GLANTRAETH fell further behind Gwynedd League leaders Menai Bridge Tigers after leaving it late to secure a dramatic 5-5 home draw with Waunfawr.

The recently reformed side managed to salvage a share of the spoils after some late heroics, but they now find themselves ten points behind the long-time pacesetters having reached the same amount of games played.

The visitors started the game well and opened the scoring on 16 minutes when Sion Roberts converted a chance, but this joy proved to be short-lived as Andy Clarke levelled matters shortly after the restart with 20 on the clock.

Things got even better for Traeth just before the break when Liam McCann gave them their first advantage after 33 minutes, and a superb effort from Dylan Hughes on 41 doubled their advantage.

After the break saw the away side come out with a renewed sense of purpose and they got back into the tie with two goals in a minute courtesy of Roberts and Meurig Parry, only for recent signing Jamie Roberts to restore the hosts’ cushion during a frantic period of the contest on 66 minutes.

There was still time for further drama as the visitors stages a tremendous fightback to restore parity to the scoreline on 82 minutes when Ellis Povey finished well, and an unlikely victory looked on the cards when Sion Roberts rounded off a sensational individual display with his hat-trick with 86 gone.

Credit to the home side, they continued to show fight and managed to secure a point with virtually the final action of a pulsating clash when Jamie Roberts sealed his brace in stoppage time.
