For the second week running the game was played in gale force winds and as last week we defended against it in the first half. Ben Darlington playing in goal for the first time in a long while was busy from the first minute and pulled off some great saves to keep the score down. It was no surprise when the visitors took the lead in the 6th minute through Sion Ewart and then a second arrived in the 21st minute from Iolo Dafydd. Things got even worse for us a minute later when Kieran Smith was shown a straight red card for bringing a forward down when he was last man. Then on the stroke of half time Iolo Dafydd added his second to make the score 3-0.

A sloppy start at the start of the second half allowed the visitors to add a fourth from Llyfr Davies to make it 4-0. Despite the scoreline and being a man down we continued to make a game of it and in the 56th minute Jaden Jones scored a great goal and two minutes later Jac scott added a second to make it 4-2. We continued to push for more goals but Bow Street always looked dangerous on the break and fortunately for us Ben Darlington continued his fine performance of the first half to keep us in it. Then in the 79th minute following a great move Ben Jones scored to make it 4-3. This set up a grand stand finish but despite our best efforts we could not find the equalizer our second half performance deserved.
