LLANDUDNO Junction suffered a 4-1 defeat to promotion hopefuls Pwllheli at the weekend, with Jamie Jones netting from the penalty spot on 28 minutes.

Rhos United claimed a deserved 2-1 win over nine-man Prestatyn Rovers, with Darren Williams opening the scoring on 12 minutes from Lee Thomas’ incisive pass to cap a dominant opening start to the match.

Rhos missed a chance to go two up when Jake Parkes’ penalty was saved, and Rovers equalised through Martin King just before the half hour mark.

Things got heated as Prestatyn lost two men to red cards, but stayed in the contest despite their numerical disadvantage, only for Ed Haley to seal the win with a sweetly struck 88th minute winner.

Mochdre Sports were unlucky to be on the wrong end of another 2-1 scoreline, with Steffan Whitley pulling a goal back midway through the second half.

Betws yn Rhos have reached their first ever cup final after a 6-3 aggregate win over Cerrigydrudion.

Despite a number of absent players, Betws put in a professional performance to seal a 3-1 REM Jones Cup semi-final win, with Mike Lauchlan opening the scoring on 15 minutes.

Cerrigydrudion made it 4-3 on aggregate with a floated free-kick, but Paul Cornwall restored the lead on 28 minutes after converting Dave Sharpe’s whipped cross.

Phil Holland booked a place in the final on the hour mark after squeezing his shot in off the post, setting up a blockbuster double-header with Llannefydd, who beat West Shore 6-2 in the other  semi-final, which will decide who wins both the league and cup.
