Risca 0

Milford Haven 6

screen-shot-2016-11-16-at-10-36-39MILFORD HAVEN made the long journey to Risca on Saturday (Oct 22) and despite only having the bare 11 to play, Milford’s spirits were high.

Both sides looked dangerous on the attack, but it was the visitors that were first out of the blocks, creating several chances in the first 10 minutes.

Rachel Coe was denied by a good save but made no mistake second time round with a clever reverse stick finish.

The second goal came in quick succession, with a good run by Meg Evans to draw the defence and create space for Charlotte Davies to find Elyse Morgan in the D who finished well.

Risca then started to move the ball about and created some opportunities to try and get back into the game.

Milford defence battled well under the pressure just before the break to keep the home side out with some excellent saves by keeper Yasmin Riggs, playing only her second game in goal.

A counter attack from deep saw the visitors increase their lead with a skillful finish by Coe, who found herself one-on-one with the keeper just before half time.

The second half was much the same as the first, with Milford controlling possession and moving the ball well, looking for an early goal. It didn’t take long for the visitors to be on the board again with a strong attacking run down the flank by Evans and a neat pull back for Morgan (fifth goal in only two games) to find the backboard with a well-timed strike.

The contest was effectively over with the hosts being 4-0 down but the home side came back fighting in periods during the second half.

A solid defensive performance by Vicki John, Kate Farr, Jane Jordan and keeper Riggs ensured the visitors kept a clean sheet. Steph Layton and Jess Barrett linked well down the left flank with the former forcing a mistake by the Risca defence to win a short corner.

The ball was played to Emma Summons at the top of the D who slipped the ball to Coe to complete her hat trick.

The final goal was the goal of the game, a loose ball was picked up in the visitors half and some superb interplay saw the ball moved from left to right after a series of passes found Coe in the D to finish off an impressive attack.

It was a good confidence booster for the squad on the back of a defeat, managing to keep a clean sheet and finishing some well-worked goals is always a positive. It was pleasing to see a good team performance and the effort and commitment was excellent.

Squad: Emma Summons, Yasmin Riggs, Vicki John, Kate Farr, Jane Jordan, Meg Evans, Charlotte Davies, Rachel Coe, Elyse Morgan, Steph Layton, Jess Barrett.

The team would like to thank their match sponsors – John & Delyth Summons.

Milford’s next game takes place on Saturday (Oct 29) against Gwernyfed at home – 2pm pushback.
