DISAPPOINTMENT was the overriding emotion for skipper Alicia Powe after her Swansea City side dropped their first points of the season in the Genero Adran Premier.

In contrast, opponents Aberystwyth Town were buzzing having ended the league leaders’ 11-game winning streak thanks to a resolute defensive display in Llandarcy.

While a 0-0 draw at the champions would have felt like a win for the Seasiders, who now look odds-on to claim fourth place before the split, there was a feeling of frustration in the home camp.

“Obviously we are disappointed,” said Powe. “We gave everything and unfortunately we couldn’t get all three points.

“We had loads of opportunities and, in all fairness to their goalkeeper and their team, they gave everything.

“That is football sometimes, you become unstuck against a lower team, and they penalise you by taking points, so I am obviously disappointed.

“We played really good football and we had our chances but unfortunately we couldn’t capitalise on everything and that is just how it goes.

“We know we can go into Christmas hopefully still a few points ahead of our rivals.

“We are still in good spirits, and we got a point. A point is a point at the end of the day."

For Aberystwyth manager Gavin Allen and goalkeeper Ffion Ashman, there was a huge sense of pride following the draw, which came 10 days after Swansea won the reverse fixture 3-0.

“Proud of these women to take a point from a team who played Champions League – first team this season to take points from them,” tweeted Allen.

“Fantastic development over the past few months. My Adran Leagues team of the week all day after this performance.”

Ashman tweeted: “I don’t know where to start, I am so proud of all the girls and staff. What a performance, what a result.

“To take a point off Swansea, and as a keeper, there is no better feeling than a clean sheet. This team is going somewhere.”

Sunday’s match was a first in Swansea colours for new signing Karmyn Carter, the American striker who joined from Bridgwater United.

Carter, a 75th-minute replacement for Chloe Tiley, had the ball in the back of the Town net late in the game before her effort was disallowed.

“I’m delighted to be at Swansea,” said the Detroit native. “I’m happy they have been able to help in this transitional period of my career so quickly.

“I’m looking forward to the rest of the season with the Swans.”

This Sunday, Swansea host The New Saints and Aberystwyth, who hold a three-point advantage over fifth-placed Pontypridd Town, travel to Port Talbot.
