Match Report - 22 Mar 2014, Ammanford AFC Firsts beat AFC Llwydcoed

Ammanford AFC continued their fine form with a 2-0 win over AFC Llwydcoed, thanks to a superb strike by winger Owen James.

James who tucked his effort away in the 62nd minute helped his side carry on from where they left off after a magnificent 7-1 away win last week, but they had to finish the game with 10 men after the returning Rhys Fisher limped off with a hamstring injury.

It was the hosts who first tested the goal though as Jamie Rano comfortably saved a curling effort early on. Ammanford got their first real attempt 20 minutes in as Matthew Fisher latched onto Ashley Richards’ rebound, only to watch his lobbed attempt bounce off the crossbar.

Despite Ammanford’s territorial advantage, it was the home side who squandered the best opportunity of the half as Rhys Morgan raced back to clear off the line after Llwydcoed’s forwards squeezed a shot under Rano.

It remained 0-0 at the interval, but this soon changed as Euros Griffiths’ steely determination to get to the back post was rewarded as he headed the opener five minutes into the second half. Only a few minutes later Chris Hyde played in James who’s delicate dink skimmed the post.

He soon got in on the act though, as Hyde wonderfully turned the opposition centre back before playing it out wide to the pacey winger who settled himself and then let fly from 22 yards to double the lead.

They nearly got a third when striker Richards rolled the ball into the net only to be adjudged to have strayed offside. Dayle Selvage entered the fray to add pace to a fatigued side, but the away side soon had to adjust as captain Fisher left the field with an injury.

However, Ammanford held on to seal all three points.
