Porthmadog into top five and chasing sixth win in succession
PORTHMADOG will have a sixth straight win in their sights when Guilsfield visit Y Traeth this Saturday (2.30pm).
Craig Papirnyk’s side rose to fifth in the Huws Gray Alliance with a 3-0 home win over Penrhyncoch last weekend.
In the sixth minute an excellent diagonal ball from Ifan Emlyn found Josh Banks racing down the left and Joe Chaplin was unlucky to see his header go the wrong side of the post.
Sion Bradley was denied by a fantastic stop from Leigh Jenkins before the hosts edged ahead after 21 minutes.
Skipper Rob Evans ended a mazy run by slipping a ball forward to Bradley, who turned well and netted with a low shot from eight yards.
Penrhyn came out of their shells and were almost gifted an equaliser when Jon Evans was through on goal, but Richard Harvey went down well to save.
Early in the second half it needed d a clearance off the line from Ifan Emlyn to prevent a Liam Lewis s equaliser.
● Iwan Lewis From the short
scored the corner that followed,
third for Evans broke into the
Porthmadog box and forced Harvey into an excellent save.
A Julian Williams shot from 18 yards, well stopped by Jenkins, was the precursor for a two-goal blast which sealed the three points.
After a good Port move down the right, the cross found Chaplin in the box. He held up for Williams, who laid the ball back for Emlyn, and he crowned a great afternoon’s work with a fine low shot from 20 yards into the corner of the net.
Five minutes later, Jenkins failed to hold a powerful Williams 18-yarder and Iwan Lewis, playing his first game of the season, was on hand to net from close range.
