Cardiff Met have been on the strangest form this season. The Archers beat Llanelli Town 4-0 last week before getting thrashed 6-1 by Connah’s Quay. Then last Wednesday the students lost to Barry Town, so today was a chance for revenge.
Met started on the front foot, Kyle McCarthy played the ball to Will Evans prior to dragging his shot wide. Emlyn Lewis then headed the ball straight to his namesake, Mike.
Town had their own chances though, Kayne McLaggon found some space in box, turned and shot wide.
McLaggon had a penalty shout turned down after being sandwiched by two Met defenders. The winger went down but protests were waved away, needless to say McLaggon was fuming along with town fans.
After 41 minutes the home side opened the scored. A ball in took a couple of deflections before falling to Charlie Corsby who half volleyed in.
It could’ve been two soon after, Roscrow played a one-two with Will Evans and powered an effort wide.
Met kept up the pressure in the second half. Dylan Rees’ early cross was headed over by the aforementioned Will Evans.
Town got really close to an equalizer with over ten minutes of the second period gone. A low drive from Chris Hugh was cleared off the line by Bradley Woolridge.
The Archers second goal was the pick of the bunch. Elliot Evans’ dancing feet allowed him to advance into the box, and the Wales C international found Adam Roscrow in space who rolled the ball past Lewis.
Elliot Evans could’ve had two moments later. A ball over the top was missed by Lewis, and Evans took the ball down perfectly but he could not get his shot on target.
After 83 minutes Elliot Evans did get his deserved goal, his half volley from the edge of area bounced past Lewis to make it 3-0 to the Met.
Substitute Harry Owen hit the post late on, but overall its an excellent result for the Met which means the top six is in reach. As for Barry Town United, they drop to second woth Connah’s Quay Nomads taking top spot.
