It was a festive cracker for Bridgend Ravens to forget as they slumped to a heavy defeat at Parc y Scarlets.
Spirits were high amongst the travelling supporters following last weekend’s bonus point win over Neath. Llanelli were in no mood to spread any Christmas cheer as they stormed into a 15-0 lead within 11 minutes.
Frazier Climo opened the scoring after 45 seconds before Owain Morgan added a second just three minutes later. The boot of Josh Lewis added to the scores to put Llanelli well in control.
The Scarlets were not finished there. Kyle Evans & Jordan Williams both scored before half time to all but win the game for Llanelli. Gary Carpenter was able to give Bridgend some hope with a try late on in the first period following some superb forward pressure, but that’s as good as it got for the Ravens.
HT: Llanelli 27-7 Bridgend.
To their credit, the Ravens staged a mini comeback in the second period to give the home side a scare. Bridgend got on the board with two well worked tries through Mike Powell & Tom O’Flaherty, but the West Walians were too good for the Ravens.
They managed to score further tries through Ben Leung, Kyle Evans (2, to complete a hattrick) & Craig Price. These scores were all improved by the boot of the impressive Jordan Williams, with Josh Lewis kicking some points of his own to extend the margin.Bridgend Ravens: Tries: Gary Carpenter, Mike Powell & Tom O'Flaherty. Conversions: Ross Jones (3).
