Lakesiders hit Airbus for six in a Friday night friendly.

In a game that saw all of the Town squad have a run out, Bala started the match in the best way possible as Nathan Burke scored with a looping effort from the edge of the box to give Town the lead.

Bala were playing some high tempo football and had numerous opportunities to go further ahead but couldn’t capitalise on their opportunities.

On the half hour mark, Airbus came level when they out-battled Bala off the ball which allowed Hughes to fire into the net.

Ten minutes prior to the interval, Bala added a second of the evening when Sean Smith’s excellent cross found Kieran Smith who’s bullet header flew into the back of the net from 6 yards.

At halftime, changes to both line-ups saw fresh legs introduced and plenty of tactics worked on.

Bala were playing with confidence and went further ahead on 52 minutes as Louis Robles initial effort rattled the base of the post which was duly tucked in on the rebound by Steve Leslie.

Two quickfire goals came midway through the half when firstly Robles drove the ball through the keepers legs to make it 4-1 prior to Mike Hayes making it 5-1 with a superb strike from 10 yards after turning his marker.

Six minutes from time, Bala rounded off their great performance with a sixth when Hayes hit again with a fantastic shot from an acute angle into the top left corner after an attack from the left and a cross to him from Burns.

An useful run out for the lads and a comprehensive win to boot.

Huge thank you to Airbus for hosting us this evening – best wishes for the second half of the season.
