BLAENAU Ffestiniog Amateurs moved back to the Lock Stock Welsh Alliance Division Two summit with a dramatic 5-4 victory at Amlwch Town.

The promotion hopefuls were given a real scare by the basement dwellers to emerge with the points, which leaves them three ahead of Glan Conwy having played two games more.

A blistering start saw the visitors go two-up within the first eight minutes thanks to a brace from Bryn Humphries, before Jordan Edney got Town back into the contest with 13 on the clock.

This joy proved to be short-lived as a two-goal salvo from Sion Roberts on 14 and 28 minutes pulled the away side further clear, before Rhys Roberts gave the hosts a glimmer of hope after the break on 57.

Julian Jeffries’ superb strike gave the Amateurs a fifth after 70 minutes, but they were given plenty to think about in the final stages as Dan Jones converted two penalties within a six-minute spell.

Despite this, the visitors remained resolute in the face of some stern pressure in the dying moments to seal a crucial three points in their quest for the title.

Aberffraw maintained their current form with a narrow 2-1 home success over Penmaenmawr Phoenix thanks to a brace from Gareth Hughes, with Asa Thomas hitting a double for Holyhead Town in their creditable 3-3 draw at high-flying Kinmel Bay.

Danny Lewthwaite was at the top of his game for Gaerwen, netting twice in their 2-0 triumph at struggling Mochdre Sports.
