Cardiff Dragons 0 – 3 London Titans

Our third league game of the season saw us acquit ourselves well with by far our best team performance so far in the league. Conditions were good on the day and in the opening exchanges of the game both defenses played well to limit the chances early on. Both Titans wingers proved tricky and as the half went on they began to create some scoring opportunities but Kris K on his debut dealt well with a couple of well struck shots. At the other end the Dragons forced a couple of corners and from one of these had an excellent opportunity from close in to take the lead. Titans took full advantage and went ahead just after the half hour mark when their forward timed his run well to latch onto a through ball and slide the ball low into the corner of the net. The Dragons hit back and should have equalised shortly afterwards when another clear cut chance from a corner when Alf found space at the back post but he was unable to connect with the ball allowing the Titans defense to clear and break upfield quickly to make it 2-0 with another attack through the middle and this is how it remained until half time.

In the second half the game John A came on for the Dragons making his debut for the club. The Titans slowly began to gain control of the game as the Dragons struggled to create much going forward against a resolute Titans defence. The Titans chances early in the half though were mainly from long range though as the home defense of Muzz, Paul, Ray and Lucas defending well as a unit supported well by Anthony who had an excellent game. Kris L continued to perform well in goal on his debut and made an excellent save to tip one long range effort away for a corner. The half remained goalless until halfway through when Titans made it 3-0 with a goal similar to their first two. The Dragons remaining substitutes Jason, Amy, Lucy and Darrin were introduced in the latter stages of the game which was played out with no further goals. It was nice to see so many Dragons supporters there on the day overall it was a great team effort on and off the pitch.

Dragons: – Kris Llewellyn, Murray Harvey, Paul Searle, Ray Wilson, Lucas Owen, Anthony Read, Germain Cedric, Samuel Ashton, Stefan Morgan, Hywel Jones, Lyons, Jason Cousins, Lucy Lockwood, Amy Johnson, Darrin Hughes, John A and Dave Amos.
