KINMEL Bay concluded their Lock Stock Welsh Alliance Division Two away fixtures with a thrilling 4-4 draw at Y Felinheli.

Andy Thomas’ side mounted a fine second half fightback to secure a share of the spoils on the road, with the result leaving them in seventh spot ahead of their final fourth-tier contest at home to Penmaenmawr Phoenix on April 20.

Things did not begin well for the away side as they fell behind after just eight minutes when prolific midfielder Gruff John found some space and finished well.

The home side were in rampant mood during the opening exchanges and doubled their cushion on 17 minutes when Rhys Parry hit the target, but the Bay bounced back well and got themselves back into the tie when forward Anthony Jones despatched their first of the afternoon on the half hour mark.

This joy proved to be short-lived as the hosts restored their two-goal advantage when Ifan Emyr powered an attempt into the net on 40 minutes, and Bay’s hopes of salvaging something from the game looked bleak when Parry converted his second of the game two minutes after the restart.

The visitors remained undeterred and began their comeback with a Kie Ellis strike on 55 minutes, and the in-form striker was on hand to put away another opportunity with 65 gone to bring them back to within one.

Their incredible effort in the final quarter of the game brought with it further reward, and Ellis capped off an exceptional individual display with his hat-trick on 76 minutes to level proceedings and ensure Thomas’ men had something to show from a pulsating affair.
