Bangor sizzle in Welsh Cup final

Bangor City FC denied Llanelli AFC a domestic treble as they claimed the Welsh Cup with a 4-2 win in extra time despite playing most of the game with ten men.

Eventful game
With Peter Hoy sent off in the opening minutes of the first half, Bangor looked destined to struggle against the side that had already won the League Cup and the Welsh title, but took the lead through an Ashley Stott header. However, Llanelli got back on top with Ryan Griffiths forcing Dave Swanick to put through his own goal before scoring a second of his own. Llanelli's Wyn Thomas was then dismissed and Chris Sargeant levelled from distance in added time to force an extra 30 minutes. A penalty from captain Marc Limbert and a goal from substitute Karl Noon gave Bangor the win as Griffiths' dismissal further undermined the champions.
