PENY­BONT .................... 0 TAFFS WELL ................. 2

PENY­BONT failed to hold high-fly­ing Taffs Well dur­ing an or­di­nary en­counter last Sun­day at the Kymco Sta­dium, writes Tony Poole.

Two first-half goals al­lowed the Rhiw D’dar side to head out of the Brid­gend su­per club with the points.

How­ever, it was vis­it­ing goal­keeper Lewis Tyler who was busier dur­ing the open­ing ex­changes.

And it was against the run of play when Dy­lan Amin shot the Well men into a 19th-minute lead.

The turn­ing point came two min­utes later when Bont cap­tain Evan Den­scombe saw a hot-shot clip the cross bar – and stay out.

A goal at this junc­ture might well have made a dif­fer­ence, and the vis­i­tors made a strong re­sponse.

On the money Evan Penny in the home goal tipped over the cross bar a shot from Mar­cus Moses to keep it at 1-0.

But Taffs Well did dou­ble the lead in the 29th minute when a shot de­flected off Thomas An­thony, and drifted past help­less Penny.

Amin shot wide in the ap­proach to half time, and a sim­i­lar trend un­folded dur­ing the sec­ond pe­riod.

Louis An­gove nearly opened up a three-goal buf­fer on 71 min­utes, but his spec­tac­u­lar effort re­sulted in an equally splen­did Penny save.

Owain Hop­kins did go close for Bont in the 89th minute and dur­ing time added on for stop­pages, penny-wise Penny pulled off an­other su­perb save – this time deny­ing Cameron Ritchie.

Peny­bont Youth are next in ac­tion on Mon­day night against Gar­den Vil­lage at Stafford Com­mon.
