Nantymoel prove too strong for Cwmgors

CWMGORS found it difficult and were always playing catch-up against a Nantymoel side who have lost just the once all season, in this Division 3 West central fixture at a windy Parc y Werin.

The visitors kicked off towards the main road, and were soon on the attack, and were awarded a fifth-minute penalty try by the referee as Cwmgors made the worst start possible.

The Cherries had early opportunities to trouble the scoreboard, but Jordan Smith’s brace of penalty-attempts failed to hit the target.

However, the home side hit back positively and an excellent run by Andrew Mason created the opening,and “Ows” finished off for the try, which Jordan Smith converted to level the scores.

Cwm fell behind again before half time as Nant grabbed a well worked second try.

Early in the second half, Cwmgors’ victory chances were dealt a massive blow as Nantymoel grabbed two quickfire tries to give themselves breathing space and a 24-7 lead, along with the bonus point.

The visitors added a fifth later, but, the home side to their credit stuck to their task and were rewarded when from a line out peel, Owen Wright broke away to touch down their second try of the afternoon. Andrew Mason added the conversion.

Cwmgors’ next league fixture is on Saturday, March 4 away at Cwmafan, who themselves earned a convincing 19-0 victory at
Cwmllynfell at the weekend.
