Norway win second meeting
 Women's Football News 4 Feb 2013
Norway completed a brace of victories over Wales in their double header of Under-19 friendly internationals by winning 4-0 in their second meeting at TNS. 
Conditions were cold and dry and both sides took the opportunity to make changes from the sides that played on Friday night at Newtown.
The strength of the Norwegians was still clear for all to see, though Wales adapted well to the new playing surface and held their own in the opening ten minutes, but sadly an opportunist cross by Norwegian Nis Voltersvik fooled Wales goalkeeper, Alice Evans and went straight into the net on 13 minutes.
Wales responded well to the setback and certainly showed more character in the next fifteen minutes, though openings were few and far between. A second lapse by goalie Evans on 30 minutes gave Norway their second goal when a shot from the edge of the area by Cecilie Redisch Kvamme went through her fingers and over the line.
It was perhaps a little harsh on the Welsh girls who had competed well in midfield, but goal number three, a minute from half time, settled the contest - a rasping shot from 20 yards from Marit Sandtroen.
Norway made several substitutions at the interval and continued to dominate. Goal number four came from a free kick on the edge of the area when keeper Evans had been penalised for time wasting. The free kick by substitute Therese Asland was unstoppable.
With the match decided, both teams made numerous substitutions to give game time to their squads, Norway with their Elite Round games in mind and Wales with further progression towards the summer finals in August that they host.
At the end of the game, Wales could once again feel that they had been taught some footballing lessons. However, when those lessons are applied to future matches then they will be of great benefit to the Wales team as they look to the summer finals.
The squad will next play in a friendly tournament in La Manga, Spain, in March.
Wales Under-19: Alice Evans, Rhian Cleverly, Lauren Hancock, Lauren Price, Danielle Oates, Angharad James, Lia Lewis, Rachel Hignett, Emma Beynon, Ellie Leek, Samantha Quayle. Subs: Abbie Shore, Alys Hinchcliffe, Shannelle Edwards, Mali Summers, Amy Wathan, Catherine Walsh, Kelly Bourne, Sydney Hinchcliffe, Jade Boulton.
