PENMAENMAWR Phoenix reached their Take Stock Van Hire Challenge Cup final thanks to a dramatic penalty shootout win at Llannefydd.

The Lock Stock Welsh Alliance Division Two side produced a rousing effort in terrible conditions to book their place in the showcase, where they will take on either Pentraeth or Y Felinheli later on in the season.

A thrilling 120 minutes of action brought eight goals in a 4-4 stalemate after extra-time, and Phoenix held their nerve in sudden death to emerge victorious in the shootout by a score of 7-6.

Glan Conwy gave their Division Two title hopes a massive boost with a 3-1 home victory over long-time leaders Blaenau Ffestiniog Amateurs.

Prolific forward Jordan Phillips sent them into the break a goal to the good courtesy of a composed finish, before the visitors levelled matters just after the restart through Bryn Humphries.

The home side responded well to the equaliser and went ahead again soon after when Morgan Owen converted a chance, and they wrapped up the points late on when Phillips rounded off another superb individual display with his second of the afternoon.

Llandudno Albion remain in the Division One title hunt thanks to a resounding 5-1 home win over Llanberis.

Goals from Ricky Jones, and Adam Hold gave Darren Jones’ men a commanding lead at the break, and Ashley Beacall, Hold and Dan Evans also on target during the rout.

Llanrwst United turned in a fine effort to come away from their trip to Llandyrnog United with a 3-1 victory, with Llandudno Junction picking up a creditable 2-2 draw at Mynydd Llandegai.
