Ton Pentre 1-5 Port Talbot: Blues run riot in the Rhondda Valleys

Port Talbot Town returned to winning ways in style on Saturday afternoon, with Paul Evans’ last game in charge ending in a whopping 5-1 win in front of a healthy number of Blues fans who made the journey east.

The home side took the lead through a Nathan Facey goal early on. The Blues levelled matters shortly after through Luke Bowen.

Bowen secured his second of the game just after the half-time break, with a ball over the top making way for him to slide an effort past former Port Talbot Town keeper Steven Hall.

A foul inside the Ton Pentre penalty area on the hour mark saw the referee point to the spot. Bowen converted the penalty with ease to seal a hat-trick.

The Blues were 4-1 ahead on 69 minutes when a Bowen shot was saved by the home keeper, with Cortez Belle putting it away on the rebound.

Bowen took advantage of a defensive blunder from the Bulldogs in the 90th minute to score his fourth of the game – making the final score 5-1 in the Blues’ favour.

The win marks Evans’ last fixture in charge of the Blues, going out in style is definitely an appropriate term in this case!
