HOLYHEAD Town suffered a blow to their Gwynedd League title hopes with a shock 5-1 thrashing at Llanystumdwy.

The visitors were left rueing a poor start and fell behind on 21 minutes when Sion Parry found the net, and things got even worse soon after when Rhys Hughes doubled their advantage on 33.

The Harbourmen regrouped after the break and got back into the contest on 47 minutes when Jordan Murphy finished well, but the hoists restored their cushion on 52 when the impressive Parry notched his second of the afternoon.

Town were now throwing caution to the wind and they were caught on the break on two occasions late on, with Joe Soar and Darren Parry both slotting home chances on 83 and 87 minutes to complete the rout.

Llangoed picked up a home win but left it late to secure a 2-1 success over Llanllyfni, despite falling behind three minutes into the second period thanks to a Justin Taylor strike.

Carl Pritchard popped up with an equaliser on 54 minutes, and Craig Jones decided matter with virtually the last kick of the game when he steered home on 95.

Another outstanding display from improving Waunfawr come away with a 3-1 home triumph over Nefyn United, with former Caernarfon Town star Ioan Gwynedd, Shaun Roberts and Rhys Davies all hitting the net.
