CLINICAL finishing enabled Bethesda to gain a four-try bonus point victory.

The 22-10 result leaves Dinbych rooted at the foot of the Division One (North) table despite a committed performance against their high-flying opponents.

Bethesda had the better of the first quarter, but a determined defensive effort by Dinbych kept the visitors at bay until midway through the half.

At this point, the visitors launched an attack from halfway to take play deep into the home 22.

After recycling possession several times, number eight Arwyn Griffiths broke through the middle to cross for a try, which was converted by full back Gethin Lloyd.

With Dinbych under some pressure in the scrums and with limited possession, they were still able to counter attack from deep, giving full back Gruff Roberts and wings Huw Mars Jones and Kieran Bonar the opportunity to test the Bethesda defences.

The visitors then increased their lead in first half injury time when they kicked a penalty into the corner to set up a short-range lineout.

From this, lock Dylan Own forced his way over for an unconverted try.

Leading by 12 points to nil at the interval, Bethesda went further ahead 10 minutes into the second half when Arwyn Griffiths went over for his second try with a solo effort when he broke on the narrow side down the touchline from a ruck on the Dinbych 22.

Dinbych did open their scoring midway through the half when outside half Garin Roberts fielded a 22 drop out and fed full back Gruff Roberts, who sliced through the Bethesda defence from near halfway for a fine solo try.

Roberts also added the conversion points.

Although still under pressure in the scrums, Dinbych were more than holding their own at lineout time, with lock Jamie Williams and Sean Baker - making his debut at number eight - giving additional options to the ever-reliable Gareth Beach.

Dinbych emptied their bench, including giving Ashley Liversage his first team debut to give fresh impetus and with 10 minutes remaining, Bethesda conceded a penalty at a breakdown just outside the 22.

This saw Gruff Roberts take the opportunity to move Dinbych to within a single score.

Unfortunately for the hosts, Bethesda regained possession from the restart kick to go through several phases of play.

Dinbych did well to defend these, until Dylan Owen went over from short range for his second unconverted try, which robbed the hosts of a deserved losing bonus point.
