Impressive Goodwick win at the Road


Clarbeston Road 0 – Goodwick United 4

Goodwick United grabbed two goals in each half to gain an impressive but deserved win at Clarbeston Road.
This win sees Chris O’Sullivan’s Goodwick outfit stay two points clear of nearest rivals Hakin United at the top of the table.
The visitors got off to a dream  start as they took an early lead as deadly midfielder Rhys Jones struck a 20 yard low drive in the bottom corner of Rhys Mansell’s net.
Will Haworth added the second on 32 minutes, Rhys Dalling unselfishly squared the ball to Haworth who made no mistake from inside the box.
Jake Smith added the third just before the hour mark, the midfielder cut in from wide out, beat a few defenders for pace before he confidently slotted past the advancing Mansell.
Ten minutes from full time the visitors added a fourth when Rhys Dalling struck a wicked volley against the crossbar, the ever alert Haworth struck home the rebound from 25 yards out to complete a good day at the office for reigning champions Goodwick.
Next week Goodwick United travel to Cardiff to take on Grange Town in the FAW Trophy.

However, the Rooks levelled matters just two minutes later when former Viking Jonty Bennett floated an inviting free kick in the box which Archie Smith volleyed into the back of the net.
Back came the Vikings who got their noses in front with a second goal, goal scorer Walsh played a neat pass to Alfie Stotter who chipped Davies, as the keeper was off his line.
