PICTURE by Trevor Owen shows Michael Edwards scoring for Caergybi
LLANERCHYMEDD remain top of the North Wales Coast West Division One table following their latest tier five victory.
Medd maintained their push for title glory with a 3-0 win at Bodorgan – Mark Jones at the double and Gwion Thomas scoring yet another goal, his 8th in five tier five matches this season.
Talysarn Celts bounce back from defeat last week to go second in the table on goal difference with a 4-2 win at Holyhead Town.
Town’s young star Kaine Bentley scored his 6th goal of the season to put them in front on the half-hour mark but that lead lasted just minutes before defender David Aaron Jones equalised for the Celts.
Bentley was on hand to score once more for Town just before the break however to give them the 2-1 advantage and set up an interesting second half.
Both teams fought it out well but it was the visitors who showed their class with 20 minutes to go with goals from Glyn Hughes-Thomas (70’), Garem Jones (76’) and Luke Baum (86’) ensuring the Celts go back to the top of the table for now.
Meanwhile, Caergybi remain the only unbeaten team in North Wales Coast West Division One – as a 2-1 win over Bontnewydd moved them level on points with Talysarn Celts having played two matches less.
In a feisty affair which produced four red cards it was the Anglesey club who walked away from Bont’s Cae Stanley with all 3 points.
Goal machine Louis Chapman fired Cybi in front 17mins in, popping up with his 23rd goal of the season in all competitions. Midfielder Mike Edwards doubled his side’s advantage 3 minutes before the break.
Chaos ensued late on in the second half when four players were dismissed from the field – Bont’s Cai Edwards in the 87thmin and then, having scored a penalty, Alex Kalafusz was shown a red in stoppage time. Marcus Bell and goalkeeper Dan Williams were sent off for Cybi in the dying moments.
The free-scoring Bethesda Athletic also continued their great form with a 6-0 win over Cefni. Kyle Hartleb (x2), Adrian Roberts, Noa Hughes, Sion Bullock and Osian Hughes were all on the scoresheet for Mark Hughes’ side.
Meanwhile, Sion Parry (below) celebrated a landmark 300 career goals for Llanystumdwy in their emphatic 10-2 win over Llangoed.
His opening goal of the game – a brilliant free kick five minutes in – saw him reach the incredible tally for his senior career at the age of just 24 years old.
Two more goals – including an exquisite chip followed for the forward in the match as he hit what was his fifth hat-trick in his last five tier five matches.
Anthony Williams had equalised for Llangoed immediately following Parry’s opener but a flurry of goals from Darren Parry (10’), a hat-truck from Tom Williams (12’, 17’, 39’) and strikes from Mark Godfrey (19’), Sion Parry again (27’) and captain Kyle Williams – along with another Williams goal for Llangoed made it 8-2 at the break.
A change to 4-4-2 saw Llangoed settle into the match in the second half but two great goals late on from Sion Parry and Darren Parry completed another great victory for Llanystumdwy.
They have now moved up to eighth in the table and have won their last five games, scoring an impressive 36 goals during those wins.
Cemaes Bay are up to 7th after beating 10-man Y Fali away from home.
Goals from Matty Roberts (4’, 40’) and their hat-trick hero of last week Matty Reynolds (20’) put the visitors 3-0 up at the break.
18-year-old debutante Cai Miller gave Y Fali hope on the hour-mark but midfielder Ryan Folksman restored Cemaes’ 3-goal cushion soon after.
Fali captain Mark Hamblin was then dismissed with fifteen minutes of the match remaining before Reynolds added another goal late on – his eighth in 6 appearances since moving to The Bay.
Mountain Rangers returned to league action for the first time since the start of July with a 3-2 win over Bethesda Rovers at Cae’r Gors.
Gavin Owen’s goal 19mins in for Rangers was the only difference at the break but the game really came to life in the second half.
Tom Philp and Aled Rice put the home side 3-0 up before Rangers also missed a penalty.
An Osian Price penalty and a goal from Lewis Jones pulled Rovers back into the tie at 3-2 but Rangers held out to win their second game this season and moved up to 14th above Llangoed in the table.
