Gower Dragons victorious in the top of the table clash against previously unbeaten, Orangutans!
Gower Dragons end Orangtuans three year unbeaten run to top the CSGT12 table for the first time in a very closely-fought 3-2 win. As the results suggest, this was a close game and quite a fiery encounter with both teams determined not lose their unbeaten records without a fight. But it was the Dragons, with their greater experience of Touch and a number of players who have represented Wales at international level, that just edged to victory. Some poor discipline from the Orangutans did not help their cause. The Dragons play third placed Y Mellt in this weeks games, so it will be interesting to see if the unbeaten run continues.
Elsewhere, Y Mellt cruised to a 12-1 win against Charlie’s Angels. Y Mellt have the best score difference in the league and this could yet come in to play as they have a game in hand on both Gower and the Orangutans. It is feasible that score difference may decide the difference between first and second in this year’s competition – making for an exciting climax to the end of the season.
Once Were Athletic managed to hold on to the all-important fourth play off position by beating No Dropped Balls 8-2 and Y Genhedlaeth Nesaf are now hot on their heels, recording a fine win against Lookilikies 9 scores to 4. The Friendly Rivals managed their second victory of the campaign, with a fantastic win against Hyrddod Yr Hendy – coming out 6-3 winners.
