WHAT a terrific weekend it turned out to be for Caerwys.

They faced their toughest opponent of late with a trip to Clwyd League (East) leaders Brymbo Victoria, who had only lost one in their previous 12 games.

Several changes were made to the Caerwys line-up due to injuries, but Josh Richardson returned to strengthen the midfield and Ruari Wood started at left back.

The first half was positive for Caerwys as they looked to play out from keeper Seb Czubaj, recently transferred back from Corwen.

Unfortunately after 21 minutes, holding midfielder Deiniol Bower suffered an injury blow which left him unable to continue, with Jarek Sackowicz replacing him.

Caerwys continued to battle against the wind and neither keeper was really tested.

The second half was the best half Caerwys have played all season.

They opened the scoring in the 50th minute when Ruari Wood's long throw was headed in by winger Lewis Evans.

Caerwys continued to play attacking and attractive football, however Brymbo Victoria levelled things up via a wind-assisted long range effort.

Jon Edmonds came off the bench for Caerwys and he made an impact.

Edmonds played a ball into the box and when it was just missed by Elgan Hughes, Ryan Jones controlled before smashing home from six yards out.

Caerwys had chance after chance to add to their lead, with Elgan Hughes having one cleared off the line.

The goal that made it 3-1 was scored by Jon Edmonds.

Good work by Jack Mackie and Elgan Hughes set up Edmonds one-on-one with the keeper and he slotted it home.

Edmonds busy spell ended when he was sent off with 20 minutes left, but every Caerwys player battled to ensure the score stayed 3-1.

In the 92nd minute, a penalty was awarded to Brymbo for a hand ball against Elgan Hughes.

Paul Mesham stepped up to take it, but his penalty was saved by goalkeeper Seb Czubaj.
