Maesteg Celtic 2nds 27 v 12 Maesteg Quins

Maesteg Celtic 2nds met local rivals Maesteg Quins at Garth Park for their final game of the season. The game was played in good spirit with both teams spreading the ball at every opportunity.

Quins opened the scoring with a well-executed three-quarter move. Their forwards increased the lead after their scrum caused chaos in the Celtic defence and they crashed over for a touch-down.  Celtic closed the gap when prop Dale Cook passed to hooker Deri Lloyd who found fullback James jones in support. Flanker Neil Sainsbury arrived at pace and beat the defence to score in the corner. They closed the gap even further, as a result of great inter-passing by the forwards which led to second row Nathan Jenkins rampaging down the middle only to be hauled down short. Scrum half Nathan Edwards spun the ball to centre Gavin Joseph on the blind side and hooker Deri Lloyd ran in the try.

Celtic took the lead in the second half when they took a quick penalty and outside half Nathan Healey drew the defence before putting man of the match Deri Lloyd over for his second. Celtics fourth try came when flanker Nathan Adams won a lineout in the visitors 22 and Deri Lloyd took the ball through the defence. The Quins defence over anticipated the next move and left a gap for Nathan Edwards to sprint through and score. The game concluded when centre Neil Arthur made a break on half way and passed to James Jones who moved it on to fullback Scott Wilkins who beat three defenders before touching down under the posts. James jones converted.
