HOLDERS Llanrhaeadr are out of this season's Tony Evans Memorial Shield following a dramatic night of action on Monday.

Llan memorably defeated Llandyrnog in last season's final, but impressive Caerwys were spot-on to knock them out in the preliminary round.

It was 1-1 after 90 minutes and two-apiece at the conclusion of extra time.

Keeper Lewys Thompson was then the hero with two penalty saves as Caerwys triumphed in the shootout 4-2.

Nick Voyle and Jake Spencer netted earlier goals for the hosts, with Osian Davies and Kevin Evans on target for the holders.

League runners-up Henllan made it through to the next round on the back of their thrilling 6-3 success at Clawddnewydd.

Mark Lewis' hosts were 2-0 and 3-2 up at various points during the tie, but four goals from star marksman Sam Jones helped Henllan to victory after extra time.

Ed Jones and Nico Clwyd also found the back of the net for Chris Brown's visitors.

Jordan MacCarter, Owen Heath and Meirion Williams struck for Clawdd.

In further Shield action, in-form Ysceifiog secured a 4-2 win during their competitive tussle at Rhewl.

Two goals from Tom Cumming, plus one apiece from Aaron Flynn and Tom Jones, did the trick to send the Flintshire side through to the last-eight.

Elis Owen netted in the first half for Rhewl, with Phyl Roberts bagging the home side's second goal late on.
