PENALTY SHOOTOUT WIN

20th January 2019

Llangefni Town beat Blaenau Ffestiniog Amateurs 5-4 on penalties to reach the Mawddach Challenge Cup quarter finals, following a tense goalless draw. 


Cefni began on the front foot, with strikers Alan Mark Owen and Mathew Jones missing good scoring opportunities early on, Blaenau looked dangerous on the counter, but their best chance of the half came from a freekick going narrowly wide from 18 yards out.  


A cagey second half followed as Cefni tested Blaenau’s defence with a series of attacks, Mathew Jones thought he opened the scoring on 51 minutes, with his shot hitting the crossbar from 20 yards out.   Moments later, Liam Morris had a great chance at the far post following great work from Cai Powell-Roberts down the right.  


On 70 minutes, good interchanging play by Blaenau and a through ball to Ian Roberts who found him through on goal, only to be denied by a great save from Liam Ewing in Cefni’s goal.  5 minutes later, it was the turn of Gethin Jones in goal for Blaenau to pull off the save of the match from a thunderbolt shot by Sean Pritchard.  


Llangefni had the better of extra-time  Alan Mark Owen shot going  wide from 5 yards, but penalties felt inevitable, and when they came the Town did not disappoint scoring all of their penalties. Goalkeeper Liam Ewing took the plaudits, saving one of the penalties to clinch victory.


Next up is the big one, on Saturday 26 January v Llandudno FC at home in the JD Welsh Cup last 16.   Kickoff is 2:30.

RESERVES PRODUCE 5 STAR PERFORMANCE

7th January 2019

Llangefni Town Reserves gained revenge over Nantlle Vale Reserves on Saturday with a convincing 5-0 win. Cameron Jones opened the scoring after 10 minutes finding the top corner with a superb half volley from the edge of the box. Sion Jones and Aaron Rickards had chances to double Cefni’s advantage but Rickards made no mistake just before half-time when he latched on to goalkeeper Owen Hughes kick and placed the ball in the bottom corner. Rickards scored his second and Llangefni’s 3rd early in the second half from the penalty spot and Cameron Jones made it 4-0 with a tap in after a good cross from Tomos Hughes. Leon Buckland scored Cefni’s 5th in the 90th minute when he finished off a good break away with a low finish past the on rushing goalkeeper. This was a very mature performance from the youngsters and Gafyn Buckland will be looking for more of the same from his team against Prestatyn Res at Treborth on Friday night, 7.30 kick off.
