HAVING not had a proper game for some weeks due to the weather, Dinbych U-11s were back in action for a meeting with Mold.

This was Dinbych's last home game of the season.

In the corresponding fixture at Mold earlier in the season, Dinbych had won by a single score, so everyone knew this was going to be another titanic battle against one of the form sides in North Wales.

The apprehension in the team was evident and created a nervousness, which Mold immediately took advantage of by putting an unconverted score on the board in the first few minutes.

Dinbych quickly pulled one back when a speculative kick from Isaac Jones went into the in-goal area.

Mold were guilty of not playing to the whistle as they thought it had gone dead, but the ever alert Oli Owen ran through to touch it down for a score he also converted.

The rest of the half was nip and tuck, with Dinbych scoring two tries through Iori Jones and Theo Jones, which were converted by Aron Prytherch and Wil Jones respectively.

These scores were matched by Mold and Dinbych went into the break 21-19 ahead.

If truth be told, Mold should have been ahead, but poor discipline, particularly in illegally handing off, gave Dinbych a get out of jail card.

With the slope in their favour in the second half, Dinbych finally got into their stride.

Theo Jones scored his second try of the match from a set move crash ball close to the line, which Wil Jones converted.

Then, in what was one of the best plays of the match, Ben Hodgkinson got tackled, but he still popped the ball to Oli Owen.

He also got tackled and popped it back to Ben Hodgkinson, who had got back to his feet and went agonisingly close to scoring, before Charlie McManus finished the move off.

Aron Prytherch converted.

The last Dinbych try was scored by Theo Jones, crashing over the line for his third score of the game.

Oli Owen successfully converted it.

In the last moments of the game, Mold did score a consolation converted try, but Dinbych ran out 42-26 winners.
