Match Report

Rhyl eased into the next round of the Welsh Cup after an emphatic 6-0 drubbing over Penrhyncoch.

Rhyl took an early lead through Rob Hughes before Zyaac Edwards, Carl Lamb and Toby Jones all scored to give the Lilywhites a 4-0 lead at half time before Ahmadi bagged a brace in the second half to complete the rout.

The game was marred after a scuffle which resulted in red cards for Alex Jones and Gareth Mansell in the second half as both teams played the remainder of game with 10 men.

Rhyl began the game at a quick tempo and soon made the breakthrough when Rob Hughes latched onto a header from Carl Lamb and coolly finished with a low strike from inside the area.

Three minutes later and Rhyl doubled their lead; Zyaac Edwards tapping into an empty net after Alex Jones squared the ball after being put through on goal by Rob Hughes.

The goals kept coming and Carl Lamb added Rhyl's third just before the 20 minute mark; the striker heading in superbly from a whipped Toby Jones cross.

A 27 minute rout saw Toby Jones then deservedly grab a goal after controlling a long ball from Rob Hughes and smashing the ball into the roof of the net from close range.

The Lilywhites took their foot off the gas after the fourth goal but the game sparked into life again when a scuffle in the second half resulted in Alex Jones and Gareth Mansell being sent off, leaving both sides with 10 men.

The drubbing was then completed when Ahmadi, on as a sub at half time, bagged a brace. His first a looping header from Toby Jones' cross and the second with a cool finish under the keeper after controlling brilliantly in the area under pressure.

A great win for a clinical Rhyl side that will now look forward to the next round.
