A 90th minute decider from Anthony Jones sealed the win which moved Kinmel Bay up to third and ended leaders Llannefydd’s unbeaten league record.

Bay took the lead in the 20th minute through Kieran Ellis and remained in front up to half time.
Llannefydd pushed hard for an equaliser in the second half and eventually this came in the 73rd minute via Llion Morris.

Both teams gave everything in search of a winner, close teamwork combining with skill and determination, and a headed goal in the 90th minute from a stunning Ellis throw-in was converted by Jones.

Prestatyn Sports 2 (Jacovelli 49, Jones 87)
Penmaenmawr Phoenix 0

Five wins out of five for Sports who are second in the table just a point behind leaders Llannefydd with two games in hand.

John Hargreaves and Sion Williams’ side took on a very good Pen team at The Meadows.

In a very equal first half both teams seemed to cancel each other out, although Sports had the better of the chances.

The home side came out much stronger for the second half. After a great spell of pressure in and around the Phoenix box, a 49th minute cross from the right was deflected into the path of Antonio Jacovelli, whose shot was part-saved by keeper Jonny Sweetser-Hawkes, but the ball still crossed the goal-line.

Pen hit back with some good opportunities on the break, but they were unable to take any of them.

Sports changed formation on 70 minutes and seemed to have a better attacking threat, with Darren Cassidy and Ian Griffiths pulling the strings up front.

Three minutes from time, the ball was picked up by Michael Jones, who beat two men and fired low into the bottom corner from about 20 yards.

Meliden 5 (Roberts 5, Cairns 15 & 30, Newell 73 & 82 pen)
Glan Conwy 2 (Jones 76, Phillips 80)

In just their second league match of the season Meliden made it a pair of wins at the expense of Glan Conwy at The Mine.

Although the visitors started brightest, the hosts took the lead out of the blue when Joe Roberts, who was on the touchline, played the ball in from long range out on the right and managed to lob the keeper Sam Tidswell to make it 1-0.

James Cairns then added a double, shooting home from the edge of the box before finishing off a Joe Newell assist to make it 3-0 by the half-hour.

After a quiet opening to the second half, Luke Astley played in Newell who put away Meliden’s fourth.

The hosts then switched off, allowing Jamie Jones and Jordan Phillips to grab two quick goals for the away side.
Meliden got the final goal of the game when Newell tucked away a penalty.

MoM: Sam Haddon (Meliden).

CPD Y Rhyl 1879 5 (Lloyd 17, C Roberts OG 48, Ellis pen 50, Cain 67, Buhalfaia 86)
Bro Cernyw 2 (I Roberts 33 & 62)

The hosts overcame a spirited bottom side to make it two wins and a draw from their three league matches to date.

Dan Lloyd put the home side 1-0 up after 17 minutes, but the visitors levelled through Ianto Roberts before the break.

The second half was a completely different story as Rhyl got a stroke of good fortune on 48 minutes via a freak own goal from defender Colin Roberts.

Two minutes later striker Lee Ellis slotted home with aplomb from the penalty spot with his first goal since signing for the club after Tom Cain was barged over in the six-yard area making it 3-1.

Cernyw’s Roberts scored his second of the game on 62 minutes, but Cain restored the two-goal cushion, smashing home from the edge of the area after Miles Todd’s header was cleared off the line.

A well-worked move involving Ellis, who looked dangerous throughout the game and the tireless Cain, was finished off by Eamon Buhalfaia making it 5-2 with only minutes to go.
