Holders Saints bow out

CWPAN Coffa Dai Dynamo Davies (formerly Cwpan Ceredigion) holders St Dogmaels bowed out after going down to a solitary extra time goal against Cambrian Tyres League leaders Borth United in a pulsating tie at the School Field.
It was tie Saints could and should have won in normal time but the Teifi Estuary villagers were guilty of fluffing a handful of golden opportunities.
Transferring back to Saints after a spell with New Quay central defender Chris Thomas was immense throughout and without doubt man-of-the-match as he repelled Borth raids with a commanding performance.
As Saints strove to open their account Sam Hall made a hash of a one-to-one situation with the visiting goalkeeper while Trevor Woodgate and Stan Bellis also failed to convert when well-placed.
Heads were turned when the result came through from the Urdd Centre at Llangrannog where Crannog went through after a 6-3 win over Division One leaders Newcastle Emlyn Reserves.
In a wind-affected tie winger George Colven fired Crannog ahead and impressive front-runner Rhydian Roberts was also on target during the opening 45 minutes when Phil Furney netted twice for the visitors.
Furney completed his hat-trick and nudged Emlyn ahead early in the second period but Colven netted twice for his hat-trick and Huw Reed playing in an unfamiliar striking role bagged a brace of goals after good work by Roberts.
In another tie spoilt by high winds Maesglas of Division One eased to a 5-0 win over Division Two strugglers Llanon. Steff Evans, Ashley Summers (2), Joe Hall and Darren Davies were on target for the visitors.
Last season’s beaten finalists and reigning league champions New Quay went through without kicking a ball in anger after Aberdyfi failed to raise a team for the journey south.
