Vikings knock Swifts for six

Published

on

HAKIN United moved to the top of the table on Monday night (Apr 9), as they thrashed Monkton Swifts 6-1.

It was a dominant display from the Vikings who thoroughly deserved their victory which saw Nicky Woodrow scoring twice for the visitors.

They nearly took the lead after three minutes when Leigh Marchant’s cross into the box found Ben Fawcett but his shot went across the face of goal and out for a goal kick.

Fawcett then set up a chance for Woodrow but his header was saved by Monkton keeper Michael Murray.

With twelve minutes gone, Hakin opened the scoring as Marchant sent a free kick into the box which found Justin Harding and he lobbed the ball over the keeper before Ben Fawcett tapped the ball home on the line to make sure it went in.

Patrick McDonagh then beat the offside trap and went through one on one with the keeper but Adrian Devonald made a great save to deny him.

Moments later Hakin doubled their lead as Nicky Woodrow saw his first effort saved before firing a second effort low into the net.

Daniel Armstong’s header goes in despite keeper Murray getting a touch

It was soon 3-0 as Daniel Armstrong’s header trickled over the line despite Murray getting a hand to it.

Monkton then had a good spell in the game as Ben Nicholas came close when a corner floated just over the back post and McDonagh sent an effort just wide of the left hand post.

Gareth Hunt had a chance to score shortly before the break as he cut inside before shooting but his effort went over the bar.

The Vikings thought they had a fourth on the stroke of half time as good play between Adam John, Marchant and Woodrow saw the latter poke the ball home but the goal was ruled out for offside.

Hakin continued to put the pressure on early in the second half as a free kick from Ryan Wilson was tipped over before Woodrow headed straight at Murray.

Six minutes later they finally had their fourth goal as Adam John did well to win the ball back before shooting low into the bottom left corner.

Monkton pulled a goal back two minutes after as Ben Nicholas’ free kick was deflected in to the net.

Martin Carroll then came close to pulling a second goal back but his effort smacked off the post and the danger was cleared.

On the hour mark Marchant again sent a cross into the box which found Fawcett at the back post but he fired an effort just inches over the bar.

The Vikings then added a fifth goal soon after in fine style as Harding sent an excellent cross into the box for Woodrow who headed back across goal and into the top corner.

Gareth Hunt then saw a shot saved as did Joe Lewis as Monkton continued to look for more goals.

With six minutes to go Hakin made it 6-1 as Harding finally got the goal his play had deserved as he fired into the roof of the net after being set up by sub Jack Wilson.

On Thursday (Apr 12), Hakin make the trip to Lamphey while Monkton are next in action on Saturday (Apr 14), when they take on Goodwick United.

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.

Published

on

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.
