South Wales Women’s Hockey League Division 2:
Swansea University 2nds 3
Milford Haven Ladies 4

TWO goals each for Rachel Coe and Jemma Phillips kick-started a great weekend for Milford in Swansea that would see the side notch two away league wins in as many days - sending them top of the table in the process.

The visitors started slowly at the King Edward V Playing Fields, conceding early after a goal mouth scramble.

But Milford didn’t let their heads drop and despite limited possession, started to create opportunities. 

Their reward came just before half time as Kacey Arran’s perfectly timed through ball sent Coe off towards the by line, and she pulled the ball back for Phillips to slot home.

And now with the momentum, Milford flew out of the blocks in the second half with two more early strikes.

First Charlotte Davies drove into the D after a quickly taken free hit, and slipped in Phillips for her second.

Then moments later, another sweet Davies pass left Coe one on one with keeper, and she fired home for a commanding 3-1 lead. 

However, the game remained wide open and the home side struck back to make it 3-2.

But despite both teams looking dangerous it was Milford who got the killer blow as Coe smashed home from a short corner. 

Swansea did manage to score one more late on, but it was no more than a consolation.

In their second trip of the weekend to Swansea, Milford played at The Elba Sports Complex on Sunday.

After the previous day Milford started full of confidence and raced into a 2-0 lead with goals from both Coe and Phillips again.

Yet, the home side clawed both goals back before half time with some good counter attacking play.

With the scores level, Milford again took the lead after the break with a great reverse stick strike from Coe.

But City refused to lie down and frustrated the visitors as they levelled immediately. 

However, Milford finally took firm control, creating several chances before a long ball from Kate Farr put Coe one on one, and she finished calmly to complete her hat-trick and a second successive player of the match performance. 

With their tails up, another Milford attack down the right saw Coe feed Davies, who drove into the D and teed up Zoe Eagle to tap home, securing an excellent weekend of results. 

Captain Emma Summons said: “It was two fantastic performances from the squad showing great attitude, commitment, and fighting spirit.

"This puts us top of the table and with a game in hand.”

This Saturday, Milford host Llandysul on the astroturf, 2:30pm pushback.
