First win of 2018

Blaenau Ffestiniog 1-3 Gaerwen

Last Saturday (13th January) we travelled to Gwynedd side Blaenau Ffestiniog for a Welsh Alliance Division Two fixture. Both Blaenau and Gaerwen welcomed 2018 in with a defeat last weekend therefore both sides were keen to get 3 vital points on the board.

The away side started the game very well, keeping possession for large majority of the opening 30 minutes with patient build up play. However, the closest either side came to opening the scoring in the first 15 minutes of the game was the home side. A quick counter attack saw the Ffestiniog striker work himself a yard and unleash a shot, the strike was deflected on to the bar and gratefully into Gwyndaf Owen's hands.

Liam Morris latched on to an excellent through ball on 25 minutes and poked the ball past the keeper, who was the last man, cynically brought Morris down on the edge of the box. The referee duly awarded Gaerwen the free kick but no further punishment was given to the Ffestiniog goalkeeper. Dylan Williams stepped up to take the set-piece, his low drive was well saved but Connor Gordon was the first to react to sweep the ball home with a good close range finish. Just 10 minutes later the visitors doubled their lead through top-scorer Liam Morris. A long through ball by Lee Jones was fumbled by the on-rushing Ffestiniog goalkeeper, Morris finished brilliantly from a tight angle that was just outside the box. 0-2 h/t.

The home -side came out determined in the second half, that along with Gaerwen's lackluster start meant Blaenau started to creep back into the game. The Gwynedd side looked dangerous all day at set-pieces and their breakthrough came from that. Gaerwen failed to get good distance on their clearances from a corner and Llion Vaughan was harshly adjudged to have brought down a Blaenau Ffestiniog player in the box - penalty.

The Blaenau skipper cooly finished from the spot despite Gwyndaf Owen getting finger tips to the strike. Gaerwen's reaction was almost immediate. Morris again causing problems to the home sides back-line. Morris latched on to a fantastic through ball and was brought down by the Blaenau Ffestiniog goalkeeper as he rounded him, penalty and yellow card. The Gaerwen striker got himself up and made no mistake from the spot to score his 15th of the campaign.

Gaerwen successfully managed the last 15 minutes of the game and came close on several occasions to score a 4th but the referee drew the game to a close with the final score 1-3.
