PRESTATYN Sports produced another encouraging display before falling to a last-gasp 4-3 defeat at Penrhyndeudraeth.

The Lock Stock Welsh Alliance Division One basement dwellers had nothing to show from a much-improved performance on their travels, with a stoppage time strike deciding a tense fixture that was played in extremely difficult conditions.

Sion Williams and John Hargreaves’ side face a stern test of their credentials this Saturday when they welcome title-chasing Llandudno Albion to their Gronant base, who will be buoyed by their exceptional FAW Trophy victory at Berriew.

Things did not begin well for the visitors, who gave themselves a mountain to climb early on when Meilir Edwards and Josh Hughes gave the hosts a comfortable advantage within the opening 11 minutes.

Sports reacted well and got themselves on the score sheet courtesy of an Ian Dunn penalty on 17 minutes, only for the home side to restore their two-goal advantage when Rhys Hughes found the net with 33 gone.

After the interval saw the away side increase the tempo considerably and they were on target for a second time on 61 minutes thanks to a neat effort from Mike Jones.

This was followed by another on 84 minutes that came courtesy of Haydn Kivell that looked to have secured a share of the spoils for the second straight week, but their joy proved to be short-lived as Steve Jones popped up in the dying stages to snatch victory for the hosts.
