Valley beat pacesetters to climb to second place
DESPITE fielding some players struggling with injuries and illness, Valley overcame the odds to defeat leaders Mynydd Tigers 3-1 and go second in the Kon-X Anglesey Football League.
Mynydd constantly pressed in the early stages, but home colossus Konnor Druce dealt with any threat and an even first half ended goalless.
Early in the second half, Valley’s Marc Wilson was through with the goal at his mercy, only to slice the ball out for a throw-in.
But the chance livened Valley up, and Justin Hughes beat three down the left before crossing for the unmarked Justin Williams to find the open net.
Minutes later Mynydd equalised through Liam Owen, but Wilson restored the home lead, cutting in from the left and firing into the top corner.
The points were sealed in injury time when a poor clearance found Nik Kontodious, who delicately chipped the keeper from 25 yards.
Arriva Bangor beat Bryngwran Bulls 3-1, Andy Clarke (2) and Scott Hughes for the winners, Andrew Bailey for the visitors.
Llangoed Reserves outscored Pentraeth Reserves 4-1. Arwyn Morris was a hat-trick hero for the home team, Wayne Thomas also on target.
Urien Elfyn scored for the away side, who finished with nine men after a red card and an injury following three substitutions.
