TODAY proved to be another fantastic day of football in North Wales Coast West Division One.

With plenty of goals to talk about, here’s a round-up of all the results!

Llanerchymedd stayed top of the table with a 4-1 win over Llangoed.

The visitors went into the tie having brought Caergybi’s unbeaten run in the league to a dramatic end just two weeks ago by beating them 5-2 at Tyddyn Paun.

First half goals from Gwion Thomas and James Burgess set Medd on their way before hotshot forward Anthony Williams pulled one back early on in the second half for the visitors, netting his 14th goal of the season.

Goals from Thomas (69’) again and sub Llion Jones (79’) completed the scoreline as Meirion Grieves’ side go marching on again.

Bethesda Athletic moved up to second with an 8-1 hammering of Y Fali at Cae Mwd.

Recent signing Scott Hughes (below) was on fire, scoring four goals in 9 minutes, with Joe Todd, Mark Thomas and Noa Hughes all also on target to give Pesda a 7-0 lead at the break.

Recently-appointed Fali manager Si Thomas was sent off after just 25mins also, when Pesda were 3-0 up.

In the second half, the talented Noa Hughes, who has just recently turned 16 years old, scored the eighth for the visitors before a much more stable second half performance from Fali was rewarded with a goal by Jack Halton.

Waunfawr and Llanfairpwll played out a cracker which ended in a 3-3 draw and with both teams down to 10-men with player-manager Steven Hughes sent off for Waun and Aled Davies dismissed for the visitors.

In a feisty affair, Shaun Roberts fired the Beganifs in front on 9mins before Jay Finter equalised on the half hour mark.

But Waunfawr were back in front once more just before the break thanks to a Rhys Roberts goal on the stroke of half time.

Marky Holland then continued his scoring streak to make it 2-2 on 53mins before Steven Hughes put the home side ahead for a third time with 10mins to go.

The drama continued however and battling Pwll found another way into the tie late on, Finter converting a late penalty to rescue a vital point.

Elsewhere, Bontnewydd were 4-0 victors over Bethesda Rovers whose wait for a point in the league goes on.

Osian McGuinness was at the double and an a further strike from Osian Glyn and an own goal did the damage.

Cemaes Bay picked up another 3 points and moved up to fifth in the table with a 2-0 victory at an improving Holyhead Town side.

In-form midfielder Matt Reynolds and the hard-working Luke McKittrick scored in the second half to hand them the victory and keep the 2019/20 Anglesey League champions moving on up.

Llanystumdwy left it very late to beat Bodorgan, with two late goals handing them a 3-1 victory.

Keenan Latham struck first for the visitors on 16mins, before Tomos Williams scored his seventh goal of the season to equalise for Stumdwy on the hour mark.

The match had very much looked like it was heading for a draw at Cae Dwyfor, but Stumdwy had other ideas as a 92nd minute goal from Dafydd Roberts and a 93rd minute goal from Sion Guto Jones put the dampeners on Bod’s afternoon.

Finally, Mountain Rangers picked up a big, big win as they beat Cefni 3-2 at Cae’r Gors – moving them from near the bottom of the table up to 10th.

Despite Cefni going ahead twice through Warren Fletcher and young gun Connor Roberts, Rangers hit back through an Aled Rice brace and a goal from Stuart Cooke.

Another top day of footballing action in tier five, which is quickly becoming a very competitive league indeed.
