WAUNFAWR moved up to fifth in the Gwynedd League standings with an impressive 3-1 home victory over Nefyn United.

The improving side are hitting form at just the right time and now find themselves just one point behind United having played four more than the one-time title hopefuls.

An even opening to proceedings was turned on its head in the latter stages of the first half, with the hosts handed a golden opportunity to break the deadlock on 38 minutes when they were awarded a penalty.

Osian Glyn managed to hold his nerve to put away the spot kick and break the deadlock.

The hosts finished the period strongly and got another at a crucial moment when Adam Jones capitalised on some space in stoppage time to double their lead.

After the break saw the visitors get themselves back into the game through a penalty of their own from Dylan Sion, but the hosts held firm in the face of some stern pressure and wrapped up the points in the dying stages when Shaun Roberts found the net.

Bontnewydd moved closer to the top six thanks to a 3-1 home success over Glantraeth.

Two penalties either side of half time from Deion Hughes did the majority of the damage, with Tomos Jones rounding off the scoring on 83 minutes. James Ryan netted Traeth’s consolation.

Ogwen Tigers eased further clear of danger with a narrow 2-1 home triumph over basement dwellers Llannerchymedd.

The hosts opened the scoring on 28 minutes courtesy of Reece Thompson, but they were pegged back soon after when Mark Jones equalised with 35 on the clock.

Llan came within two minutes of notching their first point of the season, but they were cruelly denied by a Leon Owen finish on 88 minutes.
