Two off as derby ends all square

Carmarthen Journal - - Midweek Sport -

HON­OURS ended even in the Welsh League divi­sion one derby as Am­man­ford Town and Cw­mam­man United fought out a 1-1 draw.

The New Year clash de­liv­ered an en­ter­tain­ing con­test be­tween two com­mit­ted sides, but they could not be sep­a­rated at the fi­nal whis­tle.

Goal­less at the in­ter­val, the game came to life in the se­cond half when Cwm’s Ryan Hur­low broke the dead­lock by us­ing his pace to take him clear of his mark­ers and he slot­ted the ball into the bot­tom cor­ner of the home net.

Am­man­ford got them­selves back into the game with a Liam Sa­muel equaliser as he picked up a loose ball and fired it into the back of the net.

Am­man­ford keeper Craig Mor­ris ul­ti­mately proved to be the hero for his side as he saved a penalty.

The home side were re­duced to 10 men when Dale Jones was sent off for two yel­low cards, while Brieg Matthews also saw red for the vis­i­tors.

Mid-ta­ble Am­man­ford have an­other home game on Satur­day when they wel­come Gwent side Goytre, while Cw­mam­man, who re­main well placed in sixth place, en­ter­tain bot­tom side Taffs Well.
