LLYSFAEN’s memorable NWCFA Junior Cup run came to an end with a 5-0 loss at home to Bangor 1876.

The Vale of Clwyd and Conwy League Division One side kept the Gwynedd League leaders at bay for the majority of the first period before succumbing to fierce pressure after the break, but they can be tremendously proud of their efforts in the competition this term.

A closely fought first half saw the visitors go into the break a goal to the good when Dafydd Thomas headed home on 39 minutes, and the same player was on hand to double their tally after the break.

An unfortunate own goal all-but ended the hosts’ chances of pulling off an upset, and Jamie Petrie’s penalty on 85 minutes notched a fourth for 1876.

They finished things off in style through a Shuan Lock thunderbolt with two remaining to round off the scoring.

There was better fortune for Llansannan, who attained a 3-2 win over Trearddur Bay Bulls to reach the semi-final stage.

An imposing start from the home side saw them go ahead on 12 minutes when Euros Lloyd opened the scoring, and they doubled their lead soon after through Keiran Kendrick with 18 gone.

The away side dusted themselves off and got themselves back into the game, but Liam Jones’ restored Sannan’s two-goal advantage late on with a well-taken finish with eight remaining.

Another goal from the visitors in the dying moments ensured a nervy end to proceedings, but the home side held on for a memorable cup triumph.

Abergele also reached the semi-final stage thanks to a thrilling 4-3 home win over Llangoed and District, with Menai Bridge Tigers rounding off the final four with a 2-1 victory at Talysarn Celts.
