NORTH WALES COAST WEST LEAGUE REPORTS – MARCH 19
Mynydd Llandegai 1 Bodedern Athletic 1
The most prolific winning run in UK non-league football is finally over – but what a ride it has been.
Bodedern Athletic’s stunning streak of 18 successive league victories ended at Mynydd Llandegai, where the final score was 1-1.
It brought to a close an unbelievable record which put the Anglesey village club top of the Global League Stats table, published by the Non-League Matters website.
Despite today’s result, Athletic are still unbeaten in the league and remain top of the North Wales Coast West Premier Division table.
While Boded deserve all the praise in the world for their feat, a big hand too to Mynydd Llandegai, who finally found a way to stop Ricky Williams’ islanders winning.
With the wind behind them in the first half, Bodedern had loads of chances, but for once struggled to convert.
Mynydd keeper Marc Jones produced a tremendous treble save at one point. Jordan Taylor hit the bar with a free kick and Asa Thomas had a goal chalked off for offside.
Llandegai were dangerous on the counter attack and took the lead on 28 minutes with good combination play from Osian Jones and Kieran Freeman-Jones creating a chance.
Freeman-Jones’ shot/cross was deflected in by Bodedern captain, Casey Boylan.
Boylan made up for that disappointment by getting the equaliser in first half stoppage time.
In the second half, Mynydd were playing with the wind and threatened often.
However, there were no further goals and it ended all-square.
Mynydd manager Huw Davies said: “If I’m honest, we should have taken the three points today. Boded were lucky to escape with a point.
“I was disappointed with the ref – we played 12 minutes injury time in total without any real stoppages
“Pij Morris, Marc Jones and Osian Jones standout performers for us. Marc was man of the match for the important saves he made in the first half.”
Llanrug United 0 Bangor 1876 2
Two second-half goals from captain Les Davies secured 1876 the win that moved them to within two points of leaders Bodedern having played a game more.
