Reserves lose out in top of table clash
The top two clashed with Penycae needing the points as Chirk AAA have games in hand. Neither team played any flowing football and it turned into more of a battle than a passing game. Chirk AAA started off the strongest and maybe should have taken there chances as we took the lead on 17 minutes as Tom Smith raced clear to slot home. Two minutes later Smith extended our league in much the same fashion. We had chances to extend our lead but could'nt find the net. Chirk AAA were gifted a life line on 30 minutes when some poor defensive play allowed them to pull one back before half time. Second half was a case of staying compact and when the ball was lobbed back in to the our box aimlessly on 55 minutes only for it to be fumbled into our own net. Neither team created many chances then until 75 minutes when Chirk AAA long ball tactics payed off and a mix up in our back line allowed there striker to lob into a empty net. The last ten minutes we pushed for a leveler and where turned down our appeals for a penalty when Leighton Edwards pulled down Ian Mathias only for the referee to judge it being outside the box. A disappointing result as we threw away a two goal lead.
