Match Report

COLWYN BAY will play Porthmadog in the northern final of the Welsh Blood Service League Cup after two late goals sealed a 4-1 semi-final victory over Guilsfield.

Porthmadog beat Chirk on penalties in the other semi-final.

The Seagulls dominated much of the first half of their game and led 2-0 at half-time.

Kristian Platt bundled in the opening goal on 20 minutes after his initial header was saved on the line by the keeper, and 12 minutes later Alex Downes scored his 13th goal of the campaign with a great strike into the top corner of the net from the edge of the area after great work by Lewis Sirrell.

Only the finger tips of Guils keeper Williams prevented a Downes cross setting up a tap in for Craig Lindfield.

In the second half Dylan Allshorn hit the post from some great football from the Bay, but Guilsfield got themselves back in the game with a close range header by Steve Blenkinsop on 53 minutes.

Bay had big chances to put the tie to bed, but Kristian Platt hit the bar with a penalty and Cai Owen blazed over the bar from Dylan Allshorn’s pass.

Guilsfield, however, couldn’t force an equaliser and Colwyn Bay sealed victory when Sam Downey curled a shot into the bottom corner of the net on 87 minutes to make it 3-1 and Tom McCready made it 4-1 from the spot in added time when Bay were awarded a second penalty.

COLWYN BAY: Jack Crichton, Cai Owen, Lewis Sirrell, Tom McCready (c), Matty Hill, Dylan Allshorn (Stefan Edwards 70), Craig Lindfield (Tom Creamer 81), Guto Williams, Sam Hart, Kristian Platt, Alex Downes (Sam Downey 64).
