After handing out a six-of-the-best caning to Bargod Rangers and giving themselves a great chance of taking the Division One runners-up spot behind champions-elect Newcastle Emlyn it was time to reflect on what might have been for St Dogmaels who were down to clash with the Park Puw outfit in the semi-final of the League Cup but disqualified beforehand for playing an ineligible player in a previous round.
The young Saints were streets ahead of the visitors as they produced some scintillating one-touch football and the only surprise of the afternoon was that the home goal tally did not reach double figures.
As the Greens turned on the style midfielder John Curran and 16-year-old pacey front-runner Rhys Jones bagged a brace of goals apiece and the other marksmen were Dan Bellis and Jason Williams.
Defeat left Rangers in deep relegation trouble with only three fixtures left in which to avoid the dreaded drop.
In notching win number 12 of the term leaders Newcastle Emlyn Reserves drew eleven points clear of the rest and it is now surely only a matter of time before they are crowned champions.
The Reds completed the double over Cardigan Town as Gary Davies hit his 12th goal of the term and Steffan Davies wrapped up the points.
Llandysul’s hopes of finishing second were severely dented with a 4-0 home defeat at the hands of Aberporth, the Airmen notching their sixth win from 17 starts and easing their relegation worries.
Attacking livewire John Midgley stole the limelight with a well-taken hat-trick and Dan Davies also got in on the act with a fourth goal.
Also in the relegation mix Maesglas banked three vital points with a 2-0 win over virtually doomed Aberaeron Reserves at Maes Radley. Steffan Evans and Ricky Holmes were on target for the Blues.
