The Rooks were too hot for Tenby on Saturday as mid-table Carew gained a thoroughly deserved victory against their fourth placed derby rivals at the Gerald Hicks Recreation Ground.

Carew took the lead on 30 minutes when James Hinchliffe drilled hard and low on the diagonal which found the bottom corner of Dylan Noot’s net which gave his side a slender one goal cushion at half time.

Three minutes after the break, the Rooks doubled their lead as Connor Davies shot was parried by keeper Noot, but the 16 year old quickly followed up to head home the rebound.

Three minutes later the visitors pulled one back from a corner as former Rook Adam Muskett glanced in a near post header.

On the 70th minute mark the Rooks added a crucial third as substitute Sam Christopher made no mistake with a one-on-one with Noot, making the final score Carew 3-1 Tenby.

The Rooks are currently seven points clear of the relegation zone, while Tenby slipped to their sixth defeat of the campaign.

Carew: Tom Davies, Shaun Whitfield, Sonny Phillips (Captain), Gareth Lewis, Sam Southcott, Jonathan Bennett, Archie Smith, Connor Davies, Dylan Morgan, James Hinchliffe, Curtis Hurlow. Subs: Scott Richards, Sam Christopher, Rhys Davies.

March 30 also saw Kilgetty and Sports finish all square as bottom of the table Fishguard Sports came from behind to secure a draw against Kilgetty at the Kingsmoor Ground.

Both goals were scored in the first period; the hosts scored early through Richard Tebbutt who clinically finished from a neat Lloyd Hughes assist.

However, the Sports hit back with a goal scored by Luke Thomas which Gary Delaney set up the goal scoring opportunity.

Neither side could find an elusive winner in the second half as both settled for a point apiece: Kilgetty 1-1 Fishguard Sports.

Phil Jones’ Sports outfit are deep in trouble, will surely need a miracle if they’re going to survive in the top flight as they have five matches left to play this season.

Kilgetty are third from bottom, on the same points as fourth from bottom Pennar Robins, with six games to play.

Kilgetty: Richard Webb, Sam Lewis, Jake Proctor, Callum Proctor, Ross Hurst, Brett Evans, Phil Horsley, Richard Cope (Captain), Lloyd Hughes, Richard Tebbutt, Steve Thomas. Subs: Ryan Coleman, Henry Lawrence, Josh Bevan.

Fishguard Sports: David Pepper, Haydn Hughes, Tomas Lawrence, Anthony Couzens, Sean Thomas, Gary Delaney, Henry Sturman, Greg Hughes, Luke Thomas, Morgan Bateman, Patrick Hughes (Captain). Subs: Joshua Hancock, Joseph Griffiths.
