Haverfordwest County 5 AFC Porth 1
THE Bluebirds scored five second half goals to stun their opponents and the win means they return to the top of the table.
The home side started slow and AFC Porth were in front after 12 minutes when Joel Woodington pounced on to a loose back pass and shot low under Chris Curtis.
The Blues had a goal ruled out for offside, but that was all they could muster in what was a lack-lustre first half by their standards.
Porth could not find another goal as Curtis performed well in goal keeping his side in the game. Whatever Wayne Jones said at half time must have worked because his side produced a stunning performance in the second half.
Steffan Williams was brought on as a sub and he turned the game on its head.
Firstly he headed home Lewis’ cross ten minutes after coming on and two minutes later he put the Blues into the lead latching on to a through ball and shooting calmly past Porth keeper Nick Thomas.
Porth were still looking dangerous as Woodington went close with two efforts before captain Jarrad Wright headed just wide.
As they pushed forward looking for an equaliser the Blues took advantage and with 15 minutes left Lewis made it 3-1, driving low into the corner after being put through by Sean Pemberton.
The Blues were not content to sit on their two-goal lead and added a fourth six minutes from time when Matthew Fisher hammered home.
The scoring was completed shortly after as Joey Leahy beat the offside trap and then went on to produce a lovely chip over the keeper to make it 5-1.
Before the match players and supporters observed a minute’s silence for Rhiannon Webb, wife of club stalwart Barry Webb, who passed away during the week.
The programme sponsor was Hoydens Joinery of Withybush, and the ball sponsors were Jason Windsor and friends.
The Blues now top the table by a point, but will have another tough game on Saturday when they travel to third placed Monmouth Town. They return to the Conygar Bridge Meadow to play Cambrian & Clydach, on Saturday January 18.
