PENLAN eased themselves into the next round of the FAW Trophy with a convincing victory over fellow Swansea team Mumbles Rangers on Saturday (Oct 29).
Penlan opened the scoring after only three minutes when their captain Luke Edwards headed home from a corner kick.
After half an hour the same player (Luke Edwards ) scored his second goal and probably the best goal of the entire game when he scored direct from a free kick from some twenty five yards out from goal.
The visitors at two nil up were rarely troubled by the home team and were comfortably in control when the half time whistle blew, 0-2.
Mumbles Rangers struggled to make any headway in the second half as the visitors stood firm. Rangers’ best chance of a goal was when a header was cleared off the Penlan goal line.
Penlan responded and after a series of Mumbles Rangers failed defensive attempts to clear their lines the ball fell kindly to Penlan’s Dylan Rich who chipped his shot into the unguarded Rangers goal and effectively ended this game as a contest.
Penlan’s game management saw out the remaining time and they celebrated their win at the final whistle.
Mumbles Rangers must get over their recent cup disappointments and now focus on the Ardal Southern SW League fixtures.
