Bulls edge a seven-goal thriller against bat­tling vis­i­tors

Bangor Mail - - SPORT - Anglesey League

BRYNGWRAN Bulls edged a 4-3 thriller against Mynydd Llan­de­gai Re­serves in the Kon-X Anglesey Foot­ball League.

The vis­i­tors took a 10th-minute lead through Al­wyn Roberts, but James Ryan soon equalised with a shot from the edge of the box.

Bulls charged ahead when Dy­lan Jones, 20 yards out, chested down and volleyed pow­er­fully into the net.

Un­daunted, back came Mynydd and Lewis Hall struck to make it 2-2.

De­spite the ter­ri­ble con­di­tions both sides were play­ing good foot­ball and the hosts took a stran­gle­hold on the game when they went 4-2 ahead.

Dale Jones net­ted the third and Ryan, with close con­trol, made space for him­self to slot home.

How­ever, Mynydd re­fused to give in and af­ter David Hayes pulled one back from the penalty spot, Bryngwran were forced to hold on.

Llan­goed top the ta­ble on goal dif­fer­ence af­ter a 3-1 vic­tory at Val­ley.

Af­ter a goal­less first half, dur­ing which both teams strug­gled to cope with the blus­tery and show­ery con­di­tions, the qual­ity of play improved af­ter the break.

The vis­i­tors opened the scor­ing when Rhys Jones re­acted quick­est to side­foot home from a goal­mouth scram­ble.

Within five min­utes Val­ley were level when they awarded a free-kick and Mark Ham­blin’s shot bounced off the ball to Danny Roberts, who wasted no time in drilling the ball home.

Llan­goed edged back in front with a goal of qual­ity.

Mathew Owen hit a power strike from 25 yards which looked to be go­ing over un­til it dipped, hit the un­der­side of the bar and bounced down into the net.

Craig Jones sealed the points with a third for the trav­ellers.

Holy­head Town de­feated Bryngwran Bulls 3-2 last Thurs­day.

In the 25th minute Tom Hadley was fouled in the box and Barry Haigh put Town one up from the penalty spot.

Ten min­utes later Haigh was de­nied by a good save, but Hadley tapped in the re­bound.

Bulls hit back with a fine in­di­vid­ual ef­fort from Jon Jones, but on 66 min­utes it was 3-1 when Leeroy Parry’s invit­ing ball re­leased Haigh to fire past the keeper.

Bryngwran hit back through Ryan but Holy­head took the points. Re­sults (Au­gust 16 and 17):
