Matt's the way to do it as Gilfach triumph; East Divisions.

IN perfect conditions for running rugby, both title challengers in Division Two East were taken to the wire in their respective fixtures.

Gilfach Goch are still 10 points clear after a thrilling encounter with second-from-bottom Garndiffaith. No 8 Matthew Llewellyn was the star for Goch, scoring four tries, while there was also a double for centre Adrian Williams as they squeezed home 48-39.

Treorchy, who still have two games in hand on the leaders, also needed a slice of luck in an eight-try thriller at Brynmawr. Wing Chris Morris, centre Trystan Lazarus, lock Gareth Baker and full-back Andrew Malin crossed for the Rhondda side as they won 37-32.

Newport Saracens' slim survival chances were boosted as they sealed a first win since September when they welcomed Abercynon to the Newport Civil Service Ground.

No 8 Spencer Gibson and wing Dale Leith led the way for the home side with a brace of tries each as they secured a rare bonus-point victory 34-19.

Llantrisant are surely now safe after a 35-17 win over Ynysybwl. But Penallta probably need another win to ease their relegation fears after they were beaten 26-21 at home by Mountain Ash.

There is still all to play for at the top of Division Three East, where leaders Abergavenny and second-placed Fleur de Lys both picked up bonus-point wins.

At Bailey Park, Abergavenny had two Ian Davies tries to thank for in a 31-5 victory over Pontypool Utd.

Doubles for centre Ieuan Morris, scrum-half Daryl Cook and lock Wayne Sims led Fleur de Lys to an eight-try demolition of Croesyceiliog. The 56-12 victory keeps them 10 points behind with three games in hand.

Cwmbran's relegation is all but sealed after they were beaten 31-3 by Gwernyfed. Paul Morgan, a 41-year-old replacement flanker, scored a second-half hat-trick to guide the home side to victory.

An all-star show by Chris Stevens tightened Abertillery BG's grip on Division Four East. Stevens scored 28 points as they romped home 43-10.
