Football-Central Wales Cup – Cwpan Dai Dynamo- Central Wales Youth Cup.
CWFA Senior Cup
Newcastle Emlyn continued with their excellent form of late to register a hard fought win over Llandysul In the second round of the CWFA Senior Cup. On target again this week for the reds was young winger Cory Davies (pictured) who is impressing many observers this term with his ability on the ball. Davies netted twice as did experienced midfielder Sam Skinner. Also on target was skilful playmaker Arthur Davies as the reds won by 5-3.
Tregaron remain unbeaten but they had to fight all the way against UWA first team at Vicarage fields in what was a proverbial game of two halves. The University dominated the first half and adapted far better to the very heavy pitch conditions but a few costly misses and some good saves by Turfs keeper Marty Toye kept them out and it was 0-0 at half time.
The Turfs came out after the interval in a very positive manner and took the lead on 20 minutes when a corner from captain Ifan Jones found Cledan Davies ghosting in at the far post and he headed into the net. The next ten minutes produced the biggest talking points of the game, with Aber Uni equalising from a very debatable penalty before the winning goal arrived for the Turfs from another hotly disputed penalty. Rhun Garner confidently slotting home from the spot.
New Quay travelled to Waterloo Rovers in a confident mood following six wins from seven starts but they were up against a team also in decent form and they were far too good for the mackerel men on the day winning by 7-1.
Scott Holley and Chris Proctor bagged a brace apiece for the Rovers and there were goals for Mike Jones, Ollie Davies and Mark Proctor.
Cwpan Dai Dynamo
Aberporth coasted through to the third round of the Cwpan Dai Dynamo after they defeated Penrhyncoch Reserves by 3-1. Midfielder Mathew Smith was once again the star of the show as he bagged a brace of goals and there was one also for Rhys Glover.
Crannog were forced to work very hard to overcome the challenge of Talybont in what was a very physical encounter. The North Ceredigion side opened the scoring but Crannog hit back when defender Mike Glover headed home from a corner and he doubled his tally not long afterwards to put his team ahead. The hosts levelled the scores from a hotly disputed penalty but two goals in quick succession by Ifan Sion, both clinically put away, killed the game off before Talybont grabbed a consolation goal in the final minute.
Lampeter enjoyed an easy passage through after they fired nine goals past Dolgellau Reserves and it could have been a great deal more with the chances they missed. Gethin Hunter and Luke Lovell (pictured) claimed a brace apiece and there were singles for Jason Jones, Christy Gale, Scott Davies, Rhys Bowden and an own goal.
