Close Encounter

Cefneithin 17 Aberaeron 18


Despite a somewhat low par performance, Aberaeron maintained their 100 per cent record with a hard and close win at Cefneithin, Conditions were not conducive to open rugby and this led to a number of handling errors in an error strewn contest. Aberaeron once again were indebted to their front eight who dominated their opponents but Cefneithin possess an useful backline who were eager to gobble up any opportunities and this led to a close encounter.Aberaeron powered their way over for their first try after 10mins with Aaron Lewis scoring under the posts, Sion Evans converting. Indiscretion gave Cefn the opportunity to reduce the deficit and 2 Richard Watts penalties cut the lead to 1 point.With half time approaching neat interplay between forwards and backs created an opportunity for impressive flanker Lewis to claim his second of the afternoon only for Watts to claim his third penalty leaving 3 points between the teams at the half way stage.

The second half continued in the same vein resulting in a comedy of errors from both teams and Aberaeron were to suffer a huge setback when a breakdown on the home line following a period of pressure gave the opportunity for Owen Lewis to evade several tackles to cross in the corner to a huge roar from the home support. Coach Justin Lloyd introduced several substitutes at this stage and it was one of the subs Aled Sweeney who stroked over a penalty to regain the lead. Watts hit back again with his fourth of the afternoon, but with another sub Gareth James impressing at the base of the scrum, the opportunity came for Sweeney to become the hero of the afternoon with his second success and a narrow victory to take home . It may be a case of out of jail but nevertheless another success which consolidates the top of the table position,
