PENNAR Robins picked up an important three points away at rivals Hundleton on Saturday (Apr 2).
Pennar started the game well and took the lead on 10 minutes with captain Thomas Grimwood scoring a left footed drive from 25 yards out.
They then doubled their lead on 14 minutes with Craig Asparassa picking up a loose ball in the Hundleton box, proceeding to squeeze the ball past Hundleton keeper Fienhage.
Rory Williams was was then forced into action in the Pennar goal, pulling off two excellent saves from Charlie Perkins and Grant Overend, after some great build up play from Hundleton.
Hundleton made half time changes and started the second half the stronger, seeing a lot more of the ball but being unable to break the Robins’ defence.
That defence was finally broken on 62 minutes when a long ball over the top was latched onto superbly by right back William Abrahams, finishing into the far corner of the net.
Pennar were dangerous on the counter but couldn’t find the third goal. Hundleton were then rewarded with a deserved equaliser when a Ross Jones’ defensive header fell to Cameron Brunton, who fired into the net from all of 20 yards.
But the match winner came from Pennar’s player-manager Sam Southcott in stoppage time, who chested in the ball at the back post after an inviting free kick from Connor Roberts.
The Robins withstood a final few minutes of Hundleton pressure and saw out the game as winners.
Pennar are in action on Tuesday, April 5, as they take on Carew, while on Thursday (Apr 7), they travel to Neyland.
