KINMEL Bay extended their unbeaten home record with a 3-3 draw against title-chasing Y Felinheli.

The Lock Stock Welsh Alliance Division Two side were more than a match for their opponents throughout what proved to be an entertaining affair, with Bay going ahead after just three minutes with a sensational free kick from prolific forward Matty Griffiths.

This spurred the hosts on further during a rampant start to the contest, and they increased their advantage on 14 minutes when Jordan Worthington timed his run perfectly before firing a low drive into the bottom corner.

Their joy proved to be short-lived as the visitors made the most of a rare attack on 16 minutes that saw Gruff John turn in an opportunity from a tight angle to half the deficit.

The home side remained undeterred and restored their two-goal cushion soon after the restart when Ashley Woods found himself in a promising position at the far post, and the experienced skipper remained composed to put away the chance with aplomb.

They were unable to hold on to this heading into the break as Owain Jones made the most of the space afforded to him in first half stoppage time to leave things all to play for at the interval.

Bay continued to prove after the break but were unable to make the most of the chances that came their way, with home custodian Gethin Hughes producing an exceptional stop to deny Iwan Owen’s goal-bound attempt at the other end.

Gradually the visitors began to assert their dominance which culminated in an equaliser on 58 minutes through a well-struck set piece from Ryan Cain, leaving the points shared as Matthew Marsh-Evans spurned a good chance for the hosts late on.

The result leaves Kinmel Bay in sixth position in the standings as they gear up for their Take Stock Van Hire Challenge Cup second round clash at Pwllheli this Saturday.
