Caernarfon 0 - Bethesda 12


Caernarfon's home league form continues to be a bone of contention after yielding yet again to a solid enough Bethesda side, thus relieving the Dol Ddafydd outfit of possible relegation woes for the time being.

On a fairly slippery surface and wet first half both sides were finding it difficult to string constructive plays together however Bethesda opted wisely to ensure some points on the board whenever the opportunity arrived.

By mid way through the first half Bethesda were six points to the good with two offside calls granting fullback Gethin Long relative straightforward conversions. After some twenty five minutes another three were added by Long for a not rolling away call at the point of breakdown.

Caernarfon nearly forced their way back into contention when a Michael Downey charge down nearly brought rewards, but the cover just got back in time to deny him a grounding. The first half was however brought to a close when Long slotted his fourth penalty to establish a twelve point cushion following another offside call.

Caernarfon rallied and cut the penalty count during the second half with captain Iolo Hughes working tirelessly to seek openings but Bethesda were more than a match with stronger ball carriers leading their charges. Four pack members, Paul Thomas, Rhys Williams, Daniel Ogwen and Llion Trefor were instrumental in giving Bethesda more go forward momentum throughout.

No further scores were forthcoming although everyone kept going to the end, with one supporter agreeing and adding 'kept going nowhere' as far as seeking openings were concerned.
