Saints make it 14 in a row

Llanelli Star - - Soccer And Darts -

COSTCUTTER League high­fly­ers St Dog­maels made it 14 league and cup vic­to­ries on the trot by dump­ing hold­ers New­cas­tle Em­lyn out of the Easter Mon­day League Cup with a 7-3 win in the Pem­brokeshire vil­lage.

Em­lyn were in the game up un­til mid­way through the sec­ond half when Saints brought on four sub­sti­tutes and the fresh legs saw the School Field side draw away and win in style.

It proved a hugely un­lucky day for Em­lyn goal-get­ter Rob­bie Jenk­ins, the ex-Bar­god Rangers front-run­ner net­ting a hat-trick but still end­ing on the los­ing side.

Saints went ahead when winger Jack Thomas fired into the roof of the net, but Em­lyn squared mat­ters when Jenk­ins chased a ball over the de­fence and clipped a shot past Justin Smith.

The hosts re­gained the lead be­fore the in­ter­val with a clin­i­cal piece of fin­ish­ing by lead­ing marks­man Louis Hard­ing.

Re­fus­ing to throw in the towel, the vis­i­tors got back on level terms through Jenk­ins but a Peter Al­mond header was given a fi­nal touch by Rhys Jones and shortly af­ter­wards Thomas net­ted his sec­ond to ex­tend the ad­van­tage.

Back came the Reds with Jenk­ins com­plet­ing his hat-trick.

But then Saints grad­u­ally as­serted them­selves as Hard­ing got goal num­ber five, and oth­ers fol­lowed from Chris Mor­gan and Adam Wil­liams.

Crannog held on to sec­ond spot in di­vi­sion one af­ter claim­ing a 4-1 win over vis­i­tors Ffos­tra­sol, who put up a fine per­for­mance de­spite the score­line.

For Crannog, who led by a soli­tary goal at half-time, striker Ge­orge Col­ven net­ted twice and also on tar­get were mid­fielder Mark Davies and Rob­bie Evans.

Reign­ing cham­pi­ons Lam­peter Town are putting a run of suc­cesses to­gether and be­gin­ning to pro­duce the kind of foot­ball that saw them lift the ti­tle last term.

A fort­night af­ter wal­lop­ing Llandy­sul 4-0 on their op­po­nents’ own Llandy­sul Park stamp­ing ground to reach the next stage of Cw­pan Coffa Dai Dy­namo Davies, Terry Witts and Co re­peated the feat in a league en­counter at North Road.

The un­der-strength vis­i­tors were sec­ond best vir­tu­ally through­out and rather for­tu­nate not to suf­fer a heav­ier de­feat.

Spray­ing the ball about con­fi­dently, Town de­servedly went ahead through Ja­son Jones, and the lead was soon dou­bled when Christy Gale headed home from a cor­ner.

Gethin Hunter, who stood out for the home side, set up Gale for the third goal and young sub­sti­tute Bryn Jones net­ted within a few min­utes of be­ing drafted on.
