------------------------------------

Porthmadog Youths continued their progress in the Welsh Youth Cup on 
Sunday with a battling 2-1 win away at Ruthin. The game didnt match 
the excitement of the 4-4 draw and the penalty shoot out at Rhyl in the 
last round but the lads put in a solid performance on a difficult 
surface. Ruthin made a bright start and almost scored after 10 minutes, 
a throw in on the right was headed on by Jordan McCarter and Jack 
Williams put his shot into the side netting from 6 yards at the near 
post. However Porthmadog responded in the best possible way with a well 
worked goal. Good play on the left flank gave Dylan Williams the chance 
to cross and Ezra Warren finished well from 12 yards with a clever 
volley. On 29 minutes Porthmadog doubled their advantage with another 
good move. Jack Jones released Ezra Warren on the right flank his cross 
found Tom Owen who scored from 12 yards. Porthmadog were well worth the 
lead as Ruthin struggled to break down a resilient Porthmadog defence. 
Indeed they could have gone in 3-0 up as another cross from the right on 
the stroke of half-time found Dylan Williams unmarked in the box but he 
blasted his effort over from 15 yards.
In the second half Ruthin had more possession but gave Meilir Ellis in 
the Porthmadog goal -fresh from his exploits in Neath- a fairly quiet 
afternoon. Danny Rylance and Tom Owen went close to scoring a third for 
Porthmadog before Ruthin finally pulled a goal back after 83 minutes, 
Richard Jones gave away a free kick just outside the box and Sion Davies 
curled the free kick around the wall and just inside the right hand post 
for a great goal. Porthmadog comfortably held on and almost sealed the 
win with a third goal after 86 minutes as Rylance created a chance for 
Tom Owen who put his shot just wide from 6 yards. This win puts 
Porthmadog into the last eight of the U19s competition with the draw for 
the quarter finals expected this week.

Porthmadog: Meilir Ellis, Iwan Lane, Liam Hughes, Richard Jones, 
Shaun Jones, Iddon Price, Jack Jones, Tomos Llewelyn Owen, Daniel Rylance, 
Ezra Warren, Dylan Williams.


Cwpan Ieuenctid Cymru / Welsh Youth Cup, 25/10/09:

Rhyl FC ... 3		CPD Porthmadog ...3 AET   (4-5 on pens)

Alex Ballard 24. 46		Jack Jones 35, Cai Jones 40
Seb Walker 69		Tom Owen 84

Under difficult circumstances Porthmadog pulled off a remarkable  
result on Sunday in the Welsh Youth Cup. Porthmadog travelled with a  
bear minimum squad of 11 players and almost paid the price. The game  
opened with Port the brightest, Jack Jones firing over after only two  
minutes. Early on Port were passing the ball crisply and looked in  
control, but Rhyl burst into life after twenty minutes with three  
good chances in quick succession Seb Walker headed over after a left  
wing cross on 20 minutes. A moment later and another left wing raid  
created an even better chance for Alex Ballard who fired over from  
inside the box. Three minutes later and Ballard converted his second  
opportunity with a clever lob from the edge of the box after the Port  
defence failed to clear their lines. Porthmadog came back into the  
game and Cai Jones went close as he burst into the box on the half  
hour only to see his shot saved by Ryan Roberts in the Rhyl goal. The  
rebound fell to Danny Rylance who tried an extravagant overhead kick  
only to see it fly wide of the goal. On 35 minutes Porthmadog  
equalised, an inch perfect Dylan Williams free kick on the left found  
the head of Jack Jones who scored from 6 yards. Three minutes later  
Cai Jones ran at the home defence only to see his shot palmed away by  
Roberts. Five minutes from half-time things got even better for the  
visitors as an excellent Tom Owen run through the midfield was  
crowned with a pass which found Cai Jones, he rounded keeper Roberts  
to score with ease. The Rhyl bench were incensed feeling that Cai was  
offside but referee Wilkinson awarded the goal.

Only a minute into the second half and Rhyl equalised. Shaun Jones  
poor header gifted the ball to Ballard and again with Meilir Ellis  
stranded he managed to chip the ball over him from 20 yards. Jack  
Jones almost produced an immediate reply with a 25 yarder which went  
just wide of the right hand post. Porthmadog went even closer on 55  
minutes as a short corner on the left was worked to Ezra Warren and  
his cross was back headed onto the cross bar by Cai Jones. In the  
resulting scramble Porthmadog centre half Richard Jones suffered a  
leg injury. Despite carrying on manfully for 10 minutes he was forced  
off. This forced positional changes as Porthmadog management of  
Adrian Jones and John Williams struggled to fill the gap in defence.  
Rhyl took advantage of the extra man on 69 minutes when Seb Walker  
toe poked the ball home after a melee in the Port defence.

Boldly Porthmadog changed formation and went to a back three to try  
and secure an equaliser. Iwan Lane who started at right back was  
moved inside and excelled as the game wore on. On 74 minutes Cai  
Jones again stretched the home defence and his pass found Dylan  
Williams who fired straight at Roberts. Rhyl also went close through  
the impressive Sam Heenan after 80 minutes. With six minutes to go a  
piece of inspiration from Tom Owen created the equaliser, he went on  
a mazy run across the face of goal and just kept going and fired a  
right foot shot which the keeper could only parry into his own goal.  
Both Rylance and Cai Jones had decent chances to win the game late on  
but the game went into extra time. With both sides tired chances were  
few in the extra periods but Rhyls Sam Heenan was sent off after 97  
minutes for foul and abusive language. Despite an eccentric  
refereeing display which occasionally caused laughter in the sparsely  
populated Belle Vue stands this was one decision the ref got right.  
Rhyl did create a couple of chances but wild shooting was more of a  
danger to windows behind the goal than to Port keeper Meilir Ellis.  
As the game went to the lottery of penalties it was Ellis who covered  
himself with glory.  The penalty shootout went to 3-3 as Cai Jones,  
Jack Jones and Dylan Williams scored for Port and Tom Williams, David  
Evans and Ashley New all scored for Rhyl. Rhyl goalkeeper Ryan  
Roberts took the fourth Rhyl penalty which was brilliantly saved by  
Ellis. Iwan Lane made it 4-3 for Port and Declan Thomas made it 4-4.  
The last and deciding penalty was taken by Porthmadogs youngest  
player Ezra Warren who only turned 16 in August and he fired it home  
to spark some well deserved celebrations. All 11 players were a  
credit to Porthmadog FC and they should be very proud of themselves.  
Lets see who we will now get in the next round.

Porthmadog: Meilir Ellis, Iwan Lane, Chris Griffiths, Shaun Jones,  
Richard Jones, Dylan Williams, Ezra Warren, Jack Jones, Danny  
Rylance, Cai Jones, Tom Owen.
