Derby Day Defeat
The local derby started quite tamely with neither side creating much in the way of chances, then in the 18th minute Gwion Rowlands
did well to play a through ball which Cai Penny Williams
latched on to before cleverly lobbing the advancing keeper. The score line was doubled when after a Waenfawr free kick was cleared veteran striker Ian Pleming
won a challenge outside the box with Waen keeper Guto Evans and rolled the ball into the empty net.
Waenfawr then gained a foothold in the game and Bont were caught napping when a deep cross from Jason Owen was headed against the upright by Shaun Roberts. Roberts then gave the Beganifs a lifeline when calmly finishing after indecision in the Bontnewydd defence. Having scored once Waenfawr came close to adding a second when good work from Joe Evans found Meilir Povey unmarked on the far post but his drive could only rattle the post.
Half Time 2-1
Bontnewydd started brightly and Guto Evans was forced to produce a good save from a deflected Cai Penny Williams
strike, however it was Waen striker Shaun Roberts who brought the scores level running from midfield unmarked to unleash a curling drive that beat Sion Davies
The game ebbed and flowed with both sides attacking and Guto Evans made a good save before Bont felt they should have been awarded a penalty when Dion Davies
went down in the box after a tangle with the visiting centre back. Beganif Sion Jones then shaved the Bontnewydd post with a smart drive before a deep cross from Bont full back Dylan Price
was headed over the bar by the unchallenged Pleming from six yards out.
Pleming then went close once again with a rasping drive that cleared the Waenfawr cross bar but the experienced Beganifs then started to take control as the Bont midfield tired and several chances went begging, with both teams looking for the winner a smart fingertip save by Guto Evans looked to be the last action of the game only for Waenfawr left back Jason Owen to pop up on the edge of the Bont box and send a sensational left foot volley into the bottom corner of the home net.
Final Score 2-3
As in recent weeks the young Bontnewydd side matched their counterparts for a good hour of the game but sadly have little to show for their efforts. They do have the chance to quickly gain revenge with a visit to Waenfawr’s Aberforshaw ground the Saturday.
