Something has to give as three Teifiside clubs remain unbeaten at the top of the Costcutter League.

Unbeaten champions St Dogmaels are breezing along at the head of affairs with Newcastle Emlyn boasting a hundred per cent record right on their shirt-tails and the only other unbeaten side Cardigan Town also up with the pace.

But that has to change over the next two weekends starting on Saturday when Saints visit Parc Emlyn and seven days later James Evans takes his Cardigan side to the same venue.

The way the early pacesetters are performing right now it appears that it is just a matter of time before someone is buried under a goal avalanche.

But for missing opportunities galore in their 5-1 win against the outplayed Aberporth at Parcllyn, the Teifi Estuary villagers would have reached double figures but afterwards manager Steve Jerry Williams was pleased at the way his charges are getting things together.

“We are playing really well and when we take our chances it will be even better,” he said.

Saints went ahead after 49 seconds when Owen Williams crossed for Rhys Jones to tap home and the same player doubled his tally with a low 20-yarder.

Aberporth halved the deficit when a stray Saints back pass went wrong and goalkeeper Carl Woodhouse fouled Mathew Smith which brought the Airmen a penalty and a booking for Woodhouse – Smith made no mistake from 12 yards.

During the second period the dangerous Jones completed his hat-trick, Josh Mellor hit the fourth and central midfielder Adam Williams made it a nap hand.

As well as the visitors referee Rhys Evans was on top of his game as he allowed the game to flow.

There were those who believed Emlyn could face a tricky assignment against Crannog at the Urdd Centre, and with the game goalless after the opening 45 minutes that’s how it appeared.

But the Teifisiders upped the tempo after the break and netted three times without reply to maintain their perfect start to the campaign.

They opened their account early in the second half when Huw Jones was first to react at a corner and fired a low shot past Tomos James.

When home central defender Mike Glover was adjudged to have pushed substitute Sam Skinner in the back Steve Thomas expertly slotted the resulting spot-kick and with five minutes remaining a mistake in the Crannog defence allowed Skinner to take the ball round James and slot home the third goal.

Visitors Ffostrasol put up a spirited performance against Cardigan Town at King George V Playing Field but the Magpies had too much firepower up front and emerged 3-0 winners.

Teenager Liam Doherty who last season was a regular with Penrhyncoch in the Cymru Alliance was a constant threat and helped himself to a couple of goals with Dylan Davies also on target.

Cae Dandre in Llanboidy is not the most hospitable of venues for visiting teams but the west Carmarthenshire ground held no fears for Lampeter Town who came through the test with flying colours in romping to a 4-0 win.

Scott Davies was the goal-scoring hero for the North Road side with a well-taken hat-trick and Christy Gale was the other marksman.

It was a game of two halves between Dewi Stars and visitors Felinfach at Llanddewi Brefi with the Milkmen edging it 2-1.

The visitors were in the ascendancy during the first half and led by two goals thanks to Lewis Evans with a half-volley and central midfielder Rhys John who finished clinically.

Stars put the visitors under pressure during the second period and Ifan Thomas netted to give them hope but Felinfach held out.
