CHAMPIONS Rhuddlan Town produced four goals in extra-time to pull off a 9-5 aggregate victory in a dramatic finish to their Clwyd Cup semi-final second leg thriller at St Asaph.
Defiant Saints preserved a blank sheet throughout normal time before Rhuddlan unleashed their sudden scoring burst with two goals each for Joe Ahearn and Dave Cameron to romp to a 4-0 win, having already survived a 5-5 draw in their opening home encounter.
Star performance of the week belonged to Meliden’s scoring machine Gareth Walsh who fired seven goals in his side’s 8-1 demolition of hosts Prestatyn Rovers in the other semi-final.
Leading 2-0 from the home leg, Meliden left it to prodigious Walsh to run riot as he filled his boots with five goals in the first half and two more on the change-round. Jonathan Grimley managed to break into Walsh’s monopoly with Meliden’s other goal as Martin King clawed one back for Rovers.
Prestatyn Town had a four-goal crackshot of their own in Darren Hughes as they crushed visitors Flint Town United 8-1 in their Reserve Premier League game. Carl Murray, Dan Evans, Chris Davies and Ashley Bamber ran in Prestatyn’s other goals
