Bonus point suc­cess keeps Nant Conwy fly­ing high at sum­mit

North Wales Weekly News - - COMMUNITY EVENTS -

NANT Conwy ex­tended their lead at the top of Di­vi­sion One North with a com­pre­hen­sive 40-13 vic­tory at Dol­gel­lau, gain­ing their third bonus point of the sea­son into the bar­gain.

In the open­ing ex­changes, Dol opened the scor­ing when No8 Dy­lan Llewellyn in­ter­cepted a Nant pass to score un­der the posts with Ger­wyn Thomas slot­ting over the con­ver­sion.

Within min­utes Nant replied with a fine try by Car­wyn Davies, the first of three for the young winger on the af­ter­noon, a suc­cess­ful con­ver­sion by Del­wyn Jones bring­ing the scores level.

Two penal­ties were awarded to Dol­gel­lau within min­utes of each other and Thomas put over both to make it 13-7.

Un­de­terred, the visi­tors stuck to their game plan and hav­ing a pur­ple patch be­fore half time scored a fur­ther three tries, one each by Sion Pringle, Robert Parry and Davies, Del­wyn Jones con­vert­ing all three to make it 28-13.

In the sec­ond half, de­spite heroic Dol­gel­lau at­tack­ing they were un­able to breach the Nant Conwy’s de­fence and as the team tired, the visi­tors cap­i­talised by scor­ing a fur­ther two tries through Davies and Car­wyn El­lis.

Nant face a tough test this Satur­day when they en­ter­tain third-placed Llan­dudno at Pant Carw (1.30pm).

The Conwy Val­ley side won both league clashes against Tudno last sea­son.

Nant tri­umphed 17-3 in an end-of-sea­son clash at Maesdu Road, but the lack of a bonus point ended the Pant Carw club’s ti­tle hopes.

Last De­cem­ber, Nant saw off their lo­cal ri­vals 26-10 at Tre­friw.

Nant fin­ished sec­ond last sea­son and Llan­dudno were fifth.
