FOOTBALL

JD Sports Welsh Premier League
Aberystwyth Town 2-3 Bangor City
Traditionally a battle of the university towns, Bangor’s first meeting with Aber this season had more edge than usual as they faced former manager Nev Powell. The first half was a stalemate, but under the glare of the Sgorio cameras, the second half proved a classic.

Aber drew first blood as Luke Borelli volleyed home shortly after the hour mark. Gary Taylor Fletcher came off the subs bench to level with his second touch on 65 minutes. All looked won for City when Brayden Shaw headed home in the 89th minute, but almost immediately, Borrelli – who had been on top form all evening – squared the ball to Jamie Hobson to restore parity. The drama at Park Avenue only reached a definite climax when Steven Hewitt rifled home from just outside the box in the 93rd minute.

Bangor clinched their first away win of the campaign to climb to fourth in the table – while Aber still scrape the bottom with just one point from their opening six games.

Huws Gray Alliance
FC Queen’s Park 2-2 Holyhead Hotspur
Hotspur wasted a two goal lead upon their first trip to a Wrexham side still learning the ropes about second-tier football since promotion. John Littlemore tipped the game in Holyhead’s favour at the break and Rees Brown headed in their second just after the break. That led to Mike Latham’s response five minutes later, before Barry Torrence equalised to deny the visitors all three points.
Porthmadog 2-1 Airbus UK Broughton
After Wednesday’s defeat at Holyhead, Port responded in fine style by beating the league leaders. Sion Bradley set up Joe Chaplin to take the lead on 23 minutes, only for Mark Jones to level for the Wingmakers. But Chaplin cooly grabbed his second after the break, and despite a tense second half, Port keeper Richard Harvey helped to shut out Airbus and claim a huge victory which keeps them in the top three.
