Bangor Mail - - Funeral Notices - Foot­ball

struck level right on the stroke of half-time.

A free kick con­ceded on the left hand edge of the Bangor penalty area was whipped in with both power and pre­ci­sion by Gareth Jones-Evans to give Leon Jones very lit­tle chance and en­sured that both teams headed into the dressing rooms level at one goal apiece.

The all-im­por­tant break­through for Bangor ar­rived on 72 min­utes in a car­bon copy of the open­ing goal.

Dy­lan Williams was the provider this time as he sent a low, pow­er­ful ball across the six-yard line which Lloyd grate­fully pounced on at the far post for a 2-1 lead.

Bangor in­creased their ad­van­tage al­most im­me­di­ately as Man of the Match Lloyd turned provider with a de­liv­ery from the left that found Cameron Barry and the young mid­fielder made no mis­take to beat Fletcher. AML­WCH Town were on the re­ceiv­ing end of an up­set as Vale of Cl­wyd and Conwy League side Llan­dudno Ath­letic beat them in a thrilling FAW Tro­phy tie 6-5.

Ryan Row­lands (2), Chris Byast, Dan Jones and Josh Grif­fiths scored Town’s goals but Ryan Jones (2), Matty McEl­roy (2), Lee Stokes and Paul Is­sacs clinched vic­tory for the Conwy side.

There was an­other shock as Welsh Al­liance Divi­sion Two knocked out a Divi­sion One side as Gaer­wen beat Glan Conwy 2-0 at Lon Groes, Andy Wannop and Shaun Mon­u­ment with the home goals.

Me­nai Bridge Tigers won 3-2 at Mynydd Llan­de­gai, Cal­lum David­son (2) and Dave Bas­ton for the An­gle­sey side, Wyn Mor­ris and Tom Collins scor­ing for the home side.

Holyhead Hot­spur needed ex­tra time to over­come rank out­siders Aberffraw 2-1.

The vis­i­tors, who are strug­gling in the Welsh Al­liance Divi­sion Two without a point, led 1-0 at half time through Geraint Jones and be­fore Corey Jones lev­elled for the hosts.

Robert Jones scored the win­ner in ex­tra time for the Welsh Al­liance Divi­sion One high-fly­ers.

The pro­lific Dean Red­mond made it eight goals in as many games for Bodedern Ath­letic this sea­son with a dou­ble in a 3-0 win against Glantraeth with Tom Wood also on tar­get.

Llan­fair­p­wll were beaten 5-0 at home by Llan­dudno Junc­tion as Jack Williams (3) and Liam Jones (2) scored for the vis­i­tors.

Gareth All­man put Gwalch­mai ahead at Bar­mouth and Dyf­fryn, but Ieuan Brooks equalised and it went to ex­tra time be­fore Billy Jones clinched vic­tory for the Gwynedd side with 117th minute win­ner to make it 2-1.

There was only one game in the Welsh Al­liance last week­end and that was in Divi­sion Two as Pentraeth were beaten 5-4 at home in an­other thriller by Llan­dudno Am­a­teurs.

Jack Walsh (2), Gethin Moore and Aled Jones scored for the An­gle­sey hosts but Scott Court, Nathan Bridges, Luke O’Ma­honey, Ai­dan Bell and Stephen Pen­rose sealed the win for the vis­i­tors.
