Differing fortunes for Bangor as Aber tighten up


Tomos Hughes

TWO contrasting outcomes earned Bangor City four points in their double-header against Aberytwyth Town.

City followed up thier 7-1 win at the Book People Stadium with a goalless stalemate at the Park Avenue.

Aber took heed of the lesson dealt to them in Nantporth, by fielding a five-man defence.

The first half saw new right-back Ryan Edwards threaten with a shot that went agonisingly over, before clearing an effort off the line from dimunitive Jordan Follows.

The second half passed without incident unfortunately for Bangor, coming closest through left-back Liam Brownhill.

The citizens were dealt a blow late on however, when James Brewerton was sent off for a challenge on Glyndwr Hughes, leaving a bitter aftertaste to an unspectacular.

The first face-off brought a decidedly different result, as the home side found the net on no less than seven occassions.

Chris Jones got the citizens’ ball rolling on 5 minutes when Chris Jones drove home from close range, before Sion Edwards doubled the lead with a lofted finish a minute later.

The hosts were three up after nine minutes, when defender Stuart Jones diverted a Chris Simm cross into his own net.

Aber held out for another eleven minutes, until Wyn Thomas turned a Chris Jones cross into his own net.

The vistors hit back through Jordan Fellows on 24 minutes, only for Edwards to notch his second six minutes later with a spectacular dipping strike.

And the winger completed his first-half hat-trick on 35 minutes, firing low to beat the hapless James Wood in goal, and give his side a five goal cushion going into the break.

The second half saw a somewhat different pattern emerge, with the home support having to wait a further 21 minutes for the net to ripple, this time courtesy of Simm strike.

Having built up a heavy lead in ruthless fashion, Nev Powell’s men were happy to see the game out comfortably, in what was a perfect response to defeat at Newtown the previous weekend.
