Caernarfon 18 v Llandudno 29

After a break of one week,the Goats in there second match of the new season gained a notable away win at Caernarfon. They took the lead just after ten minutes of play,when from pressure inside of the home side half they were awarded a penalty which was converted by Ryan Pike, and it was the man himself Pike that from a movement involving forwards and backs,that he crossed the try line for a touch down,which he also converted. The goats had the better of this first half,and should have crossed for more try scoring points,but failed to allow the ball to be released along the back line when they had a number of over laps. The Goats were caught offside just before half time,which allowed the home to put three points on the board,with a conversion by Aled Jones. The second period of play saw the Goats settling down into a combined team effort,with the forwards setting up a platform which provided the backs with good ball,and it was from a set scrum near the home side try line that Ed Weston crashed over just outside of the posts,with the extra two points being added by Pike with the conversion. The Cofis"s responded with a penalty conversion by Aled Jones shortly afterwards. The Goats still held the upper hand in proceedings with play being kept inside of the homeside half,and the pressure told with there defence being breached with a try by Byron Davies. The Cofis"s came back at the Goats when from a quickly taken penalty from just inside of the Goats twenty two area,that Gareth Patchett crossed the try line to touch down,which Aled Jones converted. The Goats now need to settle down and secure maximum points from this way encounter,and this they did,when from within there own half that play was taken up to the Cofis"s try line with former Captain Morgan Owen touching down for there final try of the match,with the reliable boot of Ryan Pike slotting the conversion between the posts. The Cofis"s did however in the final minutes of play managed to score a try by Daffyd Lloyd.   Match Report by Howie. Next Saturday at home against Bethesda. KO 2.30.
