Gwaun cae Gurwen 52 Melyn United 59

The Waun played host to Melyn United of Neath on Saturday and after five ends found themselves 18–12 ahead.

But the Melyn fought back to narrow the lead to just 33–30 at the tea interval after ten ends.

Unfortunately for the Waun the break was to prove costly as the visitors outscored them by 11 shots to one on the eleventh end and from that point on took control of the game.

The visitors had established a 59–52 on 15 ends and ran out worthy winners by 82–70 at the close of play.

The result saw Melyn pick up 10 points to the Waun’s four.

Next week the Waun travel to the Gnoll club of Neath.
