Caernarfon +, Ladies U18 - 48. Whitland Ladies U18 - 12.
The large and expectant crowd were given a treat by the up and coming talent on display from both teams. The tackling and in particular the handling to ensure continuity, was of the highest order throughout.
The home squad started brightly with a series of drives bringing them into the danger zone before prop Ruby Roberts burst through to score. Sara Roberts however soon gained parity on the score sheet when she, in Whitland colours, dislodged the ball from her sisters grasp to sprint clear and score. Amy Morgan adding the extras. Molly Kelly then surprised the retreating visitors by taking a quick tap penalty to squeeze in at the corner. Good facets of interlinking play followed before another quickly taken penalty by Heledd Roberts brought another five pointer and an added conversion courtesy of Sioned Phillips.
The game sadly went beyond Whitland's grasp just on the stroke of half time when Sara Roberts, this time in Cofi colours, broke free and found Elin Owen in support to score with Efa Williams, a valued contributor throughout adding the extras.
Whitland were however constantly resolute with Ceulyn Davies industrious at the base of the scrum and Amy Morgan and others carrying with purpose. Sadly the necessary speed to ensure daylight after breaking the initial tackle was not at hand. The Cofis on the other hand succeeded to capitalise with Sara Roberts again sprinting clear to score and grant Heledd Roberts a conversion. Steffanie Parry was another intelligent contributor who made the groundwork for captain Sophie Ellis to score with the mobile and apt front row then combining to free Lowri Davies to add another.
A big cheer however was reserved for Megan Davies who finally outpaced the cover the score a fine individual consolation try to reward Whitlands efforts.
The game drew to a close with another Cofi seven pointer, following another Sara Roberts dash from distance and a Heledd Roberts conversion.
The future for Womens rugby looks bright if these young ladies continue in this vein.
