Exe 1, Swansea 1
A second half goal from Laura Allen gave Exe a deserved share of the spoils in a contest watched by a large crowd.
The game started with Swansea putting on the pressure but Exe held their own with some great defending creating breaks for the attack to take advantage of.
Swansea struck first, scoring in the 20th minute with the aid of a deflection from a penalty corner.
After the break parity was restored with Allen the scorer.
Exe continued to put pressure on Swansea, winning more short corners and creating nice passages of play. However, Swansea were also awarded numerous short corners nearing the end of the game, putting a lot of pressure on Exe and leading to a nail biting final 10 minutes with the defence managing to keep the visitors at bay!
