Costcutter League and Cup round up
League Cup Quarter Final
St Dogmaels coasted through into the semi finals of the Ceredigion League Cup after they fired six past Ffostrasol at the School Field and they are going to take some stopping as they have just blown away the opposition in recent months.
They do though have some very big tests coming up over the next few weeks with two games against title rivals Crannog, one of these being a quarter final of the J.Emrys Morgan Cup and they also face runaway Cambrian Tyres leaders Penparcau in the last eight of the Cwpan Dai Dynamo. All three look like being very tough encounters and the Saints and their supporters will be looking forward to these big fixtures with confidence.
The greens who netted seven goals in the previous round against Easter Monday Cup holders Newcastle Emlyn were far too good on the day in all departments and the young Wanderers side struggled with the pace and power of the Saints.
Midfield general Adam Williams was the stand out performer for the hosts and he completed a fine hat trick with the best of these being the second goal which was a screamer of a shot from outside the penalty box that flew into the top corner of the net.
The Saints had pretty much booked their semi final place by half time as they were three up and further goals after the break from front runner Peter Almond, midfielder Chris Morgan and striker Louis Harding put the home team out of sight at 6-0.
Ffostrasol to their credit battled away and they managed to poach a couple of late consolation goals through Gwynfor Bowen and a penalty from Gethin Davies.
Costcutter League Division 2
There was very little action in the Costcutter League with only two matches escaping the wet and icy weather with inland pitches in particular not thawing out in time for kick off.
In Division two Newcastle Emlyn Reserves enjoyed a win over an inform New Quay side who pushed them all the way. The seasiders came into the game on the back of a winning run but a reds team strengthened by the addition of a few first teamers including Huw Jonah Jones, Robbie Jenkins and keeper Barry Edwards managed to carve out a 2-0 victory. It was Jenkins who proved to be the goal scoring hero as he bagged a brace to cap some tireless work up front.
Costcutter League Division 3
In division three Maesglas Reserves were forced to come from behind before they accounted for their Lampeter counterparts. The visitors took a two goal lead through Freddie Matte and Mathew Miller but the Blues dusted themselves down and hit back with goals from Aled James and Dan Phillips to level matters. Further goals followed for Maesglas as they dominated proceedings with Barry Jones and Aaron Eldridge netting to see the home side through for a 4-2 success.
