into an empty net. Aber then scored two goals in a minute with Hannah Pusey this time turning provider. Her excellent cross was met with a superb diving header from Amy Jenkins to make it 3-0 and then Naomi Evans made it 4. This was her first goal of the season and it may end up being her best goal of the season, as the forward’s phenomenal long range right footed strike flew into the top corner. Jenkins completed her hat trick in the 41st minute. The keeper managed to get a hand on her long-range effort but could not prevent the ball ending up in the back of the net.
The Black and Greens made some early substitutes in the second half and eleven minutes in, Town got their sixth. Tania Wylde managed the lob the ball over the goalkeeper from the edge of the box. In the 64th minute Naomi Evans got her second of the game, showing great composure to bring the ball down and then flick it past the keeper. With a quarter of an hour left Evans completed her hat-trick when another brilliant cross from Hannah Pusey was volleyed in by the forward from just a few yards out.
Aber thoroughly deserved their 8-0 victory and now look forward to their first home league match of the season next Sunday against Cwmbran Celtic.
