The first chance of the game came in the opening minute when Harry Galleotti broke free for the visitors but fired wide.
Borough then enjoyed some pressure without troubling the Llangefni back 3 who defended at all costs. The opening goal arrived on 15 minutes when Adam Buckley was adjudged to have fouled Galleotti to give Llangefni a penalty which Iwan Jones fired home.
The responce from Conwy was excellent and a passage of play saw Tommy Creamer played in but his shot hit the bar and the ball was cleared to safety.
Both sides continued to see plenty of the ball without to much goalmouth action but on 40 minutes Sion Hogan broke free and fired home to level the scores.
The 2nd half saw both sides cancel each other out as the game was mostly played in the midfied areas. On 66 minutes Llangefni got the winner when Nathan Williams was penalised for a foul and from the resulting free kick Conwy keeper Ceirion Hall choose to punch the ball and James Saxon reacted quickest to head the ball over a crowd of players and into the net.
This opened the game up and both sides started to create more opportunities without either keeper being tested. As the game went into injury time Conwy pressed for an equaliser and as Jack Hoult’s shot rebounded into a group of players Llangefni’s Steve Kehoe was adjudged to have committed an office amongst the melee that followed and was shown a 2nd yellow card followed by a red.The game ended 2–1 to the visitors who claimed the 3 points.
After the game we caught up with manager Gareth Thomas was very disappointed with the result: “Yet again we have lost a game through set plays and conceded another easy goal. I have no problem with the penalty as it looked a stone wall one in my opinion. The players looked edgy tonight early on but setttled down and knocked the ball around well at times. We didn’t break them down enough and created few chances.
We have thrown the game away and must dust ourselves down and go again Saturday in the FAW Trophy.
The lads have now passed the advantage to Llangefni and in my opinion the league is now in their hands as so we have to keep going and pick up every available point to put pressure on them and hope they drop points.
Good luck to Llangefni in the FAWTrophy saturday but im sure Chris will be miffed that he will lose one of his influential players due to a refereeing decision which could prove costly
