Bala Town 1-2 Airbus UK Broughton (April 16 2010)

You can't beat playing away in the mountains; in the foothills of the Cambrians & the lee of Cwm Hirnnant lies the little town of Bala, stuffed with pubs and showing off its delightful hotchpotch neat ground of Maes Tegid. The 'Bus, clearly relaxed by the peaceful, picturesque scenery on the drive down, stood still as Bala Town, desperate to win with only one game left, helped themselves to a quick goal. The unthinkable third poor performance on the trot loomed like a ghostly relegational spectre in the evening sunshine. Thankfully they settled down & laid siege to Y Bala's goal for the whole of the first half, not getting much on target, however, other than Carl Owen bringing a Gordon Banks-style save off Leon Bimpson as the home side back peddled and pleaded constantly for some help from unsympathetic referee Kevin Parry, who coped well with the pressure of the night.
The second half saw Bala raise their game and go on the offensive a bit more but it was met in the character of the Airbus side not seen for a couple of games as  they just upped theirs to cope with the new threat & continue their own quest. The equaliser was brilliantly engineered by Danny Desormeaux, winning the ball on the right wing with Bala appealing for an earlier handball, bursting in towards the area and putting a perfect cross onto Carl Owen's head for the tall striker to gracefully flick into the far side of the net for 1-1.
Airbus continued to confidently soak up Bala's punts forward and almost got the winner, courtesy of Dessie, teeing himself up, head over the ball, after a weak Bimpson punch but disappointingly putting it past the post instead of getting it between them. It was only a taster, however, as they drove forward, again down the right wing; after some exquisite neat interplay, Ryan Edwards put in the kind of cross that won him his international cap, bulleting perfectly onto the forehead of Marc Lloyd-Williams, bursting his challenge aside to bulge the back of the net and win the points. It could have been wrapped up a minute into overtime as he ran through off a delicate Dessie pass in a one-on-one with Bimpson, the 'keeper holding his nerve 'til he saw the whites of Jiws' eyes to produce a terrific block when number three looked inevitable. Almost there.
