A number of games managed to go ahead today in spite of some atrocious driving rain, wind and cold.
In the Tesco Cup, St Albans locked horns with Maesteg Park. With the wind driving hard this was definitely a game of two halves. Maesteg had the wind with them in the first half and built a 2-0 lead. Although their goals were scored against the run of play, they took their chances well. But St Albans pressure returned them an all-important goal from a corner just before half-time. In the second half St Albans pressed and pressed, eventually getting the equaliser. But with the wind carrying the ball in all directions and speeds, neither team could secure the winner. The game went to extra time and with both teams tiring it was a case of which team would keep their heads and keep playing football. Following some sharp passing , St Albans crafted a well taken goal to take the lead and the match.
In today’s other cup game Rhiwbina Black travelled away to Tonyrefail. Rhiwbina ran out 3-1 winners in what was a feisty, committed encounter.
In the A Division Pentwyn came back from 3-1 down to draw 4-4 against Whitchurch. In the B Division Pentyrch returned to winning ways in emphatic fashion, scoring 13 goals and jump into third place. At the other extreme, two teams traded goal for goal until Grangetown edged a tight encounter with Urdd by 4 goals to 3. In the C Division, both Marlboro Red and Dragons register wins to keep up their battle for second place.
