Furnace United 14
A second-half try and penalty by talented young fly half James Griffiths helped Fishguard and Goodwick seal a victory over Furnace United that pushes the Seagulls comfortably into a midtable.
Neither side was able to pull away from the other in a tight first half where home No 8 Mark George opened the scoring with a push-over try that Griffiths converted.
But the lead was short-lived as centre Craig Watts scored a good Furnace try which Jamie Herbert goaled.
It was like groundhog day as No 8 George added his second push-over try from a close-range scrum, only for the Seagulls to momentarily relax so that Furnace pulled level when winger Tom Barnes raced over and Herbert again added the extras.
The Seagulls were on top up front as Andrew Morrillo, Mark James, Richard Hunter, Gwilym Evans and Gerwyn Davies tightened matters up (aided by replacement Nathan Jenkins) so that the outstanding back row of skipper Steve Jenkins, Simon James and George could influence matters more.
It lead to Griffiths powering his way over for a try to go with his penalty and Fishguard claimed their third win
