AFTER recently leading at Brecon 4 – 1, Brecon fought back and managed a 4 all draw so this was a golden opportunity for Milford Ladies to seek revenge with them visiting the astro turf on Saturday (Feb 9).
Milford started well by having majority of possession in the first 20 minutes and some excellent passing between midfield and attack resulted in Milford taking the lead when Kacey Arran scored right on the 20 minute mark.
However Brecon came back with some quick attacking plays and were fortunate when a deflection came off defender Vicki John’s stick to allow Brecon to even the score.
The second half started with both teams going in search of the victory and a chance by Milford’s Megan Jones going 1 on 1 with the goalie but sent the ball slightly wide.
Captain Rachel Coe then scored ten minutes into the half after a ball from Charlotte Davies, Milford’s player of the match, making it 2-1.
Soon after Rachel had another golden opportunity to put Milford further ahead with but again some superb keeping by Brecon’s goalkeeper another chance went begging.
Brecon were not to be undone and during another strong attack they scored with 15 minutes to go bring the scores level again
With both teams striving to find a winner it was Brecon who came up trumps when they took the lead with 2 minutes of the game left.
Milford’s Captain Rachel Coe stated: “Once again we come up short however I cannot fault the effort by our team, once again the youngsters gave their all, we knew it was going to be tough in this league and currently we are not having the rub of the green, however I am convinced we will soon get back to winning ways.”
