Goytre fightback stuns County
GOYTRE United produced the shock of the day in the first round of the Nathaniel Car Sales League Cup.
The Port Talbot side twice battled back from behind before sending fancied Haverfordwest County crashing out 5-4 on penalties after the tie had ended 2-2.
The West Walians have started the MacWhirter Welsh League season in superb fashion, with maximum points from their opening three matches.
But they found Goytre in determined form.
Haverfordwest opened the scoring early in the second half when Sam Roden found the net.
But Goytre equalised ten minutes from time through player-manager Andy Hill.
The home side went in front again in extra time, only for Sam Wade to take it to penalties when he fired home from 20 yards.
And Goytre clinched their passage into the second round when Michael Waters scored the crucial penalty.
Garden Village also made it into the second round after edging out Cwmbran Celtic 3-2.
Meanwhile, Llanelli Town slipped to a 3-1 defeat at Risca Town in division three of the Welsh League.
The visitors were looking vulnerable when the home side broke, and conceded the opening goal when a cross by Ian Turner allowed Tony Wallis to convert from close range.
Risca doubled their advantage via an own goal just before the interval.
The Reds were back in contention within two minutes of the restart when Steve Stone's powerful shot rocketed past the keeper.
But Risca restored their two-goal advantage through Josh Clayton.
