Local lads Sion Edwards and Les Davies got the Citizens off to a flying start in front of 782 at the Book People Stadium in awful playing conditions on Friday evening.

Despite an excellent pitch, the strong, almost gale-force winds weren't helping the players at all, but Edwards took advantage on 14 minutes as his floated free-kick beat debutant Lee Kendall in the Prestatyn goal.

Les Davies doubled the advantage, when he touched home from a Chris Simm knockdown to make it 2-0 to City on 17 minutes. There were no further goals in the 1st half, as the rain lashed down and the wind blew, but the home team coped better with elements to deserve their lead.

Playing into the wind second-half, Andy Parkinson narrowly missed an opportunity to halve the deficit for the Seasiders, with Citizens 'keeper Lee Idzi once again in fine form. And it proved decisive as shortly afterwards, Peter Hoy turned in the third in a crowded Prestatyn box on 71 minutes. Prestatyn continued to try and get back into the match and Idzi continued to deny the visitors until Jason Price finally found the back of the Bangor net from close range with 12 minutes remaining.

Town gave themselves a fighting chance of snatching a point with two minutes to play as Price netted his second to set up a nail-biting climax and Mike Parker, who was once of Bangor, had the last laugh with the injury time equaliser.
