Y Mellt ar y brig ar ol Rownd 1 CSGT12 / Y Mellt at the top after Round 1 CSGT12
New boys, Y Mellt (The Lightening) stormed into an early lead by beating No Dropped Balls 13 scores to 2 on the opening night of Cyffwrdd Sir Gâr Touch 2012 (CSGT12).
Y Mellt, sporting their natty new kit (see picture above), are new to Touch, but showed plenty of skill, movement off the ball and pace to win their first game. In their next game, Y Mellt face local rivals, Hyrddod yr Hendy, which could prove to be a very interesting game.
Elsewhere, reigning champions (2010 and 2011) Orangutans were too much for new boys Hyrddod yr Hendy, eventually running out winners by 7 – 4. Gower Dragons beat Y Genhedlaeth Nesaf, 6 – 3 in a closer game than the scoreline suggests, Touch experience and tactical knowledge of the game was the only difference between the teams.
Once Were Athletic beat another new team, Charlie’s Angels, 11 – 1 and in the final game of the evening, Friendly Rivals were beaten 7 – 2 by Lookilikies.
Another great night of Touch in the evening sun at Ysgol Y Strade and we’re looking forward to next week!
