Under 9's In Eight Goal Thriller

Sunday 21st November 2010

Llangennech under 9's played their part in a very entertaining game at Pontwyn against Dafen.

Squad:  Nicky Frampton, Jake Westlake, Tyler Hillier, Dafydd Cross, Jack Williams, Joshua Williams, Tomos Williams, Ceri Rees.

In an end to end encounter, Dafen scored the only goal of the first quarter with a shot from close range. The second half ended goal less thanks to some excellent defending and goalkeeping with Llan's Tomos Williams brave in coming off his line.  Tyler Hillier came closest for Llan, his effort hitting the post.

At the start of the third quarter Llan went 2-0 down through an own goal as an attempted clearance hit another defender and bounced over the line.  But that sparked Llan into life and Jack Williams scored twice rounding off superb footballing moves and Joshua Williams put Llan into the lead going into the final quarter.

Llangennech continued to attack in the final period of the game but were caught out at the back as Dafen scored twice on the break to give a final score of 5-3.

Both teams contributed to an excellent game of football which was a joy to watch.  Well done all.
