Following a 5-3 win on penalties against Bala Town, Penybont have reached their first ever Welsh Cup final. We will take on The New Saints in the final. Date and location to be announced.
Played at Park Avenue, Aberystwyth, nothing could separate the two sides over 90 minutes as the game finished goalless.
It was a tale of two goalkeepers. Bala’s Alex Ramsay made an impressive save in the first half to deny Sam Snaith. His header from five yards was acrobatically turned over the bar.
In the second half, Bala’s Chris Venables attempted a shot from the edge of the box but Ashley Morris got down low to his left to turn it around the post. The game was cagey, as two good sides cancelled eachother out and could only be separated by the lottery of a penalty shootout.
Both teams scored their first two penalties as Mael Davies and Sam Snaith made no mistakes for Bont. Kane Owen then scored the third before Ashley Morris denied Bala’s Bradley Bauress to give Bont the edge. Nathan Wood then hammered home his penalty before Shaun MacDonald had the chance to win it. He coolly slotted his penalty into the bottom corner to make history.
We will now take on The New Saints in the final after they beat Colwyn Bay 1-0 in their semi-final. The final’s date and location will be announced in due course.
