After victory over Cefn Mawr last week, Halkyn & Flint Mountain welcomed another Wrexham-based side to Pant Newydd this, Coedpoeth United. Coedpoeth had been on the end of some tough results recently, losing out by a single goal in many cases. Buoyed by last week, Mountain looked for another three points. Mountain welcomed Jack James, Pete Martin and Mark Foster back into the starting line up.
The game started fairly evenly without much incident until the away team opened the scoring after thirteen minutes. On the right, the winger looked to cross the ball, but his over-hit cross looped over a stranded Danny Stanton, hit the post and found the net. Things went from bad to worse shortly afterwards when Stanton was forced off the pitch with a knee injury. This forced Mountain to field an outfield player in goal for the remainder of the game.
As the half drew on, Mountain pressed for an equaliser and eventually found a way through when Pete Martin rose to head past the goalkeeper, meeting a Jack Abraham corner. Just four minutes later and just before half time, Mountain turned the game on it's head and took the lead. Down the right, Jack James crossed to Jack Abraham who arrived at the back post to turn the ball into the net and grab his first Mountain goal.
In the second half, it was Coedpoeth who struck the first blow, getting level when stand-in goalkeeper Tyler Williams could not keep out a shot. Mountain quickly fired back, however, and retook the lead. Jack Abraham was the star of the show once again, as he collected a pass on the outside of the box, held off his marker before turning a firing a shot that was buried into the bottom corner. A couple of minutes later, Mountain had a fourth. Aled Reece did well to hold up the ball. Phil Lloyd picked up from him, drove into the box and smashed the ball past the goalkeeper.
Coedpoeth continued to battle and were rewarded with a third goal to give them hope going into the final ten minutes of the game when they managed to beat Tyler Williams at the near post. Despite this, Mountain held on the claim the points. That result keeps Mountain in third place in the league on goal difference with a game in hand on second placed Greenfield, while Coepoeth sit in tenth place. Next up, Mountain are on the road next Saturday and face league leaders Chirk Town in what should be a great clash.
