Division 1: Hakin and Goodwick win again

HAKIN United and Goodwick United both earned big wins on Saturday (Apr 1) as the race for the Division 1 title continues.

Hakin entertained Neyland at the Obs but were made to work in the first half against their visitors who battled well.

Shane Walsh put the hosts ahead in the 25th minute and he then turned provider for Nicky Woodrow to score on the stroke of half time to make it 2-0.

Woodrow then scored three minutes into the second half to all but end any hopes Neyland had of making an unlikely comeback.

The Hakin striker then completed his hat trick with twenty minutes to go to make it 4-0. Justin Harding came off the bench and he scored a late hat trick. Ben Fairbairn had been sent off in the 89th minute before Harding completed his treble from the penalty spot.

Goodwick hit eight against rivals

GOODWICK United remain top of Division 1 after they beat local rivals Fishguard 8-0.

Fishguard restricted Goodwick well though, only finding themselves 1-0 down at half time following a 37th minute goal from Sion O’Sullivan.

However, two goals in as many minutes at the start of the second half from Will Haworth all but sealed the points for the home side.

Nathan Greene then repeated that feat with goals in the 62nd and 64th minutes before Adam Hawkins added a sixth in the 66th minute.

Rhys Jones then scored twice late on to seal a comfortable win for the league leaders.

Pennar win to seal survival and send Saints down

PENNAR Robins sealed their Division 1 place for next season but their win over St Clears sent their opponents into Division 2.

The Saints needed to win to stand any chance of mounting a survival bid but it wasn’t to be. It was a goalless first half but an own goal 13 minutes into the second half from keeper Dan James put Pennar ahead.

Despite that setback, the score remained 1-0 until the 87th minute when Kieran Smith added a second to all but seal the points.

Phil Thompson then added a third late on to complete the win.

Swifts and Tish finishes goalless

THE game between Monkton Swifts and St Ishmaels finished in a rare goalless draw. The Swifts had beaten their opponents on the two previous meetings earlier in the season.

Monkton were awarded a penalty in the second half but Dylan Davies could not convert from the spot.

The point leaves Tish one point behind third from bottom Fishguard with both sides having one game left to play.

The game between Carew and Kilgetty was postponed.

Fixtures for Saturday, April 8:
Carew v St Clears
Fishguard Sports v Monkton Swifts
Goodwick United v Hakin United (2pm)
Neyland v St Ishmaels (2pm)

IT’s the big one next Saturday (Apr 8) as Goodwick host Hakin. As things stand, Goodwick hold a 16-point lead over Hakin who have six games in hand on their opponents.

Before that, Hakin have two games in midweek. On Tuesday, April 4, they host Clarbeston Road and on Thursday, April 6, they host Merlins Bridge.

There are also big games at the bottom next weekend as Fishguard host Monkton while Neyland host St Ishmaels.

Tish need to win and hope that Fishguard don’t while a draw for Tish would be enough to see them stay up because of their worse goal difference.

Fishguard have not won since the end of January and will need to find something on Saturday if they are to keep their place in Division 1.
