Uchafbwyntiau Sgorio highlights

COLWYN BAY came from a goal down to beat Cefn Druids 4-1 at the 4 Crosses Arena to make it 21 league wins in a row and stay 12 points clear at the top of the JD Cymru North.

Druids took a 28th minute lead on the break, but after Dylan Allshorn equalised on the stroke of half-time, second half goals from Stefan Edwards, Cai Owen and Guto Williams secured the points.

The Bay suffered a first half blow when skipper Tom McCready had to go off with an injury and they struggled to really trouble Druids keeper Michael Jones, although he did make an excellent double to save to deny Tom Creamer and then Matty Hill.

Druids broke quickly from that escape and Stefan Jones broke clear to fire past the advancing Jack Crichton to the visitors in front.

They looked taking that lead into half-time but three minutes into added time Druids failed to deal with a free kick into the area and Dylan Allshorn rifled an equaliser into the roof of the net from close range.

The Bay then dominated much of the second half, but missed a chance to take the lead when Lewis Sirrell fired a penalty award against the foot of a post.

They were not to be denied, however, and three minutes later great work by Alex Downes on the right opened up the chance for Stef Edwards to fire the Bay in front.

On 75 minutes substitute Sam Hart broke free on the left from a great pass by Lewis Sirrell and chipped a clever ball over the keeper. It wsas probably going in anyway, but Cai Owen raced in to make sure it went over the line.

The Bay also had a goal ruled out for offside before a pin point free kick by Ryan Edwards was headed into the net by Guto Williams, five minutes after coming on as a substitute, for his second goal of the campaign.

Manager Steve Evans was delighted with his side’s third home win of the week.

“I said at the beginning of the week we were looking for maximum points and we ticked them off one game at a time and we’re in a good position.

“First half I wasn’t happy with. We controlled it but we didn’t ask enough questions of them.

“On that pitch, to not play the football that we could have played first half is disrespectful to the groundstaff because they’ve been fantastic – we’ve had three games on it.

“To have three games back to back and for it to be in this condition is superb – credit to Arthur and the rest of the groundstaff.

“Second half we came out and had a lot more intensity and a lot more purpose about our game and got our rewards.”

Steve added that skipper Tom McCready was taken off as a precautionary because of a groin injury.
