BFL Ladies v Abergavenny Women – 7th April 2019
Briton Ferry Llansawel welcomed Abergavenny to Old Road on Sunday afternoon in their final home league match of the season.
The first half was a fairly scrappy affair with neither team able to get control of the game.
The visitors probably had the better of it with Courtney Young pulling off two good saves and captain Lowri Ridings making a last-ditch tackle to keep the scores level.
For the reds their best chances saw Megan Kearle’s shot saved and Lucy Powell firing just over from a free kick. However we reached the break scoreless.

The reds started the second half far better and created a number of chances in the first 10 minutes of the half with Charlotte Hastings in the Abergavenny goal saving well from Kearle and Caitlin Owen and Kearle seeing another effort come back off the woodwork.
However, it was Abergavenny that opened the scoring against the run of play in the 64th minute when Kate Jeremiah finished from a well delivered corner.
This was quickly followed by another fine save from Young before the Ferry equalised in the 70th minute with a well struck free kick from Lucy Powell.
The reds at this point were on top and in the 84th minute deservedly took the leads with a great strike from Kearle right into the top corner giving Hastings in the Abergavenny goal no chance.
The reds were then able to see out the final minutes to pick up the 3 points that sees them move out of the relegation zone in the Welsh Premier Women’s league with three games remaining.
