RANGERS BOOST TITLE AMBITIONS
LEADERS Bwlch Rangers came out on top in the clash between the top two in the Premier division of the LTC Mobility Carmarthenshire League.
Rangers emerged 2-1 winners at home to Trostre Sports.
In a game which could have gone either way, it was Bwlch who eventually edged it thanks to goals from striker Jordan Follows and Clayton Jenkins.
But the destination of the title remains in the hands of Trallwm, for whom Joel Andrews scored both goals in the 2-0 win away to Carmarthen Stars.
Gorseinon Athletic were 2-1 behind at half-time against visiting Tumble United, but battled back to win 4-2.
Louis Jackson struck twice for Gorseinon, while Robert Jones and substitute John Dixon also scored. Goals from Matthew James and Nicky Anderson had given Tumble an early advantage.
And there were maximum points for Pontarddulais Town, for whom Cameron Davies, Steffan Robinson and Joel Beynon scored in the 3-1 win at Killay.
Striker Luke Limbrick capped another outstanding display with a hattrick for CK Swiss Valley in the 4-3 win over Llandeilo Town in division one. Also on target was Nick Rees.
In division two, the only scheduled game between Carway and visiting Penllergaer was postponed and will be rearranged.
Ammanford Town Reserves captured the Senior Cup, defeating Pontlliw 5-1 in the final at Stebonheath Park last Friday.
After getting the better of the early exchanges, the deadlock was broken in the 31st minute when striker Craig Frater gave Ammanford the lead when his shot from outside the box was deflected past the keeper.
Three minutes later Frater was brought down in the box, and scored from the resulting penalty to make it 2-0.
In the 38th minute Ammanford were awarded a second penalty for handball in the box, with Frater netting again to complete his hat-trick. Although Josh Scott pulled a goal back on the stroke of half-time, Pontlliw were left with a lot to do in the second half.
And eight minutes into the second half it was game over when Ammanford struck twice within 60 seconds to draw clear at 5-1. Bruno Forkuoh scored number four, before Frater grabbed the fifth and his fourth.
The Under-16 DL & LP Williams Cup final at Stebonheath Park was dominated by Dafen, who claimed a 7-1 win against gallant Loughor Rovers.
After taking the lead in the 20th minute through Joshua Morgan, two goals within a minute put Seaside in control. Kyle Bessent made it 2-0 in the 29th minute, and moments later Elliot Jones netted and it was 3-0 at half-time.
Jones scored his second in the 66th minute and completed his hat-trick four minutes later.
Although Loughor conceded a sixth goal to Joshua Watson in the 78th minute, they never gave up and were rewarded when Rhys Piper scored straight from the restart.
Gleeb Roberts made it 7-1 in the 81st minute.
In the Under-12 JH Evans Cup final, Seaside beat Loughor Rovers 2-0. Both goals were scored in the first half.
Seaside made a dream start, with Alex Law shooting them ahead in the third minute before Casper Rejnick doubled the advantage on 22 minutes.
There was also action in midweek, and FC Carmarthen moved to within three points of claiming the division two title following a nail-biting 3-2 win at Bancffosfelen.
FC Carmarthen, who went into the game knowing that maximum points from the last two league games would see them crowned champions, were given a tough time of it before edging victory against their opponents from the Gwendraeth Valley.
And going into the last five minutes it looked desperate for FC Carmarthen, before Rhodri Noakes came to the rescue with the winning goal in the 86th minute. Tom McCarley and Osian Thomas scored the other two goals for FC Carmarthen.
That leaves FC Carmarthen needing three points from the last league game at Penllergaer on Saturday to clinch the title.
Anything less and West End United will be champions.
In the Premier division, Bwlch Rangers were awarded three points against visiting Pwll Athletic who failed to field a team. As per league rules, Bwlch were given a 4-0 win.

A hat-trick from Kyle Grazette helped Ammanford Town Reserves to a comfortable 5-0 win at Pembrey. Also on target were Aaron Butler and Alex Arnold.
In the derby clash in reserve division one, a second-half goal from Tom Schliker was enough to earn Gorseinon Athletic a 1-0 win at Pontlliw.
