Ceredigion Costcutter League round up
In the only game played in division one on Saturday St Dogmaels ran out 2-0 winners over Crannog and returned to the top of the table ahead of title rivals Cardigan who trail them by three points but with a game in hand.
Steve Williams and his men dominated for long periods of this hard fought tussle and should have put more chances away although Crannog went close on a few of occasions with a couple of headers sneaking over the bar and George Colven had one decent opportunity but the Saints were well worth their win in slippery conditions. Outstanding once again for the greens was midfielder Rhys Jones (pictured) and he provided both the goals, with one from a header and the second from a free kick.
Crannog pushed hard through the likes of Colven, Gary Davies and Mike Glover but the Saints defence held firm with skipper Jason Williams a tower of strength and the visitors saw the game out for their ninth win from ten starts.
The matches between Llanboidy and Ffostrasol and Aberporth v Dewi Stars were rained off.
Crannog Reserves continued with their decent form of late to produce a fine win away at Parc Puw against a decent Bargod Rangers outfit. Two goals from front runner Rhydian Roberts proved to be the difference between the teams in a well matched encounter. Tony MacDonald was also on target for Crannog whilst for Rangers Jack Fisher netted from the penalty spot.

The match between Lampeter Reserves and St Dogmaels Reserves was postponed.
Cardigan emerged winners of the local derby match against town rivals Maesglas Reserves in what turned out to be a splendid match even in the very difficult heavy conditions and well refereed by Dai Morris. There was little to choose between the teams at the break with the score locked at 1-1 with Chris Jones netting for the Blues with a fine strike and player manager Richard Cummings responding for the Magpies. Cardigan enjoyed territorial advantage after the interval and enjoyed several decent chances with sixteen year old midfielder Jack Everton showing some superb touches and he has the makings of becoming a very fine player.
The hosts had several decent chances with Aaron Evans unlucky not to score on two occasions but a goal eventually arrived when Mallt Maskell was on hand to tap the ball home following good work from left winger Steff Davies and midfielder Kieran Hurley. The killer goal arrived late on but it was well worth waiting for when Maskell rose above the Blues defence to deftly head home a superb cross from Aled Davies to make it 3-1.
There were plenty of goals at Felinfach where their Reserve side were held to a 4-4 draw by Llanboidy Reserves. On target for the milkmen were Kris Griffiths who bagged a brace, Robbie Bull and Dafydd Evans. For the visitors Owain Gibbin struck twice and there were goals also for Ifan Jones and Gethin Scourfield.
The match between Llandysul Reserves and Newcastle Emlyn Reserves was postponed.
