RHYL AND DISTRICT SUNDAY FOOTBALL LEAGUE REPORTS – MARCH 13

NWCFA SUNDAY CHALLENGE CUP SEMI-FINALS

FC Mally 4 (Benn Lundstram, Shaheen Ahmed, Conor Davies, Adam Hold)
Royal Oak 0

Mally reached their third final of the season to keep alive hopes of an amazing fourth quadruple in their short history.

Taking on a strong Royal Oak outfit which sits above them in the Rhyl and District League table, the Junction hosts started today’s game playing with a strong wind behind them.

Play was end-to-end and both teams had chances before Benn Lundstram skipped past the last defender and unleashed a left foot rocket from the edge of the box into the top corner for his 19th goal of the season.

The score remained 1-0 up to half time at which point captain Shaheen Ahmed was due to leave to get a flight to Copenhagen, but refused to depart until he knew the job was done.

And 10 minutes into the second half, “Twinny” rose above everyone else to head home from a corner.

Mally were now playing free-flowing football and it was not long before number three arrived, man of the match Conor Davies beating the keeper from close range and making the game safe with 10 minutes left.

The lively Adam Hold added a fourth.

Mally’s love affair with the Coast Cup continues as they seek to lift it for a record fifth time.

Winning manager Andy Colville was over the moon with his team’s performance and now looks forward to leading the pink and black army out at three cup finals.

Conwy Comrades 1 (Morgan Roberts)
Y Clwb 2 (Kyle Kelly, Max Williams)

It will be Glan Conwy versus Llandudno Junction in the Coast Cup final after Y Clwb progressed to meet the Mally.

In a local derby spoiled by a strong wind, Kyle Kelly put the green and whites ahead when he finished off a fine cross from Max Williams.

Before the break, a scuffed clearance from the Comrades defence presented Williams with a half-chance, which he took well.

It was backs-to-the-wall for Y Clwb for much of the second half, but the hosts could only manage the only goal in reply through Morgan Roberts.

LEAGUE

Six Bells 6 (Macca Lewis 3, James Lodge, Tate Walker, Chris Bower)
Bar Bow 3 (Jordan Worthington 2, Macauley Taylor)

Macca Lewis notched a hat-trick for Six Bells which took him back to the top of the league goal-scorers chart on 22.

In what was a great Rhyl derby, the Bells were worthy winners, but Bow put up a fine battle.

Bow included three players who represent CPD Y Rhyl 1879 in their line-up and one of them, Jordan Worthington, put them ahead.

Lewis levelled with a header following a Cole Rich flick on.

Defender Chris Bower pocketed his first of the season to make it 2-1 Bells, Rich again with the assist.

Lewis put the hosts 3-1 up with a penalty awarded for a foul on Aaron Dodwell.

And it was three for Macca when he finished hard and low into the bottom corner after James Lodge put the skipper through.

Youngster Lodge, who stepped up to the plate well, added a goal to his assist with a header.

Goals from Worthington and Macauley Taylor got Bow back into it, but the excellent Tate Walker settled it with a 30-yard cracker to finish the scoring at 6-3.

Dodwell almost scored a flukey goal when his cross was dipping in, but keeper Ryan Fox managed to tip it away.

An after match statement from both teams warmed the heart: “Sunday league is about having a laugh with your mates and today we did that.”
