MENAI Bridge Tigers moved to within two of resuming control of the Gwynedd League standings following an emphatic 6-1 victory at Mynydd Tigers.

Despite the eventual result it was the home side who went ahead on 28 minutes when Kieron Bullock found the net, before the visitors dusted themselves off and levelled matters thanks to a fine Callum Davidson finish with 39 gone.

After the break saw Davidson notch his second of the afternoon four minutes into the half, and the away side doubled their advantage when Shaun Hogan converted on 64.

Davidson rounded off a sensational day at the office with his hat-trick on 65 minutes, and two late goals from Shaun Lock and Dean Redmond in the closing stages completed the rout.

Glantraeth booked their place in the Gwynedd Shield third round with a narrow 3-2 win at Bro Goronwy.

A strong start saw Rory Clark and Andy Clarke put the visitors’ two-up within the opening 25 minutes, before Jamie Jones and Nick Clarke traded efforts before the break.

Jack Thomas netted for the home side on 58 minutes to ensure a nervy end to proceedings, but Traeth held firm to advance.

Waunfawr caused the shock of the first round with a stunning penalty shootout success at Gwynedd League leaders Gwalchmai after the game finished 2-2 after extra time, with goals from Sion Prys and Darren Parry giving Llanystumdwy a 2-0 triumph at Llangoed.
