NORTH WALES COAST WEST LEAGUE
Trearddur Bay 6 Llanrug United 4
Four goals from the unstoppable Asa Thomas helped Trearddur Bay make it a magnificent seven straight wins at the expense of Llanrug in a cracker at Lon Isallt.
Thomas’ tally is now 24 for the season, 295 for Bay and 681 in his senior career – he is a true North Wales phenomenon.
With both sides on 18 points and in the top four heading into Saturday’s clash, a good contest was expected – and it certainly was that.
Conditions were wet and windy and it was the home side that started with the breeze behind them.
Bay pushed for an early goal and a mix up between the Llanrug keeper and a defender let Thomas in on the 18th minute.
It didn’t stay 1-0 for long as a great passage of play from Llanrug led to an equaliser scored by Jamie McDaid. Trearddur responded by dominating possession and creating a few half-chances.
There was then a crazy 10 minutes starting on the half-hour when Thomas played through Coby Doutch, who made no mistake from close range, putting the home team 2-1 up.
Four minutes later it was 2-2 with McDaid again the scorer – his 24th of the season.
It was 3-2 to the Beach Boys when Jay Gibbs played in Thomas to score, only for Llanrug to yet again level in the 40th minute through Osian Williams.
The start of the second half saw a Bay blitz. Thomas made it a hat-trick in the 49th minute with Doutch bagging his second on 52.
The islanders now looked to consolidate with the scoreline 5-3 and they were playing the ball around with some composure.
That said it was Llanrug who struck next when Osian Williams reduced the deficit to one.
Both teams now started to cancel each other out, but Bay were still creating and that paid dividends when Thomas scored his fourth on 72 minutes to clinch the points.
Cemaes Bay 3 Gwalchmai 3
All-square at School Lane between sixth-place Cemaes and current Premier leaders Gwalchmai.
Tom Wood fired Bay ahead on 14 minutes, but the visitors responded positively and Josh Owen levelled on the half-hour.
A goal from Kaine Bentley with 40 on the clock gave Gwalch a 2-1 lead at the break.
Cemaes came out all guns blazing at the start of the second half, with Wood scoring his second of the afternoon and 15th of the season immediately after the restart.
Bay edged in front when a Luke McKittrick assist set up Rhys Lloyd to score on the hour, but Bentley’s second two minutes from time salvaged Gwalchmai a point.
Menai Bridge Tigers 6 CPD Pentraeth 0
Callum Davidson’s first half hat-trick put the Tigers well on their way to an emphatic triumph over island rivals Pentraeth.
Dean Redmond, Sion Hogan and Darren Gowans provided the assists for the goals.
After the break. Gowans and Hogan netted on 54 and 60 minutes respectively and Callum Thomas made it six on 69.
Blaenau Ffestiniog Amateurs 5 Holyhead Town 1
Tomos Williams delivered a double as Blaenau recorded their biggest league win of the campaign.
Having already won 5-2 at Holyhead Town in the NWCFA Junior Challenge Cup in September, the Quarrymen approached Saturday’s rematch at Cae Clyd with confidence.
Williams notched the only goal of the first half, but Blaenau turned up the heat after the break, Sion Roberts making it 2-0 just three minutes in.
Jack Diamond added a third on 77, Williams completed his brace on 80 and Sior Jones put the hosts five-up with 82 gone.
Paul Williams pocketed a consolation for the Harbourmen in added time.
Caergybi 2 CPD Mountain Rangers 3
Alan Mark Owen plundered a 92nd minute winner for Rangers – then was sent off soon after for a second yellow card.
Nonetheless, Owen’s late strike proved enough to clinch the points for the visitors.
Caergybi led 1-0 at the interval courtesy of a Jake Chapman goal on 35 minutes.
The score was unchanged until the 70th minute when Elis Hughes equalised. Just a minute later, Stuart Cooke put the visitors in front.
When Owain Roberts made it all-square on 83, the hosts looked to have done enough to secure a point, but the prolific Owen had other ideas.
Llangoed and District 3 CPD Cefni 4
Andy Williams 80th minute stunner banked all three points for Cefni in a seven-goal thriller at Tyddyn Paun.
The visitors dominated the first 20 minutes with numerous chances created but not taken.
However, on 22 minutes, a cross from the right from Nathan Lewis took a wicked deflection off the back of Llangoed defender Sam Kunduz and floated past stranded keeper James Partis into the net.
To their credit, the Puffins fought back admirably and goals from Charlie McKenna and Carwyn Williams put them 2-1 up at the break.
A half-time roasting from the manager ensured Cefni came out for the second period highly motivated.
In the 51st minute, skipper for the day Huw Jones hit an astonishing effort from halfway which went in off the bar.
Then on 57, Cefni man of the match Andy Williams successfully chased down what looked like a lost cause, dribbled the ball into the box and unselfishly set up Dion Jones for a tap-in.
Again, the visitors could not hold on to their lead. On 67, a penalty conceded by Huw Jones was converted by Jay Finter – 3-3.
Both teams had further chances to score, but on 80 minutes Williams received the ball with his back to goal, turned and unleashed a 20-yard corker into the top corner of the net.
