PON­TY­CYMER .............. 7 PORTH­CAWL ............... 49

PON­TY­CYMER wel­comed Porth­cawl to Lawrence Park, for this en­counter.

It was the vis­i­tors who had too much fire-power be­hind the scrum, with a very sharp back line, while the for­wards were evenly matched up front.

The Seag­ulls had the best of the first half, fly­ing in four con­verted tries, mak­ing it 28-0 at half-time. To the fore for the Lawrence Park oufit in the first half were skip­per An­drew Har­ris and half backs Jonathan Parry and Ross Pearce.

Pon­ty­cymer started the sec­ond half the stronger, and soon were awarded a penalty try for their ef­forts, mak­ing it 28-7 on the score­board.

The Green & Am­bers then pressed the Porth­cawl line look­ing for an­other try, play­ing up to­wards the reser­voir end, but came away with noth­ing to show for their ef­forts, after an en­cour­ag­ing 10-minute spell.

The vis­i­tors then ran in an­other three con­verted tries, mak­ing sure they were the team go­ing into the hat for the third round draw next week at WRU head­quar­ters. In de­feat for Pon­ty­cymer none worked harder than flanker Scott Hamp­ton and cen­tre Kyle Gal­try.

On Satur­day Ponty- cymer travel to Cwrt Her­bert, where they face Neath Ath­letic.

Porth­cawl tries were scored by Jake Fur­ness (3), Gareth Rees (2), Jake Thomas and Alex Davies. Josh White kicked all seven con­ver­sions.

The Sea­weeds move on, still un­beaten, to meet old ri­vals Brid­gend Sports in a vi­tal league match, at the Band­stand Field on Satur­day.
