#JDWPL MD28 Round-Up

A full round up of all the weekend's action.

Friday

The New Saints 3-1 Bala Town

The New Saints returned to the top of the table with a 3-1 win at home to Bala.

The home side were made to work for their win though by a resolute Bala, who took the lead early in the second half through Chris Venables, the midfielder finding space at the back post to convert a cross.

Prior to that in the first half, Saints’ Danny Redmond had seen his penalty saved by Ashley Morris, but the Lakesiders’ lead lasted all of three minutes, Ryan Brobbel’s free-kick going in via a deflection.

Brobbel then put the Saints in front six minutes later, before Greg Draper came off the bench to wrap up the win and give Saints a two point lead at the top with a game in hand.

Llandudno 1-2 Aberystwyth Town

Aber moved up into the playoff spot with a comeback win at Llandudno.

Chances were aplenty in a frenetic first half. George Harry went close for the home side early on, while Ashley Ruane headed against the post for Aber.

Les Davies got off the mark for Llandudno just before the break, heading home to give them a half time lead. Five minutes into the second half, Aber were level as Wes Baynes’ cross found Ruane, the striker heading home to equalise.

Geoff Kellaway then hit the winner for the visitors midway through the second half, latching onto Marc Williams’ through ball to beat Shaun Pearson.

Saturday

Barry Town United 4-0 Caernarfon Town

Barry cemented their grip on a top three finish with a thumping win over Caernarfon.

First half goals from Kayne McLaggon and Mo Touray set the Linnets on their way, with the latter bagging a second to round off the scoring after Jonathan Hood had made it three just after the break.

To cap off a long afternoon for the visitors, they also had Joe Williams sent off with twenty minutes to play.

Cardiff Met 1-0 Carmarthen Town

Cardiff Met left it late, but retook the playoff spot with a 1-0 win over Carmarthen Town.

Will Evans hit the winner five minutes from time, firing home after a loose ball broke to him in the visitors’ box.

Chances had been few and far between before that point, Chris Baker’s long-range effort which flew just over the bar the closet either side got to breaking the deadlock before Evans’ late winner.

Llanelli Town 1-3 Cefn Druids

Cefn Druids secured their Welsh Premier League status with a 3-1 win over Llanelli.

Two goals from Jack Kenny and one from Dean Rittenberg sealed the points for the Ancients, Mikey Goerge getting the Reds’ goal. The result leaves Llanelli eleven points behind Carmarthen in tenth with four games left to play.
