Bala defeated high-flying Flint to earn a welcome triumph

BALA Town finally returned to victory with a dominant 3-1 victory over Cymru’s top Premier League players Flint Town United.

The Lakesiders led at the break after a controlled performance in the first half thanks to a header from Dave Edwards just before half-time.

It was then Ollie Shannon who added a quick brace in the second half to send the Lakesiders back on track to victory.

Jack Kenny picked up one for Flint, but Colin Caton’s side held on for all three points.

Antony Kay had a first effort that didn’t have the power to beat Jonathan Rushton in Flint’s goal.

Then it was Kieran Smith’s turn to test the Silkmen shooter as he forced him to make a superb save with his feet to keep him scoreless.

At the other end, Conor Harwood’s shot forced Alex Ramsay to make a great save and as half-time approached the Lakesiders took the lead.

Dave Edwards perfectly read Brad Bauress’ corner to meet him at the near post and direct the ball out of the woodwork.

Flint looked more menacing after the break as they aimed for a leveler.

The handball penalty calls were ignored and on the other end Bala claimed a kick on goal when Sean Smith fell into the box with the referee failing to do so.

Bala quickly extended his advantage via Shannon’s powerful shot and the same player put the game to bed a few minutes later with Bala’s third.

He almost caught a quick-fire hat-trick, with his shot creeping excruciatingly right next to it.

Jack Kenny recovered a goal with little time to play, but Bala defended his two-goal lead in the remaining minutes to secure a victory vital to get back on the winning streak.
