Foel Come Back To Beat Llan Again

Friday 5th August 2011

Felinfoel came from a goal down to win 2-1 at Llangennech Park in Friday night's Star Cup Group match.  It's the second time in eight months that Foel have come from behind to beat Llan.

Llangennech:  Ross Robinson, Tom Dakin, Steffan Cook, Ian Morgan, Christian Williams, Darren Dickeson, Niall Davies, Jonathan Dakin, Tom Harris, Lee Harriman, Dai Thomas.  Subs: Chris Hickey, Emir Hakman, Martin Williams.

Llangennech took the lead after half an hour through Dai Thomas.  The striker's persistence paid off when he capitalised on some hesitant defending to poke the ball home.

The game turned on a sending off in the second half of the match.  Chasing a loose ball, Tom Harris made contact with the outstretched legs of the Foel defender with both feet off the ground.  There were no complaints when the red card was brandished.  Thankfully, the defender was able to continue.

Foel equalised through a headed goal and capitalised on a mistake at the back to take the lead shortly after.

There were chances for Llan to level the scores but Foel held out to secure the win.

It seems likely that Llan must now take maximum points from the two remaining games to stand a chance of progressing to the quarter finals.
