Youth Overcome Conditions To Notch Hard Fought Win

Regrettably, due to the dismal early February weather causing havoc at Trebanos Park, this match had to be switched to the 4G pitch at Ysgol Bae Baglan. Conditions there were excellent underfoot but the game took place in a persistent drizzle and, with a strong wing blowing from one end of the pitch to the other, conditions that weren't conducive to the running rugby that Trebanos Youth like to play.

Trebanos played into the wind in the first half.

Trebanos conceded two early penalties which Bridgend Athletic used to establish a foothold deep in the home 22. The visitors won a lineout and set up a driving maul which Trebanos defended well.

Banos under pressure in their first 20 mins. Defended well but conceded a stream of penalties, many of which appeared kickable but BA chose to kick for the corner. Tackling good, one crunching tackle from centre Ryan Dew notable (probably best not to name him).

A try apiece for second row pairing Jay Earles and Jonah Moxley, both superbly converted by outside half Jordan Smith and a further thre points from Jordan's boot after a beautifully struck penalty from half way earned victory for Trebanos in a keenly fought match.

More details to follow.
