Tigers cel­e­brate Gwynedd Cup suc­cess

Bangor Mail - - Sport -

ME­NAI Bridge Tigers are cel­e­brat­ing again thanks to a 2-1 Gwynedd Cup fi­nal win over Bro Goronwy.

The Gwynedd League cham­pi­ons showed their char­ac­ter to come back from a goal down to se­cure the vic­tory, with Jac Thomas giv­ing Bro an early cush­ion with a well-taken fin­ish af­ter 17 min­utes.

This fi­nally sprang the Tigers into life, and they lev­elled mat­ters on 29 min­utes when Dean Red­mond fired in his 38th goal of the cam­paign fol­low­ing a sus­tained spell of pos­ses­sion.

Af­ter the break saw the Tigers get their noses in front for the first time in the con­test on 68 min­utes when Owain Roberts made the most of the space af­forded to him and hit the tar­get and they held on to the lead.

Glantraeth booked their place in the Safe­flue Shield fi­nal thanks to a dra­matic 6-3 ex­tra-time vic­tory over Llanys­tumdwy.

Goals from Andy Clarke, Joe Bur­ley and Tim Ca­vanagh looked to have se­cured a fi­nal berth for the hosts, but a stop­page time lev­eller from Sion Guto, his sec­ond of the af­ter­noon, sent the con­test into an ad­di­tional 30 min­utes.

The home side dusted them­selves off and com­pletely dom­i­nated pro­ceed­ings in ex­tra-time, with a two-goal salvo from Nick Clarke and a soli­tary Sion Parry strike enough to see Traeth progress.
