Match Report - 18 Apr 2009, Ammanford AFC Firsts beat Maesteg Park
Ammanford defeated Maesteg Park for the second time in as many weeks on Saturday to maintain their recent run of form.
The hosts saw off the visitors 2-0 a fortnight ago and it proved a torrid start for Maesteg, with Ammanford piling the pressure on, forcing a string of early corners.
The pressure almost turned into a goal but a Luke Fayres effort cannoned back off the the crossbar.
They almost took the lead minutes later when Gethin Rees found space before his shot was deflected in by a Maesteg defender, but the goal was ruled out as the linesman had his flag up.
Ammanford continued to pile on the pressure and the opening goal finally came through Richard Lewis.
The visitors were now holding on by the skin of their teeth but any attempts to consolidate their position until half time were blown when one of their players was sent off.
Their hopes were dashed further when Murray scored.
Maesteg were reduced to nine men just ten minutes into the second half when their keeper was given his marching orders for a handball outside the box.
Minutes later Lewis made it 3-0 from the penalty spot.
Lewis then turned provider by linking well with Jenkins to set up Ben Serle to make it four and he then wrapped up his hat-trick with a stunning 35-yard effort that ended matters.
Phil Fisher’s men will look to continue their good form when they travel to Garden Village next Saturday.
The reserves lost heavily to Bryntirion on Saturday
