Hot­spur lose lead to get draw in HGA clash

Bangor Mail - - SPORT - Foot­ball: Huws Gray Al­liance

HOLY­HEAD Hot­spur and Conwy Bor­ough fought to a cred­itable 1-1 draw in their Huws Gray Al­liance clash on Satur­day.

Mel McGui­ness gave Hot­spur the lead early in the se­cond pe­riod, be­fore Con­nor Har­wood lev­elled for Bor­ough.

Hot­spur, who gave a good ac­count of them­selves against an or­gan­ised Conwy side at the New Oval, had Dean Garmey dis­missed.

High fliers Air­bus UK Broughton put their ti­tle pur­suit back on track after sweep­ing aside Llan­rhaeadr 6-2 to move 13 points clear at the top.

Smart­ing from their first league de­feat in 15 out­ings the week be­fore, the Wing­mak­ers made a swift ri­poste as Joe Palmer, Leo Ri­ley’s loop­ing header and Lewis Buck­ley’s penalty carved a three­goal in­ter­val lead against their Mid Wales vis­i­tors.

Joe Chap­lin made it four soon after the break but Llan ral­lied as player boss Marc Grif­fiths headed one back from an Iain Ed­munds cross.

Joe Vaughan fired a se­cond but Air­bus had the last word as Brad McGil­loway rounded off a fine move and James Hooper be­came the sixth scorer with a solo ef­fort to seal an em­phatic win.

Two goals from Jake Roberts, his se­cond five min­utes from time, earned Buck­ley Town a 3-3 draw in a fluc­tu­at­ing clash at mid-ta­ble ri­vals Gres­ford Ath­letic.

Roberts opened the scor­ing for the vis­i­tors on 15 min­utes, but Jor­dan MacCarter re­sponded with the first of his brace for the Lat­ics 13 min­utes later.

Lewis Hone re­stored the Buck­ley lead on the hour, only for MacCarter (73) and Sam Molyneux (82) to put Gres­ford in front de­spite hav­ing Jack Chal­loner dis­missed, be­fore Roberts earned par­ity late on.

Box­ing Day sees a cou­ple of big der­bies on the coast: form sides Porth­madog v Ban­gor City at the Traeth, and Rhyl v Prestatyn Town, both at 2.30.
