Bodedern Athletic 3 (Asa Thomas 68, Jordan Taylor 80, Marc Evans 90 + 2)

Two late goals from Bodedern ensured they are now the only team in the North Wales Coast West Premier Division with a 100 percent record following a superb victory at Cae’r Delyn.

Ricky Williams’ side made it nine wins from as many matches at the expense of the second-placed Penwaig.

The deadlock remained unbroken until the 68th minute, when Ryan Lees fed the ball down the channel, Marc Evans controlled and whipped a delivery into the box for Asa Thomas to notch his 26th goal of the season.

Nefyn were determined to get back into the contest and equalised on 78 minutes when Dylan Sion Jones found the net.

Two minutes later, however, Jordan Taylor hit a 40-yard beauty which put Boded back in front.

Then in added time, Marc Evans proved again what an amazing goalscorer he is by latching onto a clearance and finding the net from all of 45 yards for his 29th goal of the campaign.

The celebrations from the Boded crew after the game were something else and manager Williams said joyously: “The Green Army are flying.

“Nefyn is always a tough place to go, but the lads were superb. A brilliant three points on the road.”

Penrhyndeudraeth 0
CPD Bangor 1876 0

For the first time in their short history Bangor 1876 dropped points in a league game.

Prior to Saturday’s visit to Maes-y-Parc, 1876 were played 27 won 27 over two league seasons, but lost their 100 percent record when they had to settle for a first ever draw.

Given the number of opportunities, it was a surprise the game finished goalless.

Bangor’s Jamie Petrie broke into the hosts’ penalty area inside the first five minutes but shot over. Chris Jones’ effort was saved by Robert Watson before Tom Clarke headed narrowly wide.

Midway through the opening period, the hosts had some opportunities of their own . Liam Watson headed over before Steven Jones side-footed wide.

A feature of the match was a series of long throw-ins from the returning Shaun Lock, and these resulted in a series of close shaves.

Shortly before the half hour, one trademark throw almost resulted in a goal for Harry Galeotti, but his effort was saved.

From a corner, a Les Davies header was cleared off the line before another flag-kick resulted in a Chris Jones shot being kept out by Robert Watson.

Ben Heald had to look lively at the other end, saving with his feet after Steven Jones broke into the box.

A swift counter attack four minutes before the break saw Galeotti break down the right and cross, but Chris Jones’s attempt was saved.

1876 started the second half in a determined mood, a header from Clarke landing on the top of the net before a right wing cross from Petrie struck the bar.

Penrhyndeudraeth threatened Adam Griffiths’s cross was tipped away well by Ben Heald.

Shaun Lock strode forward and unleashed a low shot from 35 yards that Watson managed to parry wide for corner. A flag-kick with 15 minutes left almost resulted in the opener for 1876 but Culshaw’s corner hit the crossbar.

Petrie went close twice before in the final minute, Davies’ powerful shot rattled the crossbar.

Petrie had a further attempt saved before Penrhyn’s Steven Jones blasted just over in added time.
