CORWEN’S failings in-front of goal came back to haunt them as they were beaten 3-1 by Penrhyncoch.

The home side only had a consolation from Eilir Edwards to show for their efforts as Tom Williams, Joe Williams and Dale Davies missed good chances.

“We’ve had three or four really good chances to score more than the one goal,” said Corwen boss Sion Tudor Jones. “Penrhyncoch have had four chances and scored three.”

Jonathan Evans, Steff Davies and Guto Huws handed Penrhyncoch the three points and leave Jones scratching his head.

“There wasn’t a lot between the two teams and even their manager would agree,” said manager Jones.

“They deal with the conditions better than us though in what wasn’t a football game really because of the wind, which was atrocious.

“We were against the wind in the first-half, so we were happy to keep it to 1-0 because we thought we’d get into the game in the second-half.

“But they dealt with playing against the wind better and they’ve scored from two set-pieces which is disappointing.”

Corwen remain second from bottom, but are now seven points adrift of safety, while Penrhyncoch, up to eighth place.

Penrhyncoch scorer Evans tweeted his delight at Saturday’s away win, writing: “Horrendous conditions but did what we do best and won ugly. GET IN.”

Colwyn Bay’s game at Llanrhaeadr was postponed.
