After a first half where Cwmamman dominated play and created several chances Penlan showed why they have been West Wales Premier League champions for the last two seasons  by taking virtually their only two opportunities in the half to go in at the interval with a two goal lead.

In front of a good crowd of just under 200 Cwm started extremely positively with Mason Davies and Jackson Brereton launching several attacks from midfield while the Smith brothers Elliot and Taylor were finding space and opportunities.

A few clear chances saw the shots at goal fired over while the post and the upright also  came to Penlan’s rescue.  Marcus Collins in the Penlan goal was also in form as he stopped two Cwm attempts with great saves from Elliot Smith and Brieg Matthews.

Then in the 25th min with a rare incursion into the Cwm box Penlan’s Luke Dalling saw a cross half cleared but played back in and he turned it in for 1-0.

Cwm continued to play well with Charlie Davies and Iestyn Evans strong at the back while Nathan Wickham and Harrison Thomas worked hard supporting attacks.

Penlan though were waiting to pounce and in the 40th min a long ball found the winger who put Theo Waters through and he calmly slotted the ball past the oncoming Callum Andrews.

Unlucky for Cwm after a strong first half display but the second half was a different affair with Penlan more in control of the game. A few opportunities came their way and Andrews in goal held strong until the 65th min when Theo Waters got his second and Penlan’s third with a superb free kick from the edge of the box that was perfectly placed in the top right hand corner.  

Cwm replaced debutant attacker Nino Aguilar with midfielder Keena Hinds and had a good last 15 mins as they pressed for a consolation but to no avail.

A case of what could have been if only Cwm had taken their chances early on but overall  a deserved win for Penlan.

Next Sat they do it all again away at Penlan 2pm in the Macron Division League Cup.
