With the clash of the top two Menai Bridge Tigers v Trearddur Bay Bulls called off, and Bangor 1876’s game at Glantraeth also postponed, the Gwynedd League lost some of its edge on Saturday.
And there was further blunting of the blade when Bro Goronwy’s game at Ogwen Tigers was abandoned after 41 minutes due to treacherous conditions underfoot. Third-place Bro led 1-0 at the time.
Nefyn United were also off the schedule due to being involved in FAW Trophy action against Denbigh Town.
However, the four matches which did go ahead produced a pleasing 26 goals.
