Caergybi 1-3 Llanfairpwll
Cybi’s Anglesey League title hopes took a huge blow on Saturday as Llanfair pulled off a stunning victory at Millbank.
Man of the Match Callum Jones had fired Spud Thomas’ side in front in the first half. Then, two penalties from Shaun Morris, who rarely misses from the spot, put them 3-0 up late on in the second half. Liam Williams’ strike was nothing but a pure consolation for Dale Moffat’s side who now seemingly need a miracle to be crowned champions.
It’s fair to say that Llanfair have improved greatly over their last 3 matches and look as though they can end their season on a high. There was some good news for Cybi after the game too as they confirmed that striker Gary Jo Owen, who bagged 59 goals for the club last season and 16 in just 4 matches before leaving for Holyhead Town last September, re-signed with the club, where he will once again play alongside brothers Liam and Casey Williams.
Arriva Bangor 5-2 Cemaes Bay
A Scott Hughes hat-trick kept Arriva’s title bid alive as The Busmen cruised to a win at home to Cemaes.
Darren Edmunds and Ben Hulse were also on the score sheet as Kevin Jones’ side kept the pressure on Bryngwran Bulls. Arriva now sit five points behind the league leaders with five games to go in their case and three for The Bulls.
The last time Arriva and Cemaes met, it was the latter who came out on top with a 3-1 win, however, it just wasn’t to be for Darren Hughes’ side this time around.
Pentraeth Reserves 6-4 Valley (AET)
The Reserves reached the final of the Megan Cup as they came from 4-2 down at half time to beat Valley in a thriller.
Mike Williams (2), Paul Williams and Marc Wilson had put Dan Jones’ side in the driving seat, or so it had seemed. However, it was Pentraeth defender Matt Williams who eventually proved to be the ultimate hero on the day, bagging a hat-trick. Captain Tom Jones was at the double and young midfielder Dylan Jones was also on the score-sheet as Pentraeth completed an incredible turnaround in Extra Time.
The win was a testament to just how far The Reserves have come under the management of Danny Jones and Paul Matier, who took over at the beginning of the season, bringing several of their Dreigiau Pentraeth (Sunday League) players along with them for the ride.
