BLAENYMAES and Swansea Dockers shared a 3-3 draw in division one of the Pic-Up Spares Swansea Senior League.

Dockers gained the advantage through Ray Alli, but were pegged back when Paul Thomas played in Jack Green, who finished well.

Cameron Webb regained the lead for Dockers and they went further ahead early in the second half when Michael Smith netted.

But Blaenymaes, who are enjoying an excellent return to the first division, got back into the match thanks to Paul Thomas's great strike.

Luke Dalling, who has played for both clubs this season, was Blaenymaes's main tormentor-in-chief and was unlucky not score himself as Dockers cleared off the line on more than one occasion.

Blaenymaes brought Kyle Barrett off the bench and he found the time and space in the six-yard box to equalise and give his side a deserved point.

Keeper Brian Sparkes excelled for Dockers, as did Rob Jenkins at the heart of the Blaenymaes defence.

Blaenymaes : R. Templeton, R. Coffee, R. Jenkins, B. Gallagher, L. Pritchard, L. Dalling, D. Norwood, L. Williams, A. Grey, J. Green, P. Thomas. Subs: K. Barrett, K. Meredith, S. Rees.

Swansea Dockers : B. Sparkes, C. Robb, D. Boat, P. Russell, D. Majes, R. Alli, D. Ashford, M. Smith, C. Webb, L. Hughes, K. Morgan.

CRC Rangers lost heavily again, this time 10-2 to South Gower.

Andrew Ferguson got two goals and Chris Smith weighed in with a hat-trick.

Will James (2) and Zac Higgins were also among the scorers as South Gower recorded their biggest ever first division win.

Cwmfelin Press beat Llangyfelach 5-2.

Ashleigh Dennis put Press 1-0 up on the stroke of half-time and they went 2-0 up when Mark Tregembo got his first of the match.

Tregembo added a second as Press threatened to run riot. Press went 4-0 up when Dennis's well-worked short corner allowed him to rifle home a thundering left-foot strike.

Llangyfelach rallied briefly to make it 4-1 before Dennis claimed a deserved hat-trick.

Llangyfelach, who were suffering their sixth straight league defeat, got a second goal at the end.

Cwmfelin Press : M. Thompson, A. Kift, R. Morgan, R. Jones, R. Clark, L. Lynch, R. Lynch, B. Edwards, L. McManus, A. Tregembo, A. Dennis. Subs: T. Linnard, R. Brown.
