3 Heol y Cyw away

Heol y Cyw 11 v 32 Maesteg Celtic

Maesteg Celtic visited Heol y Cyw for their fourth away game of the season. Conditions were good to begin with but soon deteriorated with the arrival of the rain.  Heol y Cyw used their bigger aggressive pack, which drove constantly at the Celtic defence, but they could not establish any dominance over the visitors. The Celtic pack stood firm against a stampede of charging bull like forwards. The Celtic front five of Mark Wilkins, Ashley Poole, Mathew Phillips, Kieran Power and Alex Jones were heroic in their defence while the back row of, Man of the Match, Peter Kehoe, Jonathan Davies and Captain Oliver Petty were tireless at the breakdown to prevent their opponents winning quick ball.

            Celtic opened the scoring with a penalty by outside half Scott Sainsbury. They went further ahead when hooker Ashley Poole harassed the home defence and earned a penalty. Alex Jones won the ball from the ensuing lineout and scrum half Leon Evans set the three quarters going. A long miss pass by centre Kristian Jenkins found full back Scot James who put wing Ieuan Morris over in the corner.

            Heol y Cyw closed the gap with a penalty before Celtics responded with another try. A three quarter move allowed Centre Lee Arthur to kick behind the home defence and wing Liam Healy followed up and forced the defence to concede a penalty. Celtic chose a scrum and number eight Oliver Petty crossed for a touchdown. The half ended with a try by the home team.

            Celtic scored two more tries in the second half. The first came after they pounded the home try line and number eight Jonathan Davies touched down from a push over scrum. The second came as a result of a powerful drive by prop Nathan Jenkins which led to a ruck near the try line from which scrum half Liam Healy sneaked over in the corner.
