Premier Division

Gwalchmai 10 Amlwch Town 2

Gwalchmai made it the perfect 10 today in more ways than one!

Not only did Craig Evans’ side record a 10-2 success over Amlwch, the Maes Meurig outfit also completed 10 wins in a row across all competitions.

In that 10-game winning streak, the Anglesey villagers have piled up 47 goals.

Another 10 was also reached today – that number of goals this season for hat-trick hero Connor Owen.

After three weeks without a game, it took a while for Gwalchmai to get into their rhythm.

A fantastic finish by Rob Tiesteel gave Amlwch a surprise lead in just the third minute.

However, two quickfire goals edged Gwalch ahead, one a lovely finish by Gwion Thomas and the second a penalty converted by Connor Owen after being brought down himself.

In the 39th minute, Owen converted another penalty, again after felled by a poor challenge.

Kaine Bentley then added a fourth before Amlwch pulled one back through Tomos Williams, a recent signing from Llangefni Town, close to half time.

Half-time: Gwalchmai 4 Amlwch 2

Gwalchmai started the second 45 minutes as if they had received a half time hairdryer blast from manager Craig Evans.

Bentley scored his second – and 13th of the season – before Connor Owen completed another hat-trick, then Chris Bennett made it 7-2 before 50 minutes had elapsed.

Llion Vaughan, Gwion Thomas and a lovely finish by the recently returned Marc Evans brought it up to double figures.

CPD Nefyn United 4 CPD Mynydd Llandegai 2

Ifan Gwilym Jones was on the mark twice as Nefyn scooped the win which lifted them into second place.

Dylan Sion Jones and substitute Elgan Pugh also made the scoresheet for the Penwaig, Cameron Robertson and Iwan Morris replying.

Talysarn Celts 2 CPD Aberffraw 2

After eight straight defeats Aberffraw gave their supporters a tonic by picking up just their second league point of the season.

Ashley Westwell put Berffro one-up after six minutes, but Celts equalised through Luke Baum on 13 and Aled Jones nudged the hosts 2-1 ahead at the break.

The visitors fought hard in the second half, Ywain McQuire-Jones levelling on 72 minutes, Westwell with the assist.

Despite having Mason Finn dismissed on 87 minutes for a second yellow and Iolo Jones sent off after 92 for a straight red offence, nine-man Aberffraw held on for the draw.

Division One

Llangoed & District 1 Bontnewydd 4

Unbeaten leaders Bontnewydd moved seven points clear with a convincing win at Tyddyn Paun.

Alex Kalafusz, Luke Phillips (penalty), substitute Cian Pleming and Sion Kelly put the visitors four-up before Aaron Evans replied on 88 for Llangoed.

Bethesda Rovers 1 Blaenau Ffestiniog Amateurs 2

First-half goals from Josh Wilson and Aled Ellis were enough to pocket the points for the Quarrymen.

Jamie Patterson responded for Rovers in the 81st minute, but it was too late to save the hosts, who had Lewis Dixon sent off for a second yellow after 93.

CPD Boded 7 CPD Gaerwen 4

Another career hat-trick for Chris Jones of CPD Boded

Seven heaven for Boded, who remain unbeaten and sit second, seven points behind Bontnewydd but with a game in hand.

Former Leeds United and Wrexham prospect and ex-Bangor City star Chris Jones scored twice in the first half for the hosts, Calum Thomas pulling one back before the interval.

In the second period, Casey Boylan made it 3-1 on 49 minutes, Thomas reduced the arrears with his second for Gaerwen on 56, but in no time Chris Jones celebrated his hat-trick.

A Jason Owen own goal gave Boded a 5-2 advantage, but the prolific Nathan Moore kept the Auctioneers in touch with a strike on the hour.

When Sion Jones made it 5-4 after 70, a massive finish was in store.

However, Boded saw the job through, Huw Watkins and Casey Gregg clinching the spoils with late net-finders on 83 and 85 minutes respectively.

Caergybi 0 Llanystumdwy 3

Three straight wins for Llanystumdwy, who are up to third in Division One after this excellent result at Millbank.

Owen Pritchard broke the deadlock on 64 minutes, a Jay Beck own goal made it 2-0 after 79 and Arwyn Jones added a third with 81 on the clock.

Luke Miles was red-carded for Caergybi on the 90-minute mark.

CPD Cefni 1 Holyhead Town 0

Only one goal separated the sides at Isgraig, Dion Jones striking on 43 minutes with his ninth of the season.

This was a good win for Cefni after three home defeats in a row.
