MENAI Bridge Tigers booked their place in the Gwynedd Shield final with an emphatic 5-2 home win over Waunfawr.

The all-conquering Gwynedd League leaders were in clinical mood once again to book their place in the showcase, where they will take on either Llanystumdwy or Glantraeth in their quest for multiple honours.

The home side started the contest on the front foot and opened the scoring on the quarter hour mark when Callum Davidson converted a chance, and things got even better from a Tigers’ perspective soon after when a neat passage of play was finished off by Callum Graves after half an hour to extend their advantage.

This was soon followed by another which arrived through a superb strike by Graves on 43 minutes, but the visitors were handed a lifeline just before the interval when Adam Jones converted from the penalty spot in first half stoppage time.

After the break saw the same pattern of play emerge, and this time it was Lewis Hughes who was the beneficiary of a period of sustained pressure to add a fourth on 56 minutes to all-but seal their place in the final.

Yet another outstanding spell of possession saw Graves round off a sensational individual display with his hat-trick on 70 minutes, and despite former Caernarfon Town standout Ioan Gwynedd netting a consolation with 73 on the clock it was not enough to impact the overall outcome of the semi-final tie.
