THE battle of last season's top-two ended up going the way of the defending champions.

Cefn began their tilt at back-to-back titles in the best possible fashion as a goal in each half did the trick to see off 2018 runners-up Henllan.

The deadlock was broken in the 25th minute.

Jake Walker headed in from a corner to hand Cefn the advantage.

Things got even better for the hosts early in the second half when Rhys Johnson made it 2-0.

Goalkeeper Ifan Roberts was an impressive performer for Cefn, as was Tudur Jones.
