NORTH WALES COAST WEST LEAGUE – REPORTS, NOVEMBER 6
Bangor 1876 10 (Galeotti 10 & 39; Corey Jones 45, Edwards 57, Roberts 65, L Davies 73, Culshaw 75, Clarke 76 & 86; Ashworth 87)
Amlwch Town 0
Table-toppers Bangor 1876 will aim to extend their lead to four points when they welcome Nefyn United to Treborth this Friday (November 12, 7.30 pm).
Unbeaten 1876 have played the Penwaig just once in a competitive game, beating them 3-1 at home in a Gwynedd League tussle back in August 2019.
This was early in the 2019-20 campaign, which was cut short due to coronavirus.
Both sides are faring well in the new North Wales Coast West Premier, fan-owned 1876 sitting at the peak and Nefyn in fourth.
Last Saturday saw Bangor in ruthless form as they whipped Amlwch Town 10-0.
With 10 minutes gone, Les Davies’ header provided Harry Galeotti with a close range chance that enabled him to open the scoring.
Luke Bansal in the visitors goal denied the hosts further reward until the 39th minute, when Galeotti rounded the keeper and applied a calm finish following a quick counter attack.
Ryan Rowlands had a good opportunity to bring his side back into the game when clean through on goal a minute later.
However, Ben Heald saved well with his feet and the ball went narrowly wide for a corner.
Close to the interval, new signing Sion Edwards twisted and turned on the left hand side before firing in a well-directed cross that enabled Corey Jones to net from close range.
Half-time: Bangor 1876 3-0 Amlwch Town
Twelve minutes into the second half 1876 found the net again with a goal of real quality via new arrival Edwards.
The ball was laid off to him by Davies and the left winger shimmied on the edge of the area before beating his man and firing in a powerful shot that made it 4-0.
On 65 minutes, Shaun Lock swung in a well-placed cross from the left to the back post where Sam Roberts converted with a powerful downward header.
During the final 20 minutes, there was a late flurry of further goals.
Top-scorer Davies made it 21 goals for the season when he headed in an Edwards corner before Joe Culshaw added a seventh via a shot from the edge of the area.
Tom Clarke strode forward in the 76th minute and unleashed a powerful shot from over 25 yards that gave the visiting keeper no chance.
Bansal pulled off a miraculous save from a Cameron Barry header before Clarke made it 9-0 with a header that delivered him an eighth goal this term.
It became double figures after Sam Ashworth scrambled the ball in from close range after Bansal had saved a shot from Jamie Petrie.
Bodedern Athletic 2
Bodedern made it a magnificent 12 straight victories thanks to Casey Gregg’s late winner against tough opponents Penrhyn at Cae Ty Cristion.
Tom Wood scored first for Ricky Williams’ side on 55 minutes before Steven Jones levelled on 67 after Carl Jones saved an initial penalty.
Then substitute Gregg’s superb strike on 78 minutes won it for Boded.
This match was reported in more detail elsewhere on Grassroots North Wales.
Llanrug United 4
Veteran Jonny Sadler scored all four goals for Llanrug in a fine victory at Cae Cynlas.
Berffro led 2-0 through Kyle Murphy and Richard Roberts, but Sadler replied before the break, then added three more goals in the second half.
Elliott Breaks gave Gwalchmai a 23rd minute lead, but Dion Evans equalised in first half injury time and Arwel Williams bagged a 79th minute winner for the visitors.
Mark Jones and Gethin Trenholme both delivered doubles in this commanding victory for third-place Pwllheli.
Jordan Roberts, Jac Williams, Lukas Baltovic and Jason Banks added singles for the visitors.
Cian Lewis-Davies, Cai Evans Hughes and Leon Owen hit back for Pentraeth, who were level at two-apiece come half time and reduced the deficit to 4-3 in the second period before Pwll pulled clear.
Nefyn United 1
After a goal-less first half which saw Llanberis’ Gethin Wakeham miss a penalty, both sides went on to net one apiece in the second 45.
Ifan Mansoor put the Darans one-up on 49, but Guto Sion Roberts equalised after 76.
Nefyn’s Daniel Roberts was dismissed for a second yellow deep into added time.
Holyhead Town 5
Bethesda Rovers 1
After eight straight defeats Town delivered some cheers for their fans with a 5-1 drubbing of bottom side Rovers.
The Harbourmen had not won a match since enjoying a 5-2 success – also against Rovers – back in August.
Ian Williams (2), Andy Hill, Ryan Heywood and Kaine Bentley shared the home goals.
Paul Williams provided two assists, Hill, Charlie Diamond and Brett Barker one apiece.
Reece Williams supplied the away goal.
Cemaes Bay 4
Sam Wiltshire and Matty Reynolds both struck twice as leaders Cemaes made it nine wins on the bounce and 13 games undefeated.
The ever-consistent Sion Parry replied for Llanystumdwy with his 26th league goal of the campaign and 29th in all competitions.
Bethesda Athletic 1
Noa Hughes notched the 17th minute goal which proved enough to win the game for Bethesda and edge them up to third.
Talysarn Celts 3
Luke Baum (2) and Glyn Hughes-Thomas ensured second-place Talysarn made it six matches unbeaten following an impressive win over Llanfairpwll.
Mountain Rangers 1
Connor Rees’ pair of net-finders made sure Bodorgan took the spoils at Cae Gors.
Rees made it 1-0 at half time, but Rangers’ hopes rose when Stuart Cooke converted a penalty awarded for a foul on Osian Evans.
Keenan Latham’s pass set up Rees for the winner.
Man of the match for Rangers was young defender Thomas Philp.
