It's a horror story as Bridgend are out; CC SPORTS WELSH LEAGUE.

TROUBLED Bridgend Town's problems mounted yesterday as they crashed out of the newly-named Cynffig Motor Factors Cup in the first round.

The club, in dire jeopardy following the shock resignations of all three directors, were soundly beaten 3-0 at Coychurch Road by Garden Village, who play in a division lower than them in the Welsh League.

Christian Zenatti, Greg Fisher and Ryan Goddard scored the goals.

Goytre Utd, who have made a disappointing start to their league campaign, took their frustration out on Treharris as they romped to a 6-2 home victory.

James Taylor and John Keaveney led the way with two goals apiece. Richard Smith and Mark Johnson got the others, with Gavin Bishop and Dean Morris scoring for the well beaten visitors.

Garw, who have made a flying start to life in the top flight, had to pull out all the stops to overcome Risca 3-2 at Blandy Park. Phill Lions netted twice for Garw while Gareth Sage was also on target.

Pontardawe also had to work hard for a victory by the same 3-2 margin against Taffs Well, Simon Dyer scoring two and Martyn James also bagging a goal.

Geraint Williams grabbed a hat-trick as AFC Rhondda hammered Grange Quins 4-1 while Maesteg Park were far too good for Porth Tywyn and ran out convincing 5-1 winners, Kyle Charles getting a brace.

Treowen Stars player Jason Morgan was sent off in the dying minutes as his side went down 3-2 at Morriston, while Johnny Read and Neil Phillips scored for Briton Ferry in their 2-1 home win over Ely.

David Smith scored a hat-trick for Tillery in their sixth-form home success against Cardiff Corries, while on a day when surprises were few, Pontypridd produced something of an upset beating Caerleon by the only goal of the match.
