Corbett Sports WPL - Saturday Results

Great Game at The Book People

BANGOR CITY 3 PRESTATYN TOWN 3

History repeated itself at the Book People Stadium as Mike Parker once again scored in injury time to save a point for Prestatyn. During the Festive Period the Seasiders came from 3-0 down with 12 minutes left to play and Parker netted the third as the fat lady was about to sing. The same thing happened on Saturday as Bangor sniffed their first league victory in eight attempts.

The visitors took the lead after 12 minutes through Andy Parkinson but were dealt a blow after 24 minutes as Jason Price was sent off for a second bookable offence.

John Hill-Dunt deserved special praise as he saved two first half penalties from Chris Simm and Dave Morley.
The Prestatyn stopper was beaten 3 minutes into the second half as Levi Mackin scored on his first start for the Citizens - but Parkinson's 18th league goal of the season reclaimed the lead for Prestatyn 7 minutes later.
However the game was turned on its head with a quarter of a hour to play as Chris Simm and Les Davies netted goals for Bangor within a minute of each other which seemed to have claimed the three points for Nev Powell's side. Simm and Parkinson now share the lead as top WPL goalscorers but it was Parker's late late show that was the talking point once again at The Book People.

THE NEW SAINTS 5 PORT TALBOT TOWN 0

The Champions extended their lead at the top of the Corbett Sports WPL to 10 points by beating Port Talbot at Park Hall on Saturday. Another two goals by Mike Wilde (17 + 61 mins) either side of Alex Darlington's 30th minute effort put the Oswestry outfit firmly in the driving seat before two late goals by Greg Draper and the influential Ryan Fraughan secured the three points for the Saints. Wilde's goals took him past the 100 goal mark in the WPL.The Champions won't have a game next weekend but travel to Broughton to face second placed Airbus UK on the 23rd for a match will have a significant impact on the remainder of the season.

LLANELLI 0 AFAN LIDO 2

Lido's late show stole the points at Stebonheath and secured a fifth victory of the season for the visitors. The turning point of the game came after 80 minutes when ex-Lido man Lee Hartshorn was sent off for a second bookable offence. Four minutes later Luke Borrelli pounced to put his side ahead and Chris Hartland doubled their advantage in injury time. New Lido recruit Damon Thomas' 86th minute dismissal for deliberate handball wasn't enough to dampen Lido's celebrations.
