Match Report

Rhyl beat Caernarfon Town 5-1 at the Roberts Oval on Wednesday evening to book their place in the Second Round of the Nathaniel MG Cup. The Rhyl line up included 5 changes from the weekend as Kieran Hilditch, Aaron Simpson, Zyaac Edwards, Ryan Jones and Rio Ahmedi being selected.

The match was even for the first 25 minutes of the first half as both sides created opportunities but as the match went on the Lilywhites grew in confidence and a spell of pressure in the 31st minute led to an own goal from Clive Williams following a long throw into the box from Hilditch. A debut goal from Rio Ahmadi came in the 37th minute as he lobbed Paul Whitfield in the Caernarfon goal but the hosts pulled one back from the penalty spot on the stroke of half time though Nathan Craig.

The second half saw the Lilywhites score three further goals from Porya Ahmadi netting in the 67th minute following good work by Ryan Jones, a 25 yard placed shot from Kristian Pierce in the 73rd Minute and then a last minute goal from Tom Hartley. A great performance and one which sent the supporters who made the trip West, head home happy.
