Caernarfon deal well with double-header
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.
