Injury-hit Bangor slip back after Rhyl loss
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.
