PRESTATYN Town’s recent good run came to an end as they fell to a last-gasp 3-2 home loss at the hands of high-flying Flint Town United.

An incident packed game at the Motion Finance Stadium saw the Seasiders’ downed at the death to ensure they had nothing show from a spirited display, and Neil Gibson’s men turn their attention to the JD Welsh Cup this Saturday at home to Berriew in the third round.

The visitors started the game on the front foot and they opened the scoring after just three minutes when Richie Foulkes converted from the penalty spot, and Town thought they had levelled matters after 13 when Ian Griffiths headed home after an Oli Buckley effort came back off the crossbar, but the goal was chalked off for offside.

They did not have to wait long for another chance with arrived on 19 minutes, and Dan Roberts’ left-footed strike following a corner flew into the net to restore parity to the scoreline.

This provoked a strong response from Niall McGuinness’ side, with regained the advantage on 23 minutes courtesy of a sensational half volley from outside the box by Foulkes that went in off the post, but United were a man down heading into the break when Frankie Antoine was sent off after an altercation with Alex Jones.

After the interval saw Dave Hayes and Buckley both go close for the home side in the opening exchanges, but their persistence paid off on 65 minutes when Danny Davies’ superb shot found its way past Aaron Jones for another equaliser.

Gibson’s men had a golden chance to take the lead for the first time on 75 minutes when Davies was felled in the box, but Griffiths’ penalty was diverted by Jones and the chance was averted.

Things took a turn for the worse after 78 minutes when Chris Bennett and Hayes were both sent off for a rough challenge and dissent respectively, and Town were dealt a cruel blow with the final action of the game when a Jake Hampson thunderbolt condemned them to defeat.
