Only one game in the KWAFL survived the weather and that was the Huws Gray Megan Cup semi final where Bodorgan entertained Llangoed and District only to be hit for six when if only they had taken their – or some of them it could have been so different. So Llangoed and District book their second Final as they wait to see if Mynydd Llandegai can stop them making it a hat-trick by winning their two remaining games.
BODORGAN 0 v LLANGOED and District 6
ON a day where grassroots football had fallen victim to the horrendous weather Bodorgan F.C. were able to have their ground passed fit for the visit of Llangoed in the semi-final of the Huws Gray Megan Cup
With a wicked crosswind and driving rain at the kick-off both teams were struggling to come to terms with the conditions although it was Llangoed FC who seemed to settle the quickest and s on 12 minutes they took the lead through Carwyn Williams when he pounced on the ball which was spilled by the home keeper from a Wayne Thomas shot, a simple tap in for the clubs top marksman this season.
Llion Roberts had a chance to extend the away sides lead but seen his shot just sail wide of the goal. Bodorgan kept attempting to play football and could probably feel a little bit unfairly done by when they missed a glorious chance to equalise when they drove the ball wide of an open goal from 4 yards out.
Another attempt for Bodorgan came from a direct set play which Stephen Hughes struck sweetly but only to be matched by a quality stop from Rhys Wyn Owen.
There were a few half chances for Llangoed in the first half but Bodorgan were defending valiantly and failed to take any of the chances they made and half ended 0-1.
The 2nd half began and it was now Bodorgan’s turn to struggle against the wind and this showed on 52 minutes when Matty Owen broke down the right flank and drilled a low right foot shot into the net ‘[0-2]. Four minutes later it was 0-3 with Carwyn Williams doubled his tally when a throw in found its way through and he cleverly drilled his shot into the floor and bounced it over the keeper.
Llangoed introduced Darren Edmunds to the fray and it took him just 4 minutes to make the score line 0-4 with a lethal strikers finish.
The hosts were now finding it difficult and their chances were few and far between as Llangoed took full advantage of the wind and when, captain for today, Charlie Mckenna found space in the box he was able to drill the ball home from 12 yards to cap off an impressive individual performance, it just got harder for the juniors.
Another Llangoed substitute, debutant Josh Royds, added his name to the score sheet, and what a goal!, smashing the ball home from 35 yards to put the icing on the cake for a very impressive performance from Llangoed . But in fairness, the way Bodorgan defended they where unfortunate to concede six – and if only their strikers had been alive to the half chances it would have been a different story.
