  Another long trip south to Parc Y Scarlets did not deter Bangor fans who again outnumbered their rivals, this time local boys Port Talbot.
  Bangor went ahead on six minutes after maverick goalkeeper Lee Kendall misjudged Jamie Brewerton's long clearance and Lee Hunt netted.
  Liam McCreesh went close for Port Talbot, likewise Eddie Jebb for Bangor, but on twenty minutes Peter Hoy crossed from the right and Jamie Reed made it two nil with a close range header.
  Scott Barrow worried the blues fans with a couple of freekicks and Kendall did well to keep out Jamie Reed's spectacular overhead kick but at the interval it was Bangor who led two nil.

  But the Steelworks town side were far from beaten and just inside the hour mark Drew Fahiya smashed home from six yards off Martin Rose' pass and with no more than five minutes left on the clock Rose was again the provider as this time Liam McCreesh latched onto his layoff to level the scores.
  In between Bangor had seen loud penalty claims waved away after a foul on Jamie Reed by Rees and Sion Edwards had fired wide after good approach play by Lee Hunt.
  With time running out and extra time looming City won a freekick which Sion Edwards' crossed for Dave Morley to head home over Matthew Rees with Lee Kendall rooted to the spot.
   Referee Dean John added six minutes of agony time but it mattered not as he finally blew and the Bangor contingent celebrated loudly as the cup was won and the presentations began.
  This was a third successive Welsh Cup win for Bangor and manager Nev Powell - a club record.
