Welshpool Women 7-12 Llangollen Women

Narrow defeat in hugely entertaining match

Welshpool's Women fell to a narrow defeat against Llangollen in the Game On League in a tight and keenly fought match at Maesydre.

Both teams played the game with a huge amount of commitment and no small amount of skill, with both sides looking to play plenty of rugby.

The home side were the first off the mark with a try after fifteen minutes, which was converted to give them a 7-0 lead. However, Llangollen fought back and crossed for a score of their own five minutes later, to bring them back to within two points at 7-5.

With Welshpool reduced to fourteen players after a yellow card, Llangollen were able to take advantage of their numerical superiority to cross for their second try, which was converted to give them a 7-12 lead at half time.

Despite the lack of points in the second half, the game could have gone either way, with both sides having opportunities to score. With nerves jangling, Welshpool suffered their second yellow card of the day with around twelve minutes to go, before Llangollen found themselves down to fourteen as well shortly after. Despite this, neither side could break the other down, and the score remained 7-12 at the final whistle.

Welshpool: Sophie Lewis, Lottie Morris, Sharon Davies, Courtney Jones, Keli Williams, Chloe Davies, Sian Bailey, Lucia Alexander, Grace Johns (C), Rachael Ferguson, Michelle Petryszyn, Disa Manuel, Ellie Davies, Lauren Davies, Sally Humphreys, Natalie Higgins, Alice Foster, Terri-Ann Ratledge, Freya Needham, Natalie Butler, Rhiannon Jones
