LUCAS OIL CUP
Bryngwran Bulls 0
(Cybi won 3-1 on penalties)
DALE MOFFAT’S Caergybi secured a cup double on Friday night, scooping the Lucas Oil Cup from the clutches of Bryngwran Bulls, who are still on the hunt for a potential quadruple.
It’s not often we get a goalless game in the Anglesey League but when we do it’s not for the want of trying. Both defences stood strong in this encounter at Llangefni Town’s Cae Bob Parry ground and good chances were few and far between.
Both sides also missed a penalty each in normal and extra time, which certainly didn’t bode well for the eventual shoot-out – especially for one team.
Cybi goalkeeper Kieran Weeks (below) proved to be the hero on the night, saving four spot-kicks to see his side go on to be crowned champions for a second time this season – having already beaten The Bulls in the Dargie Cup final just two weeks ago.
It’s been a phenomenal season for Dale Moffat’s team, who have come on leaps and bounds and have now claimed three trophies since forming in the summer of 2017. Bryngwran Bulls have also won a double (League and Elias Cup) and have another two finals to look forward to as well – Junior Cup (this coming Saturday v Bro Goronwy) and (Car Boot Cup v holders Arriva Bangor on May 24).
Bro Goronwy 1 (Jac Thomas 17′)
Menai Tigers 2 (Dean Redmond 30′, Owain Roberts 67′)
GWYNEDD LEAGUE champions Menai Tigers also secured a cup double over the weekend as they came away deserved winners against Bro.
Bro had taken the lead early on – 17mins to be precise – when captain Dylan Jones battled well in the box to leave Jac Thomas with just enough on his shot to squeeze past Dave Clarke into the net.
However, The Tigers clawed their way back into the tie and got their reward on the half hour mark when top scorer Dean Redmond found space in the box to slot under goalkeeper Johnny Sweetser-Hawkes.
It took until 67mins for the eventual winner to come though and it was Owain Roberts who made it 2-1 with a shot which was just enough to find its way into the corner of the net.
The double secured for The Tigers then and a potential treble on the horizon too as they are set to meet Glantraeth in the Safeflue Shield final on May 17.
The champions followed their cup win up with a resounding 6-1 win over league runners-up Gwalchmai on Monday thanks to goals from Dean Redmond, Sion Hogan, Ryan Owen, Tom Parry and Owain Roberts (x2).
Bro will have another bite at the cherry of glory this weekend when they meet Anglesey League side Brynwgran Bulls in Bethesda for the NWCFA Junior Cup final. That should be a real thriller.
