Fixture Type: Welsh Premier League
Referee: Huw Jones
PORTHMADOG broke an exasperating hoodoo when they got the better of Newtown - a second half super show yielding only their second win in 12 clashes between the two teams. The Mid Wales visitors probably thought they were on to a good thing when they took a 41st minute lead.
With home centre-back Ryan Davies off the field being treated for an injury, Newtown's Craig Moses set up Richard Williams-Cooke and he netted from a few yards.
The hosts' fightback after the break was sparked by Steve Kehoe's special goal within minutes, a 25-yard screamer after a Marc Lloyd-Williams lay-off, and Newtown keeper David Jones hardly saw the ball flash past him.
Lloyd-Williams steered home Porthmadogs second goal from a 56th minute penalty after being sent sprawling by two defenders. His conversion was executed with confidence. Porthmadog's best win so far was confirmed by John Rowley, who hit the third goal on 74 minutes, courtesy of Lloyd-Williams.
