Merlins Bridge see off Kilgetty challenge

MERLINS Bridge saw off the challenge of a good Kilgetty side on Saturday (Dec 10) as they extended their unbeaten league run to 10 matches.

The win also keeps them six points clear at the top of the table with one round of fixtures to go before the Christmas break.

Lloyd Hughes saw a shot saved after 17 minutes but just four minutes later it was Merlins Bridge who took the lead.

From a throw, the ball came to Sam Christopher who turned the ball back for Ben Davies who saw his shot blocked. The ball then fell to Ashley Beck who saw his effort blocked before the rebound was finally tapped in by Matthew D’Ivry.

Richard Cope then saw a shot pushed wide by the Bridge keeper as Kilgetty looked to get back into the game.

Then, four minutes before the break, Richard Tebbutt saw his long-range effort hit the post but the rebound fell to Lloyd Hughes who shot down into the ground and the ball looped over the keeper and into the net.

Mark Davies then played the ball in for Henry Lawrence but the Bridge defender came across just in time to take the ball away.

It was 1-1 at the break and it was still all to play for in the second half.

Just six minutes into the next period it was the Bridge who got themselves back in the lead as Matthew D’Ivry scored his second goal of the game.

With just over twenty minutes still to play Dai Davies scored to make it 3-1 to the home side.

That was the end of the scoring as the Bridge held on for another win.

On Saturday, December 17, Merlins Bridge host Pennar Robins while Kilgetty host St Clears.
