Val­ley beat pace­set­ters to climb to sec­ond place

Bangor Mail - - SPORT -

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.
