Smash n' grab for Pool


Jonny Drury

It was a smash and grab raid in front of the newly refurbished stand at Maesdyre as Russell Cadwallader’s Welshpool snatched a late win over Llanrhaeadr.

Despite being under strength Marc Griffiths’ Waterfallmen went 2-0 up thanks to goals from Iwan Matthews and Mikey Roberts.

However Ian Probert equalised for the Lilywhites with 20 minutes to go, before two goals in two minutes at the end of the game turned the match on its head.

Will Thomas equalised before he was brought down in the box for Probert to smash the winner home from the penalty spot.

A pulsating game at Forest Road saw the sides share the spoils thanks to a last minute Penrhyncoch strike.

It was end to end stuff from the start as Jack Biggs bulleted a header home to hand Hay the lead, before Jonathan Evans struck to level things before the break.

And moments after the re-start Evans was at it again, handing the Roosters the lead.

From a tight angle Rob McNamara drew the home side level, but in this topsy turvey tussle, the visitors again got their noses in front thanks to Nathan Warren.

Again Hay fought back, first with McNamara, and then as they clocked ticked over 90 minutes, Biggs thought he had won it with another header.

But it wasn’t to be as a superb free-kick from Dylan James snatched a point for Penrhyncoch in the 96th minute.

Meanwhile Llandrindod Wells stayed top with a 2-1 victory over Carno at Broadway on Friday evening.

Darren Murphy put the home side in front after 10 minutes, before a stunning strike from Ashley Jones doubled their advantage before the break.

Steve Jones converted from an Ash Owen cross in the second half for the Greens, but Llandod hung on for the three points.
