Following the poor weather conditions of recent weeks, which wiped out multiple fixtures, the MacWhirter Welsh Football League finally saw some action on Saturday, 2nd February with 40 goals scored from seven matches in Division One.
In the biggest score line of the day, West End travelled to Bryntirion Athletic and beat the Bridgend based club 7-2 on their home turf, while Barry Town came back from 3-1 down at Monmouth Town to win the match 4-3 with the help of former Bulldog Nicky Jones, who scored a hat-trick.
Taffs Well went three points clear at the top of the table with a 4-3 home win over Haverfordwest County while AFC Porth slumped to fourth following a 2-3 defeat at Dinas Park against visiting Aberdare Town.
AFC Porth were leapfrogged in the table by fellow Rhondda outfit Cambrian & Clydach Vale, who convincingly beat Goytre United at their Glenhafod Park Stadium by a 1-4 margin. The Goyts situation is beginning to look desperate as they prop the table up four points adrift of Caerleon directly above them, who suffered a 2-1 defeat at Pontardawe Town.
Finally, Tata Steel gained three valuable points as the Steelmen defeated Cwmbran Celtic 2-1 at home to lift themselves out of the relegation zone.
Ton Pentre and Bridgend Town were without a fixture as the match between the two clubs had been brought forward earlier in the season.
The Bulldogs will return to action on Friday, 8th February, but they will face an incredibly difficult task, as following a four week lay-off, Ton Pentre will have to go straight into a Rhondda Derby match against Cambrian & Clydach Vale at their King George V Field home. There will be a match preview for the game here on TonPentreAFC.com during the week prior to the match.
