Below-par Goodwick beat Dragons

West Dragons 0
Goodwick United 3

GOODWICK UNITED continued their good start to the season as they beat West Dragons 3-0. Goodwick travelled to the Dragons full of confidence but it was the Dragons who dictated the play in the first half.

Despite early pressure from the Dragons it was Goodwick who took the lead with 15 minutes gone when Stephen Evans ghosted into the box skipped past Andrew Mathias and put the ball into the net. The Dragons continued to play the ball through the Goodwick midfield and goalkeeper James Gwillt was called upon several times to prevent the Dragons scoring.

From a corner Palmer thundered the ball against the crossbar and Gwillt reacted brilliantly to save the rebound. As the half drew to a close Johnny Horgan hit the post and a minute later Lewis Banks hit the crossbar. The half time whistle blew with Goodwick still leading 1 – 0.

Some harsh words were delivered by manager Nigel Delaney during the interval and Goodwick came out for the second half with a more determined attitude. That team talk seemed to work as just two minutes in Goodwick had their second goal. Kieran O’Brien released right back Karl Hedley on the overlap and his cross into the box was knocked into the net by a Dragons defender.

This settled Goodwick and the Dragons were forced to hit long balls into the Goodwick penalty area which were comfortably handled by the outstanding Gwillt. Club captain Wayne O’Sullivan came on in place of Darren Devonald and played very well, continuing his comeback from his cruciate injury.

With fifteen minutes left Ryan Howells beat three defenders on the right and played a perfect through ball for Evans to finish to the net. The final scoreline doesn’t give credit to the excellent football played by the Dragons. They might be bottom of the table but if they continue to play in this way better times are around the corner. It may not have been Goodwick’s best performance but they will be pleased with an away win and a clean sheet which sees them move joint top of the league.

CRESSELLY made it through to the semi-finals of the Harrison Allen Bowl on Tuesday night (Jun 22) as they beat Llangwm by three runs.

The visitors batted first and made a good score of 165-5 from their 22 overs.

Bayley departed as he was caught by Phil Llewellyn off the bowling of Noah Davies on a score of 17.

Sutton was joined by Iwan Izzard and the pair shared an excellent second-wicket stand worth 96 runs.

Both reached their half centuries in that stand but it was eventually broken by Chris Inward who had Izzard caught by Richard Brock.

Izzard had thumped four fours and five sixes in his score of 59 from just 37 balls.

Llangwm began to hit back as Joe Phillips had Ryan Lewis caught by Joe Kiff and Sutton was then run out.

Sutton hit five fours and two sixes in his score of 57 and his wicket left the score on 158-4.

Matthew Morgan made a late score of 15 but he was bowled by Phillips as Llangwm gave themselves a target of 166 to win the game.

Their reply did not get off to the best of starts though as Joe Kiff was caught by Matthew Morgan off the bowling of Tom Murphy.

Phil Llewellyn and Steven Mills shared 24 runs for the second wicket but Ryan Lewis had Llewellyn stumped by Neilson Cole on a score of 20.

Mills made a score of 18 but he was bowled by Charlie Arthur as Llangwm slipped to 67-3.

Luke Brock and Matthew Kiff then shared 68 runs for the fourth wicket to keep Llangwm very much in the game.

Brock smashed his way to a score of 59 from 27 balls with three fours and five sixes but he was caught by Tom Arthur off the bowling of Lewis.

There was some big hitting in the Llangwm innings but they fell just short

Kiff hit six fours and two sixes in a score of 41 from 24 balls as the home side looked to bring the required run rate down.

However, Kiff was then bowled by Tom Arthur to reduce Llangwm to 148-5.

Chris Inward took the score to 155 with a maximum but he was bowled on the next ball by Charlie Arthur.

He did the same to Richard Brock soon after and when Tom Murphy had Noah Davies caught by Tom  Arthur, Llangwm’s chances of victory had all but gone.

With the score on 158-8, Ollie Davies could only add four more to the total meaning Cresselly were victorious by just three runs.
