Aberystwyth Town beat their local rivals Llanidloes 2-0 on a bittery cold day at Park Avenue in the only Welsh Premier Women's League match to beat the bad weather on Sunday.
As ever a clash between the two teams proved to be a nail biting affair. An early chance from Ffiona Evans in the second minute was denied by Llanidloes goalkeeper Rebecca Gunson as she parried the ball around the upright.
Three minutes later, a well executed strike from Stephanie Land put the home team on the scorecard and into the lead. But Llanidloes rallied and in the 17th minute Amy Watkins' through run was intercepted by Nia Jones and a quickly executed counter attack by Sian Evans was stopped by a hard challenge from Alex Waldron. A right wing run from Tania Wylde resulted in a well placed cross at the feet of Mel Davies but she was crowded out by Stephanie Hughson and Elin Green.
The second half saw Llanidloes, who would have gone third with a win, take the game to Ray Hughes' squad and in the 48th minute a strike from Gemma Lloyd was pushed over the bar by Keryn Hawkins. Again and again the visitors pushed at the home defence but hard working Kelly Thomas broke the run of play time and time again.
However a 54th minute goal from Gemma Kay put Aber two up and forced the visitors to step up their game. True to form Llanidloes hit back hard and fast with chances coming from Waldron and Jenny Broughall. Amy Jenkins, in a breathtaking one-two with new signing Claire Thomas, almost put the home side three up in the 85th minute but the game ended with three well deserved points for Aberystwyth as they continue their remarkable turnaround in the latter part of the season.
