Johnstown close to shock win
LEADING 3-1 at one point in the second half, it looked as if Premier division bottom club Johnstown were heading for a first league win of the season against visiting Gorseinon Athletic.
But it was Gorseinon who finished the stronger, striking four times late on for a 5-3 win.
Robert Cunnah netted twice, while also on target were Mark Jones, Sam Trollop and Lewis Evans.
After having a 35th-minute breakaway goal from Ben Thomas cancelled out by half-time, Johnstown started the second half in fine style through Dan Carter and Shaun Burgess.

The game between Ponthenri and visiting Wellfield Athletic was postponed because of a waterlogged ground, as was the clash between Gwendraeth Valley neighbours Tumble United and Burry Port in division one.
And in division two, a victim of the heavy rain was the derby between Abergwili and Carmarthen Town Reserves. Also called off were Johnstown United's game with Ammanford Town and Drefach's visit to Garden Village.
But Abergwili were in action, and caused a major surprise when turning over CK Swiss Valley 3-2 on their own ground. The home team went into the game boasting a 100 per cent record in the league.
Abergwili were behind 2-1 at one stage, but hit back with a couple of goals scored by Matthew Rowlands.
Also on target was Marcus Roberts.
There were hat-tricks for both Gavin Griffiths and Aled Owens, which helped Bancffosfelen come from 2-0 down at half-time to beat KRUF at home 9-3.
Craig Murphy Jamie Jones, and Lee Williams, were the others to find the back of the net.
Postponed was the game between Cross Hands and visiting Greenfield Rovers.
Greenfield changed and took the field for the game at Cross Hands, only for the referee to declare the pitch unplayable minutes before kick-off.
