Bangor bounced back from two defeats with a battling 2-1 win over Bala Town at Farrar Road before a crowd of more than 650, the best of the season so far.  

The pre match news surrounded midfield choices with Neil Thomas and Craig Garside getting the nod whilst Kyle Wilson started up front alongside Les Davies who enjoyed a fine evening against the hard pressed Bala backline.  

And they did so the hard way after falling behind in the sixth minute, despite Sion Edwards testing Terry McCormick with a clean low strike from Kyle Wilson's low cross at the Farrar End.  

The unlikely goalscorer for Bala was former Buckley and Rhyl defender Rees Darlington who crossed right footed from the left and celebrated as his shot evaded and all sundry to end up the back of the Bangor net.

Bangor responded through Sion Edwards whose low driven shot rushed at Kyle Wilson who lifted over from close range.   Former blues striker Lee Hunt went close for Bala and minutes later Peter Doran brought a great save from Lee Idzi with a powerful low strike. Midway through the half Jamie Brewerton crossed but Peter Hoy was unluckily denied by McCormick with Kyle Wilson also in close proximity.

On the half hour though City deservedly drew level. Michael Johnston fed Kyle Wilson who crossed from the right and Les Davies netted from close range. This was the big left footer's 50th Welsh Premier league strike for Bangor.   Bangor might have taken the lead but McCormick denied Les Davies who headed goalwards from Peter Hoy's deep cross. So honours even as the bovril beckoned and all to play for in the second half.


Goalscorer Darlington was replaced by England Non League international Mike Byron before the restart but it was Bangor who looked the brighter in the second period.  

City went close soon after the restart as Sion Edwards' freekick hit the Bala wall and flew out for a corner. McCormick rushed out to challenge as Kyle Wilson ran on goal, crashed his clearance against the blues striker but was relieved to see the rebound fly spin wide of his empty goal.   And it was no surprise when City took the lead ten minutes after the restart. McCormick screwed a goalkick to Chris Jones who ran and crossed from the right,  Les Davies was on hand to drive home after Sion Edwards shot had deflected into his path. This took The Truck's tally of goals for the season to ten.  

Ten minutes further on and Kyle Wilson fired over then substitute Byron saw his powerful header saved by Lee Idzi. The high point of the evening in some ways came next as Sion Edwards unleashed a thirty yard freekick which crashed against the angle of crossbar and upright. Reports suggest it has now stopped shaking. Moments later Sion Edwards created more uncertainty in the visitors defence, Les Davies turned and shot but John Irving cleared of his line. 

 Lee Idzi then denied Lee Hunt and was forced to dive at the feet of Mason who had replaced Steve Brown. Bangor worked openings which saw shots from Les Davies and then Peter Hoy blocked.

By now though the mainstage was occupied by referee Bryn Markham Jones who - after a quiet first half - proceded to dish out nine yellow cards which reached a crescendo with the added time "second yellow" dismissal of City left back Chris Roberts for two pretty soft challenges. Harsh in the extreme.  

But overwhelmingly this evening was a success for City who moved back to the top of the table and sent fans home happy from the final evening match ever at Farrar Road,
