Tynewydd 3-1 Masons
Tynewydd got their second win of the season, their first since opening day, with a 3-1 win over Masons Moving Group. Having been promoted to the top division for the first time, Tynewydd always knew they’d find things tougher than last season and combined with numerous injuries and some heavy defeats things have proved that way. Most of the lads knew that mid table would be deemed success and only being 3 points off that with a few games in hand show things arent maybe as bad as first thought.
Knowing that Masons hadn’t won a game all season, Tynny knew this was an ideal game to claim all 3 points but a scrappy first half with few chances probably confirmed why both teams are where they are. Tynny started the 2nd half with much more impetuous and were soon in the lead after a lofted ball in from George Pycroft was turned into the Mason’s net by one of their center backs. The lead wasn’t to last long after some neat play from the Mason’s front 3 resulted in the left winger free at the back with an easy nod in to make it 1-1.
The home side were straight back on the front foot though and creating chacnes looking to regain the lead, which they managed to do in the 75th minute when a through ball found Mark McCarthy one on one with the onrushing keeper and McCarthy managed to get their first to prod home to make it 2-1.
One of the more humorous moments of the game when the 2 opposing Eveleigh brothers clashed in the box leaving younger brother Steven on the floor after Paul “slipped” into him, a trait Paul has used for numerous years now!
Leon Butler came on to make his Tynny debut and sure things up in the middle of the park but it was his central midfield partner who sealed the victory. Gareth “Skinny” Richards recieved the ball on the edge of the 18 yard box and glided in field beating 2 players with ease before calmly curling the ball into the far corner Kakaesque style to seal all 3 points for the Tynny and guarentee himself Man of the Match honours.
