The last 12 minutes where a defensive masterclass and the Llangoed back line closed down attack after attack.
TYG goalie played out of his skin and made some fantastic saves throughout the game.
At one point the referee had to ask Llangoed photographer Dylan to keep the noise down and his relentless clicking was putting both sides off!
