Mumbles Rangers 2 Cwmamman Utd 2

In front of a healthy crowd of more than 250 down at Swansea Bay on the University pitch, the two sides fought out a thrilling 2-2 draw.

With Mumbles in second place in the Ardal West League, Cwm knew they would have to be at their best and to be fair it was Cwm who started on the attack and maintained it for pretty much most of the match.

Cwm had a number of early free kicks around the Mumbles box and Charlie Davies saw one of his fizz just over the bar.

With Ross Morgan, Davies and Kyle Ashford dominating the middle of the park Cwm kept pressing and Goodwin in the Mumbles goal made some excellent saves from Keiran Richards and Gwion Howell. 

Calem Rees then almost opened the scoring when his goalbound shot was cleared in a goalmouth scramble.

The experienced Mumbles attack was always likely to be a threat though and Kai Rees made a great save from a James Loveridge shot just before half time.

Cwm came out second half and kept up the momentum with their excellent passing and ball winning.

Callum Dougal and Grant Rees were immense at the heart of the defence while Leon Croucher and Cory Saunders were great launch pads for the Cwm attacks.

Cwm finally took the lead in the 71st minute when a Ross Morgan long range shot beat the stranded Goodwin.

Cwm seemed to be in control but in three hectic minutes, two lightening Mumbles breaks saw Ricky Kerr fire high into the net from the edge of the box while a Loveridge run and pass saw Elliot Smith tap home in the 81st minute.

Cwm heads did not drop and they went straight back at Mumbles and in the 87th min a dropped cross by the keeper saw Sion Dfaydd Williams equalise.

An incredible 13 minutes of additional time then saw Cwm looking for the winner with at least four great opportunities just not falling the right way and it finally ended all square.

An entertaining match that Cwm would feel disappointed not to have won but very pleased with the performance.

On Saturday Cwm are home to Dinas Powys at 2.30pm with a stand naming ceremony at 2pm in honour of Raymond Jones and Graham Jones two much loved but sadly passed heroes of the club.
