ATH­LET­ICS

Glamorgan Gazette - - Sport -

East” dam­aged Cae Gof club­house fa­cil­i­ties.

A sev­enth league win from 11 starts lifted them into eighth spot with the goals all com­ing in the first half from ex-Bont boys.

Rob Sy­mons opened the scor­ing; danc­ing Danny Woolfenden struck twice while Grange re­tal­i­ated to com­plete the scor­ing.

In Divi­sion One, Cor­nelly Utd gained a sec­ond con­sec­u­tive 5-3 away win to move up into fifth place in the ta­ble. Hav­ing flown to a 5-3 vic­tory at Cardiff Air­port dur­ing the fes­tive sea­son, the Wasps led 4-1 mid­way through the sec­ond half at Aber Val­ley.

But Aber go­ing down to 10 men proved a game changer, and they bucked the trend in re­duc­ing ar­rears to 4-3 be­fore Cor­nelly came again late to com­plete an­other amaz­ing 5-3 score­line.

Ja­son James con­trib­uted a goal hat-trick, mov­ing him on to 13 goals for the cam­paign, while 24-goal hit­man Ryan Penny-Hughes and Ar­ran Jef­feries also found the back of the net.

Lead­ers Porth­cawl Town main­tained an un­beaten tag with a com­fort­able 5-0 suc­cess over Clwb Cym­ric in the cap­i­tal city.

The high­light was a ma­ture per­for­mance from 17-year-old debu­tant Sam Phillips, and a won­der strike from Joseph Jones.

Pint­size at­tacker Morgan Thomas net­ted twice with the re­main­der cred­ited to Ieuan Thomas and top scorer Jorge Crofts.

But Llang­y­n­wyd Rangers suf­fered an 11-0 loss at pro­mo­tion-seek­ing Blaen­rhondda while Divi­sion Two pro­mo­tion hope­fuls Vale Utd dropped more points – this time at AFC Wattstown.

Last time out the boys from leafy Corn­town were held to a 1-1 draw at Llangeinor, and last Satur­day in the Rhondda Val­ley they led for a long­time on the back of a Reece Hicks strike.

Though pow­er­ful Wattstown lev­elled with 10 min­utes to go through Leon An­stee, Vale re­main in third place.

And Llangeinor stretched an un­beaten league run to five matches with a 4-2 vic­tory at Cwm­bach Royal Stars.

Rhys Jones con­trib­uted two goals with sin­gle strikes go­ing against the name of key striker Si­mon Lock and Rhys Thomas.

But in Nathaniel Cars Welsh League Divi­sion Three, Caerau lost 8-0 to classy Pen­rhi­w­ceiber Rangers at the Glass­brook.

Rob Davies be­came the third Caerau man­ager of the sea­son – fol­low­ing Adrian Shearan and Si­mon Livick at the River­boat helm – and the race is now on to gel a much changed young team con­tain­ing a clutch of new­com­ers.

Llantwit Ma­jor sat out last week­end’s pro­gramme, and they re­sume league ac­tion on Satur­day away to Cwm­bran Celtic.

When the sides met at Wind­mill Lane back in Sep­tem­ber, Celtic won the day, 1-0, with Chris Ham get­ting a tasty win­ner.
