U11 v Gwernyfed (Home) 06 Nov 2011

7-7 Draw

Monmouth welcomed Gwernyfed for the second time this season and were expecting strong opposition. This proved to be the case with a Gwernyfed side starting very strongly, however they were unable to break through a solid Monmouth defence. Most of the match seemed to be played between the 22’s with strong tackling from both sides keeping the match scoreless at half time. The second half started the same way and it wasn’t until 10 minutes before full time that a lapse in concentration from Monmouth let Gwernyfed through to score near the posts. The score galvanised Monmouth and some frantic play eventually saw Sam David break through to score under the posts. Rory levelled with a pressure conversion kick. With only five minutes left both teams tried everything to go for the win but a tense game eventually finished with a draw.
