06/04/2019 Hartridge Vs Dowlais Match Report

Hartridge 12pts. Dowlais 15pts.
This was a basement battle between two sides desperate for points, and it showed with some of the play both sides suffering from the tension.
Hartridge had the first  score on the board with a well worked try down the left wing which was well taken by their winger, converted by their no 10.
Dowlais replied just before halftime with a penalty by Sion Martin to make it 7-3 at the break to the home side. Dowlais now had it all to do and started off with a exellent try from a line out the Dowlais no 10 broke in field and found his centre Jack Chambers and with some smart passing with Luke Dudley the Dowlais center took the pass from his winger to score a much needed try, Sion Martin added the conversion.Dowlais now needed to hold onto their lead but it was short lived with Hartridge adding their second try to edge in front 12-10.
With time now running out Dowlais put on their two experienced forwards Chris Williams and Jamie Cross, and they they immediatley made their presence felt and shunted the home pack backwards at a rate of knots.
With the pack now on top Dowlais went for the winning score and from a forward surge Chris Williams was powered over to put Dowlais 3 points in front.
The game now coming to an end saw the home side camped on the Dowlais 5 meter line making it a nervy few minutes for the Dowlais supporters but some heroic defence saw Dowlais home and a very important 4 points.

Not at their best today Dowlais will have to show a great improvement if they are to trouble Blaenavon next Saturday.
