Dolgellau 17 - Bro 15.


A very close fought game was held on the school fields this morning. 

Dolgellau had 17 players in attendance to face the visiting Bro side. 
Bro had 13 players so Dolgellau supplied two players to make a full 15 a side game.

Dolgellau took the early lead from a direct straight run through the Bro defence by George. 5-0.

Bro hit back with two non converted tries.  5- 10.

Throughout the first half Dolgellau kept up the pressure but conceded a number of penalties for holding on in the tackle.

The second half started with a full on battle between both teams. Both teams attacking well but met with even stronger defences. 
Bro’s No. 12 was highlighted as a danger player and George was tasked to mark him for the remainder of the game. This was a big ask but George did a great job and kept him at bay.
George then managed a great run again and went over for his second of the match. 10-10.
Following an injury to Ellis a reshuffle took place which saw the sides go to 14 aside and uncontested scrums.
Blaenau came back to score their third, but no conversion. 10-15.
Dolgellau then built up the pressure and played a number of phases inching towards the try line. Gwern made a straight run but was tackled millimetres from the try line but presented the ball well, another attempt for the try was made again held back by Bro’s defence. Sion Morris then got the ball and was unstoppable and gained his try under the posts 15-15.
Sion Ship then kicked the conversion making it 17-15.
The last 15 minutes seemed to last a lifetime. Bro coming back at Dolgellau, but Dolgellau defending well and kept Bro from breaking through.
Dolgellau conceded a penalty but then conceded a further 10m for time wasting. Bro now in a perfect attacking position attempted to once again break the Dolgellau defence but were denied.
With minutes to go Dolgellau then had a blow of a player yellow carded for a perceived trip. Bro once again 10 metres out had a great chance to take advantage, however knocking on cm’s from the try line. 
Dolgellau managed to hold on until the final whistle.

A great game!!
