Bangor progress in the cup

Bangor Mail - - SPORT -

BANGOR City Men pro­gressed in the Welsh Chal­lenge Cup with a 2-1 mid­week derby win against coastal ri­vals Llan­dudno.

Af­ter Tudno’s league 2-1 vic­tory over City just three weeks ear­lier, this was a tense af­fair un­der the flood­lights at Ys­gol John Bright.

Tom Hughes and Josh Bryce were de­nied be­fore Dave Pater­son handed City a de­served lead from close range af­ter Bryce had a shot saved.

Mo­ments later, Oli Flem­ing net­ted from a sim­i­lar po­si­tion to give the vis­i­tors a two-goal cush­ion.

How­ever, the dan­ger­ous hosts ended the half strongly and pulled one back with Martin Wil­liams’ well-placed penalty flick.

In a tight sec­ond half City held on to earn a tie at Cardiff in 2017.
