North East Wales League Veterans Championship Division
Mochdre Sports 2 Penmaenmawr Phoenix 3
A five-goal cracker ended up going Penmaemmawr Phoenix’s way.
This Championship derby produced a good standard of football considering the pitch, which was heavy underfoot and the game might have been called off on another day.
Pen controlled large periods of the first half and took the lead through a lovely left-footed half volley from Richard Roberts into the bottom corner.
Mochdre got level through some neat play ending in a Chris Patrick goal before Jacob Griffiths put Pen back in front with a nice finish into the top corner of the net.
Sports battled and got on top in the second half, pulling themselves level for a second time through Patrick.
The game was decided with a clever assist by Richard Roberts and Neil Picton made no mistake with a clean finish.
The match ended 3-2 and was played in a fine spirit between two good sets of lads.
Shotton Steel Vets 0 Caerwys Vets 3
Champions Caerwys took the spoils thanks to a hat-trick from the prolific Antony Weardon at Rowley’s Drive.
It is always a tough battle against Shotton, but Weardon’s finishing was the difference between the teams.
