THE RACECOURSE ground


in Penybont was the venue for Saturday’s (Oct 1) match, with the


home team seeking their first win of the season, and Borth hoping to extend their unbeaten start to the season. On a good playing surface,


despite the heavy overnight rain, both teams played an open game as


Penrhyncoch go marching on Penrhyncoch


FC Nomads


2 0


PENRYHNCOCH are through


to the second round of the JD Welsh Cup after they beat FC Nomads of Connah’s Quay 2-0 on Tuesday night (Oct 4). It was the visitors who made the


brighter start as Warren Kelly broke forward on the counter attack and crossed for Aiden Callaghan, but his header on the six yard line was blocked. Some great play from Penrhyncoch


saw 16-year-old Liam Doherty play in Elian Evans, who ran into the box before winning his side a corner. From the resultant corner, Gareth


Mansell crossed for Jonathan Foligno and, after the keeper flapped at the ball, Foligno was on hand to poke the ball home and give the Roosters the lead. They almost doubled their lead


soon after when a free kick was played into the box but Foligno headed just wide. Liam Doherty then beat the offside


trap to go one-on-one with the keeper but he was unable to make his way round and the chance was lost. The whistle went with the score


the half progressed. Borth duly opened the scoring


on 25 minutes with Ryan Davies’ curling free kick into the bottom corner of the net. Almost immediately, the same


player was put through on goal but his shot hit the post. In the next attack, he wasn’t to be


still 1-0 to the Roosters and they would have been pleased with their first half performance. In the second half, Owain James


came close but he shot straight at the keeper from a tight angle. The Nomads then received a blow


to their hopes of getting back in the game when Jord O’Brian was sent off for a second bookable offence. Despite being a man down, the


Nomads almost levelled matters but Penrhyncoch eventually cleared the ball following a goal mouth scramble. Liam Doherty came close again


when he shot from 25 yards out but the Nomads keeper did well to tip it round the post. The Roosters finally made the


game safe in injury time as they broke with Doherty on the ball who passed to Josh Shaw and after his shot was saved, Sion Meredith was in the right place to tap home the rebound. The draw for the second round


of the JD Welsh Cup was made on Monday (Oct 3) and Penrhyncoch have been drawn at home to Ruthin Town. On Saturday (Oct 8), Penrhyncoch


are in action in the first round of the Huws Gray Cup at home to Holywell Town, with kick off at 2.30pm.


Tregaron brought back down to earth Tregaron


St Clears

AFTER picking up their first


win of the season against Llangwm the previous weekend, Tregaron were brought back down to earth with a bang on Saturday (Oct 1) as they were well beaten by St Clears. Early exchanges suggested a battle


upfront against the bigger home pack and so it proved initially, although a missed penalty was their only real chance for early points. On a rare visit into Tregaron’s half,


a chance for the visiting backs to show their running skills was converted into a try under the posts for inside centre Jake Iles, with Geraint Jones adding the extras. The pressure from the home pack


did not let up, however, but again only a missed penalty resulted and the visitors defence stood firm. Another excursion into the home half resulted in a try for scrum half Owain Davies, but the conversion was missed. Gradually, with Tregaron’s pack


denied his second goal as he evaded the Penybont defence and placed a shot past the keeper. He completed his deserved hat


trick moments later with a sublime lob over the keeper into the empty net to leave Borth with a handy 0-3 lead at the interval. To be fair, Penybont didn’t let


their heads drop as they attempted to reduce the arrears but the Borth defence and the safe handling of keeper Sean Gates kept their attacks in check. In the last quarter of the match,


Aber ladies beaten by Champions


Aberystwyth Town Ladies Cardiff Met Ladies

ABER TOWN LADIES


welcomed the current Welsh Premier Women’s League Champions, Cardiff Met, to a sunny Cae Piod in Bow Street on Sunday (Oct 2), looking to keep their good start to the season going. Cardiff Met, fresh from their


European adventure, were first to force the pace when Jassie Vascon tested young Katie Christopher in the Aber goal, who was more than a match to keep the effort out. Aber, prompted by some good


running out of steam, St Clears lively backs started to dominate proceedings, although the next score actually came from loose head prop Gareth Jones, showing a lively turn of speed to leave Tregaron’s defence in tatters. Owain Davies added his second


and Saints fourth with a conversion and then a penalty score from Geraint Jones producing a half time score of 27 points to three. At this stage, the weather worsened


and a torrential sustained downpour made for difficult playing conditions with a number of mistakes being made. The visiting side seemed to adapt


better and, in quick succession, tries for Mathew Lewis, Dafydd Page and a second for Jake Iles put some distance between the sides. One consolation try for Tregaron


did provide some late momentum but another try in the dying minutes for second row Courtney Bowman finally settled matters and the final scoreline of 51 points to 10 was a highly satisfactory result for Saints long journey.


work in midfield by Kelly Thomas and Helen Evans, forced a series of corners which had the Met defence defending desperately and a Wylde effort was


headed off the line before she also bought out a good save from the visiting keeper Mureira after 20 minutes. Aber were holding their own but


could sense that Met had a few more gears to up the tempo and, after 34 minutes, a deft back heel by Robyn Pinder from a Vascon corner broke the deadlock. The Aber ladies responded well


and, with Ffion Wyn Roberts and Hamman Pussey forcing the Met rear guard to give away possession, it was Aber who were on the front foot going into the break. It was important that Aber did


not concede a second goal but after 51 minutes, a Erin Murray shot was parried by Christopher and Emily Allen pounced to give the Mets a two nil advantage.


Aber did not let their heads go


down and despite conceding a third on 58 minutes when Player of the Match Vascon went on a mazy run to slot home a brilliant solo effort – Aber dug deep and with Witts, Evans, Pugh and skipper Evans defending resiliently it was a cruel blow when on 93 minutes a good block by Evans fell into the path of Murray, who slotted home the fourth. A well-deserved victory by Mets


but the Aber Ladies made them fight all the way for the points and, with a bit of luck, may well have forced a closer result than the score line suggests. With a break for international


football next week, the next game is on Sunday, October 16, at 2pm on the new 3g surface at Park Avenue. The Ladies would welcome your support, so why not pop down to see the girls in action?


Liam Lewis scored with a cool finish from a Ryan Davies pass, and the two strikers combined soon afterwards with Lewis’ pass for Davies to score his fourth goal of the afternoon for a comprehensive 0-5 win for Borth. Borth’s all-round team effort


was complimented afterwards by delighted managerial duo Ian Lewis and Paul Hill, and puts the team in good heart for their Spar League Cup Round 1 home match against Machynlleth next Saturday (Oct 8), kicking off at 2.30pm.
