We started with probably the youngest side that the Tigers have every started with in a competitive match, out of the starting 11 we had 7 that were 18 or younger. This made no difference to the score and in the end ran out comfortable winners against an honest hard-working Llanllyfni side.
We started on the front foot creating chances and dominating play with Guy getting his 1st after 11 minutes when he cut in on the left and with a cheeky near post finish that had everyone at the ground wondering how that one finished in the back of the net.
On 23rd Minutes the ball landed at the feet of Guy Hughes and with the drop of a shoulder he sent the centre half for a hot dog !!! lol and slotted the ball passed the keeper.
The team as a whole played some cracking football at time on a very sticky pitch on 35 mins some brilliant play between Tom Parry and Gethin Davies down the left saw Geth put in an inch perfect ball into the 6 yard box and Guy made no mistake in completing a 1st half hat-trick.
Half Time MB Tigers 3 – 0 Llanllyfni
The Tigers continued to dominate the game and it would only be a matter of time before we scored more, if it wasn’t for the Llanllyfni keeper who made some brilliant save it took us till the 65 minutes to score our 4th when a pinpoint defence splitting pass from Tom Parry put Andy Clarke through on goal and he made it 3 in 3 for him.
On 67 minutes a quick corner taken by Guy Hughes and Tom Parry caught Llan on the back foot and from the corner of the box Guy rifled an unstoppable shot that made it 5.
On 69 minutes a half chance for Llanllyfni saw a snap shot from the edge of the box sail in towards the top corner only for Ciaran Elsworth to tip it over the bar.
We continued to create chance after chance and only some strong committed challenges at the very last seconds stopped Andy Wannop and Andy Clarke extending the lead. Guy was on fire and on 75 minutes scored his 5th of the game when he pounced on some hesitation in the Llan box and made no mistake.
As the game came to an end Jason Scott and Gethin Davies had half chances and when Andy Clarke, Sion Childes and Jason Scott released Gethin Davies on the right and as he smashed the ball across the box it took a deflection off a defender and nestled in the back of the net, goal was credited to Geth for his hard work.
Man of the match award could have gone to anyone of Tom Parry (four assists), Gethin Davies or Guy Hughes (5 goals) but at the end of the day if you score 5 then you deserve the man of the match award.
