Wales lose in Eurobowl Final

Filed under: Wales National Team — Josh @ 5:34 pm

Wales were beaten 14-6 by Slovakia in the Eurobowl Final in Brno on Friday. The Welsh team were unable to recover from a dreadful start when each of the Slovakian women in turn scored without reply inside the first 5 minutes. With Wales shooting not up to the mark, they finished the first-half 9-2 behind. The second half was more competitive, with Dave Buckland completing a hat-trick, Nick Wilkins also scored along with subsititutes Steve and Kim Jones. However, they were unable to bridge the gap in a match that highlighted 2 of the recurring problems for the Welsh national team in its short existence – the lack of tough competition for the players based in Wales and the lack of goals from the female players.
