ABERFFRAW improved their chances of a Lock Stock Welsh Alliance Division Two top six finish with an impressive 2-1 success at Penmaenmawr Phoenix.

Just one game third and fourth tier game involving teams from the region survived the weather, with Aber taking full advantage to move into eighth spot in the standings with games in hand on the majority of sides around them.

The away side got off to a strong start and made the most of their possession in early stages, which culminated in Nathan Moor hitting the target to open the scoring on 21 minutes.

This sparked the out-of-form home side into life and they levelled proceedings on 39 minutes when Charles Thompson finished well after an improved period of possession to go into the break all square.

After the interval saw both sides miss chances in the opening exchanges, but the critical moment arrived on 76 minutes when the prolific Moore latched on to a through ball before tucking away his second of the afternoon to seal the tie.
