Bethesda 14 - Caernarfon 10

At last, Bethesda secured their first win of the season by beating Caernarfon at Dôl Ddafydd.

The home side controlled most of the territory and possession but the final score did not reflect this.

Caernarfon took the lead after 3 minutes play through a penalty goal but Bethesda drew level from a Gethin Long penalty kick after 10 minutes.

Long looked dangerous throughout the match gaining good ground from his side-stepping play and his kicks.

With the Bethesda forwards in charge and the home halfbacks working well, wing Gwion Williams scored a try following a period of pressure. Long’s conversion kick narrowly failed.

Both sets of supporters were well  entertained as their teams endeavoured to run the ball on most occasions and the half finished with another Long penalty kick giving the home side an 11 points to 3 lead.

Bethesda's dominance continued in the second period with Long slotting over another penalty kick after 7 minutes.

The Caernarfon players hardly got out of their own half until a shock happening after half an hour’s play. With Bethesda pressing on the visitor’s try line, the Caernarfon full back intercepted what looked like a scoring pass.

He ran the length of the pitch to score a fine try in the corner before kicking the conversion making the score 14 points to 10 and making it an anxious last 10 minutes for the home supporters.

However, the home forwards managed to keep ball for the rest of the match to secure a narrow but deserved victory.
