Thriller: Herbrandston entertained Goodwick in an entertaining match

GOODWICK United and Herbrandston shared the spoils in a thrilling 3-3 draw on Saturday. The visitors had the advantage of the strong wind in the first half but it was Herbie who settled the better and were stretching the Goodwick defence with some accurate passing and good movement off the ball. They took the lead on eight minutes when they were awarded a free kick 25 yards out. The ball was played into Scott Reid who controlled the ball with his left foot and instantly shot with his right foot high into the far corner of the Goodwick net.

Herbie continued to chase and harry Goodwick giving them no time to settle on the ball. With thirty minutes gone, Herbie keeper Gareth Marshalsay made a good save from Rhys Dalling’s fierce shot. Goodwick were now passing the ball better and had several shots from distance but they lacked accuracy. In injury time Goodwick broke up a Herbie attack on the halfway line and the ball was quickly played forward to Rob Morgans who beat Daniel Armstrong and fired a tremendous shot into the Herbie net. Herbie regained the lead on 55 minutes when a Goodwick pass was intercepted and Herbie broke quickly and drove at the heart of the Goodwick defence.

The ball was played out to Shane Walsh who shot right footed past James Gwilt in the goal. However, within two minutes Goodwick were level. They moved the ball from the right flank across midfield to Johnny Horgan who played the ball first time into the path of Lewis Banks, he hit the ball first time past Marshalshay. A superb team goal which was appreciated by supporters of both teams. On 70 minutes Goodwick took the lead when Morgans took possession of the ball and played a defence splitting pass to Dalling.

Dalling burst between two defenders, resisted a couple of strong challenges and dribbled past the keeper to walk the ball into the net. Herbie responded well and forced several corners which Goodwick had great trouble in defending. Reid hit the crossbar direct from one corner and just when it seemed that Goodwick were going to hold out for an important win Herbie equalised. Banks tried to volley the ball clear but the ball sliced off his foot and went high into the Goodwick box.

Walsh challenged for the ball with Nigel Delaney and the referee Dean Boswell decided that Walsh was fouled and gave a penalty. Reid gave Gwilt no chance from the spot to gain a point for Herbie. Goodwick now look forward to welcoming Ynysmeudwy Athletic from the Neath Premier League in the West Wales Cup next week.

Blues battle to win over Aberaeron in KO Cup



HAVERFORDWEST booked their place in the quarter finals of the Pembrokeshire KO Cup, where they will meet Pembroke Dock Harlequins, after beating Aberaeron on Wednesday night (Oct 20).

Despite the atrocious weather conditions, which saw rain batter the Pembroke Road playing surface for much of the game, both sides played an excellent game.

In the end it was the Blues who came out on top with a 44-6 win.

Outside Half Jake Morgan got the Blues rolling early on with a penalty and Rhys Baker then scored the game’s first try to make it 8-0.

Second Row Jack Clancy got his name on the score sheet but the conversion was missed.

Aberaeron then got themselves on the board with a penalty but the Blues were soon back on the attack with Will Blackburn next to go over.

That was converted by Morgan to give the home side a 20-3 lead.

Lewis Tingay and Rhys Baker added further tries for the Blues while Aber added a further penalty as the sides went in at half time with the score reading 30-6.

Early in the second half Tingay added his second try of the night and Morgan added the conversion.

That all but ended any hopes the away side had of getting themselves back in the game and the Blues continued to play despite the pouring rain.

Tingay then completed his hat trick with a try under the posts giving Morgan a simple conversion to make it 44-6.

There was no scoring in the final twenty minutes but the Blues had done the job and booked their place in the last eight.

Their quarter final with the Quins will be played on or before January 22.
