Ponty’s solid pre-season continued today with a 2-1 win over Division 2 side Ceoesyceiliog.
Ponty dominated the first half and restricted Croesyceiliog to one decent shot in target, but couldn’t find a way through themselves.
Then on 55 minutes, Ponty broke the deadlock when a corner by Player/Manager Dominic Broad was headed down by Nathan Thompson and into the net.
Ponty extended their lead on 63 minutes when good work again by Dominic Broad saw him cut in from the right corner and pull the ball back for Aaron Carew to score from 6 yards.
Croesyceiliog played much better after this and got their reward on 83 minutes when Ponty failed to clear from a corner and after a bit of a goalmouth scramble and a great save from Richard Morgan in goal, scored from 10 yards.
All in all a solid performance from Ponty against opposition from a higher division.
