Tregaron too good for Llangwm

Published

Llangwm              26

Tregaron              42

League 3 West A

A DETERMINED Llangwm side were beaten 42-26 by Tregaron in their opening game of the season at Pill Parks on Saturday (Sept 2).

It was Tregaron who made the better start with only two minutes gone as Mel Davies raced over in the left corner but Outside Half Gwion Phillips failed to add the extra two points.

Phillips then kicked a penalty soon after to give the visitors an 8-0 lead.

Llangwm looked to clear their lines but when a kick was charged down the ball rolled into the try area and it was Davies again who touched the ball down despite the best efforts of Josh Hicks. The conversion was wide and Tregaron’s lead remained at 13-0.

With twenty minutes gone, Llangwm started to come into the game and after winning a series of penalties, they opted to kick for goal and Steve Inward sent the ball through the posts to reduce the gap.

Try: Gavin Jones goes over for Llangwm’s first try

However, just two minutes later, Mel Davies faked a pass to create some space and was able to burst through for his hat-trick try and Gwion Phillips added the extra two points for a 20-3 lead.

The home side did not give up and were soon back on the attack and kicked to touch for a line out on the 22. They won the lineout but another infringement gave the home side a scrum. From there Gavin Jones picked up the ball and burst his way through to score the try and Inward added the extra two points.

With two minutes to go until half time Llangwm pushed for a second try and were rewarded when Luke Hayman made his way over and Inward sent the conversion through the posts to make it 20-17.

On the stroke of half time Tregaron were awarded a penalty which Phillips sent through the posts for a 23-17 half time score line.

Llangwm started well in the second half and reduced the gap further when Inward kicked a penalty from the half way line, assisted by the wind, to make it 23-20.

But as Llangwm looked to keep the pressure on they began to tire and Tregaron took advantage to close the game out.

Rhydian Jones crossed over but the conversion from Phillips was wide.

Hefin Ebenezer also went over and Gethin Jones crossed, both of which were converted by Phillips.

Inward added a final penalty for the hosts but it wasn’t enough as Tregaron closed the game out for a first win of the season.

On Saturday, September 9, Llangwm will be looking to bounce back when they travel to St Davids.

Veteran Vikings beaten by Swansea

Published

on

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.

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.
