Press survive second-half comeback to claim the points
CWMFELIN Press continue to climb the Prescott-Jones Swansea League division one table after a 2-1 defeat of Blaenymaes.
They have a very young squad that included five 16-year-olds.
Press went 1-0 up through a Rob Clark free-kick from 20 yards out and Liam Lynch doubled the advantage when he cut in from the wing and curled his shot beyond the keeper.
Press were untroubled in the first half, but allowed Blaenymaes to have a foothold in the match 15 minutes from time when a shot from Chris Smith went under the body of Paul Rees to make it 2-1.
Rees needed to be at his best late on as he made an excellent save to tip over the bar as Blaenymaes rallied.
Cwmfelin Press : P. Rees, R. Jones, R. Morgan, G. Harris, K. Morgan, R. Clark, R. Evans, L. Lynch, R. Lynch, A. Kift, P. Lewis. Subs: B. Hawkins, J. Williams, R. Morgan.

Ynystawe Athletic beat Brunswick United 4-2.
Brunswick went 1-0 up through a Michael Eames corner which went straight into the net, but within five minutes of the restart Ynystawe equalised after a scramble in the box and the ball was poked home by Michael Wapham.
Brunswick continued to look the more likely to score and were awarded a penalty which Damien Davies did well to save from Marc Buckney.
Buckney had to leave the field injured after a heavy tackle, which seemed to affect Brunswick.
Ynystawe took advantage and Paul Ankers put them 2-1 up just before the break.
Brunswick responded early in the second half when Eames's shot was saved, but first-team debutant Charlie Coates was on hand to follow up with the rebound to make it 2-2.
Brunswick were having their most dominant spell of the match but an inspired performance from Davies in the Ynystawe goal kept the visitors at bay.
Ynystawe went 3-2 up after a counter attack when a cross from the right was met by Wapham for his second of the match.
Brunswick had more injury worries as Lee Chapman went off. They opened up in search of the equaliser but were undone when full-back Liam Richards got his side's fourth of the game to make the final score 4-2 to Ynystawe.
Brunswick United : S. Budge, J. Norman, M. Jones, J. Eady, J. Wheeler, L. Chapman, J. Norman, C. Coats, M. Buckney, M. Eames, D. Dein, M. Dean, J. Evans.
St Joseph's have made a steady start to life in division one and drew 2-2 with last season's champions Kilvey Fords.
Former St Joseph's player Ceri Cook gave Kilvey the lead with a thundering 25-yard strike before a Steven Stokes equaliser for Kilvey made it 2-2.
Kilvey United : B. Hopkins, A. Johns, S. Stokes, D. Dutton, L. Otten, G. Richards, L. Morgan, K. James, A. Bonomi, L. Chappell, C. Cooke.
