Improved performance sees the Lakesiders pick up a point.
After a rocky start to the season, Town showed flashes of getting back on track with a point against Aberystwyth Town.
Bala started brightly with Nathan Burke driving a shot from range past the post after only 7 minutes of play before two minutes later a Bala chance was hacked off the line by Declan Walker.
The game was very competitive with a high tempo from both sides. Bala’s pressure was mounting with Sheridan deemed offside after a passage of play.
On 28 minutes, Town broke the deadlock. Ashley Morris’ long kick saw Burke race from box to box to win the ball to feed Sheridan, his shot was palmed away by Mullock but Burke was able to slot in the loose ball from 4 yards.
A clash of heads between McKenna and Sheridan saw him withdrawn for Hayes and five minutes of injury time.
Aber won a corner which was whipped in towards the backpost, after the ball bounced around in the box, Spittle was able to knock the ball home from close range bringing play level just on the referee’s whistle.
Bala weren’t disheartened and carried on going in the second half with Davies firing over after 51 minutes.
Ashley Morris made a fantastic body length save to push away Phillips’ powerful strike. Burke then Evans went close down the other end before Hayes’ delivery almost reached Andrai Jones put the forward was unable to reach the incoming ball.
A 25 yard rocket by Evans was fired over the bar prior to Hayes putting a chance narrowly wide 10 minutes from time.
Much improved by the Lakesiders who might be disappointed not to seal all three points but a big step in the right direction. Next up – Bangor City.
