KEN­FIG Hill sal­vaged four points last week from a Di­vi­sion One de­feat against Taibach at The Plough, writes Tony Poole.

In a split-rink con­test that Taibach won 71-56, the is­sue was de­cided on the rink headed by home skip Bryn Ren­dall, who tri­umphed 29-5.

In Di­vi­sion Two, Prince of Wales Court Hawks slid to a 71-59 de­feat away to Port Tal­bot Ynys.

Last year’s Di­vi­sion Three cham­pi­ons, how­ever, could also only win on two rinks with skip Kevin Egan lead­ing Ynys to vic­tory via a 21-14 rink suc­cess.

But Maesteg main­tained a pro­duc­tive start to their cam­paign in Di­vi­sion Three with a slen­der oneshot win, 60-59, against Tata Steel in Margam.

In yet an­other split-rink out­come, Maesteg skip Bob Lloyd handed in a 20-11 win­ning card, as the Llynfi Val­ley side made it three vic­to­ries from four starts.

Caerau Ath­letic were an­other side to bank four points out of a los­ing sit­u­a­tion – in their case go­ing down 60-54 to BP Llan­darcy Tankers at the River­boat.

In Di­vi­sion Four, Cefn Cribwr toasted a first league win of the sea­son after ex­it­ing Cym­mer with a six-shot vic­tory, 72-66.

Skip David Thomas was the star of the show for the Rid­ers, card­ing a land­slide 35-8 win. And un­beaten Brid­gend Mu­nic­i­pal pulled off an­other vic­tory, sweep­ing to a 71-63 suc­cess over Port Tal­bot Mu­nic­i­pal in New­bridge Fields.

Skip Mal Jones, who tri­umphed 21-13, was the lead­ing light in them mak­ing it three wins from as many starts.

But Pen­coed sur­ren­dered an un­beaten tag in Di­vi­sion Five fol­low­ing an 86-59 loss away to Me­lyn Bor­ough.
