KINMEL Bay got back on the right track thanks to a 2-1 home win over Aberffraw.

The Lock Stock Welsh Alliance Division Two sides ended a series of disappointing results against a side that secured a Challenge Cup final spot the previous weekend, enabling them to move within one of sixth placed Gwalchmai with a game in hand.

The home side opened the scoring midway through the half when Daniel Wickerson took advantage of some hesitant defending to put the Bay ahead with 27 on the clock.

Things got even better for the hosts soon after in bizarre circumstances on 29 minutes when a clearance got caught in the incredibly windy conditions and reversed course over visiting custodian Caron Hughes to increase their advantage.

Gary Bolton went close to reducing the arrears shortly before the break when he flashed an effort wide on 39 minutes, and Mike Parry’s cross come shot also almost found its way into the net with three remaining of the first period.

After the interval saw the Bay have to withstand heavy pressure in the early stages which they coped with well, but Parry did manage to carve out another opening on 70 minutes only to slice his attempt wide when in a good position.

A nervy ending to the encounter was assured when the away side were awarded a penalty, which was converted in style by Nathan Moore in stoppage time, and the same player had the ball in the net for a second time immediately following the restart only to have the effort ruled out for offside.

The final action saw a frantic goalmouth scramble in the Bay area that eventually saw them remove the danger and secure three points.
