NEWTOWN proved a class apart in a 7-0 thrashing of Pwllheli at Maldwyn Leisure Centre.

Town never looked back after breaking the deadlock on 18 minutes with Sian Griffiths on target.

The hosts looked to have settled the outcome by half-time with goals from Heidi Langford and Jacqui Loxam ensuring Newtown a comfortable margin.

It was a similar story after the break with Griffiths completing her brace from a penalty corner before Karen Lewis got in on the act with a double.

Loxam settled a one sided contest with a superb individual goal after bursting from the halfway line to net.

The result ensured Town would travel to Dysnni with confidence in their next game on February 24.

Llanfair Caereinion’s clash at home to Ruthin was postponed due to a waterlogged pitch while Welshpool slumped to a 5-1 defeat at North Wales League One leaders Dysynni.

Sarah Williams netted Pool’s consolation but the Tywyn hosts dominance was never in doubt with doubles from Jo Redman and Lora Constable with Holly Edwards completing their scoring.

Elsewhere a waterlogged surface at Llandrindod Wells Sports Centre put paid to Presteigne’s clash at home to Cardiff Metropolitan in Premier League One of the South Wales League.

Radnor were also frustrated with their fixture at home to Swansea University IIs in division two postponed.

Meanwhile Newtown’s promotion bid in division one of the Midland Men’s League received a blow in a 5-1 defeat at Wednesbury.

Jon Atkinson’s strike proved scant consolation for the Mid Wales side as doubles from Scott Craddock and Satnam Singh Sehra laid the foundations for victory.

Further goals from Bradley Bellingham and Alex Lees settled the outcome as Tom Hillidge’s Newtown side made the long trip home empty handed.
