BANGOR 1876 reached the NWFCA Junior Cup quarter finals with a 5-0 home win over Llanystumdwy.

The Gwynedd League leaders turned on the side in the second half despite being significantly depleted heading into the tie.

Storm Dennis made things extremely difficult for both sides throughout, and an uneventful first half brought one critical moment when the visitors had Mark Godfrey sent off on 39 minutes.

After the break saw the hosts come out of the blocks flying and open the scoring on 48 minutes thanks to a close-range finish from inside the six-yard box by Leon Owen.

Things got even better for the home side soon after when a thumping shot from Shaun Lock on 54 minutes found its way into the top corner, and their passage to the next stage of the competition was assured when Owen unleashed an effort from outside the area that gave the keeper no chance midway through the half.

Credit to the away side, who kept plugging away despite the deficit, but they were undone again on 82 minutes when Cameron Barry finished well from seven yards after another prolonged period of pressure and good work from Luke Steele.

There was still time for 1876 to put the exclamation point on proceedings, which came once again from the foot of Barry after he turned in a cross with a minute remaining to round off the scoring.

Jones’ side will face either Nefyn United or Llysfaen in the competition’s last eight, but their immediate attention turns to league action this Saturday and a trip to Bro Goronwy.
