BODEDERN Athletic were unable to move back to the Lock Stock Welsh Alliance Division One summit as they fell to a 2-0 loss at Llanberis.

Ricky Williams’ side lost their second game of the week to leave them two points behind title rivals Llangefni Town having played the same amount of games, and they face another away trip this Saturday in their visit to one-time championship contenders Llandudno Albion.

A tense first period saw both sides miss opportunities to get an advantage, but the home side wasted no time in making their presence felt after the interval when an Ifan Mansour strike broke the deadlock just one minute following the restart.

Athletic threw everything at their opponents with a view to getting back on level terms, but they were undone by sucker-punch on 80 minutes when Callum Parry finished well to round off the scoring and leave the visitors’ title destiny out of their hands.

The Division Two championship race is also hotting up as Glan Conwy were downed 3-2 at Llannefydd.

Two quick strikes from Sam Jones and Jared Jones put the hosts in a commanding position after just eight minutes of play, but Glan responded well to the setback and reduced the arrears on the quarter hour mark when prolific forward Jordan Phillips found the net.

Howard Vaughan’s men restored parity to the score-line after the break courtesy of a free-kick from Sam Sinkinson on 52 minutes, but Keiron Jones proved to be the difference with a crucial third for the home side with 65 on the clock as Glan finished the game with just eight men.

Glan must now win their final league game at home to Pwllheli on May 11 to climb above Blaenau Ffestiniog Amateurs, but Pwll’ also remain in the hunt thanks to a 2-1 triumph at Y Felinheli.
