On a Sunny evening the Juniors visited Arriva in the Dargie Cup. The Juniors started well and after 2 minutes Ioan Thomas struck the post he repeated this on 5 minutes and maybe the Juniors should have been two up.However on 11 minutes Arriva attacked and Dion Williams scored.
On 13 minutes Roberts the Juniors keeper saved well from Scott Hughes but the Juniors continued to press and Allaway headed goalwards on 18 minutes but Williams saved.The Juniors then took control and Heycock fired over the bar on 20 minutes then on 21 minutes Williams saved Allaways shot and he repeated this on 29 minutes.Scott Hughes was a danger and on 35 minutes his shot was saved by Roberts the Juniors keeper.On 43 minutes Hughes fired wide of the target. Half Time 1v0. On 52 minutes Scott Hughes fired wide again but Ioan Thomas for the Juniors did the same on 56 minutes.On 60 minutes Aron Owen came close as he fired a shot that hit the base of the Arriva post.On 66 minutes Arriva's Dion Williams fired wide.The Juniors strived manfully for the equalizer and on 73 minutes after a Gardiner shot Allaway slotted home from close range.On 75 minutes Roberts saved well from Hughes for the Juniors. As the match appeared to be going to extra time Arriva attacked the ball jumped up off Rhodri Williams's toe and struck his arm a penalty was given which Scott Hughes scored.The Juniors continued to attack and Mguire's shot was well saved by Williams in the home goal.Final Score 2v1.For Arriva Scott Hughes shone as did Rhodri Williams for the Juniors.It was a competitive match played in good spirit and the Juniors might think themselves unlucky over the course of 90 minutes.However they need to score their created chances this is paramount at Abergele in the NWCFA Junior Cup.
