Sat 9 Sep 14:30 - Huws Gray Alliance League - Huws Gray Alliance Full time

Last gasp winner for the Town

Ruthin come from 2 behind Twice to snatch a Point.

Ruthin started brightly for their first home game of the season but it was Holywell who opened the scoring with a fine header from Mark Winslade at the fat post. Holywell settled and started to dominate the game. Stever Thomas made it two on 25 minutes and Ruthin had a mountain to climb. Llyr Morris cut the defecit by gaining and scoring a penalty on 34 minutes and Sam Jones equalised just before half time with a wonder free kick in the top corner.
Holywell had their own penalty just after the break due to a push being penalised whilst defending a corner, Jamie McDaid converted. When Gareth Sudlow restored Holywell's two goal advantage with another header from a corner with half an hour to go Holywell looked in control. However, Llyr Morris again gave Ruthin hope on 78 minutes and both Ruthin players and fans began to believe. A frantic ten minutes ensued with Holywell now showing some nerves. With time running out Ruthin were awarded a free kick a long way out near the right touchline. As Tom Roberts lined up to take it the entire ground believed that he would hit the ball into the box. This included Joe Griffith, the Holywell goalkeeper, who had set up close to his far post. Tom took a left footed kick which curved past the near post directly into the goal much to the delight of most of the crowd. Only Tom will know if he meant it. As the referee blew his whistle just after the re-start Ruthin had once again gained points with the last kick of the game.
