Division Four South West
Bridgend Sports 33 Cwmgors 39
Early Division Four South West leaders Cwmgors made their first-ever visit to Bridgend Sports, and maintained their hundred-percent winning record with a deserved victory in a high-scoring battle.
The victory, against a very handy side, was all the more satisfying since a disrupted Cwm were missing influential centre Mike Hodges and as many as nine regulars due to injuries and a wedding.
But with a strong squad to call from, the Cherries mixed and matched to good effect.
Steff Rees again pulled the strings for the visitors, dictating play with his accurate kicking game.
Sports opened the scoring with an early converted try, but Cwm hit back with a well-worked try from man of the match prop Ethan Price.
Rees kept the scoreboard ticking along, converting the touchdown before adding a penalty.
The home side retaliated with a second try, before the see-saw swung again and flanker Darrel John crashed over to regain the Cherries’ lead.
Rees’ conversion and penalty gave Cwm a slender 20-19 advantage at half-time with Sports notching a third try late on.
Second-row Rob Clive went over for a third converted Cwmgors try early in the second half to take his side two scores clear and Rees’ metronome kicking kept the visitors’ noses in front with another brace of penalties, but back roared Sports though with a try.
The hosts were awarded a penalty-try to tie the scores at 33-33 with 15 minutes remaining.
Cwmgors kept up the momentum and their pressure was rewarded as they forced the home side to concede a number of penalties.
Rees made no mistake, sending over another two to take his tally to 24 for the day and wrap up the points for the visitors.
Cwmgors visit Vardre on Saturday.
