Vale of Glamorgan Football League Round Up 5/3
Penarth Town all but confirmed their Premier Division Title triumph as they thumped AFC Rhoose 4-0 away at Ceri Road. The win takes Penarth six points clear of second place Holton Road, who drew 2-2 with Cadoxton Barry, with a superior goal difference. Knight, Shallis and Thomas goals saw Penarth race into a 3-0 lead before half time, with Thomas adding his second of the game and Town’s fourth late in the game. Penarth now only need a point on Saturday against BV to make their title win official.
As mentioned, Holton Road were held 2-2 by Cadoxton Barry. Sansome slotted a first half spot kick to give Cadoxton Barry the lead and then Holton Road were reduced to ten men right before the break. However, Davies levelled after the restart and Jachontow put the ten men in front on the hour mark. But the drama was far from done and Sansome dispatched another penalty eight minutes from time for a share of the spoils.
BV and Tynewydd played out a 1-1 draw at the Butts, Mathew James put BV ahead early on before Tom Parsons equalised after the break.
In Division One, the title race is reaching boiling point, leaders Sully Sports came away with an impressive 3-0 win away at Vale United, Cottle notched right on half time and then Godwin and Ashton added two more in the second period as Sully negotiated a tricky away trip.
Cwm Talwg remain level on points with Sully, but have played a game more, following a narrow 1-0 victory over Island Marine B at Maslin Park, Kirke bagging the late winner nine minutes from time.
Sully host Vale United next week, playing their game in hand in what could be the title decider against Cwm Talwg on the 19th.
Holton Road remain third with a 6-3 away win over St Athan C. Holton raced into a 3-0 lead with Harris opening the scoring, Angove from the spot and Martyn. Harries pulled one back for St Athan C but Angove converted a second penalty on the stroke of half time. Angove then completed a hat trick of penalties with another early in the second half and then Thomas slotted a fourth penalty not long after. St Athan C pulled another back toward the end as Prior scored, before a fifth penalty of the game was awarded, this time for St Athan C which was scored by Clancy.
Vale Athletic edged out BV 2-1, Jenkinson gave BV the lead but Chaulk levelled a minute later, Stephens then scored what turned out to be the winner on 70 minutes and Athletic held on for the win and they currently sit 6th in their maiden season.
And finally, St Athan B defeated Vale Madrid in a cracking contest 4-3. Sammarco gave St Athan B the lead before Kirby levelled, but Hyslop then put the home side back in front. Sammarco and Brown then extended St Athan B’s lead before Tanner bagged a brace for Vale Madrid to set up a tense finish but St Athan B collected the three points.
