Hawarden Rangers 4 Coedpoeth United 6
Welsh National League Division One

Coedpoeth are achieving some fantastic results this season under Karl Fenlon (back row – second from right)

After four straight wins putting them top of the Division One table, Hawarden Rangers were brought crashing down to earth by a fired-up Coedpoeth.
Coedy’s first goal came from a corner, Oliver Lewis losing his marker to head home.
Rangers equalised, but then Lewis first forced a mistake from the home full-back before robbing the keeper to slot home his and the visitors’ second goal.
Curt Griffiths made it 3-1, but United switched off twice before half time and enabled Hawarden to go in level at 3-3.
Karl Fenlon’s Coedpoeth came out like a team possessed for the second half and Lewis soon completed his hat-trick.
Kevin Breeze’s corner led to Griffiths leaping like a salmon to head home number five.
Nathan Jones made it 6-3 on the counter to seal the win, a late reply from Rangers a mere consolation.

Denbigh Town 2 Llandudno Albion 3
Welsh Alliance Division One

Peter Jones was on the mark again for Albion

Following back-to-back cup defeats, Albion looked to be up against it when they travelled to leaders Denbigh for a Friday night league battle.
However, it was Darren Jones’ visiting side that took all three points and as a result temporarily climbed to the summit themselves.
After a goal-less first half at Central Park, Dan Evans fired the travellers in front only for Sion Jones to level four minutes later with a cracking strike.
Evans made it 2-1 and Peter Jones added a third for Albion before Jake Walker pulled one back in overtime for Town.

Blaenau Amateurs 0 Bodedern Athletic 4
Welsh Alliance Division One

Ricky Williams (right) will have been delighted with his Bodedern side’s result at Blaenau

Bodedern had not won away in the league this season until they broke their duck in fine style at Cae Clyd on Saturday.
Dean Redmond, Aidan Clark and Tom Wood (2) shared the goals for Ricky Williams’ men.

Mold Town United 5 Borras Park Albion 1
North East Wales League Mike Beech Memorial Trophy preliminary round

Mold were impressive 5-1 victors over in-form Borras.
Terry Nicholas, Aaron North, Brandon Jones, Stuart Hayes and Josh Williams supplied the home goals, Alex McCubbin with the sole Albion net-finder.

Holywell Town 3 Mold Alexandra 1
Welsh National League Premier Division

In what was labelled North Wales football’s match of the day, Town defeated Alex in a battle of unbeaten sides at Halkyn Road.
Mark Connolly, Shaun Tuck and Luke Edwards struck for the Wellmen, Rhys Nash replying for the Alex.

NFA 2 Mountain Rangers 1
North Wales Women’s League Division Two

NFA will never forget their fine win over Mountain Rangers

Perhaps the surprise of the season so far in the women’s game, as a Rangers side which topped the table after three big wins were defeated by a highly-motivated NFA team.
Katie Bowe fired home a 37th minute free kick to put the visitors in front with her 10th goal of the season.
NFA deservedly equalised before half time when a long range effort from Emily Jones proved too good for keeper Sara Lacey.
The hosts totally dominated the second half, Lacey producing several fine stops before the winner arrived on 73 minutes when substitute Ashleigh Mills hammered in a tremendous 30-yard strike.
