IT was a tale of two halves at The Rock over the weekend.

Bala Town delivered their best half of football of the season during the first half at Cefn Druids.

Colin Caton's charges dominated play and they looked like they were going to score during every attack.

Pressure from the outset saw Bala almost take the lead after only two minutes.

A teasing cross fizzed across the face of the goal before Chris Venables headed over from six yards.

Town found their stride quickly with Mike Hayes blazing over the crossbar from 10 yards and then Henry Jones’ shot took a deflection minutes later.

James Davies went close for the home side as he turned Ashley Morris, but Anthony Miley was able to clear.

Town went ahead after a quarter-of-an-hour.

Henry Jones’ pass arrived to Mike Hayes, who backheeled the ball into the net from around three yards out.

Five minutes later and it was 2-0.

Kieran Smith’s great ball arrived to Steven Tames, who headed across the face of the goal for Henry Jones to head in at the back post.

Anthony Miley and Tames had further opportunities before the interval, but the game was totally turned on its head during the second half.

Druids came flying out of the blocks and they had the ball in the net just two minutes after the restart, but the goal was disallowed for a foul in the box.

The hosts capitalised on their sustained spell of pressure when James Davies pulled a goal back.

As Druids grew in confidence, chances came for Peate, Evans, Mudimu and Davies, with Bala having to stay strong to stay in the lead.

Ryan Kershaw’s strike from distance was brilliantly tipped over the bar by Ashley Morris, but it was finally level with six minutes left.

Former Lakesider Jordan Evans unleashed a stunning 25 yard strike into the far corner of the net to leave Morris with no chance.

It was a disappointing evening for the Lakesiders after such an impressive first half display, which should have seen them out of sight.
