Bala U14s 12-12 Welshpool U14s
U14s continue their unbeaten start to the season
Welshpool's Under 14s continued their unbeaten start to the season with three wins and one draw in Bala.
Ben Owen-Smith was the star of a 19-0 victory over Dolgellau, with the powerful prop/second row crossing for two tries. Arthur Powell matched this in the second game of the day, as the team came as close as they have ever come to beating Bala on their own turf, drawing 12-12, with the home side drawing level with the final play of the game after numerous penalties had been given their way.
In their third game of the day, the team took on Bro Ffestiniog, and after a slow start, Welshpool took control of the game and claimed their first ever win over Bro by 12-0.
In their final game of the day, they met local rivals Newtown. Newtown began the game well and took a 5-0 lead, but Welshpool battled back to draw level with a try of their own. They took the lead with their second try of the game, but found themselves under pressure for the final minutes of the game, with Newtown pressing hard at their line. The defence held firm, and a 10-5 victory was achieved.
