CONWY Borough were undone by a sensational second half display in their 3-0 defeat at Prestatyn Town.

The Tangerines had no answer for a rampant Town side and had nothing to show for their efforts after another disappointing display, with manager Gareth Thomas hoping for better fortune when his side host Penrhyncoch on Saturday (2.30pm).

The home side opened the game on the front foot and almost went ahead after just two minutes when recent signing Oli Buckley forced Keighan Jones into a smart save after some neat approach play in the build-up.

Gradually the visitors began to see more of the ball and they carved open the Town defence on 16 minutes when the returning Leigh Craven put in Corrig McGonigle, but his effort was diverted brilliantly by Ryan Roberts to keep the scores level.

Ian Griffiths was looking lively for the hosts and he saw a shot hit the side netting midway through the half, and the former Prestatyn Sports standout dispossessed a Boro’ defender in a dangerous position soon after but he was denied a goalscoring opportunity thanks to a fantastic last-ditch tackle.

Jones had to be at his best on 34 minutes when he pulled off a sensational double stop to deny Buckley and skipper Alex Jones, and the former failed to convert from close range after an Alec Williams effort forced a goalmouth scramble just before the break.

After the interval saw the Seasiders finally break the deadlock on 49 minutes when the outstanding Buckley produced a clinical finish past Jones, and things got even better for the home side soon after when Griffiths produced a fine header to double their advantage on 53.

The rampant home side sealed the points on 69 minutes when Jones turned a left-footed shot into the net for their third, and Neil Gibson’s men saw out the remainder of the game in comfortable fashion to claim a vital three points.
