Cup holders Bryn opened the defence of their title with a thumping 10-1 win at Tonna.
Bryn were rampant throughout and could easily have doubled the score as they were frustrated several times.
Adam Campbell gave Bryn the lead with a superb curling shot from the edge of the area, and a terrific Darren Langford corner was bundled home to give the visitors a 2-0 lead.
Langford was again the provider when he picked out Dan Richards who scored with ease, Dave Dunnit Hornsby added the fourth with a superb volley from another Langford set piece.
Christian Jones scored his first of the season to put Bryn further ahead before the red-hot Campbell ran riot in the box to score his second for a commanding interval lead.
The second half saw Bryn in full control.
Jones scored his second with an overhead kick and Campbell doubled his tally from the penalty spot.
Richards headed home his second from an Eifion Rogers cross.

Bryn Rovers 2 FC Clydach 2
Bryn failed to capitalise on last week’s good performance as they threw away a 2-0 lead for the second week in a row.
The opening 30 minutes saw Bryn play some good football as Nick Lacey gave them the lead after rounding the goal keeper. He added a second with a really useful finish.
Clydach got back in the game with a counter attack goal and equalised from a corner following a goalkeeping error.
