Carmarthenshire Football League Division One
CAERBRYN could not have asked for a better start as they make the most of life in Carmarthenshire Football League Division One.
The Towy Valley visitors raced to a three-goal lead before the interval thanks to some great possession play and excellent distribution.
It was the passing of wellorganised Caerbryn that split the Pontarddulais defence open time and again as Jason Hughes was put clear to score two quality goals early on.
A third arrived when David Roberts coolly scored a spot-kick and it was no more than the visitors deserved as they outplayed the hosts throughout the half to secure what appeared to be a comfortable lead at the interval.
But when the second half got under way it was clear that Pontarddulais had other ideas.
The second period was one way traffic as the hosts put immense pressure on the Caerbryn defence and reduced the deficit to a single score thanks to two wellearned goals.
Caerbryn had fewchances in the second half as they failed to live up to their early dominance and struggled to match Pontarddulais’ growing control.
The visitors did have one great opportunity late on but failed to convert the chance that would have put the game beyond doubt.
However, they hung on through a nervy final ten minutes to claim a hardearned victory.
Despite the tough second half, the win ensures Caerbryn find themselves in a comfortable position in their first season in Division One and the side continue to improve with each game.
On Saturday they host Killay (kick-off 2.30pm).
