Or­gan hits right note in loss

Llanelli Star - - Sport -

A SPIR­ITED per­for­mance by Car­marthen Men’s Hockey Club saw them de­feated 6-1 by Aberys­t­wyth Univer­sity.

A fast and fu­ri­ous open­ing 15 min­utes pro­vided chances for both teams, with Car­marthen stag­ing a num­ber of coun­ter­at­tacks and go­ing close when cap­tain Osian Evans lobbed the keeper, only to see his ef­fort sail just wide.

Aberys­t­wyth made the most of their let-off by bag­ging three goals be­fore the in­ter­val, de­spite some out­stand­ing saves from young keeper Llew Mor­gan.

The sec­ond half mir­rored the first in many ways, with Car­marthen’s for­wards look­ing to break at speed and get in be­hind a dis­ci­plined Aberys­t­wyth de­fence.

This half proved more fruit­ful for Car­marthen, with for­ward Alis­ter Tipuric pay­ing a killer ball to Rho­dri Or­gan, who slot­ted home from a seem­ingly im­pos­si­ble an­gle.

But de­spite cre­at­ing more chances, Aberys­t­wyth re­gained their com­po­sure to score three more be­fore the fi­nal whis­tle.
