HENLLAN took over at the top of the Tillwise Summer League with their 6-1 derby triumph at home to Trefnant.

There were two goals apiece from Dewi Jones and Nico Clwyd, with Mathew Jones and Ed Jones also on target.

Dave Hudson replied for determined Trefnant.

What a game it was at Cae Nant, where Llandyrnog preserved their 100 per cent winning start with a thrilling 4-3 success over Clawddnewydd.

Jimmy McNally's hosts built-up a 3-0 interval lead, only for Clawdd to level things up in the second half.

However, a last minute winner gave Llandyrnog their second three-point haul of the week.

"Credit to Clawdd, great side, great effort," said McNally.

Craig Jones (penalty), Tom Hughes, Luke Humphreys and Morgan Jones sealed it for Llandyrnog, with Tirion Griffiths (2) and Rhidian Edwards taking Clawdd close.

Opening night leaders Cefn suffered a 1-0 home defeat to Ysceifiog.

Ysceifiog manager Tony Doyle said: "The Ysceifiog players put a great shift in with only one sub.

"Battled the full game against a very good Cefn team. Our defence was solid."

Mike Guest grabbed the all important goal.

Llanrhaeadr's unbeaten start continued with a hard-fought 3-1 triumph at near neighbours Rhewl.

Tomos Hywel's neat finish gave Llanrhaeadr the lead, only for Rhewl to hit back before the break via Gwern Hughes.

Dyfed Baldry regained the lead for the visitors, before a peach of a strike from 20 yards by Osian Davies sealed the deal.

There was last minute drama as Nantglyn edged out Caerwys 2-1.

Gruff Roberts and Geraint Jones' 92nd minute header won it for Nantglyn, with Rich Hughes on target for Caerwys.

"Unlucky not to get a draw," said Caerwys boss Andy Price.

"On our bare bones with lads dropping out. Keeper broke his finger in the warm up.

"Young Will Owen stepped in, (had a) brilliant game in the sticks and got man of the match."

Jak Newell returned to haunt his former club as Llanfair defeated Llangynhafal 5-2.

Newell was on target twice for Huw Price's charges, as other goals came from Harri Williams, James Harrison and Meirion Williams.
