Spar Mid Wales Lge One

IAIN Edmunds struck twice as Llanrhaeadr stunned first division title chasing Berriew 3-1 at Tanllan.

The hosts mastered the heavy conditions to take the points with Edmunds joined on the scoresheet by Iwan Matthews to cancel a reply from Berriew’s Richard Davies.

Defeat gave leaders Rhayader Town a boost with the Red Kites not in action after their home test with bottom of the table Montgomery Town was postponed with Tywyn Bryncrug’s clash with Llandrindod Wells also a victim of the weather.

Meanwhile Knighton Town’s home clash with Bow Street was abandoned following a serious injury to the visitors Dylan James who sustained a double leg break.

Honours ended even in a heated derby at Victoria Avenue with Llanidloes Town hitting back for a 2-2 draw against nine man Carno.

The hosts led through Rhys Evans before Carno hit back before the break through Peter Rees with ex-Daffodil Richie Evans firing the villagers ahead in the second-half.

Tempers boiled over as Rees saw red following an off the ball incident before Ioan Humphreys earned his marching order after a wild lunge on the hosts Josh Evans.

Llanidloes pressed their numerical advantage to level through Ed Clarke but despite mounting pressure could not snatch glory.

Hay St Marys were held to a 2-2 draw at home to improving Welshpool Town who twice led only for the Saints to hit back and claim a share of the spoils.

Dan Bowen headed the Lilywhites into an early lead before Brendan Hackett restored parity for the hosts.

A fine individual goal from Sam Bowers restored Pool’s lead with goalkeeper Ed Harding producing a string of fine saves to keep his side ahead before a late Ben Jenkins own goal earned Hay a point.

Meanwhile Joey Price struck twice as Radnor Valley eased to a convincing 3-1 home win over Machynlleth with Elliott Morris completing the scoring while Sion Williams reduced the arrears.
