Vets Match Report – Caerwys Vets 3 Ruthin Vets 2 (words by Richard Newsome)
The last time these two teams met it ended in a 5-4 victory to Caerwys.
Looking for all three points again, Caerwys were on the scoresheet first, Antony Wearden firing home after 26 minutes which was much deserved as the home side had clearly been the dominant in possession.
Ten minutes later Terry Jones made it 2-0 with a strike from the edge of the box. Just before the break Ruthin replied with a close range header from Ian Evans via a Daniel Porter free-kick.
Ruthin started the second half strongly and looked the more likely to score first, however, a long ball up field from Caerwys keeper Ryan Simpson relieved the pressure and allowed the home team to counter attack. A cross from Terry Jones found Chris Geary in the box who made it 3-1.
Caerwys allowed Ruthin back into the game after a defensive error from Ralph Gallagher left Porter one-on-one with the keeper, gifting the visitors a second goal.
After a tense final 15 minutes, Caerwys managed to see out the game, continuing their unbeaten run in the league so far. They currently sit top of the table nine points clear of second place Shotton.
