As always we expected a good test from this fixture and that's exactly what we had, the game started with Connah's Quay gaining momentum and putting our defence under pressure but Cian' IrfanHuw and Harry plus Dylan in goal kept their focus and kept a clean sheet but steadily the boys gained a foothold in the game and applied pressure of their own and caused a mistake from the goalkeeper which Finley pounced on and cooly finished in the bottom corner to give us the lead but must be said somewhat against the run of play but that's to our boys credit, a negative was that Harvey had to come off early on when he was feeling poorly and could not carry on much to his frustration.
H/T - 1-0
The second half started at a similar tempo with both teams pushing to gain momentum and now seeing much more of the ball and now creating chances it must be said Harry Rees was now dictating the pace in midfield alongside Louie with George and Finley showing good wide play and Osian leading the line and putting the Quay defence under pressure, our second goal came after a strong run by Harry Rees down the left beating three markers and squaring the ball where Osian was ready with a fine finish at the far post.
Credit goes to the Connah's Quay boys for maintaining their work ethic and duly got their rewards via a really well taken goal from the edge of the box with ten minutes to go the game was now played at a fierce pace and from a corner it seemed the away team were certain to score but Maddox made an excellent save to keep the score line intact.
F/T - 2-1
