Welsh Alliance Roundup: Bodedern title charge continues
It was an action packed weekend in the Welsh Alliance Leagues, as Bodedern Athletic continued their push for the title.
In seven games, there were 25 goals and no draws in a weekend full of goals.
We roundup all the action.
WELSH ALLIANCE Division One
Bodedern Athletic 6-1 St Asaph City
Bodedern Athletic hammered St Asaph City to maintain their push at the top of the table, moving up to second in the league in the process. Shaun Jenkins got the hosts off to a good start with a goal after just 11 minutes, and Casey Boylan doubled the advantage in the 27th minute, before the visitors reduced the arrears just before half time, when John Terry made it 2-1. However, the second half was all one way traffic, and Casey Boylan got his second to make it 3-1 in the 53rd minute, before Shaun Jenkins also scored his second goal just two minutes later. James McMinimee made it 5-1 in the 72nd minute, with Aidan Clark completing the scoring in the 84th minute to make it 6-1 and secure the three points for the hosts.
Greenfield 3-1 Llandudno Albion
The hosts had to come from behind to secure a victory against a much-fancied Llandudno Albion side that remain in fourth place following their fourth defeat of the season. The visitors were on top in the first half, and were ahead when Peter Jones opened the scoring in the 19th minute. The second half was a very different story however, and the hosts were level in the 66th minute after Danny Calvert scored from the penalty spot, before Leon Sumner scored in the 78th and 81st minute to make it 3-1, securing the three points for the hosts who climb to seventh in the league.
Llandyrnog United 2-1 Barmouth Dyffryn
In the battle near the bottom of the table, it was Llandyrnog United who move up to twelfth in the league, and seven points clear of the bottom of the table. Connor Jones opened the scoring in the 23rd minute from the penalty spot, but Joe Ephrain equalised for the visitors in the 44th minute to ensure it was all square at the break. After half time, the game continued in much the same way as the first half, with both teams getting plenty of chances, before Connor Jones scored the winner for Llandyrnog United in the 74th minute.
Llangefni Town 2-0 Prestatyn Sports
The league leaders continued their unbeaten run this season, with a win making it eight wins and one draw from nine matches this season. Kevin Lloyd opened the scoring for the hosts near the half hour mark, with Liam Morris adding a second in the 44th minute to ensure Llangefni went in at half time 2-0 up. The win means that Llangefni are now unbeaten in their last 16 matches in all competitions.
WELSH ALLIANCE Division Two
Amlwch Town 1-3 Glan Conwy
The hosts made it 10 matches without winning a single point so far this season, as they suffered another loss, this time to Glan Conwy. Richard Orme opened the scoring for Glan Conwy in the 21st minute, but the visitors held the lead for only nine minutes, as Jude Gallagher made it 1-1 in the 30th minute. Robert Marshall-Jones made it 2-1 to the visitors on the stroke of half time, with less than a minute of normal time to play before the interval. The second half was interesting, with both sides getting plenty of chances, before Howard Vaughan made it 3-1 to Glan Conwy in the 89th minute to secure all three points for the visitors.
Holyhead Town vs Gaerwen
This match was disappointingly postponed after the visitors could not field a full team.
Meliden 0-4 Aberffraw
With both these teams being separated by only two points heading into this match, many expected a tight game between two evenly-matched sides. However, the reality was completely different, as the visitors produced a confident performance to ease past Meliden. Richard Owen Roberts netted a first half hat-trick to put the visitors on their way, with David Harper adding a fourth in the second half, as Aberffraw jumped up to sixth in the league.
Mochdre Sports 1-4 Kinmel Bay
Kinmel Bay moved to within four points of league leaders Blaenau Amateurs after securing victory at Mochdre Sports. Kieran Ellis scored the only goal of the first half to open the scoring for the visitors. The second half saw the visitors extend their lead through Jordan Worthington and Ashley Wood, before Niall Owen pulled one back for the hosts in the 84th minute to make it 3-1. But any hopes of a comeback were dashed when Ashley Wood netted his second of the match in the 90th minute to secure the three points, and to mount the pressure on Mochdre Sports, who are still only two places off the bottom of the table.
