NORTH WALES COAST WEST LEAGUE REPORTS – NOVEMBER 13

Division One

CPD Llannerchymedd 1 CPD Mountain Rangers 0

Defender Dylan Owen notched a 90th minute winner for Llannerchymedd who moved to within a point of Division One leaders Cemaes Bay with three games in hand.

Playing their first league fixture in a month, Medd stretched their unbeaten run in the tier 5 division to 10 matches.

There was nothing much in a first half where Mountain Rangers gave as good as they got.

The hosts showed some rustiness, creating mainly just a few half-chances.

Ben Hughes went closest, denied at point blank range by visiting keeper Jason Hughes.

Dion Jones hit the post for Rangers via a free kick.

The second half was all about Llan pressure.

Hughes struck the upright from a free kick, then substitute Llion Vaughan Jones put the ball in the net after a through pass from Gethin Davies, but was adjudged to be offside.

Llion Vaughan Jones met a Gwion Thomas cross but was thwarted at the near post by a fantastic save from Hughes.

All of Llan’s efforts finally paid off with a minute to go. Gavin Sharpe sent a low cross into the box where Owen slotted home from inside the six-yard area to win the game.

Aled Rice’s last-gasp lob went close for the visitors but the ball landed on top of the net.

Llannerchymedd assistant-manager Iwan Williams said after the game: “It took time to get back into the groove and find our feet today at times after a few weeks off without a game, but credit to the lads they kept going and dug deep until the very end – fair play that pressure paid off with a crucial goal.

“Credit must go to our opponents Mountain Rangers – they battled until the very end – but we’re very happy with the result and three points that keeps us in touch with the chasing pack.”

Two sides in the lower reaches of the table shared the points.

Holyhead looked in command at half time as goals from Kaine Bentley on 20 minutes and Dan Lewis after 35 put them two-up.

However, Mathew Owen cut the arrears on 56 minutes and David Thomas popped in an equaliser after 80.

CPD Cefni 2 CPD Y Fali 2

After 10 successive league losses CPD Y Fali picked up a welcome point at Cefni.

Unbeaten in their first three outings, Fali had struggled badly since, but Saturday brought an improvement in fortunes, Morgan Jones grabbing their equaliser with a 94th minute penalty.

Cai Miller put the visitors in front on 10 minutes and that lead remained up to half time.

Four minutes into the second period, Macauley Lewis levelled, then Hugh Alan Jones made it 2-1 Cefni after 79.

It looked like more heartbreak for Fali until that late Morgan Jones spot-kick.

Premier Division

CPD Mynydd Llandegai 1 Menai Bridge Tigers 1

An early goal from the visitors and a very late one for the hosts ensured this Premier battle ended in a draw.

Craig Roberts found the net after three minutes for Menai Bridge and that looked to have settled the argument until Gerwyn Roberts made it 1-1 in added time.

CPD Pentraeth 1 Glantraeth 5

In his last game before reaching the age of 40 on Monday, Glantraeth’s Steve Smith set his team on their way to victory with the opening goal in a convincing success at Bryniau Field.

Smith broke the deadlock on 26 minutes, but things looked hopeful for Pentraeth initially when Peter Crowe equalised soon after to make it one-apiece at half time.

Glantraeth took over in the second half, Connor Gordon, Iwan Williams, Callum Hughes and substitute Harrison Wright guiding them to a 5-1 triumph.

For Pentraeth, it was a 10th defeat in a row.
