BUILTH Wells are up to third in the Spar Mid Wales league second division after a crushing 7-0 win against Bettws on the Lant Field.

The game, as a contest, was over by half-time when Shane Claridge’s side led 5-0 thanks to Jordan Hammond, Jamie McIlroy, Joel Metcalf, Neil Davies and Tom Brown. Josh Price completed the win with a second half brace for Builth who included former Rhosgoch men, Geraint Lloyd and Sam Lloyd, on the bench.

Radnor Valley are just two points and a place behind Builth following a super 4-2 victory over Aberystwyth University on Sunday. Radnor were another team to do the business in the first half with Callum Davies (2), Craig Pigott and Elliot Morris handing them a commanding four goal lead.

The second half was a different story and Radnor found themselves under the cosh as the students, who previously had only lost once in the league hit back through Carwyn Eckley and Matt Hunton.

Aberystwyth University had also played on Saturday beating Presteigne 2-1 at home to ruin Mark Weiland’s first game as Presteigne manager. It had started well enough for the Llanandras Park side with Kieran Lusher giving them a first half lead But Tom Spicer and Liam Powell netted for the students as Presteigne ran out of steam in the second half.

Penybont felt they had sufficient chances to have earned at least a point in their 2-1 home defeat at the hands of Abermule. Tom Lewis scored the Penybont goal but Dave Anthony and Tom Andrews saw Abermule return home with the spoils.

Newbridge are likely to face a fine and three point deduction after being unable to raise a team for their scheduled game at Dyffryn Banw.

Leaders Kerry marched on with a 7-1 win at bottom of the table Four Crosses with goals from Daryl McWatt (2), Mark Hughes (2), Huw McGrath, Luke Mumford and Matt Mumford while second placed Berriew staged the comeback of the day.

Berriew were two down at home against Borth who scored through Josh Ferreira and Jamie Evans but Richard Davies, Karl Seliaerts and Jonny Roberts hit back to keep Berriew in course for promotion.
