Gaer­wen make Llan pay the penalty

Bangor Mail - - SPORT -

MISSED chances cost Llannerchymedd dear as they slumped to a ninth suc­ces­sive home de­feat in Welsh Al­liance Divi­sion Two last week­end.

Gaer­wen ran out 2-0 win­ners at Tan Parc, a re­sult which left Llan dis­ap­pointed as they had won 2-1 at Lôn Groes at the turn of the year and en­tered last Satur­day’s return qui­etly con­fi­dent of com­plet­ing a dou­ble.

Medd went into the game with a squad of only 13 after late with­drawals due to ill­ness and fam­ily com­mit­ments.

Good chances were cre­ated at both ends with Llan gain­ing mo­men­tum and carv­ing out some great op­por­tu­ni­ties to take the lead.

Iwan Richard Wil­liams’ left-footed strike was bound for the bot­tom cor­ner, only for keeper Gwyn­daf Owen to make a fan­tas­tic right-hand save.

Jerome Sil­lence crossed from the right side across the face of the goal and An­drew Roberts just failed to get a touch on the ball with the net at his mercy.

The sec­ond half be­gan with Llan forced into a change, cap­tain Cal­lum McCor­mack go­ing off with an in­jury to be re­placed with Liam Owen.

With the weather caus­ing havoc, both teams kept try­ing to play good foot­ball in a tight af­fair.

The vis­i­tors found the net. A cross came in from the right and there was Gaer­wen’s top-scorer Liam Mor­ris to pounce to make it 1-0.

After this, Gaer­wen were find­ing more rhythm in their game and gain­ing more con­fi­dence. Llan were los­ing shape and it played into the away side’s hands.

Fif­teen min­utes from time Gaer­wen were awarded a penalty, with Liam Owen ad­judged to have fouled Shaun Mon­u­ment in the box.

Up stepped cap­tain Gethin Davies to net the de­ci­sive sec­ond goal.
