Tigers on Cloud 9
perfect response off the lads
This was the perfect response from the boys after a disappointing result at the weekend.
We welcomed back a number of players back into the squad and even saw Dave Baston make his first start of the season.
From the off the Tigers should have scored two if not three within the 1st 4 minutes of the game with Dave Baston and Lance Williams going close, but on five minutes ‘back post’ Baston made no mistake when the ball fell to him and he smashed it into the back of the net. 1- 0
Some great work between Dale Owens and Guy Hughes down the left and the ball mad its way to Lance Williams on the edge of the box and with a first time shot the ball nestled in the bottom corner of the net. 2- 0
If it wasn’t for the Pesda keeper we could have scored a few more but some good saves kept the score down. On 27 mins Guy Hughes picked up the ball on the left bamboozled the full back and hit a rocket that beat the keeper only for it to hit the post and the defender clear the ball for a corner. From the resulting corner the ball was cleared to the edge of the box and just taking one touch to control the ball and one to smash the ball into the net Callum Davidson made it 3 – 0.
34 mins a corner from the left take by Callum Davidson was whipped into the box and was met by the head of Tom Scorer and it flew into the onion bag. 4 – 0
A rare attack from Bethesda and Lee Moore picked up the ball and launched the ball up the field and Gareth Barker did the rest. 5 -0 .. an assist for our keeper Lee Moore.
43mins some brilliant work between Tom Parry and Callum Davidson create a half chance for Guy Hughes who calmly slotted the ball in the net 6 – 0.
Half time – Menai Bridge Tigers 6 – 0 Bethesda Athletic
Second half started at the same pace with the Tigers scoring another two goals in the first 10 mins.
Gaz Barker scoring 47mins after a Lance Williams put it on a plate for him.
54 mins Callum Davidson score our 8th goal.
The score give the Tigers a chance to rest some of the players and give some of the subs some valuable game time. Guy Hughes, Gareth Barker and Dave Baston being replaced by Tim Evans, Andy Wannop and Matt Jarvis.
We continued to create chance after chance but Tom Lloyd in the Pesda goal made some top saves.
Bethesda scored two consolation goal late in the game, but it was Lance Williams who had the last say in the match when a lovely long ball from Matt Jarvis was flicked on by Andy Wannop and Lance did the rest.
In the final seconds Tim Evans should have scored from two yards but yet again the Pesda keeper pulled off a stunning save.
