The Word Cup
BALA TOWN 6 BANGOR CITY 1
Bala gained revenge for their five goal league drubbing at The Book People Stadium last Friday by scoring six goals and earning a third round spot in the Word Cup at Maes Tegid on Tuesday night. Former Citizens striker Lee Hunt opened the scoring in the first quarter of an hour which was followed by other first half goals by 16 year old local boy Ryan Jones - his first for the club - and Stephen Brown. Bangor made things interesting when John Owen netted 5 minutes after the restart but the Lakesiders scored a fourth 6 minutes later through a Mark Jones 'wonder lob'. Peter Hoy put the ball in his own net after 84 minutes and Lee Hunt rubbed salt into Bangor wounds as he grabbed his second goal in the final minute.
BRYNTIRION ATHLETIC 1 CARMARTHEN TOWN 2
Following their failure to secure a victory in their last seven Corbett Sports WPL fixtures, Carmarthen Town's Word Cup victory at Bryntirion will undoubtedly be welcomed by 'Old Gold' boss Mark Aizlewood. Two goals in the opening half an hour by Liam Thomas (23,36) put Carmarthen on their way. There was no further scoring until the final 5 minutes when Nathan Jones scored a consolation goal for the home side.
PENRHYNCOCH 0 AIRBUS UK 1
Ten-men Airbus held onto their first half lead to progress by a solitary goal at Cae Baker.Chris Budrys scored the only goal of the game on the stroke of half-time, but the Wingmakers had to play the whole of the second-half with ten men after Ryan Wade was sent-off. The in-form attacking midfielder was dismissed for foul and abusive language to referee Huw Jones and he will now miss at least two League matches, which will not please his manager Andy Preece.
LLANELLI 6 AFAN LIDO 3
Last season's League Cup winners Afan Lido bowed out of the Word Cup as they conceded six goals at Stebonheath. The Reds registered six different scorers - Adam Davies (35), Craig Moses (41), Geoff Kellaway (66), Antonio Corbisiero (68), Lloyd Grist (83) and Chris Venables (90+1).
The Lido struck three second half goals themselves through Lee Hartshorn, Kieran Howard and Gavin Jefferies.
