Six top performances: Llanuwchllyn, Phoenix, Gwalchmai, Llanystumdwy, Borras and Llandudno all upset odds

Llanuwchllyn produced a marvellous result against Welsh National League Premier Division leaders Brymbo

Which performances stood out on the North Wales football scene on Saturday?

Here are six of the very best….

Gwalchmai 4 Llannefydd 3 (Welsh Alliance Division Two)

Needing a win to put them top of Division Two, Llannefydd looked well placed to achieve their goal when they led 3-1 inside the last 10 minutes.

But mid-table Gwalchmai produced a remarkable comeback to grab three late goals and take all the points.

Llion Jones, Ciran Morris and Elgan Roberts had put the visitors 3-1 to the good, but Gwalch pulled it back to 3-3 before returning striker Marc Evans earned an injury time penalty which he converted himself, sealing a stunning win.

Mark Jones, Gwion Thomas and Corey Sinnott were the other home marksmen.

Bontnewydd 2 Llanystumdwy 3 (Gwynedd League)

Having ended Trearddur Bay Bulls’ perfect record last weekend with a 1-0 win over the leaders, Bontnewydd must have fancied their chances against a Llanystumdwy outfit struggling at the wrong end of the table.

However, it was the visitors who emerged 3-2 winners in a shock outcome, Guto Roberts (pen), Mark Godfrey and Louis Galvin collecting their goals.

Arguably the biggest hero for Llan was recent signing, keeper Ben Jones, who saved a penalty and the follow-up effort, and produced several other great stops.

Josh Williams and Morgan Roberts were on target for Bont, but it was not enough.

Penyffordd 0 Borras Park Albion 2 (North East Wales League Premier Cup)

It was a tremendous effort from Borras in the Premier Cup

Talking about winning against the odds!

Not only were Borras taking on a very strong Penyffordd, they had to cope with 10 men for 70 minutes after one of their defenders was forced off injured and they had no substitutes.

But Albion came up with an heroic display to record a 2-0 success.

Lewis Evans netted on 48 and 65 minutes and to round off an amazing all-round team effort, BPA goalkeeper Lewis West saved a penalty.

Llanuwchllyn 4 Brymbo 1 (Welsh National League Premier Division)

What a corker of a win this was for dark horses Llanuwchllyn against the overnight leaders.

Billy New put the visitors into a 13th minute lead, but Joe Evans soon brought things level before goals from Dave Jones, Sam Evans and Tom Jones pushed the hosts out of sight and condemned Brymbo to just their second loss of the season.

Bangor City 2 Llandudno 3 (Cymru North)

Not a massive surprise, but certainly a tremendous result for Llandudno in becoming the first team to beat Bangor City this season – and at their Nantporth fortress.

A Dean Seager spot-kick edged Tudno in front, but Aldair Neto equalised before half time.

Midway through the second period, Emmanuel Akwa-Dei made it 2-1 to the Citizens, but a Robbie Parry penalty soon squared the contest and an Alfons Fosu-Mensah strike sealed the points for the Seasiders.

Penmaenmawr Phoenix 3 Gaerwen 0 (Welsh Alliance Division Two)

Division Two table-toppers Gaerwen suffered an unexpected beating at Cae Sling.

Alfie Caldecott and a Daniel Hughes double secured the honours for the home side Penmaenmawr against a team which won their opening five matches.
