PENYBONT remain fourth in the JD Cymru Premier after they beat bottomnm side Cefn Druids 7-1 on Saturday (Dec 11).

The game was only seven minutes old when the first goal went in as captain Kane Owen fired in from long range, a shot which left the Druids keeper with no chance of making a save.

On 24 minutes the home side doubled their lead as a corner fell to the back post for Lewis Harling and he blasted a first time volley back across goal and into the net.

The Bont made it 3-0 with half an hour gone as they won the ball back following a loose Druids pass but when the ball wasn’t cleared it was sent back in by Harling and Sam Snaith was in the right place to head home.

Just three minutes later they added another as Snaith headed in from a corner.

The Druids continued to play but saw a cross come back out off the crossbar.

James Waite then had a chance for the home side after he cut inside from the right before firing a shot against the crossbar.

On the stroke of half time a throw in wasn’t cleared and Harling acrobatically fired in from the edge of the box.

The Druids hit the post early in the second half but it wasn’t long before the home side scored their sixth.

James Waite picked the ball up just inside the Druids half and he was allowed to turn and run towards the edge of the box before finding the back of the net.

The Bont then got their seventh when, after a throw in down by the Druids’ corner flag, an attempt to kick the ball long was blocked and the ball fell to Waite who found Snaith who gave the ball back to Waite who fired in to the bottom left corner.

Credit to the Druids they did not give up and a corner from the left fell to Niall Flint who struck the ball into the net from the edge of the box.

The Druids are next in action on Friday, December 17, when they host Bala Town.

Penybont are in action on Saturday, December 18, as they travel to league leaders The New Saints.
