Cymric were made to pay for their lacklustre performance with Porthcawl impressing greatly in their comfortable victory over their hosts.
Both teams started with purpose but Porthcawl got to grips with the game much quicker than Cymric and took the lead on the quarter hour when a right wing cross was headed in by Adam Jones at the far post.
Cymric tried to play their way out of defence on several occasions but the Porthcawl forwards asserted a lot of pressure on them forcing mistakes.
However, Cymric did have some chances with Neil Thomas having an early strike well saved by the keeper and Huw Owen having another effort go just wide of the mark. Porthcawl’s pressure up front paid off with 2 minutes remaining in the half.
Jorge Crofts intercepted a pass from Alex Davies and he powered in to the box and rifled the ball home from 16 yards.
Porthcawl carried on where they left off and they put a lot of pressure on Cymric and restricted them to very few chances. Neil Thomas once again was denied by an excellent save and Osian Pritchard couldn’t find a teammate after an excellent run into the box.
Porthcawl were very dangerous, getting the ball wide and running at the Cymric defence on several occasions and if the final ball had been better they would have increased their score. They did however get a deserved third goal when some more sloppy play by Cymric saw them give the ball away in the middle third and the ball reached Hayden Lau on the edge of the area and he struck a sweet shot into the bottom right hand corner giving James Hendy no chance.
MOTM – Huw Owen
