An outstanding Worthington Newport and District Cup final saw Pill Harriers edge out Bedwas with a hard fought 35-30 win at the beautiful Whiteheads pitch, near Newport.
The issue was in doubt right to the final whistle in one of the very best Worthington Cup finals for many years as play flowed from end to end.
Standing head and shoulders above the other players however was teenager Bradley Williams at fly half for Pill, who won the man of the match trophy after an extremely mature performance in which he showed superb all-round skills.
It was an evening of great excitement with the lead changing hands four times and excellent performances in particular came from back-rowers Spencer Gibson and Ryan Martin of Pill and half backs Matthew Minty and Jacob Wright of Bedwas.
Gibson opened the scoring after a length-of-the pitch move from Williams and Dwayne Bailey, but Bedwas responded as centre Ben Wolats crossed and Minty converted.
A Minty penalty was followed by a good try from Pill lock Mark Francis that Williams converted but Wright crossed and Minty's conversion took Bedwas to 17-12 at the break.
Then came a golden third period for Pill as Williams placed a penalty before his wily running led to two more Gibson tries that the young fly half converted.
Minty struck a penalty and Williams snapped over a drop goal in reply at 32-20, yet Bedwas still refused to be beaten.
First Wolats, then Minty, with solo efforts grabbed tries but neither were converted at 32-30.
The final score was a well-struck drop goal by Pill's replacement full back Callum Rowland, but the excitement was not over until the final whistle.
Pill's flanker and captain Gareth Drew received the Cup from a delighted Doug Jones, Accounts Manager of Molson Coors.
