Result of the day is probably Canton Rangers fightback against St Albans. Most teams that have been 3-0 down to the Buns at half-time usually end up on the end of a nine or ten goal drubbing. But Canton confounded their league position, not only holding out against tremendous pressure, but pulling two goals back. Rhiwbina overcame a battling Maindy to win 3-1. It might have been more but for some superb goalkeeping by the Maindy stopper.
In their game, Marlboro Black went in 2-0 up at half time, countering on the break with great effectiveness. But in the second half Whitchurch made good use of their physicality to pressure the Marlboro midfield, cutting off the supply of through balls to their striker. With Whitchurch gaining the upper hand they pressed the Marlboro goal. As the corner count mounted, Whitchurch eventually breached the Marlboro defence. With the game drawing to a close Whitchuch scored two more as a result of unfortunate defensive errors caused by a mix of miscommunication and a bobbly pitch. Pentwyn similarly surrendered a 2-0 lead to go down 2-3 to Fairwater. A good result for Fairwater who have been short of match practice of late.
In the B Division, the top three, Butetown, Caerau Ely and Pentyrch all had convincing wins. In their game, Danescourt’s superior physicality over Urdd gave them the edge to carry them to what ultimately was an efficient 4-1 victory. In the C Division, Dragons maintain their excellent run of form, this time with a 6-1 win over promotion rivals Marlboro Red. Marshfield maintain their lead at the top with a 3-2 victory over Lisvane Red, but the results seem to be getting tougher to come by the closer they get to securing promotion. Grange Quins fought back from being 4-1 down to secure a 4-4 draw. A big disappointment for Gwaelod, to sacrifice such a lead, but they will draw confidence from knowing they are capable of getting results.
