A Superb hat-trick by Ryan Howells gifted Saundersfoot Sports a thrilling 3-2 victory over Neyland at the Athletic Ground.
Sam Coleman’s Sports outfit have had a brilliant start to life in the top flight, winning for the fourth time from six starts that see them in third position in the table.
Howells wasted no time at all as he scored in the opening minute, but his effort was cancelled out in the 30th minute when Nomads striker Mikey Chandler equalised with a well-placed header.
In the second half the visitors put the Nomads under pressure and were rewarded when Howells struck further goals in the 78th and 84th minutes to earn him a welltaken treble.
A minute from full time and Sean Hannon pulled a goal back with the goal of the match, the defender striking a sweet 25-yard effort that flew into the back of the net.
