Trebanos 30 Pencoed 24 Fifth placed Trebanos opened the scoring in this Division 1 West Central match with a try at the posts from No8 Sean Hopkins, converted by outside half Kris Jones. The vision of Pencoed scrum half Kyle Barrett soon brought Pencoed level, a clever short kick down the blindside saw wing Rhys Clarke snatch up the ball and his inside pass found Rhys Bargery, the flanker brushing aside a tackle to race away from 35 metres to score, Adam Williams converting to bring the match level at 7-7. Unfortunately for Pencoed the opening quarter was punctuated by a plethora of penalties, no fewer than nine conceded in a fifteen minute spell. The home side then raced into a 27-7 lead with a brace of tries from loose head prop Alun Dew and a second from Hopkins, Jones adding a conversion and penalty goal. Approaching the interval Pencoed got a well deserved penalty try converted by Williams to go in at the break 27-14. A second penalty try early in the half converted by Williams brought Pencoed back into the match at 27-21 before Jones added a penalty. Other than the 30-21 scoreline there was nothing between the sides with play to and fro. Pencoed proceeded to finish the match strongly with Rhys Thomas kicking a penalty goal to secure a priceless losing bonus point, the home side resorting to passive scrums late on to negate a possible Pencoed avenue to victory ! Pencoed will reflect on a match which could have been won, their second half effort almost clawing back the early match deficit. On Saturday Pencoed host Kenfig Hill at the Recreation Ground, 2.30 k.o. Match Report: T.R. Match Photo's by Julie Hancock.
