NORTH WALES COAST WEST LEAGUE REPORTS – DECEMBER 11
CPD Aberffraw 0 Bangor 1876 5
Bangor 1876 closed the gap on leaders Bodedern Athletic to two points having played a game more with Saturday’s five-goal victory at Aberffraw.
The visitors struck early when Jamie Petrie played in Chris Jones, who finished well from the right of the penalty area.
In the 11th minute, Sion Edwards swung in a corner from the left and it was met by Les Davies, whose powerful first time volley gave home goalkeeper Caron Hughes no chance.
Petrie looked set to extend the lead when he broke into the box but his effort was saved well by Hughes.
Chris Jones’ follow-up strike was cleared off the line by the home defence.
On 23 minutes, Petrie did add 1876’s third. From a central position a few yards outside of the penalty area he dribbled right and then unleashed a powerful shot from the edge of the box for undoubtedly the goal of the afternoon.
HALF-TIME: Aberffraw 0-3 Bangor 1876
Shortly after the interval, Chris Jones turned the ball home from close range following an attack down the left for his 18th goal in 16 games.
Despite conceding so early in the second period, Aberffraw remained resolute in defence for the rest of the half.
The islanders had an opportunity of their own when Nathan Moore’s left-foot piledriver was smartly saved by 1876’s debutant goalkeeper Cian Thomas.
Tom Clarke thought he had added goal number five but his header following a free-kick was ruled out due to offside.
Late on came a big bonus for 1876 fans when captain Michael Johnston side-footed home from six yards for his first goal in almost two years.
