Ospreys U18s suffered their second defeat in the regional block, to the hands of the Dragons at Ystrad Mynach.
The Dragons started strongly putting the Ospreys under pressure in their own 22, forcing a knock on. After a strong scrum from the home side, outside half Sam Berry threw a long pass to Huw Anderson who stretched over to score. Berry converted.
Dragons continued to put pressure on the Ospreys, scrum half Zak Roberts was denied by a brilliant last-ditch tackle from Cori Lewis Jenkins.
The home side did score their second of the game when Anderson kicked across field, Will Rees gathered comfortably before passing to Harri Ackerman to run in. Berry converted once again.
The Ospreys responded well to going two scores down. Prop Kian Hire pounced on a loose ball from a line-out and made his way into the Dragons half. The backs threw the ball wide into the hands of speedster Llien Morgan who offloaded brilliantly for captain Jenkins to score. Rhys Harris converted.
Half time: Dragons 14 - 7 Ospreys
