3:01pm Wednesday 23rd October 2013 in Sport
THREE goals in the last ten minutes gave league leaders Narberth a rather flattering victory against Neyland at Jesse Road.
The visitors took the lead twice, but in the end Dai Davies Nomads ran out of steam after playing so well.
Patrick Bellerby headed home the opener in the 10th minute, the striker latching onto Sean Hannon's free-kick in the box.
Six minutes later and Aled Thomas found the bottom corner of Patrick Hannon's net to level matters at half time.
In the 72nd minute the visitors regained the lead with a goal scored by Niall Day, the ball came off the crossbar and substitute Day made no mistake with the rebound.
Player boss Matthew Price drilled home an 80th minute equaliser, six minutes later and Marc Hughes gave the Bluebirds the lead, the midfielder making no mistake following a goal-mouth scramble.
Price converted a penalty and also drilled in a sweet left-foot strike to complete his hat-trick and ensured his side stay three points clear at the top of the table of the chasing pack.
