Thriller for fans with 34 goals in five games

Bangor Mail - - SPORT -

LEAD­ERS Me­nai Bridge Tigers main­tained their per­fect record in the Cartrefi Cy­munedol Gwynedd League with a sixth straight vic­tory as they saw off vis­i­tors Talysarn Celts 4-1.

Dean Red­mond was a hat-trick hero for the is­lan­ders, who bounced back from the previous week­end’s nar­row 3-2 Welsh Cup loss at Holy­head Town.

From the off last Satur­day, Celts were on the de­fen­sive and tried to hit the Bridge on the counter at­tack.

The dead­lock was bro­ken on 20 min­utes, when Sion Ho­gan was shoved off the ball in the box and the ref­eree had no op­tion but to point to the spot.

Red­mond sent the keeper the wrong way and it re­mained 1-0 up to half time.

Just be­fore the hour, Tigers won a cor­ner and Ho­gan rose higher than every­one to head home.

Soon af­ter, sub­sti­tute Cal­lum David­son burst down the flank and pulled the ball back to the penalty spot, where Red­mond took a touch and sent the de­fender the wrong way be­fore calmly slot­ting past the keeper.

In the 66th minute, Red­mond raced in on goal and had his heels clipped – an­other clear penalty.

Up stepped Red­mond to com­plete his third hat-trick for the club.

Jac Jones scored a con­so­la­tion goal for Celts from a cor­ner.

Glantraeth romped to a 6-1 suc­cess at Bont­newydd, Andy Clarke and Tom Hadley net­ting two apiece. Ben Roberts and Dion Wil­liams were also on the mark, David Carl Jones with a 90th minute re­sponse.

Car­wyn Wil­liams hit four as Llan­goed chalked up a 6-1 re­sult at Llanys­tumdwy, Llion Roberts and To­mos Lewis adding one each, Dar­ren Parry re­spond­ing for the hosts.

Mynydd Tigers’ first game in the Gwynedd League was not a mem­o­rable ex­pe­ri­ence as they crashed 7-0 at home to Ne­fyn United, Jos Lloyd Jones (3), Daniel Roberts, Jack Wil­liams, Guto Roberts and Mark Dunn shar­ing the Pen­waig’s tally.

Mark Grif­fith was a hat-trick star as Gwalch­mai reg­is­tered a 6-2 win at Waun­fawr on this day of big away team scores. Corey Sin­nott (2) and Gwion Thomas notched the rest, Ioan Gwynedd and Adam Lloyd hit­ting back for the Be­gan­ifs.

In all, the league pro­duced 34 goals across five games – good en­ter­tain­ment value.
