City lose de­spite hero­ics

Bangor Mail - - SPORT -

BAN­GOR City men’s team lost 3-0 at home to Den­bigh last Satur­day.

Both sides had chances in the open­ing 10 min­utes, with Harri Evans and Tom Hughes forc­ing saves from the Den­bigh keeper, but the vis­i­tors scored with a low shot after 12.

The goal set­tled the away side and they dou­bled their lead from a short cor­ner on the re­bound after a goal-line block from Keith Proudlove.

City con­tin­ued to fash­ion chances, with Dave Paterson and Harry Collins Jones go­ing close. But Den­bigh proved a po­tent threat on the counter and two good saves from Ban­gor keeper Tudur Tren­holme kept the home side in it be­fore half time.

Ban­gor dom­i­nated sec­ond-half pos­ses­sion but failed to con­vert from a string of op­por­tu­ni­ties.

Tats Green­halgh came clos­est to pulling one back for the Blues, but saw his low strike hit the base of the post.

And the vis­i­tors sealed a hard-earned three points five min­utes from time with a smart fin­ish from their young striker, to com­pound a frus­trat­ing af­ter­noon for the Cit­i­zens.

De­feat sees Ban­gor re­main 10th in NWHL Divi­sion 5 South. They head to Ys­gol John Bright this Satur­day to take on Llan­dudno 1sts (3.30pm).
