LAST week certainly wasn't the best from the perspective of Bala Town.

Hot on the heels off their seven-goal thrashing versus The New Saints, the Lakesiders let a 2-0 lead slip to slump to defeat at home to Barry Town United.

It was a glorious afternoon at Maes Tegid, but the final outcome was far from glorious for the Lakesiders.

There was quite a slow start to proceedings, with both teams seeing plenty of the ball, but not creating anything of note in the early stages.

Barry fired over the crossbar in their first attempt, while down the other end, Cooper cleared Mike Hayes’ effort off the line.

As the half developed the chances started to come, with Cotterill firing inches wide from the edge of the box and Sean Smith let fly from 20 yards for Bala.

Chris Venables and Henry Jones combined on the left allowing a cross to arrive to Chris Seargeant, but he blazed over, prior to Jones seeing his close range shot being pushed away before the interval.

Bala began the second half brilliantly and they went in front seven minutes after the restart.

Chris Venables broke the deadlock when he headed home for his ninth league goal of the campaign.

Town were applying plenty of pressure and the second goal came just two minutes later.

After a spell of pressure, the ball arrived to Kieran Smith and he drove low into the net from around 10 yards out.

It could have been three-nil when Sean Smith blasted over the crossbar from the edge of the D.

However, the match was turned on its head with a crazy six-minute spell that saw Jordan Cotterill, Kayne McLaggon and Momodou Touray grab three quickfire goals.

As much as they tried to get back into the game, Bala just couldn’t do it and their afternoon went from bad to worse when McLaggon and then Drew Fahiya wrapped up another two goals for the visitors, which also sealed Barry's place in the Europa League this summer.
