Bangor 1876 5 (Leon Owens 2, Cameron Barry 2, Shaun Lock)
NWCFA Junior Cup round three – February 15, 2020
Bangor 1876 secured a visit to either Nefyn United or Llysfaen in the NWCFA Junior Cup quarter-finals after an eventually comfortable 5-0 win over Llanystumdwy in Saturday’s third round tie at Treborth.
In three previous wins over the same opponents this season, 1876 has amassed an aggregate of 30 goals and none conceded.
Saturday’s fourth meeting of the campaign with Llanystumdwy saw Mel Jones and Dylan Williams’ side without some key players, including Dylan Summers-Jones and Les Davies – a total of 68 goals between them this term – veteran defender Michael Johnston, top centre-back Lee McNulty, plus regular keeper Leon Jones.
And the first half of this tie at a windy and rainy Treborth – one of only three senior matches across North Wales to take place on Saturday – ended goal-less.
After the break the hosts upped the ante and knocked in five goals without reply.
The challenging conditions affected both teams in the opening period, with swirling winds a particular source of difficulty.
Bangor 1876 managed to hit both posts somewhat fortuitously.
On the first occasion, a floated ball into the box from Shaun Lock beat everyone and looked to be heading in before it struck the inside of the post and rolled away to safety. A cross from Leon Owens also hit the opposite upright some minutes later.
However, 1876 needed to remain alert as Llanystumdwy sought to counter attack. On one occasion, an expertly-timed challenge from Harry Jones prevented the away side’s Darren Parry from getting in a shot as he broke into the penalty area.
A key moment in the game arrived six minutes before half-time. With Shaun Lock about to take a throw-in, the referee noticed an incident in the Llanystumdwy penalty area that resulted in the visitors being reduced to 10 men.
The official sent off Mark Godfrey for violent conduct, indicating he had elbowed an opponent.
After a goalless opening period, 1876 returned to the pitch with determination to make their man advantage count and sought to move the ball more rapidly in order to create space.
Their efforts were rewarded within minutes as Leon Owens opened the scoring in the 48th minute with a right footed shot after he turned on the edge of the six yard box.
Six minutes later, 1876 doubled their advantage after an attempted cross from Shaun Lock found its way past the Llanystumdwy keeper and nestled in the top corner.
Midway through the second period, Owens scored his second and 1876’s third with the goal of the game. From 22 yards out, he managed to curl a shot into the top right-hand corner.
In the last 10 minutes, the Gwynedd League leaders added two further goals thanks to Cameron Barry.
With eight minutes left, he turned and finished well from seven yards out after the ball was cut back from the right wing by Luke Steele.
With a minute left, Barry converted from close range after the visitors failed to clear.
