Caernar­fon deal well with dou­ble-header

Caernarfon Herald - - SPORT -

HAV­ING won pro­mo­tion in 2018 Clwb Hoci Caernar­fon (pic­tured) have strug­gled to adapt to North Wales Women’s League Divi­sion One - but things are look­ing up.

The first half of the sea­son ended with an away trip to Welsh­pool to play Llan­fair Caere­in­ion fol­lowed by a hop across to Ty­wyn later that day for a match against Dysynni.

Lead­ing up to the dou­ble header the Cofis had lost four of four but the early start, trav­el­ling and the very real prospect of Storm Deirdre did noth­ing to spoil the spir­its.

Llan­fair Caere­in­ion scored early but the Cofis had not trav­elled all this way to make up the num­bers and equalised with a poacher’s goal from Sara Pierce. A late penalty cor­ner char­ac­ter­is­ti­cally smashed in by Ceri Welsh gave them their first league win of the sea­son.

Mak­ing it to Dysynni be­fore the pitch was shut was a chal­lenge but the ladies made it. Dysynni came out wor­thy 8-2 win­ners, Natalie Meek with her first se­nior goal for the Cofis and a sec­ond of the day to Sara Pierce the con­so­la­tions. De­spite the score Caernar­fon bat­tled hard and can move on with op­ti­mism.

The team would like to thank Nerys John for brav­ing the weather and ad­min­is­ter­ing first aid in the hor­ren­dous weather.
