PORT TAL­BOT & DIS­TRICT BOWLS LEAGUE

Glamorgan Gazette - - Sport -

ABERKENFIG last week failed in a late bid to play back on the Di­vi­sion Three cir­cuit next sum­mer, writes Tony Poole.

They needed to take max­i­mum points out of their fi­nal game at home to Cym­mer – and hope pro­mo­tion ri­vals BP Llan­darcy Tankers crashed dur­ing their two last matches.

And while Aberkenfig beat Cym­mer by eight shots, 65-57, they could only squeeze 10 points out of the game.

Top rink hon­ours on the night went to Aberkenfig skip Alan Sut­ton, who tri­umphed 26-7.

But BP Tankers went on to steam­roller Cw­mavon and Me­lyn Bor­ough, both at Llan­darcy Park, to fin­ish just a point shy of divi­sional cham­pi­ons Tyn-yTwr Badgers.

Aberkenfig had to be sat­is­fied with third spot, clos­ing 17 points in the slip­stream of the Tankers.

In Di­vi­sion Five, league new­com­ers Pen­coed con­sol­i­dated third place with a 71-66 home vic­tory over Me­lyn United cour­tesy of a 24-14 rink vic­tory from skip P El­lis.

How­ever, two pro­mo­tion is­sues with lo­cal in­ter- est at­tached were due to be set­tled ear­lier in the week.

In Di­vi­sion Two, Prince of Wales Hawks re­quired six points to over­haul Ken­fig Hill and play in the top tier next sum­mer along with Mount Pleas­ant.

How­ever, if the Hawks last night (Tues­day) flew back to Peny­lan Av­enue with at least 11 points then they will be cham­pi­ons as op­posed to Mount Pleas­ant.

And in Di­vi­sion Three, Brid­gend played cham­pi­ons Port Tal­bot Ynys at the Caepant Field on Mon­day look­ing for a healthy haul of points.

But pro­mo­tion ri­vals Aber­avon Lib­eral Club Do’s, who face Caerau Ath­letic in their fi­nal fix­ture, held a five-point ad­van­tage over Brid­gend RE­SULTS: Di­vi­sion One: Bri­ton Ferry Steel 79 (8 points) Llan­sawel 72 (6), Taibach 65 (12) TRW Cam Gears 60 (2). Di­vi­sion Two: Aber­avon 61 (11) Maesteg Celtic 56 (3), Aber­avon 57 (10) Croe­serw 54 (4). Di­vi­sion Four: Aberkenfig 65 (10) Cym­mer 57 (4), BP Llan­darcy Tankers 57 (10) Cw­mavon 48 (4), BP Llan­darcy Tankers 60 (14) Me­lyn Bor­ough 47 (0). Di­vi­sion Five: Pen­coed 71 (10) Me­lyn United 66 (4).
