Hakin and Bridge in two-horse race

Win: Henry Durrant scored as Neyland beat Milford

HAKIN UNITED and Merlins Bridge both won on Tuesday night (Apr 4) as they continued their quests to be crowned Pembrokeshire League Champions.

The Vikings currently sit top of the table and they maintained their position with a 5-0 win over Monkton Swifts.

James Stanmore put them 1-0 ahead and Jonathan Bennett doubled the lead as he buried a shot in the bottom left corner of the net.

It was 3-0 soon after when Hakin cleared a free kick up to Woodrow on half way who in turn laid the ball off for Alex Ouzman who played in Gareth Fawcett and returned the ball to Woodrow who scored his 50th goal of the season.

Woodrow then turned provider as he played in Gareth Fawcett who shot low into the bottom left corner.

Hakin then had a free kick shortly before half time but after the Monkton keeper only punched the ball as far as Stanmore on the edge of the box, the striker volleyed the ball back into the net to make it 5-0.

It stayed that way until the final whistle as the Vikings saw out a comfortable win.

Three points behind the leaders are Merlins Bridge who beat Pennar Robins 3-1 on Tuesday.

Steve McNabney scored twice for the Wizards and Adam Hawkins grabbed their third as they picked up a deserved victory.

Pennar were coming off the back of victory over Goodwick United but they could only manage one goal from Craig Asparassa.

The Wizards have played a game more than Hakin and they will need a bit of help from other teams if they are to capture the title.

It was third versus fourth on Tuesday as well as West Dragons took on Champions Goodwick.

It proved to be a close game with one goal from Goodwick’s Scott Delaney the difference between the two sides.

Carew added to Narberth’s relegation fears as they beat them 4-0 at Jesse Road on Tuesday.

Jacob Knox, Max Brindley, Shaun Whitfield, and Alex Bayley all scored for the Rooks who now sit sixth in the table.

Finally, Milford have just one game left to save their season after they were beaten 5-2 by Neyland.

Milford are now a point above second from bottom Narberth who have two games in hand on Milford.

Scott Jones, Nathan Warlow, Justin Harding, Henry Durrant and Patrick Bellerby all scored for Neyland and the win moves them into seventh place.

Danny Raicu and Ashley Mathias scored consolation efforts for Milford who now face a battle to stay in Division 1.
