Cofis top af­ter los­ing only one

Caernarfon Herald - - SPORT -

CAERNAR­FON Ladies have made a strong start to the sea­son, cur­rently oc­cu­py­ing top spot in the North Wales Women’s Hockey League.

Caernar­fon have had only one dis­ap­point­ing loss – against Ban­gor Univer­sity – in their first five games. They will also com­pete in the cup quar­ter-fi­nals on De­cem­ber 2.

The Cofis bounced back from their loss to Ban­gor Uni with a 4-0 win against Llan­dudno on Novem­ber 8 thanks to a hat-trick from Lois Welsh and a goal from player of the match Manon Wil­liams.

An­other great re­sult fol­lowed against Pen­l­lyn last Satur­day with Caernar­fon play­ing well as a team. Strong in­ter­cep­tions from PoM Gwen Wilkin­son and skil­ful pass­ing be­tween mid­field­ers and for­wards led to two goals by Manon Wil­liams be­fore half time.

Af­ter switch­ing po­si­tions, Pen­l­lyn came back in the sec­ond half, putting the pres­sure on the Caernar­fon de­fence.

Fol­low­ing a third goal by Caernar­fon’s winger Rhi­an­non Evans, the Bala scored twice shortly be­fore the last whis­tle for a fi­nal score of 3-2.

Caernar­fon’s next league game will be played at Plas Si­lyn, Peny­groes on Novem­ber 25 against Ban­gor City.
