FC Mally 3
Royal Oak 2
Benn Lundstram struck twice to reach 10 goals for the season as Mally ended Oak’s impressive recent run of wins.
Lundstram opened the scoring with a 20 yard effort before Josh Brown equalised with a superb 25 yard free kick.
The lively Lundstram edged Mally ahead again straight from kick off and five minutes later Francesco Gallina made it 3-1.
A penalty was awarded to the visitors and Matty Rees converted to make it 3-2, setting up a tense finish.
Mally played with 10 men for the final 10 minutes due to Jamie Moorhouse being given his marching orders for dissent, but Andy Colville’s men held on for a great win.
Colville praised his team, who grabbed a win against an in-form side despite having a fit bare 11 and four players carrying knocks on the bench.
“No Lee Ellis, no Stevie Jones, no Mike Lundstram, no Joel Lloyd – no problem for the boys in pink,” he said.
Oak manager Mark Dudley said: “All round, it was a good game.”
Rhyl Wanderers 1
Six Bells 2
League top-scorer Macca Lewis notched his 11th goal of the season as Six Bells came from behind to take a narrow win at admirable battlers Rhyl Wanderers.
Beaten 2-1 the previous weekend by Y Clwb, Bells had started that game very slowly.
They knew on this occasion making a stronger start was imperative as they have regularly this season given themselves too much to do later on in games.
Unfortunately, it was much the same from the Bells. Chances were created, but no-one looked sharp.
Callum Foster down the right cut in well and played a good ball in but Lewis was stretching for it and his header went wide.
Good work from Aaron Dodwell down the right led to Bells’ biggest chance of the half.
The midfielder took on two opponents, could have gone down for a penalty but stayed on his feet and his ball in was met by Chris Bower, whose header was saved by Max Jones.
Wanderers were knocking the ball about really well and scored a lovely goal as great work from ex-Bells midfielder Luke Bradshaw saw him feed a through ball to Joe Smith, who finished clinically.
Moments later and it could have been two after Will Smith went on a great run but his shot was saved well by Rob Lloyd.
Half-time: Wanderers 1 Six Bells 0
After an interval roasting from the manager, Bells came out firing for the second half.
Great work from the ever-impressive Ellis Blench saw him pick out Lewis, whose shot was well saved.
It was attack after attack for about 15 minutes and Six Bells were awarded a penalty after Josh Blench put a ball in which hit Owen on the hand. Lewis kept his cool from the spot to make it 1-1.
Six Bells pushed for a winner and were awarded a corner after good play from Foster. The flag kick was taken by Ellis Blench and it went all the way in to put Bells ahead
Wanderers rallied well, hitting the woodwork twice following a free kick.
After surviving that scare Bells broke away. After Dodwell won the ball back with a nice tackle and drove up the pitch he found Lewis, but a brilliant last ditch tackle from Michael Bellis prevented the scoreline being 3-1.
