A Great Result

WRU DIVISION 2 N

SATURDAY NOVEMBER 24th

BANGOR 21 – 17 LLANIDLOES

The Citizens pulled off a surprise defeat over the mid Wales team in an exciting game at Cae Milltir. Both sides had problems resulting in players playing out of position and uncontested scrums were used. Bangor looked to be heading for a big defeat, penned into their own half and letting wing forward Andrew Williams cross the line twice in the first 15 minutes. Conversions from Adam Price put the visitors 14 points up. Bangor showed great fighting spirit and managed to get going with a move to winger Sion Davies who set up a kick and chase to the corner and was unfairly knocked off the grounding so the referee awarded a 7 point penalty try. Their enthusiasm continued and  Morys Williams went in for a try converted by Steffan Owen to level the score at the break.

Bangor were penalised for offences at almost every break down and lost the lead when Llanidloes finally opted to take a kick at goal and Price slotted the ball over. Bangor stormed back with spirit and forward Tom Yardley added to his growing tally of tries this season with a match winning effort. Owens conversion was critical as it gave Bangor a 4 point lead. The visitors might have won at this late stage as they had opportunities to kick for goal but opted to go for a 5 pointer. Bangor’s defence was stretched to the limit and they won a rare penalty on time and kicked the ball dead to end the game.

This win sees Bangor go above Rhyl and Colwyn Bay in the table and they play Rhyl at home  next week and Colwyn Bay away the following week so they have a great chance to make their position secure.
