Jays 3 Llangennech 4
Sunday 10th May 2009
Llangennech came from behind three times to beat top of the league Jays in Llangain, moving level on points but behind on goal difference with two games remaining.
Team: Martin Williams, Christian Williams, Nathan Phillips, Steffan Cook, Ian Morgan, Tom Harris, Alex Dakin, Darren Dickeson, Dean Williams, Gavin Williams, Dai Thomas. Sub: Curtis Roberts.
Jays took the lead after just six minutes when a long throw was flicked into the net by a Jays forward.
But the lead lasted only ten minutes with Dai Thomas providing the finishing touch to a fine Llangennech move of flowing football. Tom Harris provided the cross for Thomas to beat the keeper with a low shot.
Jays then went back into the lead after Llangennech gave the ball away in the middle of the park. A low through ball put the striker one on one with the keeper and he found the top corner of the net.
Llangennech did not lie down like most teams who have faced Jays this season and found themselves back level after half an hour. Tom Harris was fouled in the box and Gavin Williams beat the keeper from the penalty spot.
With the scores level at half time, Llangennech looked to take the game to Jays with the wind behind them in the second half but it was Jays who scored early on in the second half. Another breakdown in a Llangennech move saw Jays react quickest putting the striker in one-on-one again to score.
Llangennech then found a third equaliser of the game on the hour mark. A Tom Harris corner was met superbly at the front post by top scorer Gavin Williams who headed past the keeper.
Jays then suffered a lack of discipline losing a player to a second yellow card for a tackle on Nathan Phillips which looks like putting the full back out of the last two games.
With twenty minutes remaining Dai Thomas beat his man on the half way line before playing a one-two with Darren Dickeson who's ball put Thomas one-on-one with Jays' keeper with the home defence claiming offside. Thomas provided a neat finish and sent Llan into the lead for the first time in the match.
In the aftermath of the goal, Jays lost another player to a red card and Llangennech were able to hold on for a very important win. To win the championship, Llangennech now need to win their last two games and hope that Jays drop points against either Bancffosfelen or Penllergaer or both.
