Mid Wales Roundup – Matchday 9
It was a quiet weekend in Mid Wales this weekend, with just one games in Division One and three games in Division Two, but there was plenty of action to review.
With just four games, there were 17 goals and plenty to talk about.
Mid Wales Division One
Llansantffraid 2-2 Churchstoke
Both teams headed into the game keen to secure the victory. Llansantffraid came into the game on the back a 4-1 victory at home to Kerry, whilst Churchstoke had e suffered five straight losses coming into this weekend.
Kieran Mulloch put the away side two goals ahead, but the hosts dashed away any hopes of ending the losing run with a victory by responding in the second half. Llansantffraid battled hard in the second half and equalised to secure a heard-earned point.
Mid Wales Division Two
Dyffryn Banw 1-0 Presteigne
The home crowd would have been confident this Saturday after seeing their side beat Borth Utd 2-1 recently.
Presteigne came into this game on the back of two straight loses, and had collected just one point from 12 in their last four games heading into the fixture.
Their poor form continued with a narrow loss against the home side, who secured their first victory in front of the home fans this weekend.
Hay St Mary’s 5-2 Montgomery
Hay St Mary’s were comfortable victors over Montgomery this weekend, as they ran out 5-2 winners.
Montgomery had started the season in impressive fashion, as they sat four points clear at the top of the table before kick-off. The Canaries recently dispatched Presteigne 3-1 away with some high scoring home victories too to make it five wins from five in recent weeks.
However it was the home side who dominated early in this game with a 5-2 win lifting them to third place in the league.

Newbridge-on-Wye 5-0 Waterloo Rovers
Just three points separated the two sides with Newbridge in second and Waterloo in fifth place before the game.
Newbridge would have been eager to re-produce their recent form, having dispatched Machynlleth recently in a nine goal thriller and it was the home side who had the better of the play romping to a 5-0 win much to the delight of their home faithful.
The hosts secured a clean sheet, with five different scorers getting on the scoresheets, as they closed the gap at the top to just a point at this early stage in the season.
Bridge 5-0 Waterloo
A classy display from the boys and a clean sheet to top it off
