Carew 1 – 1 Pennar

CAREW remain bottom of Division One after an entertaining draw at the Recreation Ground which could have gone either way, but for some wasteful finishing from both sides.

With the game starting at a slow pace, it was Carew who had the first opportunities with good work from Ceri Brace up front creating chances for Scott Ferney and Sam Goodwin, whilst a corner kick caused havoc in the Pennar area, but the numerous ricochets would not fall kindly for Carew’s players.

With 30 minutes gone Carew had a strong appeal for a penalty turned away by referee Tom Bevan as Ferney was clumsily bundled to the ground by the Pennar keeper, with the referee’s decision not to award the spot kick bamboozling both Carew and Pennar players alike.

Just moments later this decision looked even worse from a Carew point of view, as a long ball over the left full back saw Pennar get in behind, and despite being the only Pennar player in the box with five Carew defenders, Patrick McDonagh was given an age to turn and squeeze a shot on goal.

The resulting shot squirmed under the body of home keeper Dan James giving McDonagh his fourth league goal in four games, and saw Pennar go in at half time with what had seemed an unlikely lead.

The second half followed the same pattern as the first, and with Carew now attacking the clubhouse play was almost exclusively confined to the Pennar half, but the visitors did threaten on a few occasions as Carew consistently failed to deal with the long ball over the top for McDonagh to chase.

Carew got themselves back on level terms on the hour mark as more good work from Ceri Brace saw him free Scott Ferney inside the box, and he made no mistake with his finish as he placed the ball calmly into the corner.

Carew introduced extra attacking impetus in the shape of Ashley Smith, but despite creating several clear cut opportunities to win the game, the home side showed the confidence of a side that are bottom of the table, as they let chances pass them by.

With just five minutes left to go Carew had another penalty appeal turned down by Bevan, as Shaun Whitfield beat his opposite number to the ball at the near post from a corner, only to be hacked down after playing the ball. Despite fervent appeals the referee was unmoved in his usual defiant manner and both teams ended with a point.

Although Carew will feel this is a game they should’ve won, on the balance of chances created, Pennar deserved their point on the day.

Veteran Vikings beaten by Swansea



HAKIN United Over 40s travelled to the Llandarcy Academy of Sport last Sunday (Nov 28) to play Swansea University.

Hakin took the lead inside 10 minutes as Matthew Price raced clear of the Uni defence before side footing the ball into the bottom corner.

A great start for the Veteran Vikings, but on the half hour mark, two quick goals for the Swansea men turned the game on its head.

A third goal just before half time put Swansea firmly in the drivers seat, but, the Hakin players felt that the goal was offside and that there was a handball in the build-up.

However, despite all of the protests, the goal stood.

Hakin looked far more purposeful in the second half, but they failed to find a goal that was going to get them back in the game.

Hakin are next in action on Sunday, December 12, when Church Village visit the Obs.

Hakin 40s: Jim Payne, Nick Jones, Adam Collins, Ali Davies, Paul Hannon, Marc Devonald, Simon Atyeo, Mark Riley, Paul Jones, Matthew Price, Phil Richards.

Seagulls snatch late win over Nantgaredig



FISHGUARD scored a late try to seal their first win of the League 2 West season on Saturday (Nov 27) as they came from behind to beat Nantgaredig.

The Seagulls held a 12-5 lead at the break but Nant hit back in the second half to take a 17-12 lead.

Luke Marshall and Robbie Jones went over for the visitors while James Griffiths added one conversion.

Winger Iwan Thomas scored for the home side and vice-captain Gavin Orson scored and they were also awarded a penalty try.

Griffiths then slotted a penalty through the posts to bring the score back to 17-15.

With the clock ticking over the 80-minute mark, Fishguard attacked and were rewarded when Griffiths scored the try to put his side into the lead. Griffiths then added the extras before the referee blew for full time.

It left the home side feeling deflated having had the victory taken away from them in the last play of the game.

On Saturday, December 4, Fishguard are at home to Milford Haven while Nantgaredig travel to Tycroes.
