Young Emyr starts off with a hat-trick
YSTALYFERA top division three south west after a 60-12 hammering of Morriston.
The Swansea Valley side secured a bonus point well before half-time, and the game was over as a contest as they led 36-0 at the break.
Two newcomers led the way, young wing Emyr Myers getting a hat-trick in his first senior game for his hometown club and full-back Daniel Sullivan, a summer recruit from Vardre, touching down twice.
The other tries went to centre Ashley Carter, fly-half Gareth James, flanker Nathan Astley and prop Jonathan Williams. Wing Damian James kicked one conversion while his brother Gareth landed five plus a drop-goal.
Morriston scored two tries via scrum-half Gareth Thomas and wing Steffan Thomas. Fly-half Richard Huxtable converted one of them.
Resolven are joint second after a 30-3 home victory against winless Glyncorrwg, who prop up the table.
Resolven, who had to work hard to break through Glyncorrwg's determined defence, scored three tries through hooker Nicky Reed, flanker Matthew Evans and wing Nathan Davies. It was former youth player Davies's first try in senior rugby.
Steffan Williams kicked 15 points with two penalties, a drop-goal and three conversions. Lively scrum-half Dai Felton was Resolven's man of the match.
Brynaman made it three wins out of three and moved up to fourth place after beating visitors Pencoed 9-3 in a game that was more entertaining than the scoreline suggests.
Fly-half Craig Jones got all the hosts' points with two penalties and a drop-goal. Lock Daniel Page and prop Cerith Edwards impressed for Bryn.
Penlan went down to their first defeat at a misty Mynydd Newydd. They lost 16-13 to Neath Athletic, for whom it was the first win of the campaign.
Flanker Robert Green got Penlan's only touchdown after just three minutes and fly-half Scott Davies added the conversion and two penalties.
The Athletic, who nullified the threat posed by Penlan's backs, responded with tries by flanker Ian Thomas and fly-half Craig Gorman plus two penalties by full-back Adam Rowlands.
Joint-second Maesteg Celtic beat Taibach 16-12 in a mistake-ridden game.
Taibach took the lead with a Mike McSweeney penalty, cancelled out by a Luke Richards three-pointer. The home side then took the lead with a try from Nathan Healy, Richards converting and then kicking a penalty for a 13-3 half-time lead.
McSweeney and Richards swapped penalties early in the second half, then McSweeney kicked a further two penalties in the last quarter but Celtic hung on for the win.
Bryncoch came agonisingly close to their first win of the season when going down 34-31 at Pontycymer.
The Garw Valley hosts scored a try with the final play of the game to deny the Neath villagers, though the visitors did have the satisfaction of claiming two bonus points.
Their four tries were scored by fly-half Gavin Jones, full-back Richard McNeill, lock Stuart Newton and centre Tom Armstrong. Jones converted all four and added a penalty.
