Division Two West
Newcastle Emlyn 28 Amman United 13
Despite creating plenty of decent openings, Amman United squandered some good possession and ultimately went down to their third league defeat on the road.
The home side made the better start and scored a nice try to open the scoring.
Amman, who were missing lock Chris Rees from the engine room, were caught by a real sucker punch when just before the interval, from an Amman attack, the home side hit them on the break for a second score.
Outside-half Adrian Thomas kept his side in the hunt with the boot, and United did better as the match wore on.
But in chasing the game they inevitably left gaps for the well-drilled Emlyn to exploit.
Amman did make their chances count and grabbed a pushover try with Matthew Wrigley getting the touchdown.
Dean Williams also crossed for a second half try.
But the hosts’ third, scored midway through the second half effectively put the game beyond the visitors.
A disappointing defeat overall for the Reds, who slip to third in the table with four wins from seven.
They will hope to bounce back when they host Aberystwyth on Saturday in a game brought forward from its original date of December 21.
