Tynygongl 1 - Llanfair Teirw 1
We welcomed Llanfair Teirw to a very sunny Moelfre, the pitch was looking good and we were ready to go!
Tynygongl players started lively and we had a few attacks on goal in the first 5 minutes, but couldn't find the back of the net. Llanfair fought back but our back four, Lewis, Caio, Dan and Sam, were solid and well organised and they couldn't break through.
We had many opportunities with Gethin A and Kian linking well, but missed the chances. We looked the stronger team but couldn't find the back of the net. We fought on and our new signing, Sion, crossed a sweet ball in for Jospeh to narrowly miss the target.
After 30 minutes of play and dominating the game for most of this, our left back Dan saw an opportunity to hit the ball for a 30 yard screamer into the back of the net for his first goal of the season.
Half time score - Tynygongl 1 - Llanfair Teirw 0
We made some changes second half seeing Jacob and Rhys making an appearance and Gethin R pushing back into defense. We started in the same manor of the first half, playing some lovely football but couldn't break through due to Llanfair's defense putting on a fantastic performance.
Llanfair had a few chances but our defense maintained their solid performance into the second half.
We had a few chances from corners but couldn't finish and just as we thought a second goal was on the cards, with Kian going one on one with the keeper, Llanfair's keeper pulled of an amazing save to deny the young sky blue a goal.
With less than 5 minutes to go, the ball bounced over our defenders for the Llanfair strikers turn to go one on one with our keeper, Morgan, but he was able find the back of the net to make is 1-1.
From then on it became a very close game with both sides having chances. Lewis R took one for the team when he cleared the ball of the goal line with his face!!
Final score 1-1
The whole team put on a fantastic performance during this game, we tried a new formation this weekend so a special mention to Lewis A for taking on his new role, Gethin R for pushing into defense and Lewis R for his heroic save off the line. However, it is hard to chose one man of the match this week so it is shared between Gethin A for his tireless work rate and Sam for his solid defensive performance.
Well done Sky Blues - lets see the same performance next week.
