25/01/2020 Bedlinog Vs Dowlais Match Report

BEDLINOG  20pts.DOWLAIS 10 pts.
Dowlais opened the scoring with a well worked try , Morgan Powell split the home defence to link up with Marcus Clyne who touched down in the corner against his old club , Steve Thomas converted from a tight angle.
Dowlais were not taking a backward step in this local derby against a very strong Bedlinog side.
Bedlinog added a penalty to reduce the lead and with half time approaching scored a try from a driving line out, a missed Dowlais penalty could have made it 10-10 at halftime.
The second half saw the heavy Bedlinog pack batter away at the Dowlais line but the Dowlais defenders tackled bravely, but ran out of defenders allowing Bedlinog to cross in the corner. A Steve James penalty for Dowlais made it 17-10 to the home side , and a losing bonus point insight for Dowlais , this was taken away by a late penalty by Bedlinog.
On reflection this was a much improved display by Dowlais and a credit to their committment, and on another day would have resulted in a win with the 4 missed penalties taken into account.

Special mention must be made of the three youngsters in the side playing their first derby match against old rivals Bedlinog, Morgan Powell, Morgan Thomas and Shane Chambers all three were voted man of the match , justifiable so.
