On a damp, grey day Porth Tywyn travelled to Hendy hoping to get revenge for the loss inflicted a few weeks before. Both sides had won only one of their last five, and Porth Tywyn had a nightmare start finding themselves a goal down after just three minutes. A brilliantly executed volley just outside the area by Callum Carew. The Porth Tywyn goalkeeper looked uncomfortable between the posts and Hendy looked to take full advantage by attempting a number of long range efforts. In the twenty seventh minute Hendy doubled their lead, a goal gifted to Mike Grey from a rebound off a saved shot. Four minutes later the pitch and players were engulfed in a downpour of lashing rain and wind. This did not prevent Hendy extending their lead as another rebound was slotted home by Hendy striker Trystan Bateman. A comedy diving header-come-body check by Aaron “Chunk” Foster was the only other notable event before half time. In the second half the skies cleared and the weather improved dramatically. Just four minutes after the restart Hendy got their fourth. Mike Grey rolling home a left foot effort after the ball evaded the Porth Tywyn defence. In the fifty third minute commanding centre back Tom Stevens got on the scoresheet by poking home from two yards after a Hendy corner wasn’t dealt with. Hendy got their sixth in the seventy third minute when Grey completed his hat-trick. He almost added a fourth a few minutes later, but the post denied him. A seventh soon followed when Carew scored his second of the game, five minutes from the end, leaving just enough time for a consolation goal to be scored by Porth Tywyn before the final whistle. The full time score read Hendy seven, Porth Tywyn one. Notable performances for Hendy from Tom Stevens and Callum Carew, though Man of the Match must be awarded to hat-trick hero Mike Grey.
