GENERO ADRAN NORTH LEAGUE – SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 5
CPDM Y Felinheli 4 (C Evans 8, J Cain 9, Fflur Williams 61, Ffion Williams 70)
Airbus UK Broughton 0
Felinheli made it two wins out of two in the Genero Adran North this season and are yet to concede a goal.
Aaron Jones-Evans’ side looked to bounce back today after a disappointing goalless draw last weekend against CPDM Bangor in the Adran Trophy.
Bounce back they did with a convincing 4-0 win at home to Airbus that in truth should have produced a wider margin in the scoreline, but the state of the pitch didn’t help either team, especially Felin with the home side struggling to play through the mud and find the target.
Catrin Evans got the scoring under way with a pinpoint free kick from 25 yards out leaving no chance for Wingmakers stand-in keeper Lucie White.
A couple of minutes later it was 2-0, this time Jenna Allsup-Tugwell beating two defenders and setting up the on rushing Jody Cain, who rifled in her shot from all of 20 yards, again nothing the goalkeeper could have done about it.
Kelly Jones was substituted midway through the half due to being unwell and was replaced by Llio Emyr.
Felinheli kept probing and were creating chance after chance with Ffion Williams hitting the post and bar and Jordanne Greenough through on goal putting her shot inches wide. The pitch was making it hard for the home side to put their chances away and the half ended 2-0.
The second half started with the same pattern as the first with Felinheli on top and creating chances, Airbus goalkeeper White making some good saves and again the pitch influencing the home side’s finishing.
Eventually, Greenough went through on goal after some good individual work and her powerful shot was parried into the path of Fflur Williams to tuck away the third.
Felinheli rang the changes with Nel Huws, Greenough and the impressive Lois Williams all coming off with Kyla Cain, Sioned Phillips and Erin Gwilym replacing them. This didn’t seem to stem the flow and Felin kept Airbus pinned in their own half.
In the 70th minute Ffion Williams was released down the left from a great bit of skill from Catrin Evans.
Williams cut in on her right foot and rocketed her shot straight into the far corner.
Erin Gwilym unfortunately had to be replaced after only being on for a short period, Christiana Naziris taking the field instead.
Felin should have extended their lead before full time but the game finished 4-0.
Manager Jones-Evans said: “It was a tough game due to the condition of the pitch, but the football we played at times was impressive.
“Regardless of the scoreline it’s three points for us and we will hopefully build on this in the coming weeks, but first we will look forward to our Welsh Cup tie against TNS this coming Sunday.
“It’s going to be difficult but all my players are up to the task and are looking forward to putting their stamp on the game.”
Connah’s Quay Nomads 2 (Ellis 51, Hobbs 90+2)
The battle of the top two in Genero Adran North went the way of Connah’s Quay on the Treborth 3G.
In a goalless first half, Meg Robinson did well to keep out a Mel Barlow header from a Shannon Hobbs corner, while at the other end, Molly France performed marvels to deny Maddie Williams.
Robinson also stopped a Sophie Hodson effort, while Hobbs’ lob beat the keeper but came back off the post.
Just before the break it was Tudno’s turn to smack the woodwork, Stacey Tradewell’s strike nearly making it 1-0.
The deadlock was broken in the 52nd minute when 16-year-old sensation Phoebe Ellis netted with a 25-yard screamer.
The points were sealed in added time when Robinson kept out substitute Elana Harley’s strike, but Hobbs tapped in for 2-0 for her 10th goal of the season.
Llanfair United 1 (Bailey 85)
CPD Y Rhyl 1879 1 (Benjamin 89)
This game at Mount Field sprang to life in the final five minutes.
Llanfair captain Mary Bailey edged her side in front on 85, but Rhyl would not be denied as top-scorer Sade Benjamin equalised after 89 with her 13th goal of the season.
