Young­sters shine as Quins claim derby en­counter

Carmarthen Journal - - Sport -

CAR­MARTHEN Quins Un­der-9s beat Car­marthen Ath­letic by 14 tries to eight in a fine derby en­counter.

Quins cap­tain Fin Robin­son won the toss and it wasn’t long be­fore the ball was moved through quick hands to Macs Hast­ings, who stepped his way past the cover for his first try of the day.

The Ath­letic were quick to counter and Sara showed real strength against a com­mit­ted de­fence. But the Quins pounced on a loose ball and made their way up­field for a sec­ond score.

But the Ath­letic con­jured up a try of their own by tak­ing the di­rect route and some de­light­ful off­loads by Llion, Iwan and Arthur re­sulted in a try at the cor­ner.

Next on the score­sheet for Quins was Ioan James, whose mazy run­ning caused all sorts of prob­lems. And fol­low­ing the restart great aware­ness by El­liw Wil­liams saw her pass to Rhys Evans, who crossed out wide.

The Ath­letic con­tin­ued to put up stern re­sis­tance, with Oliver and Dom mak­ing ground along with Harri and Zac. And in de­fence Macs, Daniel and Efan tack­led su­perbly.

But the Quins re­mained in the as­cen­dancy with Matthew Stir­ling, Louie Thomas and Cal­lum Scott play­ing star­ring roles.

Sion Jones used his bul­lock­ing runs to add to the Quins try tally, as­sisted by Lloyd Thomas, Celt Evans and Lu­cas Lewis.

The Quins Un­der-9s would like to thank their spon­sors Well Drilling, Mike and Sue Evans, the Blue Boar, the New Stag’s Head and Mor­gan Elis Solic­i­tors. all NORTH Teifi Pool League spon­sored by Haver­ford­west Coins stand­ings: Cil­gwyn A 33pts, Glanyra­fon 33, Cross Hands A 32, Plough 31, Kings Arms 29, Gwarce­fel B 26, Gwarce­fel A 23, Ll­wyn­dafydd 22, Cil­gwyn B 22, Cross Hands B 20.
