Berriew 3

Penparcau 2

RICHARD Davies struck twice as Berriew saw off the challenge of a resolute Penparcau to march on in the Welsh Trophy.

Joe Haycock had already been denied by the post before racing onto a long clearance from goalkeeper Gus Gately to open the scoring midway through the first-half.

Steffan Rogers blasted over for the Rhiewsiders while Penparcau threatened with Mattie Davies striking the woodwork on the stroke of half-time.

Davies was not to be denied on the hour, netting a penalty following a foul by Marc Jones.

It was time for Berriew’s Davies to restore the hosts lead with a superb 20 yard strike before completing his brace with 14 minutes remaining.

Haycock fluffed his lines as Berriew looked to put the tie to bed before Davies set up a tense finale with his second for Arky from 20 yards late on.
