NEWFA HORACE WYNNE CUP SEMI-FINAL
Mold Alexandra Reserves 4 Halkyn & Flint Mountain 2

Substitute Luke Muia struck twice in extra time to guide Mold Alex Reserves into the Horace Wynne Cup final.

Thursday’s semi at The Globe, Buckley, was a great contest between the FAW Cymru Reserves North East mid-table side and Tier 4 North East Wales Premier Division high-flyers Mountain.

James Ratcliffe handed Mold an 18th minute lead, but the in-form Charlie Hughes soon brought Halkyn and Flint Mountain level.

There was no further score in the 90 and it was Mold replacement Muia who made all the difference in the added half-hour, netting on 102 and 120 minutes.

Visitors 1879 moved a step closer to the title after goals from Mike Walsh and Carl Lamb booked the points at The Meadows.
