Ban­gor on the up af­ter dou­ble joy

Bangor Mail - - SPORT -

FIFTH-PLACED Ban­gor will aim to make it three wins on the bounce in Di­vi­sion Two North when they host im­prov­ing Rhyl this Satur­day (2.30pm).

The Cit­i­zens kept up their good form with a hard-earned 32-25 suc­cess at Llan­gollen last week­end.

The hosts started brightly and af­ter some good phases a nice off­load from Gwyn­daf Davies saw Danny Grif­fiths sprint in from 30 me­tres to score, cen­tre Iestyn Hughes adding the ex­tras.

Im­me­di­ately from the kick off Llan­gollen switched off, which saw Ban­gor re­ply with a try of their own to level the stand­ings.

The buoy­ant vis­i­tors quickly added a sec­ond con­verted try, but Hughes replied with two penal­ties to cut the gap to 13-14.

With the home pack get­ting on top, Llan es­tab­lished good field po­si­tion and flanker Grif­fiths crossed for his sec­ond try, Hughes im­prov­ing with the boot.

With the first half com­ing to the end Llan knocked on five me­tres from the try-line and that mis­take proved costly as Ban­gor worked their way up­field to score a try, mak­ing it 20-19 to the home team at the break.

Winger Harry Pa­ton went over early in the sec­ond half for Llan, but the home side could not push on.

Ban­gor ral­lied with two un­con­verted tries and a penalty to seal the game.

Try-scor­ers for the vis­i­tors were Jonny Pym (2), Ste­fan Owen, Tom Yard­ley and Dyfed Roberts, with Nick Dundee adding two con­ver­sions and a penalty.
