Cardigan unable to halt Swallows

By County Echo Reporter in Football

LLANDYSUL took another step towards winning the Costcutter Ceredigion League division one title as they registered an excellent 5-2 away win at defending champions Cardigan Town.

The win lifted the Swallows eight points clear of second-placed Newcastle Emlyn, with six games left.

Cardigan had opened the scoring through Tomos Toft, after some excellent play from skipper Iestyn Evans, but Llandysul hit back when Lewis Jones’ shot hit a defender and looped over the goalkeeper and into the net.

Adrian Hazelby then fired the Swallows into the lead on the half hour, following a corner, and the same player almost made it 3-1, but for a superb save from Carl Woodhouse to deny him.

A thunderous drive by Scott Thomas also bounced back off the bar as the Swallows ended the half on top.

Cardigan, however, equalised a few minutes after the interval when defender Evans fired in from a free kick on the edge of the box.

Yet Llandysul kept their heads, and Jones restored the lead with deft header, before Dean Jones made it 4-2 from the penalty spot, and Ben Thomas netted a fifth goal from a tight angle.

In the only other division one match played, Aberaeron Reserves, strengthened by four first teamers, beat long time promotion chasers Lampeter Town by 5-0.

Two goals apiece from Gareth Severs and Ollie Edwards, and a single goal by Dan James, eased the Seasiders’ relegation worries.

In division two, Pencader were forced to switch their game to Lampeter, but they still managed to comfortably beat SDUC by 18 goals.

Craig Gordon and Daniel Jones scored seven goals each, whilst Ashley Summers and Owen Broom also scored two goals apiece.
