Football: Mynydd Isa fall at the final hurdle

MYNYDD Isa suffered final heartache as they were made to pay the penalty at Wrexham’s Racecourse ground in the NEWFA Challenge Cup on Tuesday night.

Lex XI took the lead on six minutes but Paul Connolly levelled and Neil Wynne put Isa in front before the break. But the Wrexham side came back in the second half to take the game into extra time

The match then went to the dreaded shootout, where Lex emerged 4-2 winners after Mynydd saw their first kick saved before Wynne fired over.
