Fi­nal is a step too far as valiant Stars are beaten

Llanelli Star - - SPORT -

CAR­MARTHEN Stars Girls Un­der12s were beaten 2-0 by Llan­darcy A in the fi­nal of the West Wales Women’s and Girls’ League Cup.

The first half was a tight af­fair, with the Stars able to shut down the po­tent Llan­darcy at­tack.

With both de­fences on top and a very lim­ited num­ber of chances cre­ated by either side, the teams went in level at the break.

It al­ways ap­peared that the first side to score would win the game, and that goal went to Llan­darcy, who took the lead early in the sec­ond half.

As al­ways the Stars bat­tled to the end, but while push­ing for the equaliser Llan­darcy took ad­van­tage and scored a sec­ond to ef­fec­tively end the game.

A club spokes­woman said: “We are ex­tremely proud of what the girls have achieved this sea­son, finishing third in the league and reach­ing the cup fi­nal in their first full sea­son.

“We want to em­pha­sise the fact that this is the first year of mean­ing­ful competitio­n for the vast ma­jor­ity of this side.

“They were play­ing against mainly Year 7 pupils who had been play­ing to­gether since un­der-8s, the ma­jor­ity of whom were in the West Wales and re­gional set-ups.

“We would also like to thank all the par­ents and fam­ily mem­bers who have been a great help with set­ting up the field at home games and their sup­port both home and away all sea­son.”
