LLanrug Utd travelled to Gwydir Park in brilliant form, Unbeated in their last 9 games.
The Rwsters were playing their 5th game in 9 days, something that is quite ridiculous and dangerous to say the least.
The game started with both teams looking tired and it had a pre season game feel to it, up until the 15th minute. A pass out by keeper Christian Wright to Leon Doan was intercepted by 'Rug' Right Back James Phillips who raced down the right and his low cross wasn’t dealt with by the Rwsters defence and the ball going in off the shin of Chris Nicolson. 0-1. A goal that was gifted to LLanrug by LLanrwst Utd.
Leon Doran did come close to equalising for Llanrwst but Dylan Roberts was brave, the ball bouncing away to safety.
On 34mins, it was 2-0, Matthew Phillips and David Noel Williams linked up and Gruff John Williams hammered the pall in from 35 yards.
A change in tactics at Half time for the Rwsters, seeing them play a 4-1-3-2 formation, Pushing Leighton Grifffiths upfront to win headers with Luke Roberts working off him. Callum Parry, Aron Hughes and Jac Parry just playing behind them.
This change was a positive one for the Rwsters as they found spaces and were beginning to pull Llanrug defenders out of their comfort zone but a miss place pass was intercepted by Phillips and he put Alun Owen through on goal. He was brought down and left the Referee no choice but to award a penalty. Wright was booked rather than a sending off.
The game was gone for the Rwsters, it was a matter of pride but there was a glimmer of hope for Llanrwst. Dylan Roberts pushed Parry in the back and Referee Peter Kewley awarded a penalty.
Parry missed the resulting penalty, Roberts dived low and saved with his legs.
Matt Phillips did get on the score sheet, he calmly chipped Wright in the 89th minute to make the score slightly flattering, 4-0.
Barry Owen Commented: It was a case of to many games in a short space of time for us. Chris Wright was ill and played against his will, now its a time to re group before Glan Conwy Away.
