FRIDAY night’s action in North Wales Coast West Division One provided some stunning goals.

Dale Moffat’s Caergybi team bounced back from their midweek 5-2 defeat to league-leaders Llanerchymedd to beat Bodorgan 4-2 away.

Tom Hadley netted first for Caergybi from a Rikki Jones assist just 8mins in and the scoreline remained 1-0 through to the break.

Bod replied almost immediately after the restart through when Connor Rees assisted Aaron Davies for an equaliser.

But it wasn’t long before the visitors were back in front again, Glenn North setting up Sion Thomas for 2-1 on 55mins.

Cybi top scorer Louis Chapman, who was captain on the night, hit his 33rd goal of the league campaign to give his side a two-goal cushion with 18mina left.

But a Luke Winter penalty conversion four minutes later set up a tense closing stage.

However, Caergybi certainly saved the best of the bunch of goals for last when Mike Edwards provided this stunning free-kick (below) two minutes from time to secure the 3 points for the visitors.

Bodorgan once again put up a great fight in this one but unfortunately saw coach John Webster dismissed by referee Robin Williams in the dying moments of the game.

Elsewhere, Cemaes Bay leapfrogged Talysarn Celts back up into third place as they beat Llangoed 5-1 under the School Lane lights.

Sam Wiltshire was first on the scoresheet, firing home his 10th goal in all competitions this season from close range on 17mins.

A brilliant ball over the top from midfielder Ryan Folksman then found Bay captain Keenan Downey who finished well for what was also his 10th goal of the season in all competitions on 26mins.

Fellow midfielder Luke McKittrick then hammered home a powerful effort from outside of the box to make it 3-0 just before half time (video below).

In the second half, substitute Kieran Murphy pulled one back for Llangoed (71’) before veteran forward Andy Williams, 40, scored his first Cemaes goal since recently returning from a long-term injury on 75mins.

Winger Matty Roberts completed the scoring on 89mins with a fine finish and his 15th goal of the season.
