20/10/2018 Blaenavon Vs Dowlais Match Report

Dowlais never appeared in any trouble  during the first half and indeed should have gone in holding a healthy lead, but a couple of tries were butchered inexplicably.
The half was turned on its head with 5minutes remaining the Dowlais captain was binned for a high tackle, and the home side took advantage with two quick tries after some woeful Dowlais defending  to make the half time score 14-0 to Blaenavon.
Dowlais started the second half in a different frame of mind and scored two exellent tries through Jack Chambers and Nathan Pritchard with one conversion from Steve James.
It looked as if another Dowlais score would be enough for a win, but Blaenavon just about held on.
Then with the game in its final minutes the Dowlais flanker was yellow carded and once again Blaenavon took advantage and scored two simply tries ,the score line did not reflect on the effort put in by the visitors.
So 4 tries was scored  by Blaenavon , two at the end of each half when Dowlais were down to 14 men,this should never have happened.

Saturday sees Dowlais in Cup action home to Bridgend Athletic K.O. 2.30 let us hope for better luck this Saturday.
