Seaside ride their luck as they claim away success
SEASIDE continued their charge towards a successful defence of the title in the LTC Mobility Carmarthenshire League Premier division when defeating Evans & Williams 2-1 in their own back yard.
After conceding a 10th-minute goal to Jamie Bowen, the home team were back on terms by the break.
A through ball by Johnny Perrott gave Chris Davies the chance to bang in the equaliser late in the half.
For most of the second half it was Seaside in control, although it took a penalty to win them the game.
When the referee pointed to the spot in the 56th minute, Lee Stone fired home.
But Evans & Williams were unlucky in the 87th minute, when a shot from Nathan Banfield came back off the bar with the keeper beaten.
Off to a great start are Dafen, who kept intact their 100 per cent record with a hard-earned 3-2 win at home to Ponthenri.
A mistake by the keeper allowed Andrew Gardner the opportunity to edge Dafen ahead on the half-hour, but the advantage was cancelled out by half-time.
Dafen started the second half the brighter, so it came as no surprise when they regained the lead through Steven Coomey who lobbed the keeper.
And it was game over in the 77th minute when Wayne Williams scored Dafen's third from the penalty spot awarded for a foul on Steven Devonald.
Leading 1-0 at half-time, Trallwm dominated for most of the game in a 2-0 win at home to Pengelli United.
After edging ahead early on through Daniel Jenkins, his brother Jamie netted a second from 15 yards in the 55th minute.
To add to Pengelli's misery, home keeper Clayton Rumbelow saved a penalty.
After a surprisingly poor start to the season, Burry Port finally came good with a cracking 4-2 win at home to Pontarddulais Town in division one.
Port were twice behind, but came up trumps with a strong finish to the game.
Liam Bennett equalised for Port, who were given the chance to square it up for a second time when the referee pointed to the spot for a foul in the box on 60 minutes. Brendan Holder made no mistake with his penalty attempt.
From there on there was only one team in it, and Port took the lead for the first time when Carl Chant capitalised on a mistake by the keeper two minutes later. Holder lobbed the keeper to make it 4-2 in the 80th minute.
Trailing 3-1 at half-time, Tumble United also finished strongly to share the points in a 3-3 draw with Garden Village.
After letting slip an early lead given to them by Dominic Saunders in the 15th minute, the Tumble players rolled up their sleeves and came out fighting in the second half.
Lee Williams pulled a goal back for Tumble in the 67th minute, before substitute Angelo Dragone rescued a point with a well-taken equaliser.
Trostre Sports were 1-0 behind at half-time, but battled back to beat visiting Caerbryn 2-1.
A good finish from David Bowen made it 1-1 on the hour, before Dale Rees grabbed a winner in the 80th minute.
The game between Wellfield and visiting Felinfoel was one of missed chances, with both attacks proving shy in front of goal.
The deadlock was eventually broken in the 67th minute by Rhys Bowen, his finish from the edge of the box proving good enough to earn Felinfoel a 1-0 win.
Flying high at the top of division two are unbeaten CK Swiss Valley, who won the away clash 3-1 against Llanelli Steel.
Swiss Valley who took the lead on the half-hour, Terry Williams heading his team in front from a cross by Rhys Morgan. But they saw the advantage cancelled out by half-time.
CK Swiss Valley weren't to be denied, however, and they regained the lead in the 70th minute when Luke Lindrick latched on to a fumble by the keeper.
With the home team pushing forward they left gaps at the back, and it was game over when Nicky Morgan scored a third in the 80th minute.
Abergwili collected maximum points in a deserved 4-1 win in the away clash against Greenfield Rovers in division two.
On target with a couple of goals each for Abergwili were Steffan Davies and Olowagbeniro Olokan.
