In­jury-hit Ban­gor slip back af­ter Rhyl loss

Bangor Mail - - MOTORS -

BAN­GOR were un­able to build on their last two home wins as they lost 22-7 to Rhyl and Dis­trict at Cae Milltir and slipped back down to sec­ond from bot­tom in Di­vi­sion Two North.

The Ci­ti­zens scored af­ter forc­ing play up to the vis­i­tors’ 22. They re­cy­cled to the blind side and Celvin Wil­liams tapped the ball into the cor­ner for winger Gwyn Hughes to score. Tom Belt con­verted from the touch­line.

With five for­wards miss­ing due to in­jury, Ban­gor were dis­mayed to lose cap­tain Ryan But­ler with a knee in­jury and most of the game was spent stoutly de­fend­ing. Rhyl led 10-7 at the in­ter­val adding two more tries and a con­ver­sion af­ter the changeover.

Ban­gor Youth were very un­lucky to lose their Welsh Plate game 8-7 to vis­i­tors Nel­son from South Wales. Ban­gor thought they had a good try dis­al­lowed, but took the lead with a con­verted try in the sec­ond half be­fore Nel­son added a touch­down of their own to an ear­lier penalty.
