The First Team picked up 3 points on Saturday after beating Machynlleth 1-0 at Ty Brith. Peter Rees broke the deadlock on the stroke of half time to see us claim maximum points.
We were slow to start in a scrappy first half, Mach had a few chances as Ger Jones cleared one off the line and Mach also hit the bar from long range. Gregg Brown hit the post for us after getting on the end of a Jordan Jones cross. Peter Rees, Richie Evans and Ashley Owen all then had half chances as we finished the half strongly. That dominance paid off on the stroke of half time. Ioan Humphreys flicked on a Kris Williams goal kick to Richie Evans, he slipped in Peter Rees who fired the ball into the net with his left foot from 18 yards.
The second half saw very few clear cut chances created by either side. Ger Jones again cleared one off the line from a corner and Kris Williams made a fine stop with his feet to deny the Mach striker. We should have killed the game off with Peter Rees, Jordan Jones and Ben Jones all having efforts on goal in the final few minutes. We kept our 4th clean sheet in a row though as the game finished 1-0.
