THE losing run has continued for Denbigh Town.

It's now three defeats on the trot for the lads from Central Park following their loss at home to a Corrig McGonigle-inspired Conwy Borough.

In mid-afternoon, there had been surface water on the pitch, however after sterling work from the groundstaff, the game was deemed playable.

Neither of the goalkeepers was forced into action in the early stages with the play concentrated around the centre of the pitch.

Conwy had the first chance on 24 minutes when McGonigle’s volley went just over.

At the other end, Denbigh had strong appeals for a penalty turned down after Mark Roberts appeared to be brought to the ground.

Conwy took the lead after half-an-hour.

From a free kick some 20 yards out, McGonigle's low shot evaded everyone and flew into the back of the net.

Conwy continued to put pressure on Denbigh and in the 37th minute, Dan Lloyd did well to make a vital tackle to thwart McGonigle.

Town’s best chance of the half came from a free kick on the edge of the box.

Lewis Sirrell and Pat Hinchcliffe worked a clever ploy, with the latter's effort going just wide.

Hinchcliffe and Allieu Sheriff had efforts on goal early in the second half, but Denbigh never found their rhythm.

Connor Harwood had a great chance to double the visitors' lead, but he was denied by Craig Vernon's save.

The second Conwy goal did arrive in the 58th minute.

McGonigle ran onto a great pass and he slid the ball past Vernon for his second goal.

It was game over seven minutes later when McGonigle completed his hat-trick by firing home another free kick from the edge of the area.

Denbigh enjoyed a better spell after this and Sam Downey's effort from 20 yards clipped the crossbar.

Substitute Jake Walker grabbed a consolation goal for Town in the 90th minute, but it was too late to really affect the outcome.
