Chaquile's rocket enough to earn Treboeth a valiant draw
TREBOETH United Under-10s showed fighting spirit to come back strongly to draw 1-1 with an impressive Llangyfelach Colts side.
It was the Colts who took an early lead when an overlap on the right wasn't covered and a fine shot fizzed into the bottom corner, giving the goalkeeper little chance.
Llangyfelach dominated the rest of the half and only last-gasp defending by Tito Anderson, Chaquile Collins and Ashley Hall stopped the lead increasing.
Nicholas Tooze pulled off some good point-blank saves too.
