Corwen’s first game of October saw them host Bow Street and took place on a cold day in which the rain did not hold up for the whole of the game, meaning that people having to wash the kits would be ecstatic that the game was taking place on a 3G surface.
Early on in the game the away side played a corner into the box, where it was diverted towards goal and cleared off the line, with some of the players claiming that the ball had crossed the line; however the officials did not agree.
In the tenth minute Bow Street went for goal from a free kick on the edge of the box, which goalkeeper David Walsh tipped over the bar. From the resulting corner the ball was played to Sion Ewart, who placed the ball into the top corner of the net to open the scoring.
Corwen looked for parity when a free kick from midfield was played short to Jack Gregory, who played the ball to a teammate, whose shot from distance struck the crossbar and Corwen’s Kevin Day was the first to react to the rebound and headed the ball home; however his celebrations were cut short as he had strayed offside.
Midway through the half a Bow Street throw in was played into the danger area, where Corwen were unable to clear their lines, allowing the ball to be played across to James Whitney who was able to find the back of the net, meaning that Corwen had gone two-nil down for the third game in a row, meaning that they would have to perform a comeback again to match their feats from their previous two outings.
Tom Williams had a couple of opportunities to halve the deficit before the break, firstly when he cut inside and took on John James (not to be confused with the former Corwen manager of the same name) before unleashing a low shot, which hit the outer side netting. Secondly he ran at goal from the wing, but saw his effort curl wide of the post.
After the break Tom turned provider as he played the ball to Kevin Day, who was bearing down on goal before slotting a low shot home to bring Corwen right back into the game.
Two minutes later Scott Evans played a great ball into the box from near the corner flag, where Ryan Billington leapt to try and head at goal; however he lost the aerial battle.
The away side looked to restore their two goal cushion as they hit Corwen on the break, with Ryan Evans shooting at goal, but he saw his shot save by David Walsh.
Just after the hour mark Sion Ewart collected the ball on the edge of the D where he brilliantly curled the ball into the top corner the net for his second goal of the afternoon.
The hosts went in search of a way back into the game and a minute after going two goals down they came close to doing so, but saw a shot cleared off the line.
With twenty-two minutes to go Corwen were awarded a free kick in a dangerous position, which Scott Evans took; however he was unable to repeat his achievements from earlier in the season as he sent the ball over the bar.
With quarter of an hour to play Matthew Williams played the ball from the halfway line to Kevin Day, who crossed the ball into the box, where Andrew Roberts sent his header narrowly wide of the target.
It was checkmate to Bow Street in the eighty-second minute when goalkeeper Llyr Hughes played a long the ball out from the back, which was collected by a Corwen player, who played a short back pass and chased down by Sion Ewart, who lifted the ball over David Walsh to complete his hat-trick.
A few minutes later Sion Ewart was given the opportunity to get his fourth goal of the day as Bow Street were awarded a penalty kick, which he took and got the better of David Walsh to put the final nail in to Corwen’s coffin.
