Carmarthenshire League Division One
CAERBRYN opened their Division One season with a derby against Tumble that proved feisty at times.
From the start Caerbryn took the game to the visitors and created some early chances without finding the net.
Tumble, having come down from the Premier League, were difficult to break down and it was the visitors who opened the scoring in the 20th minute.
Tumble continued attacking and had it not been for some brave goalkeeping by Dylan Thomas they could have been further ahead.
Caerbryn eventually settled and began controlling the midfield through David Roberts and Keith Dainton, whose supply to the wings put Tumble on the back foot.
But Tumble broke and furthered their lead to give themselves a 2-0 advantage with 15 minutes to the break.
Caerbryn had to make amends and in the last minutes before the interval proved themselves worthy of their Division One place.
Justin Thomas claimed a well-taken goal after the Tumble goalkeeper failed to collect a cross and then, just before the break, Dainton collected the ball just outside the box and beat the ’keeper with a perfectly placed shot into the far left corner to level.
After the interval Caerbryn upped the gears and kept the visitors on the back foot, creating chance after chance.
Buit the goal failed tomaterialise, even at the death, when Jason Hughes was denied by the Tumble ’keeper with an excellent save.
Caerbryn travel Llansteffan on September (6.15pm KO) and visit Troestre on Saturday (2.30pm KO).
