REPORTS

What a dramatic afternoon on the women’s football scene!
Comebacks galore and one or two surprise results.

GENERO ADRAN NORTH

Wrexham 5 Llandudno 3

Leading 3-1 at the interval, Llandudno were overrun in the second half and ended up suffering their first league defeat.

Wrexham took a ninth-minute lead through former Tudno striker Rosie Hughes, but goals from Sioned Phillips, Indie Hassall and Maddie Williams put the visitors in control at the halfway stage.

Midway through the second half it remained 3-1, but then Libby Mackenzie gave the home side hope by reducing the arrears.

Tonicha Dickens equalised with eight minutes left, then Hughes edged Wrexham back in front in the 90th minute.

Rebecca Pritchard ensured a home success by making it 5-3 seven minutes into added time.

Llanfair United 3 Pwllheli 0

Tonicha Lloyd, Mary Bailey and Dotty Evans bagged the goals which earned improving Llanfair three points at Mount Field.

It was a third straight defeat for a Pwllheli side whose form has gone off the boil.

NORTH WALES WOMEN’S LEAGUE

Amlwch Town 11 Welshpool Town 1

Five goals from the dazzling Tesni Hughes was the highlight of an Amlwch display which put the Anglesey side top of the North Wales League.

With leaders Bangor 1876 beaten and CPD Y Rhyl 1879 held at home, Town took advantage by hitting 11 past Welshpool and reaching the summit.

Amlwch started like a train, scoring five in the first 12 minutes.

Hughes, an 18-year-old prospect who is also a pop singer, was in tune from the start with an early double, while Lowri Thomas, Emma Roberts and Sara Furlong also hit the target.

The visitors responded with a penalty, but Furlong struck again before half time to match the two goals she netted at Welshpool at the start of the season.

The goals continued to flow in the second half, Emily Ridges making it 7-1 before Hughes completed a hat-trick and added two more to make it 10 and five for herself.

Fittingly, inspirational skipper Carol Lewis had the last word with goal number 11.

CPDM Bangor 1876 2 NFA 6

Sweet revenge for NFA as they won by the same score they lost to against 1876 at home on the first day of the campaign.

Emily Jones grabbed a hat-trick for the visitors, while Stella Windsor, Sade Benjamin and Georgia Spibey added singles.

Jordan Roberts and George Bain hit back for the overnight leaders.

Llangefni Town 2 Holywell 2

For the second time this season, Holywell led 2-0 on Anglesey and looked set for a first-ever win only to be pegged back and forced to accept a draw.

Zoe Stopford edged the Wellwomen in front with a 55th minute penalty and when Courtney Lancaster made it two on 88 it looked like game over.

However, Llangefni’s never-say-die attitude served them well again.

In the 94th minute, Eleanora Coulson made it 2-1 and then on 96, Tasha Jones scored from the penalty spot to rescue a dramatic point.

CPD Y Rhyl 1879 2 Northop Hall 2

Holly Mayers scored twice to earn Northop Hall a share of the points at unbeaten Rhyl 1879.

Laura Williams gave the hosts an 11th minute lead, but Mayers levelled just before the interval.

Rachael Nattrass made it 2-1 to 1879 on 64 minutes, but Mayers delivered a 90th minute leveller on an afternoon of dramatic finishes in the league.
