TYNEWYDD FC 4
INTER PENARTH 3 I
ON AN extremely windswept and blustery afternoon at the Butts, Tynny made it six Vale Soccer League wins on the bounce.
Starting the First Division clash better and trying their best to keep the ball on the deck, Tynny moved into a two-goal lead with a penalty from Ross Smith and a headed own goal after a cross from Mark McCarthy.
Penarth grabbed a goal back right on half time when a high ball caused havoc in the swirling wind.
Early in the second half, neat play from Lewis Union resulted in his cross being calmly volleyed in by Smith for his second, and the same player soon grabbed his hat-trick when he broke through and rounded the onrushing 'keeper.
The game should have been over then but, with 15 minutes to go, a few needless free kicks allowed Penarth to put a better reflection on the scoreline.
Tynny deserved all three points but made hard work of it in very awkward weather conditions.
Tynny man of the match was Ross Smith for his three-goal performance.
Squad: G Union, G Pycroft, N Haincock, J Clissett, J Brana, M McCarthy, M Hesp, A Colburn, Ll Union, L Union (c), R Smith, B Jarmain, J Shepherd, S Eveleigh and L Peterson.
