Hard working Buckley rue once again missed chances
Buckley Town fail to overcome Mold in the battle at the bottom
Despite the falling rain, the pitch passed the referee's inspection just thirty minutes before kick off at 2:30pm.
Both Buckley Town and Mold Alex struggled to come to terms with the very wet conditions during the first opening exchanges.
Slowly Buckley, with James Rumsey made Captain for the day, made inroads into the final third before being caught just offside by the Mold's back four.
On twenty five minutes Mike Thomson received the ball on the right touch line and managed to evade two good tackles. His resulting cross into the box allowed a hard working Mike Cronshaw to execute a simple tap in which put Buckley into the lead.
During the rest of the first half Buckley continued to shade it whilst sadly not being able to convert two half chances.
At the start of the second half Mold emerged as a completely different team as they relentlessly started to pester Buckley's defence. Then on sixty five minutes disaster struck for Buckley. Mold's Jordon Strasford shot took a wicked deflection and gave Buckley's goalkeeper Adam McGee no chance, making it 1-1.
However Buckley responded well to the setback and made two more chances, the most notable of which being Dave Bryan's effort which hit the righthand goal post.
With both sides hungry for the winning goal Mold scored via Jordon Stafford who found some free space in Buckley defence to slot the ball away in the bottom right hand corner to make it 1-2.
The remaining fifteen minutes saw Buckley trying desperately to get a share of the spoils but this evaded them and they just could not convert either of the good two chances that came their way. Unfortunately this has been the problem for most the season, missed opportunities.
Credit must be given to both sides for playing such a competitive game on a very heavy and soggy pitch.
