DIVISION four south west leaders Glyncorrwg scored two tries in the first three minutes as they raced into a 31-5 half-time lead at mid-table Pyle.

But the hosts got their act together playing with the slope in the second half and reduced the final deficit to 36-24.

Fly-half Gareth Goodridge scored 21 points via two tries, four conversions and a penalty for the Afan Valley side. The other tries went to centre Nathan Downes and wings Stefan Natiuk and Josh Thomas.

Second-placed Bryncethin's home game with Abercrave was called off, while Cwmavon lost 34-16 at Nantyffyllon.

Briton Ferry beat Cefn Cribwr 46-19 in an excellent game of running rugby. A tight first half saw good defensive play from the visitors, but Ferry dominated the second half and were worthy winners.

Centre Ashleigh Rosser scored two tries, with single scores going to wing James Hopkins, prop W Curtis, hooker Steve Griffith, centre Jonny Fields, prop M Boobyer and full-back Mike Arnold, who also kicked four conversions.

Pontardawe moved up to fourth with a 32-12 win at home to Bridgend Sports.

Prop Darren Rees and No. 8 Jordan Byrne got two tries each, and full-back Jason Richards rounded off the scoring with two penalties and three conversions.
