LEAGUE

Glamorgan Gazette - - Sport -

KENFIG HILL spent the night at Heart­break Ho­tel after los­ing a key Divi­sion Two clash at Aber­avon by four shots, 64-60, writes Tony Poole.

In all prob­a­bil­ity it will lead to Kenfig Hill stay­ing put, es­pe­cially as Mount Pleas­ant cel­e­brated pro­mo­tion fol­low­ing a sur­prise 65-52 win at for­mer lead­ers Prince of Wales Court Hawks.

With the league based around 14 games, Mount Pleas­ant have com­pleted their pro­gramme with 120 points while Kenfig Hill have ex­tracted 115 points out of their 14 matches.

But third-placed Hawks on 110 points, re­quire six points from their last match to over­haul Kenfig Hill – and need 11 to be­come cham­pi­ons.

Mount Pleas­ant cel­e­brated pro­mo­tion at Peny­lan Av­enue in Porth­cawl on the back of a 2011 rink suc­cess from skip Aaron Mor­gan over the Hawks.

And Kenfig Hill were sunk after Aber­avon skip Ray­mond John­son handed in a 19-7 win­ning card at Vi­vian Park.

Caerau Wel­fare con­sol­i­dated fourth place via a 67-54 victory over Grif­fin Park at the River­boat with home skip Keith Llewellyn win­ning the day 25-11.

In Divi­sion Three, fastfin­ish­ing Brid­gend kept pro­mo­tion hopes alive with a 65-40 win over Tata Steel at the Caepant Field.

Top rink hon­ours went to Brid­gend skip Steve Rees, who swept to a 23-6 victory.

While Port Tal­bot Ynys have been crowned cham­pi­ons, the other pro­mo­tion spot now re­volves the fi­nal games for Aber­avon Lib­eral Club Do’s on 126 points, and Brid­gend who are five points in ar­rears.

Mean­while, Tyn-y-Twr Badgers are pro­moted from Divi­sion Four while the chances of Aberkenfig join­ing them one divi­sion higher next sum­mer are all but over.

With the divi­sion built around 14 matches the top four read: Tyn-y-Twr Badgers 14 games 123 points, BP Llan­darcy Tankers 12 – 98, Cw­mavon 13 - 96 and Aberkenfig 13 – 95.

And Cefn Cribwr will move out of Divi­sion Five with cham­pi­ons Bri­ton Ferry Town.

The Cae Gof club beat BP Llan­darcy Oil­ers at home by four shots, 53-49, with skip D Thomas win­ning 20-11.

Prince of Wales Court Ea­gles wound up their cam­paign in de­feat­ing new­com­ers Pen­coed, 8052, at Peny­lan Av­enue.

A 26-8 win­ning card from ex­pe­ri­enced skip Dave Down­ton tipped the scales in favour of the Porth­cawl side.

How­ever, the Divi­sion One cham­pi­onship is head­ing for an ex­cit­ing cli­max after ti­tle-hold­ers Pon­trhy­dyfen last week beat clos­est chal­lengers Bryn Wel­fare, 86-60.

With one re­main­ing match for both clubs, Bryn have 128 points and head Pon­trhy­dyfen by just three points.

Clubs are this week com­plet­ing their pro­grammes with re­main­ing pro­mo­tion and rel­e­ga­tion is­sues be­ing set­tled.
