A SUPERB first half display saw Colwyn Bay secure a comfortable 4-1 home win over Guilsfield.

The Seagulls’ emerged from a tricky JD Cymru North fixture with all three points to continue their impressive recent run of form, and Craig Hogg’s men go in search of a fourth win in five outings this Saturday when they travel to struggling Corwen (2.30pm).

The home side started the game on the front foot and almost went ahead when Julian Williams’ powerful effort was brilliantly diverted by Mike Jones, and Tom McLean fired over soon after following some more good work in the build-up.

Their persistence finally paid off on 28 minutes when in-form striker Mitchell Bryant latched on to a wayward back pass to best Jones and fire into an empty net.

This swung the game firmly in the hosts’ favour and they took full advantage on 36 minutes when Williams produced a composed finish after Sion Edwards had charged down an attempted clearance.

They managed to finish the half off in outstanding fashion when Bryant despatched his second of the afternoon with a well-placed finish to all-but seal three points before the break.

After the interval saw the Guils’ get themselves back into the game on 48 minutes when Adam Jenkins’ long-range effort took a huge deflection past Andy Coughlin to give the visitors a lifeline.

The Bay stopper had to be at his best following the restart when he denied Jenkins his brace with an exceptional save, and Andrew Ford also fluffed his lines from a promising position when he somehow headed over from six yards.

Hogg’s men weathered the storm and held firm in the face of some consistent pressure, and they made sure of things in the closing stages when Bryant rounded of another incredible display in front of goal with his hat-trick to wrap things up and end the Guils’ six-match unbeaten run.
