CADOXTON Barry completed a dramatic turnaround last weekend, beating visitors Aber Valley in a 3-2 win to maintain their unbeaten start.

With just ten minutes remaining, Cadoxton Barry found themselves trailing 2-1 and facing their first defeat of the season, and at that point they would probably have settled for a draw if only an equalizer could have been found.

But after Dawson did just that with only four minutes left on the clock, the greedy Sansome had thoughts for taking all three points. So when, in the 90th minute, he was nominated to take a free kick from 35 yards out and close to the left touch line, he decided to take a chance to nothing blast at goal.

With the 'keeper rendered totally unsighted by the mass of players clustering in his six-yard box, the ball flew into the back of the net for one of the best set piece goals ever seen at Bryn-Y-Don.

Cadoxton had looked likely to take the lead early on in the game, after Morgan was brought down as he ran into the box, but Dawson sliced the resulting spot kick to shudder the right hand post.

Fifteen minutes in Aber were awarded a free kick which launched their first serious attack. That was cleared for a corner which caused a little consternation in the CB ranks before it was cleared. Lifted by this, Aber came more and more into the game as CB started to give away a series of unnecessary free kicks.

Having ridden the storm however, CB went forward to earn a corner which was curled in from the left by Sansome to find the head of the majestically rising Constant, and from there, the back of the net.

As half time approached CB found themselves under prolonged pressure for the first time in the match, which continued in the early stages of the second half.

With the visitors now seeing plenty of possession an Aber equaliser looked a distinct possibility, and Cadoxton's fears were soon realised, conceding a penalty which was confidently put away to level the scores.

Sansome took the ball from the re-start to make progress down the left and draw the 'keeper. He crossed to Cleary whose shot went high above an unguarded net. And CB paid for this miss as they went behind in the 63rd minute as an Aber ball out to the right was gathered by an unmarked winger to charge in on goal and fire home with an excellent rising drive.

This setback prompted CB into becoming the dominant force one more, but the visitors defended well and the chances of CB getting anything out of the game were beginning to look slim.

Aber concentrated on marking goal-maker Morgan out of the game, but they were unable to shackle him for long and with just five minutes left, he broke free to make a pin point cross to Dawson, just beyond the far post. And he rounded his marker to slot home from close range.

There were audible sighs of relief as it looked as though at least a point had been salvaged from the rubble. But with manager Davie urging the side to get on with things, CB were awarded the free kick as the final seconds were ticking from which Sansome was able to rifle home the winner.

Next Saturday Cadoxton Barry are back on the road, away to struggling North Cornelly in a 2.30pm kick off.
