Quick double strike hurts Cwmamman

CWMAMMAN United came away from their visit to Lydstep Park disappointed that, having had a good share of the game, a three minute spell where the Draconians pounced for two goals denied them at least a point.

The game took place in a high wind and the early stages proved to be a physical encounter. Travis James was booked for a critical but heavy tackle on the edge of the box in the 9th minute and Cwm were relieved to see it come to nothing.

Both sides then had some chances with the best falling to Cwm’s Ryan Hurlow who escaped the defence only to see Dracs keeper Harry Johnson block the shot. Cwm’s keeper Kai Rees was then called upon to make a couple of great saves.

No goals at the interval and both sides created some opportunities again early in the second half. Scott Jewell for Cwm came close but Lloyd Toghill’s long throws for the Dracs were now causing some problems and the opening goal came from a flick on header that was not cleared and Liam Williams steered it home from a tight angle in the 54th minute.

With Cwm hoping to get back up at the other end some hesitancy allowed Josh Payne to fire a low shot home from the edge of the box in the 57th minute.

With the game slipping away and needing some urgency Cwm brough on Jordan Simpson who was immediately effective helping launch some good attacks. Hurlow was again foiled in another one on one while Mikey Morgan saw his shot cleared off the line.

Surprisingly there were no further goals with both sides pressing and it should be noted that Nathan Davies and Luke Sherbon had huge games at the heart of the Cwm defence.

Next Friday at Grenig Park at 7.30pm Cwm host Ton Pentre who are just below them in a huge match for both sides.
