PRESTATYN Sports were unable to cause a stir at the Lock Stock Welsh Alliance Division One summit as they were beaten 5-1 at Holyhead Hotspur.

The current basement dwellers were undone by a clinical display from the Holy Islanders’ to leave them with nothing to show from a committed performance, leaving Sion Williams and John Hargreaves’ side with just one point from their opening 12 league games.

The home side made an imposing start to proceedings and went ahead on 11 minutes when Alex Jones finished well following a period of pressure, and the same man was on hand to double their cushion with another well-taken effort with 33 on the clock.

Credit to the visitors for a strong response to their latest setback, and they got a route back into the contest on 36 minutes when Kris Owen took advantage of some rare space to half the deficit.

This joy proved to be short lived as Spurs’ ended the half on a high and took a two-goal lead into the break thanks to a successful Deian Parry opportunity with 37 gone.

After the interval saw the hosts continue to lay siege to the Sports’ rear-guard, who finally relented despite some heroics early on when prolific forward Asa Thomas, who recently re-joined the club from Holyhead Town, tucked away another chance on 75 minutes to all-but secure the points.

There was still time for the home side to rub further salt into the visitors’ wounds, and they netted for the fifth and final time on 78 minutes when another outstanding period of possession presented a chance to Dean Garmey, who despatched the attempt to complete the scoring.

Sports will be hoping for better fortune during their next outing at home to last season’s runners-up Bodedern Athletic on Saturday.
