IT was honours even when Bala's U-19s made the relatively short journey to face Connah’s Quay on a sunny Sunday afternon on Deeside.

There was a good start by both sides, with Sullivan's half-volley going wide for Quay and Bala's Ryan Rowlands fired over the crossbar after good work by Josh Jones in the opening 10 minutes.

Haley and Courtell had half chances for the home side, while Joe Edwards created havoc on the wing down the other end.

His looped delivery into the area was pushed away by the keeper and Wil Owen's follow-up effort blocked.

The game was being played at a quick pace, with David Lawson-Cooke seeing his shot being saved on 33 minutes, before Haley headed over for the Nomads.

Town should have been ahead on 38 minutes as a cross from the right found Edwards on the left, but he blazed over the bar from around seven yards out.

On the half-time whistle, Quay midfielder Dan Smith pulled up with a suspected knee ligaments injury, which required an ambulance to be called.

Play restarted and hour later and Charlie Williams broke the deadlock on 49 minutes to give Town the lead.

Nomads put pressure on their visitors as they tried to get back on level terms and they did so seven minutes from time via Conor Harwood.

It was a good team effort from the Lakesiders, who now travel to face The New Saints tomorrow evening (Thursday).
