Raining goals at Maesdu Park!

The horrendous November weather didn’t hinder Town’s away display on Friday evening with an outstanding team performance.

Town could’ve been ahead in the first few minutes when an unmarked Tames was found by Jones on the edge of the box but Matty Williams was able to clear the danger.

Dudno started well to their credit with Toby Jones seeing his chance saved by Morris and then Taylor-Fletcher blazing over from the backpost.

Slightly against the run of play, the Lakesiders took the lead. An opportunity for the home side saw Hughes lose possession which Tames pounced upon and unleash a curling strike into the bottom right hand corner on 21 minutes.

The tide turned in Bala’s favour from the opener as they saw much more of the ball and having another opportunity to go further ahead when a great passage of play involving Horwood and Burns led to the latter delivering a teasing cross towards Venables and backpost but Shaun Pearson making a crucial last ditch save.

Before the interval, Morris was called into action but impressively pushed away John Owen’s six yard volley.

Only six minutes into the second period, Llandudno brought the game back on level terms. New signing Gary Taylor-Fletcher caught the end of a great chip from Williams to volley the ball past Morris.

Bala replied instantly however as Steve Tames took his tally up to 10 goals for the season through his 54th minute volley rocketed in from ten yards.

The goals kept coming as on the 58th minute, Bala added a third as Henry Jones’ stunning left footed shot left Pearson as a spectator as it whizzed into the top corner.

Town’s midfield were delivering an impressive performance with Gosset, Venables and Horwood doing well and allowing Tames and Jones to cause problems for the Dudno backline.

With 76 on the clock, a fourth was scored for the Lakesiders when a Bala freekick came to Venables who’s strong header soared into the net.

Dudno weren’t finished however as in the 89th minute, Taylor-Fletcher added his second of the evening with a goal very similar to his first but Bala’s three points were safe and sound.

Bala will be very pleased with their performance in difficult conditions and with seven goals scored in two games, there is plenty to be happy about at Maes Tegid!
