SARON emerged victorious from this top-of-thetable clash, recording their ninth straight victory.
Hendy set out their stall to frustrate Saron from the off, getting bodies behind the ball and making it difficult for the hosts to create openings.
Sean tested the Hendy ’keeper with a good early shot.
The effort forced a smart save and from the resulting corner, Carwyn swung in a good cross that Curtis met at the near post with a cracking header to open the scoring.
Saron had the majority of possession and territory, but dogged defending from the visitors ensured the hosts failed to extend their lead.
Connor was a virtual spectator in the home goal during the first half, having only to deal with one shot from distance.
The second period began in similar fashion with Saron looking the most likely to score as Curtis and Ben combined well on the right to create an opening for Tizz, but he shot straight at the ’keeper.
Saron kept on pressing and when the ball broke to Rhys inside the box he fed Tizz who took his time to make no mistake and double the home advantage.
Hendy enjoyed a few rare forays into the Saron half but Callan and Nat made a couple of great covering tackles.
Late on, Hendy were awarded a free-kick on the edge of the Saron box which was hammered into the top corner, giving Garin no chance.
