Met and Aber go clear in Playoff race

Victory for Caernarfon too while Druids draw with Llandudno

Caernarfon Town 1-0 Bala Town

Noah Edwards’ goal in the fifth minute of this one gave the Cofis all three points.

The midfielder slotted home to give the Canaries the early advantage, which they almost doubled five minutes later through Sion Bradley.

Bala came back into things after that, Steven Tames and Henry Jones forcing Alex Ramsey into saves, but were dealt a blow just before half time when Tames pulled up and had to be taken off.

Both sides were then reduced to ten men in stoppage time, as Kieran Smith and Leo Smith got into a scrap, and were shown straight reds by referee Bryn Markham-Jones.

The Lakesiders pressed after the break, Mike Hayes and Chris Venables going close, with the latter having a header cleared off the line, but sustained pressure didn’t lead to a goal and the home side held out to move five points clear of the visitors.

Aberystwyth Town 3-2 Carmarthen Town

Aber kept up the pressure on Cardiff Met in the race for the playoffs with a 3-2 win at home to Carmarthen.

Goals from Ryan Wollacott and Geoff Kellaway had the Seasiders two up inside eleven minutes at Park Avenue. Luke Bowen capped a well worked move for the Old Gold on the half hour to reduce the arrears, but the visitors couldn’t capitalise on a big spell of pressure in the first fifteen minutes after the break, and were made to pay shortly after when Matthew Jones’ cross was diverted into his own net by Lee Surman.

Liam Thomas netted his eighteenth goal of the season late on to set up a tense finish, but Aber held on to stay two points behind Met.

Cefn Druids 2-2 Llandudno

Llandudno kept their survival hopes alive with a point away at Cefn Druids.

Twice the visitors came from behind to level. Dean Rittenberg put the Druids in front in the sixth minute, but the Seasiders regrouped and put a bit of pressure on the home side, eventually equalising when Alun Webb went clear and slotted past Michael Jones ten minutes before the break.

Jack Kenny put Druids back in front on 62’, but they were pegged back minutes later, Sam Dool netting to ensure the visitors left with a point.

Llanelli Town 0-4 Cardiff Met

A four-goal haul from Cymru C call-up Adam Roscrow propelled Cardiff Met to a comfortable win over Llanelli at Stebonheath.

The breakthrough came nineteen minutes into the first half, the forward pouncing on a goalmouth scramble after Harry Owen’s shot had hit the woodwork.

Any plans the home side had of regrouping after the half time break were dashed a minute after the restart when a handball in the Reds’ box saw Met win a penalty, which Roscrow stepped up to dispatch.

Roscrow completed his hat-trick on 69’, sliding in at the back post to fire past Coughlin, and rounded off the night with a fourth two minutes from time, capping off a Met counter attack.

The result keeps Met in seventh, while Llanelli could be relegated on MD28 if results go against them
