BRO Ffestiniog were unable to cause a stir at the WRU National League Division One North summit as they fell to a 36-5 loss at Llandudno.

The Goats went ahead on 20 minutes when talented back Arthur Lennon touched down to open the scoring, and this was swiftly followed by another from the home side when Dan O’Sullivan rounded off a fine team move with 25 gone.

The second try was converted by returning talisman Ryan Pike, but the Quarrymen found a route back into the tie just before the break when Edwin Roberts powered his way over.

It proved to be one-way traffic after the interval, with former skipper Morgan Owen touching down within five minutes of the restart, with Pike adding the extras, and overseas signing Santiago Mentesana was next to go over to further extend the hosts’ advantage with 56 on the clock.

Pike despatched another conversion attempt to all-but secure victory, and it was former Nant Conwy standout Lennon that had the final say with two late tries to put the exclamation point on proceedings.
