Llanelli Star - - SOCCER -

TRALLWM com­pleted the first leg of a pos­si­ble dou­ble when de­feat­ing Pontl­liw 2-1 in the fi­nal of the TG Davies Cup at Ste­bon­heath Park.

Go­ing into the fi­nal as hot favourites to cap­ture the tro­phy, the early pres­sure was ap­plied by Trallwm who took the lead in the 20th minute through Chris Grif­fiths.

And on the stroke of half-time, Pontl­liw were left with a moun­tain to climb when Kris Brown made it 2-0.

Pontl­liw, how­ever, re­fused to lie down, and with four min­utes left on the watch they man­aged to pull a goal back thanks to James Wills. But Trallwm were not to be de­nied their hour of glory.

In the Un­der-14 RWB Cup fi­nal, Pon­tard­du­lais lifted the tro­phy fol­low­ing a 2-1 win against Dafen Wel­fare.

The dead­lock was bro­ken when Jay Rum­be­low scored to edge Pon­tard­du­lais ahead in the 23rd minute, be­fore Kyan Hire dou­bled the ad­van­tage five min­utes into the sec­ond half.

Although Tarl Schultz pulled a goal back for Dafen in the 60th minute, it wasn’t quite enough.

In the first of three games at Ste­bon­heath last Satur­day, first up was the Un­der-15 MJ Bush Cup fi­nal be­tween Sea­side and Am­man­ford.

Although there was lit­tle to choose be­tween the teams in the early ex­changes, it was Sea­side who broke the dead­lock through Tray Jenk­ins in the 32nd minute to earn them­selves a 1-0 half-time lead.

Tris­tan Nunes made it 2-0 five min­utes into the sec­ond half.

Kel­lan Jenk­ins did man­age to pull a goal back for Am­man­ford in the 73rd minute, but it came too late to deny Sea­side.

Af­ter win­ning all 25 league games on their way to clinch­ing the re­serve di­vi­sion 3 A ti­tle, Evans & Wil­liams were ex­pected to get the bet­ter of Kid­welly Black Cats in the Un­der-13s Pres­i­dent’s Cup fi­nal.

Evans & Wil­liams even­tu­ally did the busi­ness, but were taken into ex­tra time be­fore edg­ing a 2-1 win thanks to two well-taken goals by Shaun Wil­liams. It was 0-0 at the break.

Full marks to the Black Cats for play­ing their part in an en­ter­tain­ing fi­nal, and they were re­warded with a goal from Levi Mor­gan in the 53rd minute.

Wil­liams had given Evans & Wil­liams the lead in the 48th minute, be­fore net­ting the win­ner eight min­utes into the first half of ex­tra time.

In the Darch Cup fi­nal, Gor­seinon Ath­letic Re­serves proved too strong for Car­marthen Stars Re­serves in win­ning 4-0.

The only sur­prise was that it took un­til the 31st minute for Gor­seinon to open their ac­count, with Aaron Bushrod tak­ing his chance well. Lewis in­creased the lead 12 min­utes later to make it 2-0 at half-time.

It con­tin­ued to be one-way traf­fic in the sec­ond half, which saw Gor­seinon pull clear thanks to two more goals from John Dixon in the 52nd minute and Ryan Wil­liams in the 88th minute.

Bwlch Rangers kept alive their slim hopes of a suc­cess­ful de­fence of the ti­tle in the Pre­mier di­vi­sion with a hard-earned 3-2 win in the away clash against Gor­seinon Ath­letic.

Lead­ing 2-1 at half-time, Bwlch fin­ished the stronger with goals from Clay­ton Jenk­ins, Jor­dan Fol­lows and Matthew Hughes.

For Bwlch there is a po­ten­tial ti­tle de­cider at home to Trallwm next Satur­day, but it can only hap­pen if their op­po­nents fail to win one of their last two games at home to Loughor Rovers or away to Pwll Ath­letic.

Pon­tard­du­lais Town fin­ished their league pro­gramme on a high with a hard-earned but de­served 3-2 win at home to Loughor Rovers. On tar­get for the home team were Ian Wil­liams, Shaun Har­ris and Joel Beynon.

Am­man­ford Re­serves claimed a 3-0 vic­tory over Caer­bryn to move top of di­vi­sion one. It took three sec­ond-half goals to seal a de­served win for the home side.

Play­ing their last league game of the sea­son in re­serve di­vi­sion one, Bwlch Rangers claimed a de­served 4-2 win at home to run­ners-up Dafen.

Lead­ing 2-0 at half-time, striker Jesse How­ell gave Bwlch the edge with a cou­ple of well-taken goals. Also on tar­get were Rory Johns and Jesse Rees.
