BANGOR 1876 hit a significant milestone on their way to an eye-watering 10-2 win at Bethesda Athletic.

The Gwynedd League championship favourites have now scored an exceptional 104 times in their 15 games, which they have taken maximum points from, leaving them eight points clear of Trearddur Bay Bulls with a game in hand.

They wasted no time in making an impact on proceedings as a Jamie Petrie cross was diverted past home stopper Rob Beattie by one of his own players in the first minute.

This was quickly followed by another that came courtesy of Dafydd Thomas on six minutes, but the hosts responded well and reduced the arrears through Dewi Thomas a minute after the restart.

Mel Jones’ men finished the half in ruthless form, with Thomas, Cameron Barry, Welsh Colleges international Cian Williams and Petrie all finding the net with the final five minutes of the first period.

After the interval saw the same pattern of play emerge as 1876 notched their seventh of the game on 47 minutes when Dylan Summers-Jones found the net from just inside the penalty area, and the talented youngster went from scorer to provider when he teed up Petrie for his hat-trick with 54 on the clock.

Credit to the home side, who kept plugging away despite their deficit and managed to achieve another consolation on 69 minutes when Ally Issa made an instant impact for his new club with a well-taken finish.

The visitors managed to finish the game in dominant mood thanks to a successfully converted penalty from Petrie on 80 minutes, and they reached double figures thanks to Matty Lock attempt.

Next up for all-conquering Bangor 1876 is a trip to current Gwynedd League champions Menai Bridge Tigers in the Bob Owen Shield on Saturday.
