Despite being held to a 2-2 draw by village rivals Plas Madoc, Cefn Albion still cling on to top spot by a one point margin. It was the classic game of two halves with the visitors enjoying a good first period and deserved their 2-0 lead carved out by Liam Sklenar and Cefn old-boy Nicky Williams. The second half needed a big response from Albion and full credit to the players they produced one. Callum Mannion lobbed the keeper to reduce the deficit and his strike partner Alex Williams squared the match with a brilliant header.

Breathing right down Albion’s neck though are Brymbo who secured a deserved 4-1 success against Rhos Aelwyd. Manager Phil Hudson said “I was very pleased by today’s performance, a good win in fact, especially with some key players missing. We dominated with some great football throughout the game; the only disappointment was not keeping a clean sheet which would have provided a complete performance. Our marksmen were Jordan Deer, Zak Clark, Jamie Cumming and Ben Kearney.” Netting a lone consolation goal was Daniel Eccles.

Brickfield took quite a battering and flopped to a 5-1 reversal against Rhydymwyn who went nap through Nathan Mendoza (2), Danny Wynne (2) and Kyle Harte.

Llay Welfare were back to their best and sent Penycae crashing to a 3-0 defeat with manager Mike Gadie summing things up as follows “After coming to terms with Penycae’s fast start, we soon got to grips with the game and settled into the encounter well. We were causing constant threats down each flank and some great work from Liam Hughes saw his pin point cross tucked home by Ryan Godband. We quickly scored the second after Matt Worrall and Tom Wells linked up well and enabled man of the match Liam Hughes to tuck home an excellent finish. Our third and killer goal came at just the right time when the vision and audacity of Matt Worrall who saw Penycae keeper Tom Belton off his line and he scored with the cheekiest of lobs. It was great to get the clean sheet and an excellent performance from all involved.”

After a run of cup defeats, FC Queens Park were glad to get back to league duty and they secured a 2-0 verdict against Chirk AAA’s. The win left Park boss rather pleased with him commenting “It was surprising to see our visitors Chirk turn up with a near complete new team. It was extremely youthful and in fact they had 8 of their U19’s playing and from the standard of their performance they can pat themselves on the back. Josh Phillips returned from Germany and was thrown straight into the starting eleven and he made an instant impact. The main feature of the first half was the amount of pressure and corners the Park were putting together but credit to Chirk who stood firm and their make shift keeper was in inspired form as he plucked every corner out of the sky. Chirk always looked threatening on the counter attack and frustrated Queens Park to hold us to 0 - 0 at half time. After the break, we created a lot more chances but it looked like it was going to be ‘one of those days’. As the clock ticked away, Rhys Hughes eventually broke the deadlock we then went on to wrap up the points when Josh Philips put the game too bed. I would like to make special mention to Chirk's youthful side, many of their players were making their first appearance at this level and they were all a credit to their management team. It’s a tough place to come down the Tip and they all stood up to the test.”

Castell Alun took an early lead through Jack Carden in their home game against Rhostyllen who turned this encounter on its head to win 4-1. That man of the moment Tom Douglas was a class apart from the rest and he netted all four of the visitor’s goals.

There was a seven goal feisty clash at Alyn Park where Mold Alex were second best against Saltney Town. Lee Jones broke the deadlock for Mold with just 10 minutes gone but instead of going in at half time in front, Rabih Jumaa levelled on 40 minutes with a splendid overhead kick and from the restart Mold’s Connor Kendrick nets after a Danny Warren shot had been saved. Right on the half time whistle, Steve Chiocci then levelled things. After the restart, Saltney were the brighter side and went ahead with a close range effort from Ben Evans. On the hour mark there was a flash point and Mold had Kev Day and Saltney had Jack Roberts both shown red cards. On as a second half sub after signing from Chirk and making his debut Louis Middlehurst pegged things back to 3-3. Just as it seemed both sides were set to settle for a point apiece, Saltney’s Scott Beach grabbed a winner for his side to sneak a 4-3 verdict but there was more drama to follow as in stoppage time, Saltney had skipper Ben Evans dismissed. Mold boss Mike Cunningham was left quite dejected saying “It was our first home defeat in the league in the last 12 months so I am gutted for the lads today. In the first 25 minute we dominated the game and on a different day could and should have been 3/4 goals up before we let Saltney back into it, credit to them as always they didn't give up, I felt we deserved something from the game but we maybe didn't get that little bit of luck needed but it wasn't to be our day so we pick ourselves up and look to bounce back next week"
