Saints drop first points
COSTCUTTER League leaders St Dogmaels dropped two points for the first time this season after being held to a 1-1 draw at secondplaced Crannog.
But a maximum haul of points against Llanboidy this Saturday will virtually wrap up the title for the North Pembrokeshire side.
The pacesetters were nowhere near their best in the tabletopping clash with the coastal villagers, who were without a crop of unavailable regulars but performed admirably and led until the final quarter.
After struggling during the opening 45 minutes the division one leaders got their act together after the interval.
Midfielder Brynley Morris fired Crannog ahead midway through the first half and Saints drew level in the 76th minute when Rhys Jones netted with a free-kick.
Four days earlier Saints reached the final of the J Emrys Morgan Cup after emerging 5-4 winners on penalties against Lampeter Town at Parc Emlyn.
Town were reduced to nine men after two players were given their marching orders for two bookable offences. The nine remaining players battled for everything to force a penalty shootout.
Saints goalkeeper Carl Woodhouse, standing in for the unavailable Casey Walters, was a hero for Saints when saving the fourth Town penalty, while the Greens netted all five spot-kicks via Michael Diggle, Peter Almond, Rhys Jones, Louis Harding and Adam Williams.
The Teifi Estuary high-flyers are due to meet JT Hughes Montgomeryshire Amateur League side Bishops Castle, who are based a mile from the Welsh border in Shropshire.
The game will be played on Friday, April 19 (Good Friday) at a venue to be arranged.
Castle won 3-1 against Cambrian Tyres Aberystwyth League leaders Penparcau at Caersws, but the Central Wales FA is investigating a complaint that Castle played an ineligible player in the tie, and if it is proved they will be thrown out and Penparcau will go through to the final.
In midweek, Crannog reached the Easter Monday final after coming out on top 3-2 against a battling Felinfach outfit at North Road in Lampeter.
The scorers for the Llangrannog side were George Colven, Brynley Morris and Huw Owen.
Back on the league front, Cardigan Town recovered from a defeat at Llandysul the previous Saturday with a 2-0 win over Lampeter Town at King George V Playing Field.
The hosts, who controlled the contest for lengthy periods, were gifted the lead before the break when a Lampeter defender put through his own goa,l and during the second period Steff Davies crossed for Owen Williams to finish clinically.
