It’s getting tough at the top as Bont are held by Ferry
PENYBONT had their lead in Welsh League Division One cut to just two points after they were held 2-2 at Briton Ferry Llansawel – while Haverfordwest County thumped Ton Pentre 4-0.
Briton Ferry led through Tyler Brock and then Warren Hudson, but the visitors hit back twice to keep their unbeaten league record intact, although it was only the second time in a dozen league games so far this term they have dropped points.
Rhys Griffiths’ side do still have a game in hand on Haverfordwest who closed up on them with a crushing win at Ynys Park.
Former Swansea City hero Lee Trundle – who fired the goals to help steer Llanelli Town to glory last season – was at the double with Sean Pemberton and Rhys Fawcett grabbing the Bluebirds’ other goals.
Elsewhere Nathaniel MG Cup finalists Cambrian & Clydach’s excellent season continues as they inflicted a 4-0 hammering on Ammanford in their own backyard.
Richard French, Liam French, Kyle Jones and Sam Jones were all among the scorers for Cambrian, who are third in the table and three points back on Penybont but have played two more matches.
Meanwhile there were morale-boosting victories on the road for both of the bottom two.
Taffs Well remain bottom will take plenty of confidence from a 2-1 win at Port Talbot Town, while second bottom Pontypridd Town ran out 4-2 victors at Undy Athletic.
