Porth­madog into top five and chas­ing sixth win in suc­ces­sion

Caernarfon Herald - - SPORT -

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.
