Llanrwst Utd welcomed Barmouth & Dyffryn to Gwydir Park on Saturday, with both teams having an indifferent start in the Welsh Alliance season, both clubs were eager to carry on the winning streak, Llanrwst beating Llandyrnog 2-1 & Barmouth beating Llanberis 4-2 the week before.
The Rwsters were forced into one change from last weeks starting eleven, Hedd Williams coming in for the suspended Elliot Llywellyn. They also welcomed last years captain Gwyn Jones back into the squad after he missed the last few weeks with an Achilles problem.
Barmouth started the game with 3 at the back, this allowed Matt Mullender and Williams to have plenty of joy down either flank in the first 15 minutes, before Barmouth changed to 4 at the back. The best chance of the half fell to Williams. Neat play between Callum & Jac parry with the later releasing Williams, with only the keeper to beat, his low drive was expertly saved by debutant Adam Walters in the Barmouth goal.
With half time approaching, a great ball into the area by Alun Roberts found Leighton Griffiths, but his header was again saved by Walters but Callum Parry was on hand to hammer the ball into the bottom corner from 6 yards out.
Credit to Barmouth, they upped their game in the second half but they couldn't beat Man of the Match, Chris Wright in goal, as he made 3 brilliant saves at key times in the game. Llanrwst Utd best chance in the second half fell to Josh Francis but his effort flew over the bar from a tight angle.
The game nearly boiled over for the second week in a row for the Rwsters, a late tackle on Wright seen players clash but credit to the referee and his linesmen who dealt with it efficiently.
Manager Barry Owen said: We were disappointed only to go in 1-0 at half time after we dominated the first 45. But the second half we couldn't get going, Barmouth made it difficult for us and they were unlucky not to get something from the game.
Llanrwst Utd travel to Llanberis on Saturday, 2pm KO.
